Movie Info

A corrupt British Prime Minister becomes the subject of an intense investigation after giving up the location of an SAS unit in Afghanistan in order to secure a highly-lucrative arms deal. In the wake of finalizing an $80 million weapons accord with a prominent Afghan Sheik, British Prime Minister John Hammond grows confident that his chances of being reelected are high. But when a group of British soldiers are implicated in the murder of the Sheik's nephew, the prime minister begins to fear that his political career could quickly unravel. Desperate, Prime Minister Hammond attempts to remain in the Sheik's good graces by revealing the location of a clandestine SAS unit in Afghanistan despite the fact that regiment had no involvement in the murder whatsoever. Two months after the attack all of the SAS soldiers are presumed dead, but Italian Special Forces reveal that the sole survivor, Captain Jill Mandelson, incredibly managed to elude capture. Now Captain Mandelson wants answers. With the help of her twin sister Kimberly and some powerful contacts in the French Secret Service, Captain Mandelson prepares to confront the most powerful people in Britain to uncover the truth and hold Prime Minister Hammond accountable for his crimes.

Critic Reviews for 31 North 62 East (Too Close to the Truth)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

Charging boldly into battle, 31 North 62 East manages to conquer its low-budget shortcomings, emerging bruised, battered but ultimately triumphant.

September 18, 2009

Messy and curiously dated in tone. This fails to make you care about the convoluted plot, with ill-drawn characters.

September 18, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The storyline is hackneyed and nonsensical, as if Loraine had plucked clichés from episodes of The Professionals and strung them together.

September 18, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

[The] fiendish scheme crumbles under an onslaught of machine-tooled plot twists and a barrage of expository dialogue.

Top Critic

Writer-director Tristan Loraine has grand schemes in the pipeline, but this absurd stab at sub-Tom-Clancy conspiracy thrills won't help his credentials. When Craig Fairbrass is your closest thing to a badge of quality, be afraid.

September 18, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A low-budget British "thriller" that is comfortably the worst film I can remember seeing: threadbare plot, clunking dialogue, brain-dead conspiracy theorising, and a gallery of embarrassing racial stereotypes. Avoid at all costs.
