A below par British action thriller. I use both words in their broadest terms as what is supposed to be a chase across the Finish mountains turns into a nature film on the lives of the Laplanders for a large length of the film.
The lead characters deliver their lines so woodenly that if you closed your eyes they could be reading out loud from a drawing room in Hampstead Heath, so any attempt at pace is lost, not that there was much of an attempt in the first place.
If anything you have to sympathise with one of the villains, on the grounds that they want to 'get away from it all'.
Only worth while if it is on TV on a wet afternoon, when it is marginally better than watching rain hitting the window.
