This harrowing drama is based on the true story of a South American rugby team whose plane crash-landed in the Andes in 1972, leaving the survivors the choice of starving to death or eating their dead to stay alive. Director Frank Marshall stages the mountaintop crash with a terrifying sequence of special effects and makes sure that the subsequent events are tastefully presented. He's well served by the convincing performances of a cast that includes Ethan Hawke and Vincent Spano. However, given the grim subject matter, you can't help but keep your emotional distance from the survivors' dreadful dilemma.
