An intrepid team of explorers gets trapped in a complex underground cave system when a tropical storm makes it impossible to escape the same way they entered in this claustrophobic adventure drama from director Alister Grierson and executive producer James Cameron. Inspired by actual events, Sanctum tells the tale of Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh), a master diver intent on being the first to explore the Esa-ala cave system in the South Pacific. Shortly after Frank descends into the caves with a team that includes his teenage son, Josh (Rhys Wakefield), and expedition bankroller Carl Hurley (Ioan Gruffudd), a massive storm collapses the entrance to the system, forcing the adventurers to plunge deeper into the darkness in search of an alternate exit. With supplies quickly dwindling and water levels rapidly rising, Frank and his team surmise that their best hope for survival is to follow an underground river thought to empty into the ocean. But given that few explorers have ever even dared set foot in the Esa-ala system, no one quite knows for sure whether they're racing toward freedom, or another dead end. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Good adventure film. Thin script and acting was average but really enjoyable if you like these I'm stuck in a cave underwater type of films. 3D was decent, but I know I now prefer 2D regular films. Some really pretty scenery in this one.
I thought this was a really good movie. I don't think it is completely necessary to see it in 3D. It's not like Avatar where you HAVE to see it in 3D. I deffinately recomend it though. It kept my attention and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
I did not hear good things but no expect the best. I really enjoyed this movie one of the best for starting 2011. Did not get to see it in 3D but really good without. So many surprises in it. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with your mouth dropping open over and over. A must see of 2011. Will everyone make it out watch and find out
