Ratings & Reviews

  1. Rohan Berry's rating of the film The Backwoods

    A very unsatisfying international coproduction genre movie, with a British, French and Spanish cast. This takes the bare bones of seventies exploitation fare like STRAW DOGS and THE HILLS HAVE EYES and makes a very bland and predictable Spanish-set throwback film. Gary Oldman is reasonable as the Brit-Spaniard coming home, but the likes of Considine and Ledoyen are hopelessly adrift in underwritten roles.

  2. GreenROCK's rating of the film The Backwoods

    Storyline and setting are fine. But acting, with some exceptions, was very bad.

  3. Dominic McGuire's rating of the film The Backwoods

    Quite disappointing. It lacks the intensity or punch of similar films, Straw Dogs or Eden Lake.

  4. ajdehany's rating of the film The Backwoods

    A study of disorientation and the escalation of fear when these outsiders and villagers meet. The key incident is what the girl does at the end; clearly the outsiders have somewhat misunderstood what they've walked into (even though you'd have done the same as them); and throughout the hunt the villagers are afraid too, coarse & criminal as they are: they're not sure how to play it either.

  5. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Backwoods

    were it not for Gary Oldman and Paddy Considine this would be rather limp. with them barely better. Lacked tension, and was barely believable most of the time.

  6. Samuel Jeanblanc's rating of the film The Backwoods

    One of the worst thriller I've seen. Why on Mubi?

  7. mattywuh's rating of the film The Backwoods

    A rather disappointing thriller, lacking in substance.

  8. James Erskine's rating of the film The Backwoods

  9. janh24's rating of the film The Backwoods

    What an odd, unrewarding film this is. Never has the word unreality felt more apt.

  10. tracy's rating of the film The Backwoods

    subtitles would have been most helpful

  11. mihaela varzari's rating of the film The Backwoods

    minus 5 stars. why did mubi upload it?

  12. Darran Barton's rating of the film The Backwoods

  13. Mirkle's rating of the film The Backwoods

    I managed two thirds of this, but .... no pude mas. Silliisimo. English subtitles wouldn't make it any better. Although it was made in 2006, it's set in the 1970s for some reason and bizarrely has the sensibility of a bad seventies film.

  14. 'king Harold's rating of the film The Backwoods

    Quite an effective thriller, definitely worth a watch. I liked the realistic relationships in this context. Good soundtrack, photography, location and I'm a fan Oldman and Considine. Subtitles are on now, I just emailed support, simple really, can't understand why anyone would review a film if you can't understand half of it, not fair on the film is it?
