The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Wrecked (2010)

Starring: Adrien Brody
Director: Michael Greenspan

A man awakens in a wrecked car at the bottom of a ravine. He battles the elements of the secluded location and attempts to remember how he ended up there.

My Take:
In order to pull this type of movie off, basically a one person movie for 90 minutes, you need either a great character and an engaging actor. While Brody certainly has the acting chops, the character falls short.
Most of the movie is spent trying to figure out if he's hallucinating or actually trying to pull himself from the wreckage. Then suddenly at the end of the movie, he remembers everything.
It's not a horrible movie but one that will easily be forgotten.

Rating: In the middle
