In Chile, an American tourist’s vacation goes from good to great when he meets some beautiful women travellers. But when an earthquake ravages the underground nightclub they’re in, a fun night quickly turns to terror.

While not directed by Roth, the film is upheld by an engaging story which he both wrote and is the leading man. I am not sure why there are so many negative reviews... we have to keep in mind that, while it's a disaster film, it handles the panic of the situation in a very realistic, thought-out way. I liked the suspense that unraveled at every corner. And just when I thought it wouldn't, the tsunami finally came.
2 - A friend of mine told me to watch this because it was "hilariously bad". It was. I award this film one star for giving me the privilege of seeing Eli "Everything I Touch Turns to Shit" Roth go out in a blaze of CGI fire. Selena Gomez can now rest assured in the knowledge that fucking Justin Bieber was only the second-most degrading thing she ever did in her career.
As patròn here, Roth has never been more comfy with his inner nerd - Jesse Eisenberg could take serious lessons from the humility of Roth's cheesy, cock-blocked tourist. This film is an effective nailbiter, and it confirms the two great postulates of Roth's oeuvre: traveling anywhere is just plain bad, and cellphones are an integral part of modern selfhood.
Una mala broma. Su mayor problema es que siente estar siendo arriesgada todo el tiempo cuando lamentablemente es todo lo contrario. Predecible, absurda, estúpida y el segundo fracaso en un mes (junto a Hemlock Grove) con el nombre de 'Eli Roth' como productor y escritor.
Alguien digale a Eli Roth que el ser cruel con sus personajes no significa hacer algo novedoso, menos cuando lo hace con personajes tan vacios.
