Good movie and a great performance by Aneurin Barnard
15 November 2012 | by demetrius11See all my reviews

This movie obviously did not have the budget of the fancy multi-billion Hollywood production. Thus, in order to capture us, it focuses on one thing that Hollywood can not put a price on. Talent and acting. Aneurin Barnard is an excellent choice as the lead actor, and gives a wonderful and solid performance. He obviously is a very talented actor, and I am convinced that we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future. Hopefully not in crappy Hollywood high-budget flicks, but in films that focus on performance and talent. The entire cast was quite good in general, and combined with the direction, they created a "wonderful" claustrophobic atmosphere, that was exactly what this story needed. This movie will not impress due to its originality (as it is not very original really), but it is good due to the work put in it by talented individuals, and it is definitely worth seeing.
