Story


The 3-D 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.

Master diver Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh) has explored the South Pacific's Esa-ala Caves for months. But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood, Frank's team-including 17-year-old son Josh (Rhys Wakefield) and financier Carl Hurley (Ioan Gruffudd)-are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. Soon, they are confronted with the unavoidable question: Can they survive, or will they be trapped forever?

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a suspenseful 90-plus minutes whose smattering of deficiencies are outweighed by its positive qualities..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..loaded with extreme-sports action sequences and a near-pornographic assortment of outdoor gear..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..a solid, old-fashioned action yarn filled with the very latest dive gear and the oldest plot formula in the movie-maker's playbook..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
