Goofs

When the Sheriff is talking to the deputy at about 18 minutes or so, I noticed that the rank insignia they wear is not correct for their rank in the department. They are wearing Army rank insignia on their epaulets and the deputy is wearing Corporal rank which is a higher rank than the rank the Sheriff is wearing, which is Private First Class. It should be the other way around since the Sheriff is supposed to be higher in rank. Oops. See more »

Fantastic, original storyline with plenty of twists & turns
12 November 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I am writing a review on IMDb and I am doing this for two reasons: 1). Because this is a truly great movie that deserves a review 2). To boost up the ratings because I am truly shocked that the film has received such poor ratings (so far)

I will not give much away (and nor should you do much reading on the plot) because this is one of those movies where the less you know, the better it is. The settings are very simple yet effective. And with a storyline like this there was no need for all the mumbo jumbo CGI, special effects, blasts and the whole malarkey. There are so many twists in this film and you will be glued right on the get go.

When I first watched the film, there were no reviews/ratings available as it had just been released, so I was very much looking forward to the reviews and see that (not if) other viewers enjoyed it as much as I did. Now that I see the ratings, I felt compelled (like the other reviewers here) to urge people to watch it as it is truly a remarkable, original and SMART film. So please, do yourself a favour and watch it- you will NOT be disappointed!
