Like watching a candle burn
23 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Definitely not a thriller as claimed.

The description mentions that they are stuck in "unpredictable waters" and the DVD cover looks like the movie might be a little exciting... as far as rough winds, waves or heavy rain goes there is absolutely none of that, it's just 2 losers in a boat talking about how pathetic their lives are. Half way through the film you start to feel like you don't even care if they get rescued or die. I was hoping towards the end a rogue wave would hit the boat and they'd both head-butt each other knocking each other out and drowning. One of the worst movies I've seen this year.

Definitely a movie to avoid unless you're under the age of 10.
