“Gripping and mercifully short, it doesn’t quite achieve the status of cinematic gold. Perhaps it’s for the best, or Hayes may have fallen prey to his ambitions.”~Alex Saveliev, Film Threat

Aroview: Thriller set in a dystopian near-future where ex-teen heartthrob Zac Efron struggles to survive in an inhospitable Australian desert.

When he discovers an enormous gold nugget he agrees to stay with the treasure while his companion seeks out an excavator, but with limited food, water, and radio contact his physical and mental health begins to rapidly decline. With a sparse plot to match the setting, there's not much to this film except its effectively built tension and some light commentary about human greed and hubris, but Efron's performance is nothing if not committed.
