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.

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.
In summary, I'd rate "Wilderness" a high 3 (38%), undoubtedly a poor movie on many levels, however the comedy value presented and its roguish charm may make it watchable for some.
The governor sends them to an uninhabited island to improve their relationships under the command of monitor Jed.
They meet another camp with female juveniles under the command of veteran soldier Louise and they camp in another area.
They are attacked by a pack of dogs and a mysterious man with a cross-bow, wearing camouflage, they join forces fighting to survive under the leadership of Callum, a new inmate....
For a horror film, released straight to DVD, which expresses on the cover how much gore is in the film and features a key character with body parts missing, its a pretty good, well made movie.
And that's thanks to the brilliant cast involved in the film. Pertwee and Reid are good, but its Kebbel and Wight who really shine, especially Wight, as you instantly despise his character, proving that he is a great actor.
The rest of the support is a little generic, you get your giant with the heart of gold, and the inclusion of another female camp is just there to upset the apple cart, as just a camp of angry boys would be a little bit boring.
The film almost plays like a Neil Marshall movie, and when we get the final revelation, it doesn't hit as hard as it would like to.
But other than that, its solid stuff, the second act is tense, and like the cover says, its gruesome, but not in your face like other gore movies released in 2006.
Cruelly overlooked on initial release, if you find this movie on TV, or streaming, watch it, especially if you like slasher movies of the eighties
all in all a good overall performace and an interesting take on young offenders life, i just hope i'm never sent to an island like that for commiting a crime!!!!
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.
