Four friends head to Cambodia on a care-free vacation. Only three come back. The rest are very concerned about what happened to their friend, and they head back to find out the truth. But as they search through the clues, trying to piece together what happened, one secret after another is revealed telling a very, very different story of what happened there, and why, in this mystery thriller.

This indie film, is quite a suspenseful film. The locations in Cambodia are beautiful, although most of the film is done in Australia it seems. Joel Edgerton is a decent actor, but this isn’t the best script in the world. They tried real hard to build an action packed suspenseful story, but it fell kind of flat for me. Yeah, there are bad guys, and tons of secrets, twists and turns. But it isn’t enough to make me really into the story, and I just didn’t get invested in it very much. There was a lot of opportunity to build a good mystery here, but it came off much too bland and didn’t really connect. I wanted to get into this story, but I just couldn’t. For that reason, I can’t recommend it. I didn’t feel there was enough meat to make it worth the effort. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to a film for which you have high expectations, only to find yourself fidgeting half way through and wishing it would just end. Basically, there’s no moral here, and the ending is just not satisfying. Skip this one.
