Editorial Reviews

Three young women - Sarah (Kate Bosworth), Abby (Katie Aselton) and Lou (Lake Bell) - get together for a private campout at one of the iconic settings of their childhood, an empty island off the coast of Maine, to renew their bond of sisterhood. They quickly learn, though, that the island is anything but empty, when they encounter three men, who have come to the island to hunt. A misunderstanding quickly turns to tragedy, and the three women soon find themselves the targets of the hunt. What started as a simple playdate to recall old times is now a race for survival.

2.0 out of 5 stars We've Already Seen This Movie Many Times August 25, 2013
Format:DVD
Three attractive young women go camping on a heavily forested island, where they find themselves playing cat and mouse with some psychos.

BLACK ROCK is promising at first due to its immediately real acting and cinematography. Though the constant repetition of "f***ing" in about 75% of the sentences spoken here gets a bit tiresome after a while, the script is also very believable. These stronger elements, however, only serve to exacerbate the totally formulaic, predictable, and lackluster plot. I kept hoping for some sort of surprise or turnabout, but BLACK ROCK pretty much developed and ended exactly the way I thought it would. More development of character and settings would also have been helpful: If we could know the girls, guys, and the island itself a little bit better, BLACK ROCK might have been at least an average film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe even a little better than I expected July 8, 2013
By Brian
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I see this film getting a lot of bad reviews and I'm not really understanding why. The three leads are likable enough where I would have watched a non-thriller about them reuniting during a vacation and settling their issues. However, once the plot kicked in the film got even better. It's not too often you get a film like this where you genuinely care enough about each character to not want to see anything happen to them, and that's what made this film suspenseful. The low budget definitely helped here too, because the fight scenes come off much more brutal and realistic, I was reminded of some of the grittiest survival thrillers of the 70's during the film's conclusion. If it wasn't for the three ladies (and I think Katie Aselton directing definitely helped) and their relationships, perhaps I wouldn't have cared for this movie so much. But they were definitely enough to keep my eyes glued to the screen from beginning to end and I felt satisfied when the film ended.

"What happened was an accident. Abby is sorry." Three friends set out for a getaway weekend on an island they used to frequent when they were younger. While they are talking they are surprised when three men who have been hunting show up at their camp site. The two groups begin talking and drinking. When a fatal accident happens the girls relaxing weekend turns into a fight for survival. There are movies that are made that you have to really pay attention to and make you think. While this is very entertaining this is not one of those kind of movies. The movie is really nothing that deep but I did enjoy it. Be prepared for it though, some parts are very gory and a little hard to watch. On the other hand this is a "girl power" type movie so it does have that going for it. If you like movies like the Perfect Getaway then you will like this one as well. It was entertaining and a good watch but nothing that will keep you talking or thinking. Overall, fun and exciting but nothing that original. I liked it though. I give it a B

3.0 out of 5 stars Katie Aselton--FOREVER UNCLEAN! August 24, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Well, I rarely see movies that deserve that 3 Stars "It's Okay" rating so perfectly. The film is uneven, pretty good in a few areas and pretty lacking in others. First, I have to admit that I a love Duplass and Aselton. So I will probably check out anything they do. But mediocre is mediocre.

The acting is uneven: the girls can act. The soldiers? Not so much. To be fair, I did not believe Aselton's crying. But everywhere else she is a pro.

The action is uneven: some of it looked like pulled-punches kind of stuff. And the blood is very fake. Like old melted jelly beans and tomato sauce puree with some ketchup and a melted blow pop thrown in for good measure. They needed the advice of a few cops, MMA fighters, or a fight choreographer.

The plot is uneven. It starts out like a chick flick--a bit amusing, a bit annoying, but with some potential interpersonal conflicts raging. Then the girls make some bad decisions that are not really justified. Aselton's character goes off the wall, but we don't really know why. The soldiers are meat-head pieces of trash who did something naughty during the war, but we never know exactly what and why.

Then, toss one suddenly slutty girl into the woods with a meat-head, play the date rape challenge game, and mix thoroughly. The conflict begins. Men versus women on an island so far away from everybody that no one hears gun shots, but it only takes a few minutes to get there by some dingy old boat--and people fish everywhere nearby.

To the point, the boys do things that make no sense. The girls do things that make no sense. Then everybody gets into a deep woods chase and kill. The ones who get off the island look like the next people cast for Walking Dead.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 July 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Black Rock is one of those rare films that was written by, directed by, and starring the same person. Back in the early days of film, this was common, but today it's rare. While I admire all the work a single person puts into such an effort, the truth is that most of these films turn out to be a little strange, Black Rock is no exception. Three life long best friends decide to reconnect on a weekend retreat, to a small secluded island, where they had a lot of childhood memories. Once there, they run into a pack of hunters. Testosterone and alcohol mix, leading to a vicious assault, leaving one group a member short, and the other group on the run. Katie Aselton is the Writer, Director, & star of this film and while I admire what she put into it, the truth is that it was very predictable and didn't make a whole lot of sense. First of all, these three women, as children were allowed to play on a secluded island in the middle of nowhere, without supervision? It also doesn't make sense that the hunters would be there, when there was seemingly no wildlife, and of course there had to be exactly three of them. Finally, why did three women, spending a weekend alone on a secluded island, bring enough alcohol to fuel a Todd Phillips movie? The whole thing was just a little too weird to be believable, and when you add how predictable this film was, it's just a recipe for disaster. The one thing I liked was the performance of Jay Paulson. He's usually a guy who gets bit parts and guest appearances here and there, but he was very solid and the most believable of the six characters. Aside from that this is a slow, painfully predictable, mess of a film, that really doesn't have a whole lot going for it.
