As an avid cave diver and friend of the late Wes Skiles, to whom this film is dedicated, I thought that the movie and the underwater scenes were done with accuracy and were visually amazing. The characters do lack some depth and I wish they would have stayed true to the real story, however the effects were amazing as was the cinematography. The opening scenes gave you a sense of what it is really like to be a cave diver. There were some things that bothered me in the movie, such as full face masks and the use of re breathers without a back up air source. Also the fact that the divers <more>
didn't have back up lights or line arrows with them. There isn't a "true cave diver" that would even think of entering a cave without proper equipment, however, to the general public, you wouldn't ever know the difference. All in all, a great movie that I will go see again! Ignore the other reviews, great movie!
Great on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller... (by cjrmnf)
If you liked "The Cave" or "The Descent", you will love "Sanctum". It's realistic and could happen to anyone anywhere in the world. It keeps you nearly holding your breath and clutching your seat for the full ride. It provides interesting subplot drama between characters and it keeps you asking "what's or who's next?".I'm admittedly a sci-fi guy but I don't think you have to be into that genre to get this movie. It's really one of those movies that attacks every fear possible the dark, drowning, heights, being attacked, et <more>
cetera and dares you to look away! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Only thing I'd change about it is I wouldn't take my 9yr-old son with me next time. He was afraid to nod off in the car on the way home and he swears he's going to have nightmares for a week!
When Poltergeist was released in 1982 there were a lot of assumptions from certain quarters that the credited director Tobe Hooper was not actually the real director, and that ownership of the picture actually belonged to the Executive Producer Steven Spielberg. One look at Poltergeist and it's easy to see why some would think that. If you actually subscribe to the idea of the 'auteur' theory, then it's obvious Spielberg's stamp is on every frame. What's that got to do with Sanctum? A lot actually In 1989 James Cameron made the brilliant and criminally underrated <more>
movie 'The Abyss'. It was met by mixed reviews, despite being that rare animal in Hollywood: an original story. It was also a slow burner of a film, taking its time to rev up before cutting loose and racking up the tension - kind of like a lot of Cameron's films, actually. We have a similar scenario here: an underwater epic that's very Cameronesque in every sense of the word except it's directed by someone else a director by the name of Alister Grierson. So how much of the movie can be attributed to James and how much of it is Alister's? It's anyone's guess. But like the aforementioned Poltergeist, it's got the Cameron branding iron on every frame.Sanctum tells the gripping story apparently 'based' on real events - somewhat loosely one would imagine of a group of cave explorers led by veteran adventurer Frank Richard Roxburgh who becomes stranded in a deep network of caves after a tsunami strikes the surface. Unfortunately for them, their surroundings become engulfed by the deluge of water from the jungle above, forcing them to flee from the rapidly rising waters and try to make their way to where the caves exit to the ocean. Decisions that were made earlier with perhaps a lot less foresight than there should have been comes back to haunt them... Ten fold Worse for Frank, his estranged son Josh Rhys Wakefield is also along for the expedition, putting additional stress and even more guilt on him, but it makes him even more determined to guide everyone to safety. As you can imagine their efforts don't go entirely to plan and everything goes pear shaped after that.It's fair to say Sanctum take its time setting up the story and the characters. For a moment you wonder where it's all going then something happens that's along the lines of a certain famous scene in 'The Abyss' and you're immediately sucked into the story from that point onwards. The movie reels you in, drags you down and very rarely lets you up for air. The slow build is necessary when you see what comes after it: it's virtually one crisis after another after another with Director Grierson doing a great job ratcheting up the tension to stunning levels. Just when you think it can't get any worse for the protagonists, some other dastardly thing happens to them. It's great filmmaking and it's sustained for the entire running time. You're on the edge of your seat right to the very end.The entire cast is very good, but Richard Roxburgh really stands out. At first he's not really too likable and maybe even a bit too gritty and steely, but once that veneer is cracked, you get to really like the guy. In fact it's the entire father-son thing that gives this movie such gravitas. Without it, it would be just another 'lost in caves' flick. Ioan Gruffudd, last seen working for Cameron in Titanic, plays a totally different beast here and does a sort of a comic book turn, but adds something else for the cast to go up against besides the deadly caverns.The films says a lot about the human spirit and what happens to it when we find ourselves cornered like animals in life or death scenarios. It ably gets across how savage we are capable of becoming once the instinct for survival overtakes us. Some very effective scenes demonstrate this where decisions are made that can be deemed wrong or right – depending on your viewpoint. Nothing is black and white. There is no clearly set out rules when it comes to trying to get yourself out of a predicament alive.The use of 3D here is subtle and effective. While there's no debris being hurled in your face every few minutes, the 3D seems to bring the water engulfed caverns closer to your eyes. You almost think that if you reached out with your hand, you would actually touch water. The tunnels open up effectively in some shots while being disquieting tight and cramped in others.As mentioned previously, this still looks like a James Cameron movie. So much so in fact, you can't help but wonder why he didn't actually direct it. It has the whole underwater theme like 'The Abyss' – even the scuba helmets and dialog underwater reminds you of that fact. Like a lot of his movies – from 'The Terminator' right up to 'Avatar', it starts off slow slow before abruptly shifting into gear. Even the poster is pure Cameron. Heck, even the title lettering has the same little glimmer of light that was on 'The Abyss' poster – you'd almost be forgiven for thinking this is some sort of sequel.But that doesn't detract from the movie in any way. Sanctum is a terrific and very exciting film. While deeply claustrophobic and at times unsettling, it remains entertaining on every level. It's a movie that if you let it hook you, it won't let you go. As with 'The Abyss', it will probably divide a lot people's opinions; but also as with 'The Abyss', its popularity will inevitably grow over time. But that's no excuse for missing it on the big screen now. See it. In 3D. Just don't have an Abyss style injustice happen for the second time. It doesn't deserve it. Highly recommended.
