      Heather B This has got to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Terrible, improbable writing. Choppy direction. Weird arty attempts. So bad that I stuck it out. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie was a bit disjunctive, however, it was entertaining and probably close to the truth. Would watch agan. Jim Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member good war pic/thriller combo also gets a half star 4 starring that star trek chick Marina Sirtis Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolute shit! Do not waste your precious time on this movie. You're better off cutting your fingers. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Documentarist Tristan Loraineâ(TM)s independent political thriller addresses a hot potato topic. The movie tells a grim story of political games, the absence of ethics during wartime and the calculated cruelty people enjoy inflicting on others. It all begins with a negotiation. The British Prime Minister negotiates a re-election guarantee arms deal with the prize of revealing the location of a military unit in Iraq. From this fateful meeting the story takes off to different directions. We get to see the capture of the unit and the intense, painfully oppressive torture one of the soldiers goes through in the hands of terrorists. We follow that officerâ(TM)s sister who is determined to find out the truth and let the whole world know. What ensues is a psychological game leading to inconvenient revelations. The film is very two-faced. Itâ(TM)s predictable, clichà (C)d, goes overboard a bit, but at the same time it reaches a state thatâ(TM)s courageous and at times truly effective. Stories like this tend to often end up too black and white, but this time around the result is black and black. The message here is that any party in a war is a bad guy and that there is no escaping ethical responsibility by masking personal ambition and misanthropy as patriotism. The small budget does show, the script has some truly weak points, but everything is compensated by a few gems on each area. A few of the scenes are written truly well, the executionâ(TM)s simplicity makes certain scenes feel all the more real, and there is also some true talent in the cast, most notably Marina Sirtis who delivers a compellingly multifaceted performance as an iron hard cabinet member. Most of all I appreciate the ambition and boldness of this project, even if the cinematic accomplishments donâ(TM)t always do it justice. This one makes you think, even making you wonder how much of the story could be a bit more than pure fiction. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Some over-acting, lots of implausibility in the plot, but if you can get around this it is a mildly entertaining political thriller.

      Adam Woodward Little White Lies Charging boldly into battle, 31 North 62 East manages to conquer its low-budget shortcomings, emerging bruised, battered but ultimately triumphant. Sep 18, 2009 Full Review David Parkinson Empire Magazine Messy and curiously dated in tone. This fails to make you care about the convoluted plot, with ill-drawn characters. Rated: 2/5 Sep 18, 2009 Full Review Toby Young Times (UK) The storyline is hackneyed and nonsensical, as if Loraine had plucked clichs from episodes of The Professionals and strung them together. Rated: 1/5 Sep 18, 2009 Full Review Daniel Etherington Film4 As a low-budget, quickly-made Brit flick, this is impressive for its ambition, but as a globe-spanning political thriller it lacks credibility and veers into the absurd. Rated: 2/5 Sep 18, 2009 Full Review Tim Evans Sky Cinema A half-baked political thriller that reeks of a feature-length student YouTube clip. Rated: 1/5 Sep 18, 2009 Full Review Sam Wigley Total Film Even John Rhys-Davies as the PM struggles to lend gravitas to the comically earnest dialogue and knee-jerk conspiracy theorising.
