There was nothing lower than 1 star, that's what this film got. A boring story about a couple on an uninhabited island, who discover that the island is not deserted. It sounds promising on paper, but the reality is sorely disappointing. It starts off slowly, does not build up or speed up, then finally ends in a complete anti-climax - the film being over is the only piece of enjoyment I could derive from the experience of enduring this movie. If you need a film to sleep through, or are looking for an actionless way to numb your brain, then this is the film for you. A must to avoid for cinema connoisseurs and those who require any form of mental stimulation.

The Synopsis for Uninhabited (2010) 720p
Harry and Beth wanted a different kind of holiday. So they chartered a boat to drop them off on a remote coral island on the Great Barrier Reef. Paradise? The island was idyllic, surrounded by a wide reef, covered in palms and full of birds and other wildlife. It was small and totally deserted. Or was it? After snorkelling, making out and having fun, the young lovers soon come to believe that there is someone else on the island. Things go missing from their camp and then they discover someone else's footprints in the sand. At first amused, this becomes disturbing as they realize the island has a ghost! From paradise, the holiday quickly turns into a nightmare of arguments and mistrust... Inspired by actual events.

I want my 90 mins backReviewed bykerryan-dawsonVote: 7/10
I was shaken up by Uninhabited when I saw it as part of the melbourne film festival. It was creepy but very beautiful, and it really got under my skin.
My partner and I talked about it a lot after the screening. He didn't like it as much as me, he was expecting another Saw I think, but to me it's more like the Harrison Ford movie What Lies Beneath, or even Picnic at Hanging Rock. To me it was a relief not to see bodies carved up and splattered everywhere.
There are really only two main actors in the film, and they were good. They kept me guessing the whole time and they were very watchable.
I hope it gets out to a wider audience because it offers an alternative to the usual blood and guts fare that you see so often and I look forward to seeing it again because there's a lot to think about in this creepy little gem.
Don't you just love it when the credits open with inspired by actual events in an attempt to hook you in? A young couple decides to spend their holidays off the north coast of Australia, dropped off by a charter boat on one of the many tiny islands in the Great Barrier Reef. Thinking that they have the island all to themselves, they discover that it might not be the case and an empty, shuddersome looking shack next to a grave in the middle of the island might hold the answers to what they're experiencing. Forget about the deadly wildlife you might encounter, as someone or something is obviously trying to unsettle them.
While competently made it follows a standard pattern. Think along the lines of a haunted house formula, but the house is actually a tropical island. Its minimal style engineers the natural beauty of the surroundings to lure you into a false sense of security, as the two characters fool around, relax and explore the open spaces. A breathtaking, tranquil backdrop is strikingly photographed with visual contrast and abstract shots of a crystal blue coral reef, golden sands, richly green vegetation and the ever reaching skyline. But their intrusion stirs up a horrific past that won't rest, where the beauty masks something cancerous and vengeful. Their belongings are messed about, shadowy figure appears, footprints show up in the sand and voices are heard on the wind.
Suspense slowly materializes from its slight premise, questions begin to add up and foolish character decisions become the norm as a progressive plot tool. The couple eventually clash over what they believe they're facing and emotional remoteness sets in. There are moments when it makes your hairs stand up on the back of your neck, using subdued thrills with a hauntingly indigenous sounding score, but at the same time it's so familiar in execution it doesn't surprise. I really didn't know what to make of the ending and final shot though, felt overly redundant and before that occurs there's a tragically ironic twist of fate that worked much better. Palatable performances from the two leads Geraldine Hakewill and Bob Baines made their buoyant chemistry believable that I actually felt for them.
"UNINHABITED" had its flaws, not whole a lot happens and it's beyond routine, but I'm a sucker for anything on a tropical island.
