User Review

A good effort but a bit disappointing


This movie started off well with an interesting idea, but somehow ran
out of steam, or commitment, about half way through.

Melissa George and her friends go climbing in Scotland and stumble
across a secret buried in the woods. They try and go for help but
discover that they're not alone. The movie starts off as slow burning
and intriguing, with plenty of sweeping shots of the rugged Scottish
landscape, it then changes abruptly about half way through, losing all
of its subtlety and becomes a standard chase movie with guns. It's
almost as if the director lost their nerve and decided to go for blood
and glory just in case the audience gets a little bored. Some scenes
seem to be thrown in just so someone else can be killed, and the body
count by the end of the movie is a bit on the high side.

The acting is fine, and I don't have any huge issues with the script,
it's just it could of been a nice little thriller rather than half a
good movie, and half a predictable one.
