I never expect much from a small-studio or low-budget thriller because they're usually disappointing. But "A Lonely Place to Die" is a cut above them, with only minor logic plot points getting in the way.
A solid effort that should entertain viewers, In A Lonely Place To Die owes more to the character-driven suspense of The River Wild than the overblown action of Cliffhanger, and it's great to see a British attempt at the genre.
Amped-up camera work - including vertigo inducing POV shots - are thrown in to create the illusion of a film that is much more kinetic and fast-paced than it really is, but it counts for zip when the rest of the film is so inert.
