One of my all time favorites.
Memorable, crazy movie
Good story, Not enough for a whole film
Fresh and Exciting
I made it about 30minutes into this movie before I stopped watching. The movie started jumping from past to present to past to present... I guess they did this to try and make it more interesting but it didn't work for me. I just found it annoying. I really couldn't care about the characters and weather or not they lived or died. Just not my type of movie. Definitely NOT an action or adventure movie.

1.Genre- Action, Adventure, Drama 2. Rating- 6/103. One liner- Reminds me how life of Pi was so amazingly conceptualized4. Plot summary- Story is about Richard and Tami who were stuck in a hurricane on their way to the American coastline, how they were wrecked completely by the disaster leading to Tami finding her way out on the basis of her hallucinations.5. Events- I think since the movie is based on a true story, it is quite commendable to how she survived around 40 days adrift. The movie projection of the storyline was good but should be more endearing for the audiences to connect on different levels. Woodley did a great job of escalating the proficiency of the character to certain level in the movie. 6. Film making- I think the movie was visually sound and quite well on cinematic effects, but that simply reminds me of award winning Life of Pi.7. Potential viewers- I think to all those people who love real life stories or true experiences connotation in a cinematic experience.8. Verdict- I think it can be taken as light watch movie, no extreme highs and lows that can become the climax of the movie not to forget the past and present going hand in hand in the movie for you to discover!!
Sometimes it seems to me it is a burden if you know tons of very good to outstanding movies - I remember a superb one called All Is Lost from 2013 with the titan Robert Redford playing. Adrift is a fine play about a man fighting for survival against all odds on the ocean and got almost no spoken word, only the great Redford fighting against the currents and winds.Adrift is clearly no real survival movie nor plays in the same league as Adrift - too much time gets lost around the mumbo jumbo of love/romance and with the cheap technique called "flashback", the director/writers drown any suspense that may dare to lurk around the corner (one of the dangers of hopping around in the timeline if not well done and that's how it felt to me regarding Adrift).
Many times "time-hopping" is just an easy way to fill screen-time if you got not really much to tell about the main theme and you have to cover screen-time. In All Is Lost we did not know much about the man fighting for his life but we learned a lot about him while he was fighting for his life, compared the characters of Adrift are simple card boards (typical millennials somehow lost in the sea).To sum it up: all in all Adrift is a movie for a young audience who like those actors (who did an okay job) and want the romance thing and some nice pics, and yes, some survival drama on a boat. Note: even alone on the boat the girl had nonstop to talk and scream and jumping around instead of sparing her energy for the real work - Redford did all his work with sparse mimic and gestures - Woodley behaved sometimes like a bunny on speed. Well, maybe she got some "stuff" with her and used it ;)Verdict: okay. But don't get confused by those inflationary 10 rate reviews made by bots, hired guns, fanboys or whatever...
"Adrift" is one of these movies which makes you on the edge of your seat.The sequence of the scenes will literally cruise your heart from romance to rapidlly increasing suspense and then put you face to face with the unusual mother nature rough rage... just to find yourself - at the end - rescued by the brilliant acting & performance of (Shailene Woodley).thank you (Baltasar Kormákur) i really appreciated !
