Movie: Sanctum (2011)

The only way out is down.

Sanctum (2011) is an action-thriller-adventure movie produced by James Cameron and inspired by the movie's co-writer Andrew Wight's near-death experience of leading a diving expedition miles into a system of underwater caves, then having to find a way out after a freak storm collapsed the entrance. (Source: Wikipedia)

Synopsis: Master diver Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh) and his team has been conducting an underwater cave exploration in Papua New Guinea's Esa-ala cave site for months. Frank's 17-year-old son Josh (Rhys Wakefield), financier Carl (Ioan Gruffudd), and Carl's girlfriend Victoria (Alice Parkinson) join the team at one point.

However, when a cyclone starts flooding the cave, the team is forced to find the way out as soon as possible. The cave will be flooded in no time and their air and light supplies are dwindling rapidly. To escape, they must navigate their way out through the unexplored underwater caves system that leads to the sea. Will they survive?

The whole message from this movie is the timeless 'man-versus-nature' and 'nature-versus-man' theme; and of course, survival of the fittest.

In terms of action and suspense, you won't be disappointed. Most of the escape-to-survive and fall-to-death scenes will get your adrenaline pumping and give you that edgy feeling in your stomach. The mercy killing scenes will get your tear ducts active too. *sniff*

The acting is a bit melodramatic but I guess when you're trapped, panicking, and with slim chances of survival, you'll tend to shout at everyone around you. The ending is bittersweet, one that causes you to sigh in relief, and yet, you'll hope it'll happier.

Overall, this is a rather good movie.
It's also available in 3D for those who want a more cinematic experience. Let me know if you've watched the 3D version.
