April 9, 2012
Despite the many faults with the story (particularly the logic), there's good action and the film moves well once it gets started. Lots of running, climbing and dodging bullets. You could do worse.

It's simply too good to label it a misfire, but the film starts from the gate with such a confident, breathless level of suspense that it's a shame that it can't be maintained.

It's a deeply satisfying entertainment filled with energy and made with savvy and cinematic wit. And it marks Gilbey as a director to keep an eye on.

Part high-altitude adventure movie, part kidnapping caper film, "A Lonely Place to Die" is more exciting than smart, though that's not the worst thing you can say about a movie.

Probably one of the most engrossing films in a truly lackluster year...

... a small find ... Plucking ideas from 'Deliverance,' 'The Most Dangerous Game' and half a dozen North Face adventures -- the Gilbeys have fashioned one of the year's more unnerving thrillers

This is high-end cinema, let down only by the lack of any obvious subtext to earth all its on-the-edge thrills.
September 15, 2011
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.

Melissa George's Scottish accent is absolutely dreadful, but the smart script and wince-inducing action make it hard to notice or care all that much.

This is a tough, no-nonsense tale made all the more effective by its brutal landscapes.
September 8, 2011
This is a pretty neat thriller, and it could well take the Gilbey brothers to Hollywood.

Watch it for the well-shot action, rather than for the thin plot and dialogue which mainly consists of people stating the blindingly obvious.

"Because it's there" isn't going to cut it once you've experienced Julian Gilbey's mountainside ordeal.
September 7, 2011
The film's relentless momentum, coupled with Ali Asad's breathtaking location photography, distract us from the often two-dimensional supporting characters.

A worthy entry into the violent wilderness sub-genre.

An effective thriller that's canny enough to avoid genre cliches and boasts a gut-punch worth of edgy menace.
