By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 15 2013
Format: DVD
This is an independent Brit thriller and it is actually rather good. The plot is we have a crime infested tower block in what looks like a sink hole in London; it is the sort of place where everything smells of urine and the lifts about as reliable as an African dictatorships human rights record. Then one night a teenager is dragged down the hallways to be kicked to death. When the police try to investigate no-one has seen or heard a thing.

The council have decided to knock it down and let developers move in, but the residents on the top floor are yet to be re-housed. They are a dysfunctional lot with Kurtis (Jack O'Connell - `Skins') running a sort of protection racket. Then one morning as they awaken to a new day, a sniper starts to kill the residents and he means to take absolutely no prisoners. The surviving people realise they are going to have to come together to survive, the question is how?

This also stars Sheridan Smith as Becky (`Gavin and Stacey') and she is actually both good as a character and has a good screen presence. We also have Paul the alcoholic, nice guy Russell Tovey (`Him and Her') who gets the role down to pat. This is a small budget but it does not always show, as the block is run down anyway and most of the action takes place in the confines of the building. There is genuine tension and I was hooked from early on.

I thought this was going to be a siege type film along the lines of `Assault on precinct 13' or something like that, but this is actually darker as they just do not know why they are being targeted. Directors James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson have crafted a really well made film that will hopefully get a lot more attention than it has so far received and is something they should be proud of.

Great little suspense thriller Aug. 3 2013

I saw this when it showed at Fantastic Fest in 2012, and it's a great, simple, and unique thriller. If you're in the mood to watch terrible things happen to varying levels of terrible people, this is the movie for you!

A solid thriller.. May 6 2014

A well acted, suspenseful film about a group of apartment dwellers under seige by an unknown sniper. Unknown that is until the end. An outstanding performance by Jack O'Connell.

I had a bit of trouble understanding some of the dialog due to the heavy accents. Unfortunatly, the DVD was missing the subtitle option which would have helped.

Very good film overall.

Kept you on the edge of your seat wondering who was responsible. May 16 2014

Was a mystery to try and figure out who the "bad" guy was who was responsible for a lot of pain and death. Not for the faint of heart. Twist at the end which I didn't see coming. Enjoyed the film. It is English, so dialogue can be difficult at times.
Awesome British movie AGAIN. July 5 2015

First off, Becky (Sheridan Smith) and Pauly (Russell Tovey) and Curtis (Jack O'Connell) are outstanding. Don't get me wrong so is the rest of the cast all of them are terrific. I totally loved the idea of this movie, it is something I haven't seen, similar but not in this context. A 15 year old boy is murdered on the top floor of a huge apartment building. No one cares enough to help (becky tries) but no one will talk about it to the cops. One year later these same people are victims of a sniper somewhere nearby. The exits are booby trapped and they are all alone. Very suspenseful and tense. Violent but very good. I do love my British movies. This one is an excellent addition to the rest. Bravo, to the director, the writer the actors and everyone involved. The ending was a little predictable but well worth the watch.
Good suspense thriller, but a lot of plot holes Sept. 10 2013

It takes about 15 minutes for this thing to get going, but once the sniper started picking off people through their living room windows, i was hooked. Taken on that level, this is a good movie. But once the identity of the sniper is revealed, i started asking a lot of questions and there aren't any answers that make sense. It would almost have been better if they had never told us the identity of the bad guy, and had him disappear into the night. If you can get past that, you'll like this movie.
