Brilliant
25 May 2018 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Brilliant. Gripping, and not at all predictable. Not simply a violence-in-the-wilderness thriller, characters are developed and both sides of the story examined. The hero is flawed, and the whole movie feels "real", like you're right there with the protagonists.

The use of first-person-shooter angles was a stroke of genius, and showed the shooters' mindsets.

Cinematography was great, editing perfect, acting very good. Very engaging, solid script.
