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

Empire Magazine
September 18, 2009
Messy and curiously dated in tone. This fails to make you care about the convoluted plot, with ill-drawn characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 18, 2009
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.

Times (UK)

The storyline is hackneyed and nonsensical, as if Loraine had plucked clichés from episodes of The Professionals and strung them together.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
Xan Brooks
Guardian
September 18, 2009
[The] fiendish scheme crumbles under an onslaught of machine-tooled plot twists and a barrage of expository dialogue.

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.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies
September 18, 2009
A half-baked political thriller that reeks of a feature-length student YouTube clip.

Even John Rhys-Davies as the PM struggles to lend gravitas to the comically earnest dialogue and knee-jerk conspiracy theorising.

31 North 62 East suffers from a clunky title and a lack of credibility.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)
September 18, 2009
The dialogue is so painfully naive that it seems to have been written by a 15-year-old who has read nothing but Alistair MacLean novels.

If you don't have the budget to make an action movie, don't try to make one.

Robert Hanks
Independent (UK)
September 18, 2009
A low-budget British "thriller" that is comfortably the worst film I can remember seeing: threadbare plot, clunking dialogue, brain-dead conspiracy theorising, and a gallery of embarrassing racial stereotypes. Avoid at all costs.
September 18, 2009
Crudely produced, the action scenes have no zip, the drama is underpowered and the performances have a bit of an am-dram feel.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
