I found this film quite a laboured watch. It tended to feel like a stomp through knee high snow rather than the slick pacy thriller the trailer would have you believe it to be. The partnership between Fassbender and Ferguson feels contrived and as a result fails to grow the emotional capital required to make you feel anything towards the end. I also found the twist too plainly signposted. The stark colour palette of the film helped emphasise the remote beauty of this film's location, but a little distraction might have been welcome. Ultimately this film makes you wait a long time for something to happen, and when it finally does it feels like scant reward for your efforts.
