Four friends head up to a lakeside cabin for a weekend of fun and fireworks. Their good times go south when three of them are accidentally locked in a sweltering sauna. They must find a way to escape before the temperature reaches the lethal 247°F limit the human body can withstand before shutting down.
Here's another perfect example of a movie being too clean and clear. It was obviously shot on an HD camera and it shows. The clarity of the picture does nothing to hide the fact that what should be an old cabin looks to have been just assembled by a set crew. The cinematography doesn't completely detract from the movie but it fails to keep the viewer immersed in what they're watching either.
A great 5.1 stereo surround mix delivers hissing gas, fireworks, bloodcurdling screams, and other special effects just the way genre fans love them - loud and blaring throughout their home theater. David Laurie's musical score is a step above the usual indie film electronic and synthesized instrument fare. It complements the inferior movie perfectly and gives it an extra depth it requires.
Special features for the film aren't going to add much incentive for consumers to buy it. There's feature commentary with producer / director Levan Bakhia.Read more ›
Four friends head out to an uncles cabin which has a recently built in sauna. Drunken antics occur and three of the friends accidentally get trapped in the sauna when the other drunken friend knocks a small step ladder in front of the door than passes out on the couch.
This movie is beyond boring except for maybe the last 20 minutes which are still nothing special. Let me put it this way, the film is so dull and boring it took me 3 days to finish it and I'm mad at myself for even wasting the time to watch it. The only reason I finished it was so I could write up a review on amazon about it.
If you absolutely have to watch a film about people trapped in a sauna than be my guest, check out "247 F" but don't be mad when your done with it and find out its a total waste of your time. If you want to watch a great movie about people trapped in a claustrophobic setting than do yourself a favor and skip this film and watch "Frozen".
The only reason this got 2 stars was because of Scout Taylor-Compton, other than that this film is already erased and forgotten from my memory.
I had trouble attempting to figure out what the first killing had to do with the script or where "247" came into this thing as we don't get to see any indication of heat. The film is slow developing and once things start to happen, it is still slow and must be filled in with outside events and flashbacks. The acting wasn't particularly bad, but the script was downright awful.
If you want to see a better film that has 247 degrees in the title, try "247 Degrees North." If you want to see a better film about people locked in a sauna, try "The Steam Experiment." Or if you want to see a better movie where people have sex to classical music: "A Clockwork Orange."
I should have turned it off after I saw the confusing opening, "based on true events" and "3 years later."
Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, no nudity.
The movie is surprisingly watchable for such a premise. It wasn't scary or anything, but as you get to know the characters more and more, and as their time runs out, the movie draws you in. Unfortunately, it takes far too long to get you drawn in. By the time you're fully invested in the characters and their fate, the movie is 95% done.
It's not easy to make any movie that's confined to such a small space. So that 247 did a reasonable job at it is commendable.
While 247 isn't the best movie in the world, if you've got nothing else, it's not the worst choice you could make.
