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.
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.
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.
