When a couple in financial distress discover GPS coordinates that promise to lead to stolen gold they must partner with a pair of mysterious hitchhikers to enter the remote winter wilderness to recover the coins.
Jason R. Goode
In 1960s New York, Walter Stackhouse is a successful architect married to the beautiful Clara who leads a seemingly perfect life. But his fascination with an unsolved murder leads him into a spiral of chaos as he is forced to play cat-and-mouse with a clever killer and an overambitious detective, while at the same time lusting after another woman.
There's a solid cast in this slow burn thriller, as the first 30 minutes of the movie are most glacially paced. Lydia (Tricia Helfer) and Creighton (Luke Mably) have agreed to travel to a remote Bahamian island to try and patch up their marital troubles, stemming from an affair that Creighton admitted to.
While having dinner at a neighbor's home on the island, they return to find the villa where they're staying (owned by one of Creighton's clients) has been ransacked and all their valuables stolen. From that point on, all hell will break loose as mayhem and violence ensue, resulting in the couple fighting for their lives.
Some of the plot machinations here are highly implausible, but I thought, overall, the movie was not awful but it was not very good either. To note, there's raw language laced throughout the film and some explicit scenes as well.
Maybe a rental for a very rainy night.
