For horror fans, this is one of the year’s best.
Cruise carries the film like the screen star he is, although it would have been great if he had been given more to chew on.
Despite the occasional absurdity, it hits the mark as a feel-good flick about girl love, loyalty and fierce friendship.
A sincere and uncompromising depiction of sexual repression, forbidden love and sacrifice.
Fun concept and some strong cinematography aside, the film is constantly hurt by the underdevelopment of character and plot.
Lumpen, Chthonic shapes clamber out the shadows, turning human beings into blobs of bloated, tentacled flesh.
Although it is entertaining, the action/comedy balance isn't quite calibrated correctly.
Despite the great acting, 'Faults' is undone by a number of plot holes and a denouement that feels underdeveloped.
It also has the longest single-take fight scene of its kind in history.
There was the potential for a more inventive adventure, but ultimately it plays it too safe to be anything special.
A questionable 'Cannibal Holocaust'-esque moment is but one of the elements holding this intriguing horror-thriller back.
