Sanctum (3D)

The only way out is down.


Sanctum (3D)
James Cameron has his name on this but was not really involved. A group of explorers are poking around in a vast cave system, when a flash flood outside leads to them being trapped inside. The only way out is to go down and look for an unknown exit into the sea, and then hope then can surface from there. Things do not go well and soon we are into who-dies-next territory. Reviews have been mixed. This movie is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 3D version.

What the Critics say

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconSanctum tells the story of a terrifying adventure in an incompetent way. Some of it is exciting, the ending is involving, and all of it is a poster child for the horrors of 3-D used badly.
8
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconA suspenseful 90-plus minutes whose smattering of deficiencies are outweighed by its positive qualities which include, on balance, its 3-D.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe movie ultimately reveals itself as a pretender with no balls. Creatively, it's all wet.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconSanctum is beautifully photographed, and it makes better use of 3-D technology than most, but that doesn't make up for its ham-handed script and lifeless cast.
