A bruised and battered man awakens in the passenger seat of wrecked car at the base of a ravine. Gauging his surroundings, he notes the rear passenger and the driver both have been killed, his leg is seriously wounded, he has no food or cell phone reception, in addition to no recollection of who he is or what has happened. As he goes into survival mode, glimpses of who he was come into focus and he begins to wonder if it is even worth preserving his previous life. "Wrecked" is an immediately grabbing survival movie that gradually begins to drag and ultimately gets spoiled by unnecessary backstory and gimmicky hallucinations. The movie is held together by Adrien Brody's commanding lead performance.
