Part high-altitude adventure movie, part kidnapping caper film, "A Lonely Place to Die" is more exciting than smart, though that's not the worst thing you can say about a movie.

I never expect much from a small-studio or low-budget thriller because they're usually disappointing. But "A Lonely Place to Die" is a cut above them, with only minor logic plot points getting in the way.

Probably one of the most engrossing films in a truly lackluster year...

The film's relentless momentum, coupled with Ali Asad's breathtaking location photography, distract us from the often two-dimensional supporting characters.

John Gholson

It's simply too good to label it a misfire, but the film starts from the gate with such a confident, breathless level of suspense that it's a shame that it can't be maintained.

Paul Chambers

Despite the many faults with the story (particularly the logic), there's good action and the film moves well once it gets started. Lots of running, climbing and dodging bullets. You could do worse.

Shawn Levy

It's a deeply satisfying entertainment filled with energy and made with savvy and cinematic wit. And it marks Gilbey as a director to keep an eye on.
