The Descent

So, I knew this going in:

  • A Neil Dog Soldiers Marshall film
  • Leads are all women

and that's really all you need to know about this film.

I didn't feel like I had a handle on the characters' names, let alone their personalities, before everything descended (ahem) into chaos - too much rowdy talking over each other. Mind you, me playing the guitar at the same time probably didn't help.

The usual "I threw the map away" dumber-than-a-dead-badger moment, and then mayhem. Once the monster bit kicks off, the lighting changes - there's a lot less darkness, and far more cave areas that are obviously lit by studio lighting. Oh, well. Ending wasn't too bad.

The scariest moment was early on, when one character just gets stuck trying to get through a small passage. Forget monsters: being unable to move or turn around, two miles underground - now that is scary.
