    Three friends discover their new flatmate dead but loaded with cash.

    It's fairly entertaining but it just runs out of steam pretty quickly. The characters become less interesting as the movie progresses.

    It's a fine debut but I've always found it a tad overrated.

    Smart, stylish, darkly comic thriller from Danny Boyle with three strong performances by the leads.

    Lots of screenwriting 101 stuff that this film misses and makes it feel stupid

    It's all drenched in the pre-Se7en post-eighties humorous crime thriller vibe and whereas Boyle's direction is uneven at best across the rest of his filmography, in Shallow Grave he pulls a taut focus into an effective crime thriller that give Ewan McGregor, Christopher Eccleston and Kerry Fox a real chance to shine. Thanks to a heftily comedic and brilliantly morbid screenplay the tension effectively reaches a breaking point even as punctuated by comedy every second scene. This is some of…

    I can't believe I once thought this film was good, now as semi-mature adult I'm shocked to discover that not only isn't this a good movie, it's actually pretty bad. As soon as Ewan McGregor appeared on screen I wanted to punch him in the face, he's so annoying in this film. The others aren't much better either, they all believe themselves to be clever but just come across as obnoxious and crude. I struggle to believe there's a person…

    It seems as though right from the very beginning Danny Boyle knew what a Danny Boyle movie was going to look like.

    Danny Boyle kick started his career with this neo noirish tale of greed laced with comical undertones..There are some scenes which will definitely appall you. There is some vagueness and this one does need a rewatch.
