Not much sense to this suspense thriller.

Gorgeous scenery, but the story never truly gets going.

This is a pretty good flick. A thrilling descent from white-capped heavenly mountains to fiery, dark, and hellish streets. Pulling a girl from a hole in the forest mid-way between mountain and street is a workable plot, and the movie carries it consistently and without boredom as the characters attempt to protect the girl once they find her. This isn't entirely original, but the performances are fair and involved, tensions are high, the environment is thematically immersive, and the pacing is consistent.

idk why but this was really emotional??? like the actual action part wasn't that interesting to me, but i was vehemently rooting for all the good people the whole time. plus most of the acting was really good, honestly.

A cut above most low budget movies. A Lonely Place to Die starts mellow and ends in a nail bitting fashion. It will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat.

Ambitious wilderness set thriller with some nice touches and great scenery but the characters are never fleshed out enough to make you really care...

started out really good but then ended with too many loose ends.

I liked it! The different groups of killers and the right maybe the girl was in on it in the first half of the movie caught my interest. Plus, I love Scottish accent!

There was a cool start to the movie but it went downhill quickly. Plot holes galore. Unanswered questions. No real resolution. At times it felt like they were filling time with unnecessarily long scenes. If they would've kept to story in the mountains, maybe it could've been saved but it became very generic over the last act. How did the villains go from being expert marksmen in one scene to stormtroopers the next back to snipers at the end? Watch the beginning and find something else after an hour.

It has a promising beginning and feels well made but all tension deflates after things start going wrong with an invasive, heavy handed score and far too much screen time dedicated to the villains and the nitty gritty details of their evil plot.

Surprisingly good movie with a satisfying ending. I am very impressed at the filming of this entire movie. The high elevation of crazy mountain climbing definitely added to the suspense. I think Rob's death is the most haunting and fascinating for my morbid mind but Jenny's death is very very pathetic. Overall a great film!

This actually started out very well. But when the bad guys came into the film, it derailed quick. I found myself laughing at their absurdity.

By the numbers thriller that isn't quite at the level of movies like Cliffhanger and Ransom. There are some beautiful shots, but the movie is overall forgettable.

Wasn't what I was expecting it to be about at all. Storyline wasn't thoroughly explained though and I did have to wikapedia what was going on. But overall a good film, with good twists and turns.

A far-fetched home-grown 'thriller' that had us laughing throughout at the ludicrous plot holes and over-the-top sneering baddies. Could have been so much better.

55minutes into the movie and already felt like I had to review it.
So far 4 people died with no explanation. Fuck Anna. Should of left her there. no sympathy for a screamer who fights her rescuers.
Super Reviewer

What starts out as a pretty decent mountaineering thriller soon turns survival horror movie and would have done well to keep it that way. The plot is abandoning the beautifully filmed Scottish Highlands way too soon just to add an urban showdown that feels so random, it's almost an entirely different film. Of course you can say at least things are never too predictable, but the way the scripts treats a couple of characters is pretty lackluster. Still, entertaining enough.

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.

Oh wow - great cinematography, constant action, and Melissa George. You think it's over, and it's not. I cannot recommend this movie enough.
