    ★★★★

    Very funny, clever and brutal in equal measures. The comedy doesn't fizzle out like most horror comedies part way through.  And watch out for Dexter Fletcher's awesome cameo.

    ★★

    Very disappointing and a missed opportunity. Dominic's previous film Bait was very competently directed but this felt childish and amateur. I appreciate it was not trying to be anything other than puerile, but it fails to entertain on any level.

    ★★★★

    Still got it after all these years. Not a single note of incidental music throughout the whole film but despite (or possibly because) of this it has some very tense moments. It also has some Hitchcockian shots, which is ironic as evidently Hitchcock saw this and was inspired to make Psycho.

    ★★★★

    Good fun - intelligent script, sharp acting and some splendid Bond action scenes. Think a combination of Skyfall, You Only Live Twice and OHMSS and you're there.
