Movie Info

A corrupt British Prime Minister becomes the subject of an intense investigation after giving up the location of an SAS unit in Afghanistan in order to secure a highly-lucrative arms deal. In the wake of finalizing an $80 million weapons accord with a prominent Afghan Sheik, British Prime Minister John Hammond grows confident that his chances of being reelected are high. But when a group of British soldiers are implicated in the murder of the Sheik's nephew, the prime minister begins to fear that his political career could quickly unravel. Desperate, Prime Minister Hammond attempts to remain in the Sheik's good graces by revealing the location of a clandestine SAS unit in Afghanistan despite the fact that regiment had no involvement in the murder whatsoever. Two months after the attack all of the SAS soldiers are presumed dead, but Italian Special Forces reveal that the sole survivor, Captain Jill Mandelson, incredibly managed to elude capture. Now Captain Mandelson wants answers. With the help of her twin sister Kimberly and some powerful contacts in the French Secret Service, Captain Mandelson prepares to confront the most powerful people in Britain to uncover the truth and hold Prime Minister Hammond accountable for his crimes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Charging boldly into battle, 31 North 62 East manages to conquer its low-budget shortcomings, emerging bruised, battered but ultimately triumphant.

Little White Lies

Messy and curiously dated in tone. This fails to make you care about the convoluted plot, with ill-drawn characters.

Empire Magazine

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.

Full Review… | September 18, 2009

The storyline is hackneyed and nonsensical, as if Loraine had plucked clichés from episodes of The Professionals and strung them together.

Times (UK)

[The] fiendish scheme crumbles under an onslaught of machine-tooled plot twists and a barrage of expository dialogue.

Guardian

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.
