I enjoyed the film myself. Half of it was exactly as cave diving is, half of it was completely preposterous.

Well, yeah,it's Hollywood! It's only supposed to be entertaining, not authentic.

Hi Barbara-

Thanks for the clarification. For some reason, I thought Sanctum was Cameron's film, and that Cameron underwrote another cave diving film that involved Andrew(he's listed as writer). There are too many cave/cave diving movies for me to keep track of. And I haven't seen any of them yet. Just to play devil's advocate, Cameron is listed as an executive producer on Sanctum- and executive producers can have some power over a film; look how Dune turned out ;-)

Of course, as a former competitive cyclist/fat old cyclist, I'm still annoyed by the truck drafting scene in Breaking Away- and I haven't seen it in decades. DIfficulty in suspending disbelief.

Maybe this weekend.
imbecile sheepherder.
