World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
Here's a pretentious, cliché-ridden, London-set thriller notable for absolutely nothing.
| Original Score: 1/5
Director Imran Naqvi evokes the requisite air of dread but is let down by an ending that neither surprises nor satisfies.
| Original Score: 2/5
Predictable British thriller with a lacklustre script, poor direction and atrocious performances, though it does at least deserve points for its deserted London scenes.
It's all so dreary you'll wonder why they bothered.
All this could have made an interesting film, but the dialogue and direction are just so agonisingly laboured.
As low on scares as it is on sense, good acting, musical numbers or other recognisable merits.
Despite some effective horror beats, the payoff doesn't live up to the highly promising premise.
Clunky exposition and some decidedly wonky acting (Hassan's the best thing about it) slowly bleed the lifeblood out of a leaky plot.
