    I thought it was a really good ride, maybe some will think it slow but if your dialed In to what these guys are saying you'll see a real life story. Great job all around, writers, actors, and all who got this to the finished product.

    With all the independent films today, Scenic Route packs a refreshing dose of originality and superb acting. Making good use of the surroundings and situations, the film really pushes the bar of human thought and really examines how much one can take.

    Scenic route takes a few different routes itself. The film has comedy elements, drama and a survival plot to it and, while it is not a great film, it succeeds in all three of them pretty well.

    An awkward, long-winded mash-up of therapy session, horror movie and survival tale with pretensions of psychological depth.

    Sometimes indie pictures like this, with over-the-top acting and outrageous situations, are meant as a calling card for its creators - a chance to show their wares to others in the industry. So calling all producers, there is one tour-de-force performance in Scenic Route: the makeup team of Brian Kinney, Sara Robey and Maia Wagle. Admire their work, and bring earplugs.

    It's no "Taxi Driver" or even "Open Water," but Route has enough attractions to warrant the trip.
