Review

A regular, low-key thriller without the excessive and silly plot-twists but also without the most interesting of premises. There aren't many questions raised here that haven't been both raised and answered times before, but with that said, Best Laid Plans is a thoroughly conducted, fairly well-played and relatively suspenseful film. The direction by Mike Barker is almost invisible - it would've profited from more colour and imagination.
