From the sound of it, based on the bad acting and the misleading marketing, maybe they should have called the movie "Rectum" instead?
I wanted to make my headline very to the point, because the ad campaign for the new film "Sanctum" is sort of deceiving. James Cameron's name and the titles of "Avatar" and "Titanic" are all featured prominently in the trailer and the poster. However, let me make it clear: James Cameron did not direct this movie.
Cameron serves as an executive producer, which is something, but it's also kind of nothing. Also, is it me or does this look like the exact type of film that Cameron said would be bad for 3D? I mean, is there really much of a difference between this movie and "Piranha 3D?" OK -- this one has better production values, and well...? James Cameron's name.
Still, it looks loaded with cliches and bad acting. Even the official "Sanctum Social Conversation" seems to not be all that impressed (scroll down; it's still kind of funny).
Here is the film's official synopsis: "The 3D action thriller SANCTUM, from executive producer James Cameron, follows a team of underwater cave divers on a treacherous expedition to the largest, most beautiful and least accessible cave system on Earth. When a tropical storm forces them deep into the caverns, they must fight raging water, deadly terrain and creeping panic as they search for an unknown escape route to the sea."
Yeeaaahhh... I guess. It sure does look pretty though. Take a peek below and see what you think. If the imagery is worth the pain, you can catch "Sanctum" starting February 4, 2011.
