We've Already Seen This Movie Many Times
on August 25, 2013
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.
