Didn’t expect much from Black Rock, but was still left a little disappointed. A run-of-the-mill stranded on an island movie with multiple short-cutted relationship tropes.
- With Mark Duplass producing and writing, as well as Katie Aselton directing, writing and staring…this has to be a relationship and partnership developed through The League. Go watch The League instead.
- Everything about this movie was predictable. Even the death of Sarah (Kate Bosworth) was obviously foreshadowed.
- This is meant to be a female empowerment movie, but it misses the mark in terms of fitting that genre. It is not as subtle or profound as A Vigilante (2018), Wild (2014) or even Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).
STANKO RATING: D (1.5/5 Stars)
