Commonplace and tardy story elevated by good performances
25 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Families, relatives and neighbours in small townships have always something to hide - even if it is nice and calm on the surface. Not very novel, and all this has been depicted "in bulk", thus twists and new angles would be appropriate to make a related film catchy, or not lopsided at least. Alas, I found no such event or trigger in Wreckers, most of occurrences were predictable, paving the way for summarising, yet trivial ending. Luckily the film lasted ca 1 hour 20 minutes only.

It is good that all leading performances are good: Claire Foy as Dawn, Benedict Cumberbatch as David, Shaun Evans as Nick; I began to focus on them soon, as the plot and directing did not captivate me. When the credits appeared, I felt glad that Cumberbatch has been noticed internationally with more versatile roles in more challenging works. Films like Wreckers are just films for art sake - or vice versa, too day-to-day, and for limited audience.
