Open Water 2: Adrift
This film had to be the worst rendition of a perfectly good movie idea that I have ever seen. 6 friends go out on a yacht and all end up diving into the water. Unfortunately for them none of these geniuses bothered to check if the ladder was down. Now all trapped in the water with an unattended baby on board they struggle to get back on.
The first bad thing about this film is not a single character is likable enough to root for. They overlook countless opportunities to get back on the boat. The in fighting is pointless and one character's death is so abrupt and confusing that you wonder if the script writers lost interest at one point and just started to wing it.
The ending was flat out the most vague and stupid ending I have ever seen. This is a movie that you should avoid at all costs.
The film stars Eric Dane, Cameron Mathison, and Susan May Pratt, three decent actors who deserved so much better.
