Shoddily Constructed Thriller
6 February 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Whilst i agree the sentiments of the other reviewer about the lack of reviews for British films ,i cannot share any enthusiasm for this film.It is poorly constructed with gaping holes in the plot.The film completely changes tack after about 50 minutes so that instead of a hunt for treasure it becomes over complicated with characters introduced with very little explanation.The tie in to these characters is a conversation between Considine and Adams overheard by her flatmate.This begs the question as to how the flatmate came to be in the right place at the right time.The support cast is good but unfortunately by the time the climax came around i felt totally disengaged and disinterested.
