Comments: No, no ,no! This is way too long and has very little to say which hasn't already been said much, much better! It's basically an ordinary two part TV movie all at once. If those who think this was an exciting film because of the 'hunting humans' element, then I recommend Mel Gibson's 'Apocalypto' which is pretty much the best 'chase/hunting/human' film ever made. There are real comparisons to be made with Apocalypto. However this film lacks any believable plot and genuine nail biting tension, except for the poison fog sequence. There's something 'plastic' about everything in the film, especially the's all so forgettable, where Apocalypto is a film you're not likely to ever forget. This film is certainly not worth the accolades given it and the 7.8 here at, which is the same as Gibson's movie, which was trashed by the critics for reasons that never applied! Clearly one work is truly outstanding in every respect while the other is a bit of a fraud in every respect and not worth the time!
