Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, directed by Mikael Salomon & Jake Newsome (2012), is an unnecessary modern remake of a mediocre film. It’s all a setup to explore a romance between an edgy teen boy and a studious popular girl who are both lost in different ways. There was no need to have it under the Blue Lagoon name as it could have been a standalone but maybe they couldn’t sell it without that attachment which seems ridiculous. The acting was ok. Not great. Not the worst. The story was horrible. Really bad. The world they were living in felt plastic and wrapped up. All in all, not worth the time to watch it.
