Liz Dunn (Thora Birch) is desperately in love with Mike Steel (Desmond Harrington) and would do anything for him to notice her. Even if it is to dye her red hair blond like her friend, Frankie Smith (Keira Knightly) because she is popular and beautiful; but it doesn’t work. So, Liz’s best guy friend, tells her about an abandon bunker in the woods, where she can spend three days getting noticed by Mike. Liz, Frankie, Frankie’s date and Mike all go down to the bunker while the school is on a field trip. After a day of partying, Liz’s plan is not working and Mike wants to leave, but he can’t because they are locked in with no way out. Thirst, starvation, hallucination, desperation takes place as days roll by with no hope of leaving. Will they find a way out? Will they all die? Will Mike finally notice Liz?
This film was an okay to watch. I believe that the story took too long to explain itself. The film gives the audience one question, did Liz’s friend really lock them in there? The emotions from the characters were mediocre but could have been stronger considering the stuck-in-a-hole situation. I’m not saying that there should be more yelling and screaming, just a little more feeling to give me goose bumps. I didn’t care too much for the ending as it has been done way too many times in other films. All in all, I will not see this film again.
