Charging boldly into battle, 31 North 62 East manages to conquer its low-budget shortcomings, emerging bruised, battered but ultimately triumphant.

Messy and curiously dated in tone. This fails to make you care about the convoluted plot, with ill-drawn characters.

As a low-budget, quickly-made Brit flick, this is impressive for its ambition, but as a globe-spanning political thriller it lacks credibility and veers into the absurd.

September 18, 2009 Full Review Source: Film4

The storyline is hackneyed and nonsensical, as if Loraine had plucked clichés from episodes of The Professionals and strung them together.

[The] fiendish scheme crumbles under an onslaught of machine-tooled plot twists and a barrage of expository dialogue.

Writer-director Tristan Loraine has grand schemes in the pipeline, but this absurd stab at sub-Tom-Clancy conspiracy thrills won't help his credentials. When Craig Fairbrass is your closest thing to a badge of quality, be afraid.

A half-baked political thriller that reeks of a feature-length student YouTube clip.

Even John Rhys-Davies as the PM struggles to lend gravitas to the comically earnest dialogue and knee-jerk conspiracy theorising.

31 North 62 East suffers from a clunky title and a lack of credibility.

September 18, 2009 Full Review Source: Filmstar Magazine

The dialogue is so painfully naive that it seems to have been written by a 15-year-old who has read nothing but Alistair MacLean novels.

If you don't have the budget to make an action movie, don't try to make one.

A low-budget British "thriller" that is comfortably the worst film I can remember seeing: threadbare plot, clunking dialogue, brain-dead conspiracy theorising, and a gallery of embarrassing racial stereotypes. Avoid at all costs.

Crudely produced, the action scenes have no zip, the drama is underpowered and the performances have a bit of an am-dram feel.
