Editorial Reviews

A group of climbers make a grim discovery high up in the mountains: buried amongst the peaks is an eight-year-old girl, terrified, dehydrated and unable to speak a word of English. Alison (Melissa George, TV s Grey s Anatomy, 30 Days of Night), the group leader, convinces her group to rescue her. But as they attempt to take the girl to safety, they become involved in an elaborate kidnapping plot and soon must fight for their lives as they re pursued by both the girl s kidnappers and a group of hired mercenaries sent to return the girl to her war criminal father. With danger all around them and mountainous terrain to navigate, Alison and her party are in for a grueling ordeal in order to save both the girl and themselves.

A LONELY PLACE TO DIE is an intense action thriller buoyed by breathtaking climbing sequences and quick-paced action sequences. Set in the gorgeous Scottish Highlands, the film follows five mature adults on a climbing vacation who stumble upon a little girl buried underground, obviously a victim of kidnapping. Their decision to rescue the child propels them into a cat and mouse confrontation with the deadly and relentless kidnappers.
What elevates this sharp indie is the characters are believable and empathic, even if we don't get a lot of background we do care about them and want them to come out on top. Director Julian Gilbey expertly keeps the tension intact and elicits strong performances from his talented cast.
Melissa George (TRIANGLE, BAG OF BONES) gives an outstanding committed performance as the feisty but sensitive Allison. Ed Speelis is good as the roguish Ed who experiences a sudden and required maturity. Sean Harris oozes chilli9ng venom as evil Mr. Kidd and Karel Roden quietly compelling as Darko, the negotiator. Eammon Walker and Alec Newman round out the cast. Holly Boyd is effective as the kidnapped child.
A LONELY PLACE TO DIE is dark and an ultimate downer. Its also an expertly filmed thriller worthy of more attention.

One of the best suspense thrillers I have ever seen. It's a British film and the only person in the cast who I recognized was Kate Magowan from her role in Stardust. Nevertheless, the casting is superb and everyone fits into their role seamlessly. There are no over-the-top or forced performances, and this is helped by the crisp dialogue.

The cinematography is top notch. The director uses wide-angle shots when needed, close-ups when they are called for and the use of 'chase' cameras is also well done. Editing is great with no scene-time wasted.

I must credit the music for creating a fitting atmosphere while watching the film. It starts off with a haunting song nicely representing the mood of being alone in the Scottish Highlands and once the action gets going, it switches to faster tracks while never intruding on the dialogue or what's happening on screen.

The script doesn't let down the actors, neither do the actors let down the script. This film is nearly perfect given the budget it was shot on. It should have had a lot more publicity, deservedly, unlike 90% of summer blockbusters.

The Gilbey brothers, Julian and Will, almost didn't get to see their vision of A Lonely Place To Die, come to fruition. During one of the numerous climbing sequences a boulder came crashing down, almost hitting the production team.
The film which was filmed in the Scottish highlands focuses on five mountaineers, who get caught up in fight-to survive the elements and ruthless killers.
The climbers rest at the top of the ridge when Alison (Melissa George) tells the rest of the gang to be quiet, that she hears something.
Soon the group discover a vent pipe coming out from under the ground with a weak voice coming from beneath. They dig, uncovering a chamber with a young Serbian girl inside. She can't speak English and they can't speak Serbian but they slowly become aware that she has been hidden away as part of a kidnapping plot.
Miles from civilization the hikers must decide what to do. Knowing the danger, some want to abandon the girl saying "at least she's free from her containment." But conscience prevails and they concur they must become reluctant heroes. The girl has no experience climbing. The terrain is unforgiving so they split up with two going for help, while the other follow a longer but safer path to the nearest community.
The kidnappers return, armed to the teeth and start the deadliest of hunts.
This is a terrifying cat and mouse where the obstacles are steep, the prey unarmed and the odds astronomical.
This is a sleeper, must-see thriller.

Watched this on demand and have to admit it was a fun surprise. The director does a nice job of taking what could be a standard horror movie theme of people being chased in the woods by bad guys and turning it into a more action thriller filled with some great outdoor cinematography. The actress who plays the lead stands out as turning what could have been your standard tough indestructible female action hero character into a fallible person you care about. Someone who is like most people in an extreme situation = scared out of there mind & not sure if she is making the best choices but is willing to try to do the right thing. While the accents make you strain (closed caption is the way to go) and the ending needed to be edited a little title this is a worthy action/thriller.

This movie is good entertainment. I found myself asking the question "What's going on here?" as every new scene seemed to further complicate the story. The film keeps you guessing about the various characters and thus keeps you engaged throughout. This is a film that you can easily see twice because the second time through you know the basic story and then you can just sit back and enjoy the action.

A Lonely Place to Die is a movie best seen knowing as little as possible about it so, if you've avoided learning about the plot so far, just watch the movie. It plays with expectations and conventions to appear to morph from genre to genre while actually staying true to its own story. It's an adventure tale that moves along briskly without dawdling where it shouldn't and without rushing, either. The few very, very slight missteps are only apparent in contrast to the assuredness of the rest of the film and they pass, quickly to be forgotten. The Scottish Highlands setting verges on beautiful familiarity but reveals strangely beautiful alienness as the film progresses. The action and stuntwork in the film remains at a human level and is all the more effective for it.
