Meek's Cutoff

During the 1840s, six settlers and their guide are caught in a dangerous situation: They are lost, food and water are running out, and the surrounding desert threatens to claim them all. Meanwhile, their guide, Stephen Meek (Bruce Greenwood), refuses to acknowledge that they may be several weeks off-course. When a Native American (Rod Rondeaux) is captured, Emily Tetherow (Michelle Williams), one of the settlers, shields him from Meek's wrath, and he offers to lead the group to water in return.

When our technology overlords come to take away our movie theaters, "Meek's Cutoff" should be held up as Exhibit A by the defense.

Meek's Cutoff? Zzzzzzzz

This is a ridiculously slow movie, that never goes anywhere. Little dialogue, and what exists is poor. Especially that by the character Meeks! What kind of accent is that? This movie has no obvious point to make. The acting is forgetable, the direction non-existant, and the scenery and cinematography mundane. I know they are trying to make a point here, about the desolation and isolation of these "lost" settlers, but it is just BORING! And the ending gives you the impression that the filmakers just ran out of budget, or someone just pulled the plug, realizing this could go on forever!! Waste of money, time, and effort. better off spending a couple of hours at the laundromat watching the dryers.............
