We watched this movie during the end of the year holidays and I wish that there would have been snow here in Brussels. Unfortunately, just like every other years, it’s only wind and rain.
However, this movie brought enough snow for one evening as we get to spend 95 minutes with four other people during a blizzard, stranded at an isolated highway rest stop in the mountains. One of them is the owner of a van in which is hidden a kidnapped little girl.
Maybe I haven’t watched enough thrillers in my life (I seriously doubt that), but I didn’t predict half of what happens in the movie. We watched it without reading the novel it is based on but I added it to my read list for next year.
The cinematography and score were surprisingly excellent for a low budget B film. All casting and performances were spot-on, especially Havana Rose who nailed the painful scenes and, believe me, there are quiet a few of those.
These are the kind of movies I wish were being made more often. It is relentlessly fast paced and grounded with twists and a solid R rating that they aren’t afraid to use to its full potential.
We had a very good time with ‘No Exit’. It’s our kind of movie and it’s one I would highly recommend.
