Too much sand, too little action
8 December 2015 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Wild Desert has enough ingredients to be a cool enough action movie. A group of seven friends decide to cross the desert of Gobi by bike, and end up in a big mess when in the middle of the trip, they cross their paths with some bad guys that are doing some bad stuff in the middle of nowhere.

Action movies, even very good ones, don't need a PhD in the plot department to be a fun time. You can have people just running around from one place to the other if you have good enough action, cool characters, some funny lines... There are endless possibilities.

So a group of friends getting mixed up with bad guys in a deserted place seems like a good enough idea. Sadly, the movie lacks in every department and becomes a bore even if it is just a little bit over one hour and a half.

For starters the action seems to have been directed by a guy that has seen too many direct-to-DVD movies but didn't understand the basics of those kind of movies: too many slow motions, weird angles, not interesting or clear action. It deserves an special mention the music, as they seem to have stolen the sound effects from some seventies action movie. On top of that, the poor attempts at humor fall flat. And the story puts incongruity on top of incongruity, with the characters taking stupid and unnecessary decisions.

If I want to see endless shots of a beautiful deserted landscape I will check some random nature video. And I won't have to suffer the annoying sound of the bikes.
