I was looking forward to this, it had all the promise of a great survival film and I was expecting to see something new, but the truth is its all been done before and done much better.
It was seriously lacking in suspense and ideas, I felt like Redford was thinking "man, this is the easiest pay cheque I've ever picked up". Im not sure what the writers were trying to achieve here, if this was a true story I could understand the point of it but it wasn't.
Without spoiling the ending it was a joke, it was clearly an idea that sounded good on paper but simply didn't work on screen and felt like an easy cop out of a film that was heading nowhere. The scenes were unnecessarily long and the lack of dialogue just made it more painful.
If like me you love a good survival film you will not enjoy this, there is so much they could have done to make it a great film and the 7/10 rating is just laughable and misleading.
