After they've given him a harpoon for his birthday, rich boy Richard (Christopher Gray) invites his girlfriend Sasha (Emily Tyra) and his best friend Jonah (Munro Chambers) onto his yacht for a spin - nothing big, just a day trip -, but the little cruise is under a bad star from the get-go, basically because Richard has long suspected Sasha to have an affair with Jonah, and now she admits to having had sex with Jonah once. This doesn't sit well with Richard, who has always had problems to control his temper, and he pretty much beats Jonah to a pulp before Jonah and Sasha can overcome him and throw him overboard in desparation. There's a problem though, Richard is the only one who has the keys to start the yacht, and he insists they throw everything that could be used as a weapon, including all glass bottles, into the Ocean before he returns again. In their desparation they do of course - but once Richard's back on board it turns out the yacht's engine won't start. Now this is bad news, because Richard didn't think it necessary to stock up on provisions or water for a day trip, and they've thrown everything that could prove useful overboard, and none of them has any particular survival skills. On the plus side, they agree on a truce to live through this, but that's not much good as help doesn't seem to be on the way. Worse yet, Jonah has developed gangrene from a harpoon wound inflicted during his struggle with Richard. Eventually, the three, totally dehydrated and starved, decide they have to kill one of them for the others to survive. But while they try to decide who, ugly stuff comes up between them that leaves nobody innocent ...

 

A very tight thriller of the confined space variety that seems to have it all, violence and madness, gruesomeness and mindgames, and even a bit of (rather dark) comedy, and the mix workd because the elements complement one another rather standing in each other's way thanks to a clever and cleverly structured script, helped by a solid directorial effort getting the most out of its limited sets, and a strong ensemble cast.

Well worth a look.
