No One Lives (2012)

posterDirector: Ryuhei Kitamura

Writer: David Cohen (Screenplay)

Starring: Luke Evans, Adelaide Clemens, Lee Tergesen, Derek Magyer, America Olivo, Beau Knapp, Lindsey Shaw, George Murdoch, Laura Ramsey

 

Story: When a happy couple Driver (Evans) and Betty (Ramsey) are travelling across America on a vacation, their holiday is thrown into turmoil. A gang of thieves led by Hoag (Tergesen) have had a job go wrong because of loose cannon Flynn (Magyar). Flynn sees an easy score to try and recover the lost loot but he picks off a fight he and the gang cannot handle. After stealing Driver’s car he makes a shocking discovery in the boot, Emma (Clemens) a missing heiress can the gang survive long enough to collect the reward or will Driver show his true colours.

 

Verdict:

 

Action: Good fight scenes but nothing more than it needed to be (9/10)

 

Horror: Strong horror follows all the rules with isolation and a group of people that have no limits. (9/10)

 

Thriller: Not knowing which one of the gang will be the next victim makes this a very good thriller (8/10)

 

Special Effects: Some strong bloody special effects (9/10)

 

Settings: Good setting for horror (8/10)

 

Suggestion: I would say all horror film fans will enjoy this full of most guilty pleasures a horror can offer (9/10)

 

Star Performance Luke Evans – Driver

 

Favourite Character Driver

 

Best Part: Ethan makes Driver mad with dire consequences for him.

 

Worst Part: Bit short but any longer could have taken away the energy throughout.

 

Overall: A very good horror that went pretty much under the radar should be given a chance as it shows everything you need in a memorable horror, Luke Evans shines as Driver a man with a nasty side which equals his appearances in Fast 6. Adelaide Clemens pulls of the not quite so innocent damsel in distress. It is good to see a film where not a single character comes off as an innocent but a group who all have goodness in them. My question to you in can you handle No One Lives?
