This is a powerful indy thriller that demonstrates what can be achieved with a small budget as long as you have a good idea, a good script, and a good cast. The cinematography is impressive, as is the first time direction from Gorak. The performances are convincing, adding weight to this disturbing examination of the effects of terrorist activities on Mr and Mrs Everyman. Their struggle to survive makes for harrowing viewing, and, although it does run out of steam in the middle, it provides a memorable experience. It's a shame that a little humour wasn't injected, particularly during the slightly flat mid-section, and the ending, on reflection, seems just a tad contrived. But overall this is a muscular and unsettling piece of worthwhile cinema.
