James' Review of A Lonely Place to Die
A Lonely Place to Die(2011)
One of the best British films I have ever seen. Personally what made me want to watch it was Melissa George, after watching her amazing performance in Triangle and her exciting role in 30 Days of Night, she strikes me as a fantastic actress and I'll watch anything with her starring in it. Her role as Alison, a climber and a hiker is probably her most wild yet as she dangles off cliff edges and dodges bullets in this one of a kind thriller. The cast are brilliant who each deliver smashing performances, I really liked the characters so it was a shame when most of them got shot and fell victim to the ruthless kidnappers. The great thing about British thrillers or horrors is that the characters have a good bit of banter, as for A Lonely Place To Die there is plenty of it making this film quite humorous at times. There is no such thing as a perfect thriller, but if there was "A Lonely Place To Die" would definitely be a contender. The tension is relentless, you will be on the edge watching the characters hang in the balance. Guaranteed to leave you breathless, this film is a masterpiece for thrills and chills.
