A group of friends are on a business trip to meet the owner of an Indian business. On the sea, they come across a man in need of serious help. After rescuing him, the boat sinks and they wind up on a deserted island where they learn about the trouble the man came from.

This movie was terrible; half the time I wanted to fall asleep, the other half I was marveling at the lack of continuity within the script. I wasn’t fond of the actors either. In fact, I have a friend that adores Brianna Brown and this film made her look like she has terrible taste. I’ve never seen her in anything else, but I might seek out something with her in it just to appease my buddy.

The script was ridiculous and heavy on cliché (when it came to wording). Plot-wise, it was like the writer was trying TOO hard to make sure you couldn’t expect anything. People have an issue with recipe movies, well, this is the polar opposite. As a recipe, a plot will be completely by the book with no deviation, whether or not the script calls for it. The opposite is a movie that refuses to hold true to a story and will actually force components in order to make sure they never do anything by the book. Keep in mind, I’m not condemning films that are different or shocking. When those aspects come naturally to a story, you wind up with an instant classic – something that sets the bar for future generations of film. But if you’re just trying to shove that square peg into a round hole, viewers notice.

I would not recommend this film.
