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

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

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

The rest of the movie was slow moving and boring.

Confusing .

waste of time & a rental .

But it's all contrived.

It's just a pointless movie.

Depressing and pointless remake.

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

Dreadful waste of time .

A waste of time .

The film eventually became totally unbelievable, slow and boring.

because we're just soooooo entertaining.

Unbearable.

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

What a waste of time and money.

total waste of time .

No real plot.

Boring.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

The pacing was way too slow and boring.

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.

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

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.

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"!

It's slow It doesn't make sense.

His character's wife is equally bland.

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.

Simple premise, dull and outlandish movie .

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

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

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

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

One of the worst movies ever .

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

Don't Waste Your Time!

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

Waste of 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.

Pretty slow moving movie with ideas dropped left and right .

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

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.

You've heard of a slow burn?

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

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

"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.

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

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

Save your money and time.

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

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

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

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.

DWTY (Dont Waste Your Time)

Boring, Dull Movie .

Sounds more exciting than it really is.

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.

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

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