But it's all contrived.

The movie was so boring, I couldn't even laugh at how bad it was.

"The Long Weekend," also known as "Nature's Grave," is a well made and gripping horror flick, especially because most of it is filmed in broad daylight.

waste of time & a rental .

There is some confusion, at least to me, of their nationality.

Sounds more exciting than it really is.

I watched this movie late one night when I couldn't find anything better and the thing that seems to stick out to me the most about it is, it's utterly confusing.

There are just some few suspenseful scenes, and I believe they could have built more with such subject.

Phil's Quick Capsule Review: An awesome idea (nature fights back) delivered with some nice visual flare but yet still manages to not fulfil it's potential, become just a bit dull and even at under 90 minutes feeling very long.

Pretty slow moving movie with ideas dropped left and right .

They:Ran over a kangaroo, Sprayed an ant's nest with poison Shot at some ducks, Shot a dugong, Smashed an eagle's egg, Ran over a crab, Shot at an owl, Left a dog to die a slow death in a car.

total waste of time .

Don't waste your time or money on a rental!

because we're just soooooo entertaining.

It's a low-budget low-profile movie that's just creepy and engaging, and has an eerie feel to it that is just to the point.

One of the worst movies ever .

The whole thing builds up really slow and makes you expect a giant surprise for the wait....

like i said earlier this is just a very irritating and annoying plot that drags on about the most mundane things and the action scenes are very horribly directed.

His performance of an outdoor wanna be macho with a sour wife is entertaining.

I found this movie extremely boring and a grand waste of time.

Things unfold so leisurely, everything that happens becomes so much more obvious and contrived.

Dreadful waste of time .

DWTY (Dont Waste Your Time)

It's slow It doesn't make sense.

This is not a terrible movie, worth watching at least once.

Depressing and pointless remake.

Save your money and time.

But in the interests of complete honesty, I must also admit that it is very, very, very slow and is centered entirely on two characters it is nearly impossible to give a damn about.

But this boring mess made those old films look like Oscar winners.

I would say more than a half of the film nothing happens other than their constant argument.

It's just a pointless movie.

Scenery is great, but it does get monotone after a while.

It's a complete waste of time, see something else....

I think it had a simple premise and it stuck strictly to the moral message it wanted to convey which made it quite bland and a little ridiculous at times.

don't waste your time - very annoying and boring story (DWYT) .

*** This review may contain spoilers ***This is clearly one of the worst movies I have seen (and I have seen a lot of movies).

A pointless, boring, stupid sequence of framesI guess the director is just being a wacko by keeping the audience as if "something meaningful" is soon going to happenwhat happens in the end is the sense of "deception"!

Environmentalist hippie propaganda mixed up with horror and a bad marriage, making for a very strange but easily predictable story.

The film eventually became totally unbelievable, slow and boring.

Unbearable.

However, as a solo film, I found this one to be for the most part enjoyable and I would recommend it to others.

The film never really does pick up, but there are some real intense scenes of interaction between our two heroes.

Than things starts happening you do not understand, but it gets boring half way through, nothing exciting happens and nothing is explained really.

This superfluous remake is a crime, theft from the Australian taxpayer who wastefully funds pointless films like this..and they should be investigated.

Boring, Dull Movie .

His character's wife is equally bland.

It's no masterpiece, whatever that may be, but it's engaging and very scary in a non-conventional way.

Waste of time.. .

I was not fan of the 1978 movies at all, I found it very boring and dull, I thought the remake would be better, I do think remake was little better then the old one.

No real plot.

You've heard of a slow burn?

Boring.

Simple premise, dull and outlandish movie .

What a waste of time and money.

A waste of time .

The pacing was way too slow and boring.

to me this is a real boring and also stupid movie leading absolutely nowhere.

The focus is on the couple and the slow build up of their problems with each other as well as their surrounding.

The scenery in this movie is ruined by the pointless script.

This is one of the most confusing and pointless movies I have ever seen.

Confusing .

The rest of the movie was slow moving and boring.

Don't Waste Your Time!

Right from the start the couple find an unexpected guest in their SUV their dog Cricket who sneaked her way on while they were packing their camping equipment.

The plot may seem a bit poor, but it does have its tense and intense moments.

It looks like the "suspense" scenes were hacked up in the editing room to try and make it more exciting, as even though this is a short film, it's still padded out with repetitive scenery shots.
