The River

The River

The River is a story of Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood), a TV personality who is famous for going on trips to wild places and filming the most spectacular wildlife video. Along with his wife, Tess (Leslie Hope), and son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), they have filmed and became one of the most popular shows in television. However, after Emmet goes missing deep in the Amazon Jungle, his family, friends and crew all journey out on a deadly mission to find him. Once there, they get a signal that a beacon is leading them to Emmet, who was thought to be dead for six months.

Once there, Emmet's former producer, Clark (Paul Blackthorne), films the mission in a documentary-style film. Lena (Eloise Mumford), Emilio (Daniel Zacapa) and Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann) join them in the flight to find Emmet. However, when they get to the beacon, supernatural phenomenons begin to happen and the crew begin the journey of not finding Emmett, but saving their own lives. Created by Michael R. Perry (Paranormal Activity) and Michael Green (Green Lantern), The River is a non-stop thriller shot in the style of a documentary that makes you believe that this is really happening.

What a waste of my time...Rating: 0 likes, 3 dislikes

What a waste of my time,poorly directed, even worse acting, and the whole "docu-reality" theme inspired by movies such as "blairewitich project" is a waste of its own.... Seriously do not waste your time with this one when there are by far better series out there, and if there are no series to your liking go out for a beer. Read more
