Retreat DVD Review

Synopsis: Taking an isolated break on an uninhabited island, Martin (Cillian Murphy – The Dark Knight, 28 Days Later) and Kate (Thandie Newton – 2012, RocknRolla) are about to find that their island retreat is about to become a prison of unimaginable terror. When a blood soaked stranger (Jamie Bell) stumbles through their door claiming an apocalyptic virus is sweeping across Europe, their lives are turned upside down as they face what could be the end of everything they know. Using all means necessary, they must fight to escape the approaching threat. But escape is only the beginning of their terrifying fight for survival…

Review: This film, at face value, is a kidnapping drama.  Its also an apocalyptic end of the world virus drama.  Its also a marriage drama..and maybe even a military conspiracy drama?   There are many sides of this film and all are wildly entertaining!  The film stars a fantastic cast in Murphy and Newton..both seasoned actors.   The ending is what makes this film...we won't spoil it, but stick with it and you won't be disappointed!

The special features on this DVD include: Retreat: The Making Of and a Photo Gallery.

Interest Range: Drama
