Audience Reviews for Nine Miles Down


Solid performances by Adrian Paul and Kate Nauta successfully sell this rather muddled script. Before the screenplay springs a deus ex machina on you, you may either be tired of or held in suspense by the constant "what is real and what isn't" trope. But this rational resolution is not the end; more is to come and while this may also be a rational resolution, it also may not be.

Mediocre thriller that really fails to entertain, Nine Miles Down is a film that should have been much better than what it turned out to be. The film started off well enough, but the film quickly ran out of steam and ended up being a dull, predictable affair that ended up being quite boring and uninteresting. The script is underdeveloped and lacks anything really interesting. The cast are bland and don't offer anything interesting to the film. I think that's a shame because this one really could have been great. Unfortunately, it fails to be entertaining or memorable for the viewer. This film lacks in many respects and should have reworked significantly before being green lit. This is just a thriller that ends up lacking in terms of thrills and ideas that should have worked. This film ends up being a waste of time with nothing really entertaining or memorable. I really wanted to enjoy the film, but it just failed to be any good. The result is a mediocre movie that leaves a lot to be desired and you are simply disappointed by the time the credits roll. Nine Miles Down is a movie that is boring and pointless; it really isn't worth your time. If you're looking for something good here, you'll be disappointed. This film is flawed and could have been much better. Skip out on Nine Miles Down, you'll be glad you did. The one just doesn't deliver on its premise and it's a mess due to a lazy cast and direction. This film was a letdown and I expected much more.

I will say one thing about this movie: the trailer does it no justice. It's much better than expected. I don't know what I expected - B-grade rubbish, maybe - but it's actually put together and acted very well. The concept is original, which counts for something, and it's fun to watch. It's not as deep or profound as several critics pointed out; it's purely entertainment. In this respect and the fact that the concept is indeed "fresh", Nine Miles Down may well be worth your time.
