Directed by Alister Grierson
Starring Richard Roxburgh, Ioan Gruffudd, Rhys Wakefield
Sanctum was heavily advertised as an unbelievable 3D experience when it was coming out to theaters. I admit, in 3D on the big screen this underground and underwater adventure may have looked amazing but this film exactly goes to show that 3D is nothing more than a gimmick since when you take away the 3 dimensional element, all you're left with is a by-the-numbers, annoingly predictable and staggeringly badly acted borefest inside a bland cave system. The whole film is a let down on every aspect and only redeeming qualities are some amazing underwater visuals and a wee bit of sense of adventure in the first reel which sadly disappers when things go south for our characters. What the hell?
