Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The director Alister Grierson, not grasping that bad dialogue is sometimes best delivered quietly, encourages his actors to shout and thrash about, and so they do, like fish out of water and performers out of their depth.
Rotten: Sometimes the sets look like, well, Styrofoam. So do the actors.
Rotten: Actually being stuck in a remote waterlogged grotto might be more tolerable than enduring this disaster of an adventure movie.
Rotten: "Sanctum" is a movie that tries to make you feel that there's this cool thing going on that everybody knows about except you.
must see eyes wide open
Not for those who's life has been spent sitting in a arm chair--you won't get it. But anyone who has lived on the edge outside the comfort and safety of home
will relate to natures awesome secrets and unforgivness to show.
Not worth it.
It's nicely photographed and well shot but that's about it. The script was stupid, the acting was bland and wooden, and the story isn't really anything new nor is the plot. This movie isn't worth your time I'd skip it.
This movie was great.. It is definitely a movie that will pull you through the emotions from sad to edge of your seat pissed off. It is based on actual events and seeing what this boy goes through in order to stay alive is absolutely unreal! Definitely worth watching.
