Violent British horror. A group of young offenders are given the chance to rehabilitate themselves and learn self-sufficiency skills when they are sent off to a boot camp on a remote island. What they discover is a forbidding landscape inhabited by a vicious psychopath, who starts hunting them and picking them off using an array of horrific traps. Against the odds and the elements, the young prisoners have to learn to work together in order to survive.

What we have is a group of young offenders let out for a boot camp style holiday on a remote Island. What follows is a `Deliverance' style hunt film, with some surprisingly good sequences in it for what one presumes is a low-budget British flick.
Some reviewers say too much was revealed early on - I don't think so - and I actually liked the fact that we're let in on `what's what', as this takes the film away from being a mediocre horror, and took it into a new and terrifying territory - a whole other genre of film: The Hunt.
In my opinion this worked much better and made the film feel much more original. Plus being a fan of all things military, for me it made it much more believable and scary, too. Monsters and ghost I don't believe in - but vengeful, highly trained killers... that's a possibilty.
There were some great action sequences and stunts, and on the whole the acting was pretty good. One or two of the youngsters failed to perform - but this is understandable as they were young, and a lot was being asked of them. All in all though, I found 'Wilderness' to be a pleasant surprise... if 'pleasant' is the right word to use.
The cover advises you: don't go down to the woods today.... I'd agree. I'd say: go down to the shops and pick up a copy of this. 8/10

At this point, the story shifts focus - as the youths seek to survive. Yet no matter what they do, their numbers dwindle as their enemy stalks them - killing them one by one. In this wilderness setting, it takes both intelligence and a willingness to fight to stay alive. And so the film culminates in a final battle between the few remaining youths and their attacker.
While this movie describes itself as a 'horror', it's not (unless the term simply describes horrible occurrences). It's more of a thriller, centered on survival. It's a cross between "First Blood" and "Lord of the Flies". And, although it's a low-budget movie, it presents an intriguing story with great acting. If this is the sort of film you enjoy, then I highly recommend it.
Although one can spot the likely survivors, the characters are well-played with no maudlin death-bed conversions; the chief bully dying as he lived. The film has a DOG SOLDIERS feel and not just because it has Sean Pertwee.
A guilty pleasure.
They meet some females who are basically there for the same reason and the film revolves around an individual with an array of weapons and dogs hunting them down. Strangely I thought, the 'maniac' and his motive are revealed very early on, soon after the first killing which does take some of the suspense and guesswork out of it especially as there were another couple of strands which could have been used to keep the viewer guessing. Very watchable for what it is, has been compared to scum, dog soldiers and Lord of the flies but is not quite as good as any of those.
I would say be wary of another review that reveals the protaganist but it is revealed so prematurely anyway it probably wouldn't matter too much if you found out beforehand. All in all good effects, nothing wrong with the story and acting fine, worth a watch.