Take it from a caver, the details are very accurate (by EHKastning)
Sanctum is an action thriller involving exploration of an extensive, world-class cave system in Papua New Guinea. The movie is inspired by an actual flood event in an extensive cave in the Nullarbor Plain of Australia in 1988. It is not a documentary, but designed to be a realistic, albeit embellished, account that includes non-stop action as the team is faced with its deadly situations and decisions. Although released in 2-D, 3-D, and IMAX formats, Sanctum is not a science fiction or horror movie. There are no monsters, weird creatures, on humanoid inhabitants, such as are found in the <more>
recent films, The Cave, The Cavern, and Descent Parts 1 and 2 . And it is not a fantasy underground adventure like the recent remakes of Journey to the Center of the Earth and Alice in Wonderland. Sanctum is about caving, an adventure sport that is practiced by knowledgeable and safety-minded people throughout the world.Most movie goers may not recognize the authenticity of the techniques and equipment used in the film. As one who has spent over 45 years exploring and studying caves in over 35 states and several countries, I am familiar with modern caving in some of the great cave systems on the planet and I personally know many of the cavers who are making new discoveries every year. Therefore, I can attest to the great care that the director Alister Grierson and writer-producer Andrew Wight have taken to provide realism to the cave setting. In fact, Wight was a survivor of the Nullarbor event and is an experienced caver and diver. That having been said, Sanctum takes some liberties to create an exciting story. Nearly every activity in caving is included in this epic, such as climbing, rappelling and other rope work, squeezing and negotiating tight passageways, and of course cave diving. This story shows what can go wrong with each of these if care is not taken or if safety is ignored. Sanctum is an adventure thriller that consists of a long string of incidents, dilemmas, and solutions. Each situation is believable on its own merit and has happened at one time or another in caving. But in Sanctum, all of these have been combined, one after another, and continually pose challenges and demand solutions. It reminds me of the classic and entertaining cliff- hanger movies of old. This makes for an exhausting tale in which the audience feels the tense and claustrophobic situations. It is unlikely that such a string of events would ever be encountered by a single caving expedition. However, individually accidents do happen, although they are relatively rare because cavers strictly abide by established safety rules.What disturbs me is that many of the reviewers of the movie to date miss the point of the film and show an ignorance of what caves and caving are like. Here are some typically unfair remarks and why these are so."There is little character development." Caving is very focused. When you are underground, you only think about your surroundings and mission. You do not think about the outside world and your life there, much less about your interpersonal relationships with your fellow cavers. It is true that when caving, you learn a lot about your compatriots and their personalities just like in the movie , but you do belabor interpersonal relationships. Team members are selected based on their proved track record underground. If there are challenges and threatening conditions, you focus on those as a team, as in the film. Many reviewers apparently wanted more psycho-drama among the protagonists."The dialog is terse, unrealistic, and too loud." I disagree. Under the emergency conditions such as shown in the film, the dialog of the characters would be similar. There would be a leader and a plan would develop, just as we witnessed in 2010 in the case of the trapped Chilean miners. As for loudness and screaming, this is the only way to make yourself heard in the presence of running water in the echoing confines of cave passages. I know this from experience. One's senses in a cave are very much focused on sight and sound and the immediate surroundings. "It is a tedious tale." Yes, trying to escape through a cave system that is flooding could easily be tedious and, given the extent of the cave in Sanctum, finding routes and traversing them would take considerable time. Cave exploration is not a fast process. I have been on hundreds of caving trips, including some grueling ones in long and complex cave systems. For me, the representation of the features in the cave and the techniques of exploration are portrayed quite well in Sanctum. Again, this movie is an adventure story that accurately shows what caves are like, even though it combines many of the dangers into a thrilling series of unfortunate events. It is a fictional tale, but realistically portrayed.Reviewers who expected Sanctum to be a high-culture movie or one that explores interpersonal interactions among the characters have missed the point completely. Unless they have gone on trips into extensive and wild caves, they have little idea of what caves and caving are really like and what this movie is all about. They can not possibly understand the dynamic among cavers under adverse conditions. I find more faults with the reviewers' logic and understanding than they can legitimately find in the film. The movie stays true to what extensive caves are like and the techniques used to explore them. Given that, it is also one heck of an adventure thriller.
