Okay so the concept of this film is pretty simple. A lover of the outdoors and adventure exploring the desert and loves rock climbing, falls down a gorge and gets stuck, sound boring? Well its absolutely not. This is a very clever thriller and is brilliantly wrote. The biggest point this film makes is how many of us, if we're going for a bike ride or a hike or even just a leisurely stroll do not actually tell people exactly WHERE we are going? This film shows how dangerous this can be. James franco decides to just wake up one morning and go exploring without telling anyone where he is going or infact that is he going, so the concept of this film is how can you find someone when you dont know they're missing?
Upon going out into the wild he gets himself into agonising trouble and where most friends and family know that when you dont call back that night or answer the phone till morning its because you said you were going camping or away for the weekend, but what happens when you havent told anyone you have plans or where you are going? You can not hold on to the hope that people will realise you are missing when you are in conditions where survival beyond 2 or 3 days would be nothing short of amazing.
James franco is brilliant in this role as the film is solely based around him in the gorge. He plays a character in a film without a big storyline and a mass amount of other characters to help the story. The whole film will put the chills into anyone who enjoys hiking and those who dont will probably find another excuse to not do so! This film is a must see!
Summary: Good film that anyone can enjoy.
