This is a solid, well done albeit VERY brutal British thriller, with good actors and a strong scenario, all of which is placed amongst breathtakingly beautiful landscapes.

Of all the actors, before watching this film I knew only Melissa George (I saw her in "Triangle" and "30 days of night"), but everybody here plays well. My favourite characters were Jenny (Kate Magowan), the older of the two women, who left her daughter with grandparents to relax a couple of days in the mountains in company of her significantly older husband and then Ed (Ed Speelers), frequently wise-cracking and occasionally annoying slacker, who once had a girlfriend who used to yell at him a lot in Serbo-Croatian...)))

About the scenario, without revealing anything else than what is said on the back cover of the DVD, I will just say that it begins with five friends, three guys and two girls, hiking in the wilderness of Scottish Highlands. They are all good people and the introduction, even if it is short, manages pretty well to establish a connection between the viewers and the five heroes. The place they have chosen to hike is so remote, that there is no cell phones service or Internet available and even the GPS plays tricks...

Then suddenly the five heroes discover someting in the middle of the forest... And once they discovered it, the film really begins, because now some other people simply CANNOT let them leave the wilderness alive...

I am absolutely not saying anything about what will happen next, but believe me, if you like action packed thrillers you REALLY want to see this film. The scenario is solid and the tension is maintained to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding British thriller! 10 Oct 2011
By BabaBo
I had the chance to see 'A Lonely Place to Die' at a screening in London recently and I was really blown away by it! The film is full of stunning cinematography and the aerial shots are beautiful on the big screen. The film opens with one hell of an intense scene with three of the characters 3000ft up a mountain. The way the director Julian Gilbey shot these scenes are extremely impressive and make it look like it is the actual actors up there. It does take a while for the film to get going but we do get to find out more about the characters and really connect with them.

The action really gets going when the characters find the kidnapped girl and we are quickly lead to my favourite scene in the film where two of the characters have to take a short cut for help down a dangerous cliff known as 'Devils Drop'. This scene was extremely nail biting and something happens to the lead character in which the whole audience gasped so loud!

The stunts in the film are really jaw-dropping and it's good to see a film that keeps CGI to a minimum so we are left with a realistic, intense and brutal film.

The acting in this film is top notch with another fantastic performance by the wonderful Melissa George. Sean Harris is also another stand out along with Ed Speleers who had a lot of good lines and laughs from the audience. Also well done to young actress Holly Boyd who plays the kidnapped girl.

Another highlight of the film was the music by Michael Richard Plowman and we are treated to a couple of beautiful Celtic songs at the start and end of the film which add a lovely touch.

This film should be well received and enjoyed by a wide audience when it's released. It is definitely one of the best British thrillers made in my honest opinion and I look forward to seeing more from the Gilbey brothers. 10/10!

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of your seat stuff 18 Oct 2011
I went to see this at the cinema and was very impressed. It's not often I get to see a film where they have combined fantastic visuals, great storyline and superb action. I think the first review describes the plot very well and never like to give too much away.
I would think if you can wait for the price to drop the the Blue-Ray would do justice to the stunning shots of the Scottish Highlands!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good British thriller 4 Jun 2013
By Baz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This isn't the type of movie I would normally watch, but I made an exception as it featured rock climbing and the Scottish Highlands. I'm glad I did; "A Lonely Place to Die" is a cracking wee movie. The climbing scenes are some of the most realistic to appear in a mainstream film, with the actors looking like they actually know what they're doing. The drink-fuelled poker game/slanging match rings true as well.
Once the film proper starts with the group of climbers finding Anna buried alive, the pace barely lets up for the rest of the running time. When the action pauses, the tension builds up to almost unbearable levels.

As for the DVD itself, there is an excellent commentary by Julian (the director) and William Gilbey, who co-wrote, and edited the film. A fairly standard making-of doc is also included, as well as a short film documenting Julian Gilbey climbing the Eiger and Matterhorn.

5.0 out of 5 stars All action thriller 5 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fast-moving chase thriller with lots of twists & turns. Wonderful Scottish scenery adds to the spectacle. You will be glued to the screen, so you don't miss anything. Several scary characters, especially Sean Harris.
