Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As simple exploitation fare, this barely works since the intermittent carnage never gathers much momentum - and a big, bare-knuckle set piece is dismayingly tame."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"There's style and intensity in this nasty little British thriller, but a thinly developed script keeps it from generating much real suspense or meaning as the story gets increasingly brutal."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Ultimately let down by a confused script, unlikeable characters, poor direction, some incoherent editing and a laughably pretentious ending."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"An ordinary script and characters that are impossible to really care about saps the life from this low-budget Brit thriller."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"It's close in aspiration, though not in achievement, to the Walter Hill classic Southern Comfort..."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"Comes with horribly uneven performances and vastly unappealing characters acting in ways nobody ever, ever would."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"A potentially interesting idea for a lo-fi British Deliverance-style thriller is badly let down by very slack acting and dialogue, topped off with humourless sentimentalism."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Boasts a beautiful slide-guitar score, a fearsome bare-knuckle boxing sequence and a sweary cameo from Charlie Boorman."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"An amateurish, low-budget bloodbath."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"When the film's biggest star is Charley Boorman, you've got to worry."
‑ James Benefield, Little White Lies
"Technically, it's a mess with all sorts of sound and editing problems although McManus shows - as cinematographer - he's got the eye for the occasional good shot."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
