Amber is a young nurse, intent on getting home to her family after a long shift. Frankie is a dangerous psychopath on the run who will do anything to get out of the country and evade the authorities. When Frankie takes Amber hostage to aid his escape, it's the start of a long night...
In Buried, Ryan Reynolds spends the whole film underground in a coffin - child's play compared to what Anna Walton is put through here. She spends an entire night locked in a car with Danny Dyer - while he acts at her.
No one could call this a notable film, though there is some good location work and a performance from a bearded Dyer that may be a bit over the top but still makes its mark.
Thoughtfully chilling and impressively performed, Deviation is a well-sustained thriller.
Should be an edge-of-the-seat thrill ride, but amounts to an unintentionally funny B movie, with Dyer mugging to camera and Walton simpering next to him.
Bizarrely and excruciatingly acted by Dyer a lot of the time, but actually this film isn't as bad as all that - there is some interesting and atmospheric location work as the pair travel through the bleak urban wilderness.
Poor, but not totally without merit. Dyer's risible performance lingers for all the wrong reasons.
