Synopsis
Billionaire Charles Morse (Anthony Hopkins) accompanies his much-younger wife Mickey (Elle Macpherson) and a fashion photography team headed by Bob Green (Alec Baldwin) to a remote lodge in Alaska. Charles is a quiet, introspective man, fond of accumulating trivia and other facts in his encyclopedic mind; he is also troubled with the idea that Bob and Mickey may be lovers. Even though he suspects the younger man plans to kill him, Charles goes with Bob and his assistant Stephen (Harold Perrineau) on an airplane trip to find a photogenic friend (Gordon Tootoosis) of the lodge owner (L.Q. Jones), but the plane crashes in a lake, killing the pilot. The crash is miles from their planned path, so they can't expect to be spotted by an aerial search; there's only one chance: they have to walk to a more likely spot.Though Robert and Stephan are more physically fit, Charles' calm wit and ingenuity proves the key to their survival, especially after a ferocious bear brutally kills Stephen. Robert and Charles' odyssey becomes more urgent when they discover that the bear is now stalking them. ~ Bill Warren, All Movie Guide

Great movie; not anamorphic widescreen by dsroberti July 8, 2006 - 1:33 PM PDT

This is a great movie, and the other review say enough. If you like David Mamet, this one won't disappoint.

A note for widescreen/HD tv owners. This movie is not enhanaced for widescreen TVs, so it will look a little out of proportion and won't take advantage of your TVs real estate. This is a shame, because the movie has lots of great photography.

THIS IS DEFINATLEY ONE TO RENT. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST SURVIVAL STORY OUT THERE. THIS IS PRETTY MUCH A SIMPLE DISASTER SET UP WITH THE PLANE FLIGHT. BUT THE MEANING IS MORE THAN ANY OTHER I HAVE SEEN!

This super smart thriller by lit-which David Mamet, stars Hopkins as the cagey rich older statesment vs. all brawn-Baldwin, as they fight for the girl. Which girl? Elle, of course, who's looking good, and thankfully, not saying too much.
