I watched this movie yesterday. I thought it was a great story. I would have done a few things different. I know that I am no one to say that, but I would have had them struggle a little more for the effect of the audience. I would have given them more time to fall in love and more reasons to stay together.
I thought the crash was kind of sudden and that it would have been a better story if the pilot may have survived and caused them more problems and reasons to try and survive. I love the fact that they had to rely on each other to survive and make it out in the cold.
I loved that the dog survived and that Ben adopted him. That made it really nice at the end because all of them survived except the pilot. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet do a great job of their characters and creating the romantic drama that was all throughout the movie.
Overall I really like the movie and would recommend that you watch it. I would give it a chance to show you a good survival movie that could have used a little bit more drama, but over all deserves a 4 out of 5 stars. If you get the chance watch the movie and let me know what you think.
