A well made movie with one stellar character.
10 August 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was fairly entertained by this film, but it wasn't anything I would run out and tell my friends about. Very well written story, very believable acting including one VERY intense role by Jake Muxworthy.

Borderland had its ups and downs when it came to the overall play out, but it was very well made none the less. The death scenes were gruesome, the reactions were emotional and well done and the little comedy that was there was actually quite witty.

Over all I think it is very much worth the watch, but if you're looking to get blown away by a movie, I wouldn't recommend this one. I believe Muxworthy is an actor that is going to have a very bright future in this business, he absolutely has the skill to star in a mainline film.
