[b]A real find. Banshee pulled me in and kept me glued. Dialogue was smart, sutble and had good detail. Characters were quirky and well drawn. Filled with little surprises, camera work here has good perspective. Running at a fast pace with lots of color, Banshee has many clever moments that spin the plot to keep it frantic. With a tight script that was well cast and well acted, Banshee even has a female lead that takes care of her own cute ass .. Direction here is creative not static. Even the sound and music are very well mixed. With its clever editing, framed with a catchy song, Banshee is colorful rush, a fast ride and a bit of a scare.

Not bad. The soundtrack was kind of cheesy but that's about it.

Taryn Manning is an appealing performer and is well cast, but the film has no depth. It is cold and unfeeling making it uninvolving. The characters lack dimension.

Not a terrible movie by far. I enjoyed the serial killer, and interesting fetish for him to have. Terrible acting and in desperate need of more action, but it's an okay movie for sure.

Definitely a C grade movie... However they do get points for trying hard and some moments...

Typically canadian --> Great storyline, a bit shy on the acting.

I wouldn't be surprised if an american production company bought the rights and made it a hot-shot movie, just like they did with 21 (The Last Casino was made first).

Very good for a canadian flick, decent car chases and turns out to be a psycho killer movie.

Discovered this one by accident, but it was actually not a bad flick and kept me interested until the end although it was pretty clear what was going to happen. Fun watching how the plot unravelled though. Lots of action, car chases, and good acting.

just proves why Canadian movies are wild to watch. Neat concept and typical Canadian acting. Loved it though.

Not that good. There is not much character development, and the action is low budget, with few stunts.

If you're after a night in, watching some brainless action films that won't get you thinking too hard, Banshee is the film for you.

It's not really worth talking about it too much. Others have put it well - This film is like Gone in 60 Seconds meets Saw. Don't expect anything special when someone like Taryn Manning is involved.

I've watched a few films with Manning playing one of the lead rolls and she deserves them. A great performance and the film itsself turns into a bit of a phycological thriller. Thinking at the begining it was going to be a Fast a furious type film.
Good stuff and well worth the watch.

Remember the hot girl from 'Hustle and Flow'? Nah, neither did I, but heres Taryn manning in a reasonably good action/thriller that's part 'Gone in 60 Seconds' and part 'Saw' (without the gore). Disposable and worthy of 'B Movie' status, but lotsa fun. A no brainer, but boy can Manning kick ass (and balls).

Not a bad thriller and Taryn Manning is an okay anti-heroine in this dangerous cat and mouse game.

Very average, I'm sure they could have done this with more class.....
