Movie review - A Lonely Place to Die (2011)

A Lonely Place to Die (2011) / adventure, thriller, crime

Directed by Julian Gilbey
Written by Will Gilbey and Julian Gilbey
Produced by Michael Loveday
Starring: Melissa George Kate Magowan Edward Speleers Karel Roden Sean Harris Stephen McCole Alec Newman Eamonn Walker
Trailer: click.

You climb the mountain to see the view but there is just a blur!

A group of five mountaineers are hiking and climbing in the Scottish Highlands when they discover a young Serbian girl buried alive in a small chamber in the wilderness. They not only face dangerous terrain with a child but also discover that they're not alone.

This outdoors thriller started off really good, slowly, tense yet intriguing and with an interesting idea but unfortunately ran out of steam somewhere in the middle. The mountains, scenery and all the action was shot excellent, cast did solid job however the film changed direction for the worse. I don't want to spoil it so I can't write much about it but I'm sure you'll notice that too. So disappointing and such a wasted potential! 2+/5
