Thoughts on Camino
Thoughts – Camino is a thriller that will see how a photojournalist will need to use her own survivalist skills to make it out of the latest situation in the Colombian jungle, after witnessing something horrific. This is a nice survivor thriller that will give us everything we need, as we dive into seeing how the leader of this group shows a darker side, which shows just how convincing he is in controlling the group to believing anything he says. The environment will show the dangers that Avery must deal with and show just how much photojournalist would risk getting the big story. Everything comes of tidy, without feeling as intense as it could, leaving us wanting to see more before it unfolds in the manner you would expect in any thriller.
Final Thoughts – Camino is a by the book thriller offer little fresh without being on the duller side.
