Half a good filmBy Miserablegit (6 reviews) , 15 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]The film started well, with desolate scenery contributing to an air of menace. The set-up was interesting, and the film grew more promising until the appearance of the baddies. Unfortunately what had appeared to be a realistic and disturbing thriller then became increasingly ludicrous, culminating in nonsensical gun-play in a Scottish town casually modelled on The Wicker Man. Half a good film, but the wrong half.

GREAT FILMBy Jamdown (12 reviews) , 22 Aug 2012I really enjoyed this film great acting,writing,scenery and directing. The tension in the film was great the director actually wanted to involve the audience. A must see film. I also Watched the extras as well, it was a good insight into the making of the film and the directors commentary was good. The blue ray is the way to watch it as it makes the scenery look fantastic.
Really good - certainly worth a watch!By a customer , 10 Aug 2012Really enjoyed it - not what I was expecting. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Quite tense and scenery compounded the feeling of unease. Great British film. Very much worth a watch
Gripping stuffBy a customer , 08 Aug 2012Excellent little film, lovely scenery and some good believable characters. it's a massive shame that Melissa George now has an American accent, has her Aussie accent was awesome and far more natural. Good storyline with a slowly unwinding twist at the end.
Difficult TerrainBy manonfireuk (401 reviews) from Liverpool , 26 Jul 2012The stark, barren and dangerous setting for this film works really well, it's just the pace that is lacking a little. For a film set in the middle of nowhere where the characters not only have to fear the bad guys but also their surroundings you would expect a film filled with tension and nail biting scenes as characters scramble over difficult terrain to escape but it starts off quite slowly and only picks up a little once the bad guys make an appearance. Plus it doesn't help that some of the characters are annoying and cliched. It's an ok movie, could have been so much better.
TOP BRITISH ACTION OUTSIDE THE BOX SCRIPT!By theexile (9 reviews) from pontycymer , 26 Jul 2012This is a taut and beautifully filmed action thriller. I thought about a 4* rating, as I think some of the violence is gratuitous, but I was swayed by the excellent 'extras' that detail the making of this film and the tricks of the trade. The climbing sequences are amazing considering this is a low budget movie and, as an ex amatuer climber I would rate them as the best and most authentic I have seen, Plaudits to the Gilbey brothers, it would be really bad luck for them if Hollywood does not come knocking after this great action movie - the new Coen brothers?? The cast is excellent throughout with Melissa George outstanding in the female lead. Great film only my 2nd 5* in a year the other - another chase movie set in the Highlands - the brilliant CENTURION!
