Well there were many things about this movie that bothered me. First off was the colored scheme. The sky was too blue and the dirt was too orange. This stylization almost made the scenery too fake. The second thing that really turned me off was the main character. I loath that type of person. Hyperactive, adrenaline junkies who love to party. I think these people are silly and not rational. And what makes things worse is that he doesn't change. He has no epiphany of how his lifestyle has caused great harm to him. Nextly we have the great ending with him getting rescued. Followed by the mistake of showing the real person. There was no need for that. I do believe the film missed out on a couple of good opportunities. I think they should have played up the lack of water and the psychosis. Him getting that sip of water at the end would have been much more satisfying if we would have believed that he needed the water. But instead we get two scenes of where his water runs out and where he drinks his pee. The talk show stuff was good at showing him slipping out of sanity, but there should have been more Scooby Doo moments. Overall I think this movie had great potential, but failed to deliver.

5/10

He DOES change. By the end of the film, he's admitted to himself that he got himself into the situation he's in. His hubris is the reason he's stuck and the film certainly suggests that the Aaron at the beginning and the end of the film are not the same person. I mean, he's obviously still an adrenaline-junkie, but I think he changed.
