Gold Review: Zac Efron's Grim Parable of Greed

A desperate man in a hellish landscape fights to survive on a precarious quest for riches. Gold is a lean parable of the blinding nature of greed. Zac Efron gives a quiet and strikingly physical lead performance. Much of the film depicts his solitary struggle. Gold doesn't offer many surprises. The outcome is fairly predictable. But the protagonist's descent into savagery and terror is fascinating to see.
