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.

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

I want to give this more than 1 star. I just don't think I can with the bad acting (particularly of the villain) and, even worse, the atrocious screenplay. An example: in the moments after 2 of the 3 barely escape repeated gunshots from 2 rifles and should be in shock otherwise from seeing the third hit with a bullet, the 2 are hiding out and soaking wet in the cold and scared for their lives. In other words, it's a moment that in reality would have them in pure survival (or shock) mode (with nothing else possibly on their mind but sadness for their fallen friend), and yet one of them thinks to bring up how she's sorry for sleeping with the other's fiance' and then they laugh about it in a 10 minute conversation in an 82 minute movie.

C'mon, that's ridiculous.

I cannot, in good conscience, give this more than 1 star. I find only 2 things positive to say about this movie: 1) the actresses are attractive (even though they have black eyes through 2/3 of the movie); and, 2) you only have to suffer through it for 82 minutes.

I just finished watching director Katie Aselton’s excellent women vs. men wilderness survival thriller Black Rock, and I was mightily impressed. There’s a lot that I could discuss about it; easiest would be to write a “you’ve come a long way, baby” meditation about how the role of women in horror movies has changed and is changing. Compared to a movie such as the original 1970s Toolbox Murders, it’s easy to see that today horror movies are much more about women fighting back against impossible odds, and that this makes for more compelling stories.

But it’s also an excellent example of the fact that horror movies can be far more character driven than they get credit for. The movie starts off with a well observed sketch of three childhood friends in their late 20s/early 30s, Sarah (Kate Bosworth), Lou (Lake Bell) and Abby (Aselton), whose relationship has been poisoned ever since Lou slept with Abby’s now ex-boyfriend. Sarah has lured them on a getaway vacation to Black Rock, and island where as ten-year-olds the three built a fort and buried a time capsule, in hopes that she might reconcile her two friends.

If I may coin a term, I would say that this is a movie that “starts quiet.” There’s no adrenaline rush, no kill scene to whet the appetite of the gorehounds in the audience. Rather, we get to spend the whole first act watching these characters in their natural state, facing the same sort of obstacles that most of us face in our everyday lives. If done badly, as in the recent indie effort Playing Hooky, this sort of opening proves very quickly that the creative team behind the movie really has nothing interesting to share about the characters or the world they inhabit.
