A Lonely Place To Die review

Bounding o’er hill and dale, this energetic chase thriller barely pauses for plausibility, pitting climbers against kidnappers in the Scottish Highlands.

There’s plenty to enjoy – genre stalwarts Melissa George and Sean Harris, gorgeous locations, action scenes spiked with urgency.

But it often seems like Julian Gilbey the director has no faith in Julian Gilbey the (co-)writer, flitting from POV to (literal) bird’s-eye-view to constantly snare our interest.

It’s a pity, because until the credibilitysnapping last act proves his fears correct, the worst he could be accused of is trying too hard.
