Though I appreciate Buxton's rookie attempt to present an alternative look at teen rage, I can't help seeing that this overreaching film goes nowhere with only clichés to guide it.

Credit to Buxton here for extracting conviction from such young actors. The performances aren't wholly redemptive, but they are compelling.

...the film ultimately feels much, much longer than its 103 minutes.

This well-paced chase thriller stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as sibling crooks on the run from a botched casino heist.

The clock starts to drag, and some energy is lost. But the movie displays a lot of promise both in front of and behind the lens.

Told with a rare mix of humanity and procedural clarity that recalls, nay, honours the late, great Alan Clarke.
