Adrian Brody Gets WRECKED On DemandMarch 16, 2011


Adrian Brody Gets WRECKED On Demand

IFC Films

On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: WRECKED (Phase 4 Films).

 

Adrian Brody Gets WRECKED On Demand
By Adam Schartoff
 
 
What is it about WRECKED that pulls you in? It doesn’t necessarily distinguish itself in any particular way. In fact, it might remind of you of several other films, two that are currently in theaters.
 
One is UNKNOWN. That movie, starring Liam Neeson, also includes a leading character in a car crash and who loses his memory. The second is Danny Boyle’s 127 HOURS starring the Academy Award announcer James Franco. In that latter film, the hero Aron Ralston, spends the majority of the film pinned between a rock and a hard place. 
 
In WRECKED, Adrian Brody portrays a character credited as “The Man” who suffers a similar fate to Ralston for a good portion of time. In the case of WRECKED, our hero has the additional burden of amnesia. Once dislodged from the auto wreck in which he has been trapped for the first 20 minutes or so of the film, he spends the balance trying to figure out how he got to the bottom of the ravine and how the heck to crawl out.

It’s a fun predicament to watch, much like those scenes in CAST AWAY just after Tom Hanks has become shipwrecked.
