A biologist's husband disappears. She puts her name forward for an expedition into an environmental disaster zone, but does not find what she's expecting. The expedition team is made up of the biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, a surveyor, and a linguist.
The movie tries to be brilliant but it's a mess. Tonally, it doesn't know what it wants to be. Suspense? Horror? Sci-Fi? Action? It does a terrible job of blending all of these. By the end, I was left wondering, "What was the point?"
The protagonist's journey is muddled by the end the story limps to the finish line. The writer/director doesn't seem to know where the story is going,halfway through.
Interviews with the cast reveal that the story and tone changed throughout filming. Also, other's who have read the books have said that he drastically departs from the book, changing the ending completely - never a good sign.
