    Killing Ground is a well-made movie that, at times, is just too plain ugly. It may be mild compared to other “torture porn,” but it still won’t sit very well with everyone who watches it. show more

    Convincing portrayals aside, this conventional story is further bolstered by Power’s sparse approach. Brutal as many scenes may be, the filmmaker imparts a sense of aesthetic restraint, knowing that waiting is often more unnerving than blustering straight ahead. show more

    The film is a blunt, brutally effective survival tale distinguished by the parallel suspense tracks of its non-chronological structure. show more
