What’s It About
A worthless mommy(Melissa George) who sucks at taking care of her child, and likes to sail overboard with her guy-friends finds herself in a shitload of trouble when the yacht she sailed in hits a storm and is forced to board a ocean liner to get to safety. And apparently, she feels like she knows this place and more than everything, there is a lone killer onboard(it might sound like a typical slasher but it is not).
The premise of the whole movie is splendid. To avoid spoilers, I’m not elaborating much, but it’s pretty interesting. Add some good acting and direction with that and obviously you’ll get a decent enough movie. I’m not that familiar with Melissa George but she did an outstanding job in this film. Michael Dorman and Liam Hemsworth backed her up in a good way.
This movie made me think. And there is these WTF moments that caught me off guard, and at some scenes I was like HOLY SHIT! and I kept wondering what’s gonna happen next. The action is pretty neat and done in a nice way. There’s these moments when I didn’t know what’s going on and BOOM! Shotgun violence, the terror, the building-up tension, everything just worked for me.
I love angry ocean. When the mighty blue ocean is pissed and is ready to kick any sorts of ship’s ass, I find myself satisfied. In here, the director did a great job visualizing this scene.
I know, what the fuck, right? Not Really, this is nothing compared to what’s coming.
So, what’s the point then? The ending revealed to us the mystery but what’s the point?
******MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD********
So, they are stuck in a time period and the whole thing is repeating over and over again. What happens to the rest of the world? What happens to the other people around who knows about them? I found myself very unsatisfied with the ending and was expecting a REAL SOLUTION. And there wasn’t any. This bothers me whenever I think of the movie.
No gore. Quite a good amount of action movie type violence. No REAL nudity but Melissa George has got a nice pair of legs.
A very entertaining movie that kept me at the edge of my seat. The ending left me blank and asking for more. Great nonetheless. I’ll give this a 7 out of 10.
