Plot Summary

On the road to a high-powered lunch meeting, smooth-talking ad man, Jackson Alder, is brainstorming his next big pitch when he is blindsided by Mother Nature. Swallowed up by a devastating mudslide, he awakens to darkness. Alone underneath an avalanche of mud, his certainty of rescue gives way to a horrifying reality - no one is coming. With oxygen and time running out, Jackson clings to the unfinished life he left behind. Shedding his suit and surveying the limited tools he has at his disposal, Jackson refuses to go down without a fight. Pushing himself beyond his physical and mental boundaries, he must ask himself the ultimate question: What would you do to survive?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: At times the groan and scream of collapsing metal sounds so authentic you might mistake Jackson's heavy breathing for your own. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: "Nothing to do but wait," Jackson says early on, in the hopes of a quick response from emergency services. That's sitting through "Detour" in a nutshell. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Mar 28, 2013

Fresh: This taut and effective thriller produces maximum suspense with a minimum of means. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: "Detour" does a fine job of giving drivers yet another reason to stress out, but that anxiety doesn't extend to its hero's fate. – Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, Mar 29, 2013
