Rust Creek (2018)
User ReviewsReview this title
I know that in our current overly PC culture we have a few movies that are thinly-disguised excuses for male bashing (I'm looking at you "Bad Moms"), but this isn't one of them. The main (and only) female character is smart and brave but not unrealistically so. She worsens her situation by making some understandable mistakes. The three bad characters are made up of two men who are truly vile and one guy who, if left on his own, would probably make kinder choices but he's too stupid and weak to not go along with the other two. That's it for the bad men. All the other men have admirable character traits with one whose desire to fight injustice and protect the main character rises to the level of heroic.
This is a good movie made by competent people and I would recommend it.
Cool thriller with a decent story, well acted, good characters.
Cool seeing this young woman knowing how to defend herself. Hopefully that inspires more to take their safety into their own hands. More women learning that would do way more to stop real sexual assault than the pink-hat hashtag movement of the week ever will.
I give it a 6.5/10
I was hoping for a gruesome Wrong Turn clone but sadly not!
Some good acting, I have always liked John Marshall Jones and he puts in the best performance as always but the story has been done to death a hundred times before and there is no suspense or real drama.
Its pretty standard TV movie fair you would find on a wet Sunday afternoon on Paramount channel.
Maybe that's the theme with today's lack of common sense in people?
1) gets off highway to get past traffic. Fine, but follows "google maps" to a dead end. Instead of turning around and retracing her route, she continues until the road becomes nothing more than a path. 2) Stops,gets out of the car to read the map. Who the hell does that when it's cold outside? You sit in the seat, spread the map out in front of you and figure out where you are. DUH 3) Gets stabbed, runs away. Fine, Removes sweatshirt to patch stab, then leaves it behind. DUH 4) runs around for hours without tending the wound. Removes socks to treat wound the next day, removes socks to check, runs away yet again leaving "bandage" behind. 5) sees car wrecked by pursuers. Doesn't bother getting warm clothes, more items to bandage wound, immediately grabs phone and wanders around like a moron with her arm in the air looking for a signal once again, ignoring the wound in her leg.
I'm only 30 minutes in, I'll keep watching to see what other idiotic things she does.
People would not just believe the first thing they see and you can't just bump off a police officer if you are a police officer yourself and within 2 minutes they are off the hook.
Other than that the trio of main leads were Strong, relatable and they kept me interested. The relationship between them is interesting and believable.
I enjoyed it, was worth a watch, different although it's not going to smash any records.
This is another girl hunted in the woods film without the thrills of a decent chase and hunt. Sawyer is a long distance runner, which played slightly into the film but was not a major plot point without a flashback. I thought the acting was decent, but it was apparent they were struggling with a bad script. Hermione Corfield had a decent soft Southern accent for a Brit.
