"Gold" film reminds people that sometimes, you need to satisfy with what you have got or you have. Being greedy that much can lead the end of your life. So, don't be that much greedy.

Back to the film, like the other people said, it's not that good but it's not that bad either. It's somewhere in between. I like the fact they want to show but they made the film a little dull, cold and slow. If it had some interesting things, it'd be better.

Right now, it's kind of enjoyable if you don't mind to watch a bit dull, cold and slow films. As for me, I felt like it's a little bit boring. But I watched the whole thing to know how it's ended.

Yet another survival and greed film. While Zac Efron is a good-looking guy. He just isn't at Tom Hanks or Leonardo DiCaprio acting caliber. I don't think he is ready to do a one man show like those two other Oscar winners. But if I could offer an award, it would be for the makeup and special effects people on the set. The SFX on his neck and face made him look like a better actor than he really is. Seriously, he doesn't have that many lines in this film anyway!

Anyway, the story is slow and the plot is very basic. It's about the dangers of sudden wealth and the predatory world around us. The wild dogs, to me, represent the world. Not to mention the other guy watching Zac become part of the menu for the dogs. The ghost that haunted him of the woman he killed made the film 's later half more interesting. During those scenes we have real dialog between Efron and the actress.

Gold is what I'd like to refer to as a psychological survival thriller. It incorporates tropes such as man v/s nature, man v/s man, and fictional v/s real. The major bummer here is the lack of a compelling arc. A couple of twists work, and the ending is possibly the best one given the proceedings, but the film doesn't give us any reasons to root for Zac Efron's character surviving the ordeal. The "no man's land" setup is pretty intriguing, but writer-director Anthony Hayes (who also plays a key role) decides to take the story through familiar routes. A human threat, a wild dog threat, and a storm threat were all obvious, and the film didn't do anything extraordinary with these essential ingredients. Efron puts in solid work, no doubt, and the film isn't a big fat bore like many folks have remarked. But if someone asks what I'd recommend instead, I'd say Mads Mikkelsen's Arctic.

When u alone, the helpless and desperate feeling is what I feel in this movie. Imagine this situation happens to you what can you do? Low budget film can be not bad. Don't be poor and greed will kill you.

Zac Efron is onscreen for the majority of this film and he is unrecognizable. The outback of Australia is the setting as the man with no name seeks refuge in an isolated outpost. With the discovery of gold along the way and the universal theme of the greed, the movie really worked for me. Although most of the audience will predict where it will go, the ride is worth the journey. Gold is one of my favorite movies of 2021.

Zac Efron hasn't been in much lately. I suspect he's probably just working on other projects and doing other things with his time. But 'Gold' was not the type of film I expected him to come back with. At least it looked kind of interesting so I was excited to check it out. Here are my thoughts.

The film starts out very slowly. There are only two characters and neither of them are very interesting. At this point I was worried this could be a very slow and dull film. Then it gets to the plot though and things start to become a little more interesting.

The thing that bugged me most about the film was that it made no sense. Efron's character stays to guard the gold, however no one has ever found it before now. So why are they worried someone will miraculously find it in the next 5 days in the absolute middle of nowhere? I had trouble getting past that plot-point.

A large portion of the movie is just Efron's character by himself trying to survive. For a film to get away with this you have to be impeccable, otherwise you will lose your audience fast. 'Castaway' was strong enough to pull it off (just) - and even then it took a volleyball to carry it through. 'Gold' isn't quite as strong. The middle of this film can get a little tedious.

The make-up used on Efron's face was very well done. It didn't seem particularly consistent (I could be wrong on that but it felt like every time we cut to a new scene he looked different to the last), but it did look very painful and quite realistic.

The ending of the film is a bit of fun. I like it when films aren't afraid to do something a bit different in terms of concluding their film.

This is a very somber film. There are exactly zero laughs attempted. It doesn't take away from the film, but it is worth noting. 'Gold' isn't a film I will watch again. It had its moments and was mildly enjoyable at times but probably not one I would go out of my way to recommend. 6/10.
