When douche bag rich white are your main characters and the only likable one among them is a drug ingesting hippie, your project got problems. Now I could have done the smart thing. I saw who directed this steaming pile of suck. It was the clown who gave us mediocre films like Silent Hill Revelation. He later tried to get us to buy into Megan Fox being a bad ass action star in Rogue. Nope I should have said no. But I like bad movies so I gave it a go.
Yikes, this movie just sucks.
Actress Rebecca Romijn plays Lauren, a woman who heads on her dream vacation with her husband, Jack (Philip Winchester), and their two kids… only for their African adventure to turn into a fight for survival.
A fight that didn’t need to happen other than the fact that the shady father who booked this lavish trip is covering up the fact that he might be losing his job. He hates his step daughters hippie boyfriend and can’t deal with the fact his son is gay. So he’s constantly trying over impress his family and is quite an asshole when doing so.
He takes the family on a self guided tour and when he allows his son who can’t drive stick to get too close to some wildlife, their vehicle is totaled and they become stranded in the African wilderness. This dad is winning no father of the year awards.
After being chased by hyenas, rhinos, and one tiger, they run across some poachers within the film’s final 30 minutes to circle back around and make you think that this film is really about bringing awareness to animals being slaughtered by poachers for their horns, tusks, etc.
The CGI sucks, the story is basic, and worst of all you leave the film not liking any of the characters.
Just an overall bad, bad movie that HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience suggests to take a hard pass on!
Shoot this movie in the head! DOUBLE TAP!
