  • No one could call this a notable film, though there is some good location work and a performance from a bearded Dyer that may be a bit over the top but still makes its mark.

  • Bizarrely and excruciatingly acted by Dyer a lot of the time, but actually this film isn't as bad as all that - there is some interesting and atmospheric location work as the pair travel through the bleak urban wilderness.

  • Poor, but not totally without merit. Dyer's risible performance lingers for all the wrong reasons.

  • In Buried, Ryan Reynolds spends the whole film underground in a coffin - child's play compared to what Anna Walton is put through here. She spends an entire night locked in a car with Danny Dyer - while he acts at her.

  • Thoughtfully chilling and impressively performed, Deviation is a well-sustained thriller.

    Feb 23, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Should be an edge-of-the-seat thrill ride, but amounts to an unintentionally funny B movie, with Dyer mugging to camera and Walton simpering next to him.

    Danny dyer rolls out another brit flick, here coming off intense but unintentionally funny, a twoi haner with anna watson, at times it shifts into gear then looses it just as quickly, dont expect dyer to progress from this.