I am a movie snob and loved it - can't believe how bad the reviews are... (by ramair350)
This movie entertains from start to finish. Are the characters "two dimensional"? To me not in any sense ha ha, yes the movie is 3D, lousy pun intended .But seriously, for two hours you are taken on a brutal subterranean adventure. I liked the fact that it IS believable. It isn't just action - it is a true human drama and shows the good and bad that can come from people in a life or death situation. And I didn't think it was predictable for the most part, anyway . I am guessing that the reviewers just didn't like the characters, but that is no fault of the actors; the <more>
characters were quite realistic, which I considered a huge plus, while others might have preferred something else. I do need to give a disclaimer that I did not research the "true" story and watched purely from the perspective that it is 100% fiction, so I'm not saying this is an accurate depiction of real events. But it sure seemed like something that could happen.It isn't "The Black Swan". It isn't "True Grit". It won't be sweeping the Academy Awards. But was it entertaining and worth the price admission? Without question - I actually found it more enjoyable and gripping than anything I have seen in some time. Highly recommended - give it a fair chance!
After reading many negative reviews here, I thought I would add my spin on the movie. I loved it.. The scenery is great, you believe as though you could be there trapped, a long way underground and hoping you can hold your breath..Yes as others say, at the start you may not like any of the characters, but this develops pretty well along the way.By the end you are caring about who gets out alive/dies and watch a father/son relationship develop.Rhys Wakefield is particularly great in this flick. Having moved well on since his home and away days to an established Australian film Actor.A great <more>
Forget the critics, this is an awesome movie. It's fast-paced, action-packed and spectacular. I was tense the whole time and came out feeling like I'd been holding my breath for hours.Seriously, most critics seem more interested in showing how cynical and cool they are than actually enjoying a great adventure film. I've read lots of reviews, so I'll address a few of the complaints made.Bad dialogue: It's not Shakespeare, but it sets up the relationships between characters quickly and serves the action well. It also manages to explain the basics of caving and scuba diving <more>
which most of the audience would be unfamiliar with without seeming too preachy.Bad acting: I thought everyone was pretty great with what they had to do. Again, it's not bloody Shakespeare.Predictable: not to me. Yes, they're stuck in a cave so there's only so many things that can happen. But what does happen is really bloody exciting. I guess if you spend your whole life watching movies as critics do then any action movie would be predictable after a while.Unlikeable characters: Um, since when did every character have to be likable? And even if you don't particularly like a character, surely you don't want them to die a horrible death down a cave. The truth is some of the characters you really like, some grow on you and some you almost want to drown with your own bare hands. So a good mix.Weak roles for women: I disagree. The women are put in freaky situations and react in human ways. Though I didn't quite understand what happened to Victoria - that's one thing the film could have done slightly better.I've also heard critics complain about too much swearing seriously, if you've ever spent time around real-life explorers they're generally not too concerned with social niceties, especially in life-or-death situations . And some reviewers complained that there were no monsters in the cave - seriously! That was what was so great about the story - it was extreme but it all could have happened. Man vs nature and vs each other - much more interesting than another monster flick.Anyway, Sanctum is excellent. Go see it.
Another Great James Cameron Roller Coaster Ride (by greg-604)
It is as if James Cameron invented 3D just for this film. To be immersed in the cave diving world in 3D is a true cinematic experience. Though Cameron is the EP and not the director hats off to Alister Grierson's job as the helmer there are Cameronesque traits. The characters are not the standard Hollywood good guys and bad guys. They have their flaws. are we supposed to like them? I think not. We are supposed to trust them though in the face of adversity. The father-son relationship is the spine of the story and it is pitched nicely in this. Great locations and sets so it has to be <more>
experienced on the big screen it would be amazing in Imax . Great also to see a film set in New Guinea. I liked it.
It seems that lately hating is a popular thing that everyone is doing. useless, and a waste of time. But lets keep this short and simple.This movie is amazing, pulls you in. The 3D really makes you feel like your inside there with them. suffocating, accelerating, exciting!Great movie about a father and son relationship that develops as the journey goes on. A movie about survival and risking your life for other, seeing what people are willing to do for survival. A must see for film lovers!Directing was great.The acting was great.The music was good.The 3D completed it.8/10 easily
