Out here, there's nowhere to hide.
A group of five mountaineers are hiking and climbing in the Scottish Highlands when they discover a young Serbian girl buried in a small chamber in the wilderness. They become caught up in a terrifying game of cat and mouse with the kidnappers as they try to get the girl to safety.

A taut thriller with some great tense set-pieces that work well when the plot is stripped down to the bare essentials. After a brief set-up to establish the central characters, the film gets down to business as the discovery of a young girl trapped in the woods leads to a confrontation and extended chase with a duo of particularly nasty kidnappers. It's not original, but it is very effectively done. It is a shame then that the film needs to introduce a superfluous subplot that attempts to shed some light on the backstory of the kidnappers and young girl. It distracts from the main plot and leads to a somewhat convoluted final act that doesn't work as well as it should.

I really don't see the benefits of the main characters actions in this movie. If they didn't care about the girl and left her there, those badass dudes already had a plan to catch the bad dudes, and they could all be alive and happy. Also, the sequence where the guy with the Pig's head shoots everyone it's just ridiculous.
The performance of the actors on the movie it's good, but the plot itself it's shitty.
What I learn from it? If I mind my own business, I'll be alright, and so will everyone else.

a cool little thriller and another good performance from Melissa George.
