Paul (Stephen Dorff) is a research scientist. He’s about to leave on a trip to Africa, but his ex-wife calls to let him know his teenage daughter has been acting out, and needs some attention from her father. But Paul is taking his new girlfriend along to make it a vacation for her. So the daughter comes along, but their relationship is very strained. But when Paul is suddenly killed, the only means of survival for the two of them is to work together, and try to walk out of the African desert together.

Many people did not like this film very much. I’m not sure why, because for me it was a suspenseful survival thriller. The thought of being stranded in the desert with the intense heat, wild animals and lack of water and supplies is horrifying. The acting is very good, and the locations are stunningly barren. With a great deal of suspense and danger keeping us on the edge of our seat, this was an exciting film to watch. It does start out slowly, and it appears to be an “absent father, bratty kid” melodrama, but it quickly gets going and turns into an exciting and suspenseful adventure. After the first 30 minutes or so, the movie moves along quickly. The characters are believable, and the story is well told. The bad guys are really bad. I enjoyed this a good deal and recommend it as a nice action adventure.
