A British blinder
'A gut-wrenching chiller… the best British genre film in years' ***** Jamie Graham, Total Film
'A strong contender for best British film of the year. Film of the Week. It’s hard to remember a British movie as nerve-shreddingly effective since ‘Dead Man’s Shoes’ in 2004… look for it on ‘Best of British’ lists for a long time to come.'
***** Time Out
'A dark, funny, disturbing picture… With this, Wheatley elevates himself from kill list to A list… he’s among the most promising filmmakers in Britain'
'A bold mash-up of the hit-man genre with an insane Wicker Man-style horror movie'
Kevin Maher, The Times

That got my attention straight away as I had never heard of it and all that praise from my two favorite film magazines I bought it there and then. For whatever reason I watched this around 1am in the morning and by the time it finished at 2.30am I didint get to bed till 4am. It left me close to shaking. It takes you into a world of pure evil, not a feeling I have had from a film since watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
I was so glad to do a blind buy and it was worth every penny. The transfer is crisp and looks great throughout. The extras are more than enough with a great tho frustrating audio commentary by director Ben Wheatley. Great film, great Blu-Ray.
This is one of those films that slipped under the radar somewhat, despite great praise from critics and 5-star reviews, but to get people to pay attention to it, some of the key plot details were teased out. For example, I was aware that the film had a horror-style twist, which alerted me to some of the more peculiar moments. The best way to experience this film would be to go in blind, as the change of gears as the film switches genres is better experienced without prior knowledge.
For a low-budget British film, it didn't particularly feel low-budget. Some of the more violent set-pieces were orchestrated so deftly that one sequence had me confused to how they pulled it off without actually hammering an actor's head in. The actors improvised some of the lines during the film, something which adds to the realism of the scenes and shows spontaneous reactions to each other, which works much better than following a script in some places.
For a horror movie, it never quite hits the scary note and while some moments are chilling and creepy, it doesn't fully qualify as a horror to me. The sequence in the tunnels could have been more effective with some better lighting, as what should have been a thrilling chase to safety resembled a chaotic jog in relative darkness.
I would recommend this to people who like independent British cinema and a mish-mash of genres. It reminds me of some of the Japanese/Korean movies from the last decade where the film takes a complete twist into a totally different genre from its beginnings.
