  • A sweetly maudlin directorial debut from James Rouse, it features winning turns from Richard Lumsden (as team leader Gordon), Karl Theobald (as best buddy about to drop a bombshell Keith) and Ned Dennehy (as drunken spice Julian).

  • Torben Betts' screenplay for this engaging, quintessentially British road/rambling movie combines knockabout comedy with surprisingly bleak observations about the way the men's lives have all veered off course.

  • A grey, farty plod, with increasingly little to sustain it bar the scenery.

  • Downhill is a home-grown treat, and the perfect solution to anyone seeking an alternative to the preponderance of overblown blockbusters on screens big and small.

    Jun 10, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The transition from comedy to gently revelatory drama is nicely handled in James Rouse's engaging low-budget film.

  • It's extremely rare for a low-budget mock-documentary to come together as well as this scruffy little British comedy.
