SANCTUM (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

the film defines suspense drama with its non-stop unpredictability. Director Alister Grierson does an outstanding job exploring and portraying the dangerous world of spelunking, the importance of timing, and how a sequential series of small judgment errors can significantly impact routine caving activities. Richard Roxburg, Ioan Gruffudd, Rhys Wakefield, and Dan Wyllie act their part as if one is watching a home video of the entire real-life experience.
