No One Lives (2012)

This was one of many  movies just added onto my Sky movie package so I decided to give it a go.  It just sounded like a film filled with violence and let’s face it folks, sometimes it’s just nice to switch off and watch something like that…

So it’s a film that get’s into it quite early on and just doesn’t stop from there.  There is a ‘crazy’ red-neck family in this movie, aren’t they always fun? Luke Evans plays the main character, he’s got no name though (ohhhh mysterious) and he’s completely cold and ruthless all the way through the movie.

Basically the family kidnap Luke and his girlfriend when robbing them proves difficult, they try to kill the pair and then the tables are turned…

The film seems pretty low budget but the cast are decent actors. Adelaide Clemens is really good in this film however, I won’t say much about her character as it’s an interesting situation… I will say though that I actually thought it was Carey Mulligan (my bad) because the pair look so similar, whilst on that subject Michelle Williams could also be related to the two of them…

There’s no effects really other than your standard gore and violence, which is all filmed pretty well. There’s plenty of torture scenes too so if you’re squeamish this isn’t a film for you…

This movie isn’t just your average gory redneck in the middle of nowhere movie, there’s a few twists in the story which leave you unsure of who you’re supposed to be rooting for. I really enjoyed the film, it keeps you guessing and there’s a slight twist to it.  A simple story really but very well written and the ending did leave me wanting more which rarely happens when it comes to this type of film. I think they could defiantly do more with Luke Evans character here that wouldn’t ruin this movie or be a terrible idea for another film. Basically if you want a fast paced, action ride with a large amount of ‘mindless violence’ then this is the movie for you! (Making it one of my dad’s favorites…)

Perfect Popcorn Score – I’m giving it a solid eight it’s good violent fun and there’s an interesting sub-plot going on within a straight forward story-line that makes this movie stand out. Decent acting for a low budget film too… 8/10
