The Ruins

 6/10

Bubba8193: Based on the novel by Scott Smith, THE RUINS follows two couples on vacation in Mexico. They make friends with a fellow Mexican and later learn his brother has gone missing by some ancient ruins. They all decide it'd be fun to go and help look for him. When they arrive, the Indians do not allow then to leave the ruins because an evil lurks there. I won't mention who or what the killer is. Let's just say it's something very original and different. Which I thought was a good a thing because lately we haven't had a horror film that isn't a remake of some sort.

"The Ruins" is a poor adaptation of the novel. In the film, certain things happen to certain characters just because of the fact that the audience would rather see that person in distress rather then the other. So while the events in the film and similar to those in the book, the person that faces these events is not the same. This doesn't necessarily ruin the film.

The characters aren't realistic enough throughout the entire film. They don't connect together. Another thing that some people may like, while others may not, is that the terror begins within the first 20 minutes of the film. The film lacked in the shocks and thrills. The few shocks and thrills are caused by anything other then the killer. But the film sure doesn't lack on the gore aspect. The audience will actually view an amputee procedure.

The ending is a very typical Hollywood Ending, while in the book it had a better, realistic ending. So while this film lacks what other films have, it still has what other films lack. This is the kind of film that should be rented on DVD. Oh, and this film is NOT for the squeamish. Trust Me.
