Movie Info

Ad-exec Murray Roberts (David Hewlett) is in for a nasty shock during his walk from work -- he's mugged by a street gang. Afraid for his life, Roberts scales a tree and vows to stay there until the danger is gone. Unfortunately for him, the unsavory Shark (Cle Bennett) is equally determined to wait for Murray to come down and finish the robbing as he had intended, and an all-night standoff quickly ensues. Get Down premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Treed Murray (Get Down)


Christ not another film about a yuppie guy trapped up in a tree by a group of young hoodloms...yawn.

Indeed friends-all of you who have declared to not be interested in this film (95% of my friends list)-I just watched it for the 2nd time. It's a good movie with some great dialogue and pretty good acting by the guy in the tree. Forgive me-David Hewlett is the treed guy's name.

ANYWAY this is an interesting and thought provoking film-that deals with issues of survival/good vs evil/human indifference and cruelty. There are some terrific mindgames/manipulations as Murray tries to get down from the tree without being murdered by the aforementioned young hoodloms.

Give it a chance-it's Canadian eh!!

As so often happens with Canadian movies it is a metaphor social commentary drama, where a yuppie ad executive is treed by a gang of muggers and a battle of wits ensues.
Interesting but doesn't really go anywhere.

I rented this movie because one of my favorite actors, David Hewlett, played in it. I ended up buying it online that night because it was shockingly good! This movie is simply classic acting. No special effects, nothing blowing up; if that is all you want in a movie then look elsewhere. This movie is about the characters interacting with each other and a truly unique view of society and the general assumptions we all tend to make about each other. You have to give this movie a chance, you will not regret it. :)
