Almost Great

This movie could have been excellent (or at least rated above 5 / 10 stars) with one or two less loooong drawn out scenes of the main character crawling up (or down or over or through) the woods, stopping and looking out into the wild. Seriously, I wanted to shoot myself from about minutes 45 to 75. I suppose the screenwriter had no choice but to pad the movie since it was already going to be relatively short (hmmm, maybe it could be a Short instead?).

You would think that after 5 years of writing there would be much more than crawling and panning forest shots. Oh well.

Give me the first and last 30 minutes of the movie and I would be very happy with the outcome.

Small film, simple story, but entertaining.

Wrecked is an interesting little low budget film that has a fairly promising premise that should attract the viewers (because the poster certainly won't).

A man wakes up in a car wreck in the woods with no idea of who he is or why he got there, with his only company being that of the dead body in the seat next to him. It soon becomes apparent that help is not coming and he has to get out of the car. But once he's free, his troubles have only just begun, as he finds out that he is not alone in the woods.

There is a lot to like about this little film. Adrien Brody does a great job of displaying how painful and lonely it would be if one was trapped in this particular situation, and of course the film rests on his acting and the great imagery and camera work. The film never becomes too slow, and there is always a new little plot point or clue that leads the viewer on.

Of course one should not go into this film expecting a sordid tale of survival and battles with mountain lions. Instead, what we have is a psychological exploration, where the woods serve as the back drop for all of the character's guilts and desires, and soon we are doubting what is real and what isn't. Think of J.G. Ballard's "Concrete Island" or Stephen King's "Gerald's Game".

While it is ultimately weak with a so-so story, "Wrecked" is worth watching at least once just to enjoy the work of Brody and the fluid flow of the film.

Could Have Been a Great Short

A man (Adrien Brody) awakes amnesic in a wrecked car in the woods with his leg trapped in the front panel. Sooner he finds that he is in a inhospitable area with wild animals surrounding him and that there is a dead man on the back seat and another one on the land. When he listens to the news on the radio, he learns that three armed and dangerous men had heisted a bank and killed the security guard. The man finally releases his leg from the panel and finds the stolen money in the trunk; then he concludes he is the third thief. He unsuccessfully tries to find a way out of the jungle while he has flashes of recollections of his past.

"Wrecked" is a low-budget one-actor film that could have been a great short. The performance of Adrien Brody is awesome but the running time is too long for a plot that is actually a storyline where nothing happens. The director dawdles the viewer with repetitive and confused scenes and in the end I was bored and anxious to see the conclusion. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Armadilha do Destino" ("Trap of the Destiny")
