A simple action thriller with some guilty pleasure for Jeremy Irvine fans
13 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Michael Douglas has played a number of relentless corporate types before, and in The Reach he goes to the extreme. His character is devoid of redeemable human values and just ugly and grumpy with money to burn. He is a cruel advocate of globalization and a merciless hunter who likes to equip himself with excessive firearm.

When he enters the desert with a young tracker played by Jeremy Irvine, it soon becomes apparent pitting these two against each other is inevitable. Irvine plays a young and naive small town man far removed from urban life. The only thing he cherishes is his girlfriend (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) that he has known since childhood, who unfortunately can't wait to skip their hometown and be somewhere else.

The filthy rich entrepreneur vs. innocent hometown boy formula is trite but you can still enjoy it for the sheer absurdity of it. Irvine is perfectly stoic and his bare torso is tossed around in many scenes for the guilty pleasure of his fans. There is not real drama in the film but you can find some good action sequences in the backdrop of the spectacular desert, which should keep you entertained throughout.
