Movies like "Shallow Grave" are exactly what independent filmmaking is all about. It has a smart plot, great acting, colourful set and good choice of music. Danny Boyle achieved all of that on a small budget and proved that you can make an engaging movie without "bells and whistles". Casting was great and young Ewan is awesome!

This is Danny Boyle and Ewan McGregor's first movie together and, although not quite as sharp or as developed as Trainspotting, it's a wild story that I found thoroughly enjoyable and totally creepy.

I'll repeat another's sentiment: unlikeable characters and a weak plot.

Un-likeable characters from the beginning and a dark story that doesn't make much sense.

Three friends live happily together until a very large sum of money comes into play. What ensues is murder, mayhem, dead bodies, shallow graves, and betrayal . Quirky! Totally British. Loved it.

It’s hard to believe that these three could not come up with a better plan from the beginning, or at least be smarter about concealing the body and skipping town. I guess it’s the classic case of too many cooks in the kitchen.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

A darkly comic crime film that ushered in a new wave of British film, as well as an influential team of filmmakers. Released in 1994, this was the first film of director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew MacDonald, and writer John Hodge, who would go on to make "Trainspotting," "A Life Less Ordinary," and "The Beach." All the actors are great, but I especially like Christopher Eccelston. Fans of the Coens will enjoy this. Too bad Boyle won an Oscar and started sucking and Ewan McGregor got lost in "Star Wars." Includes extras.

This was a nice little comedy/film noir/macbre thriller. Three nasty jokers got involved in a crime caper that seemed like a combo of Psycho, Blood Simple, Clockwork Orange, and Double Indemnity. While most critics liked the film (film debut by Ewan McGregor), Roger Ebert thought the three protagonists wanna-be millionaires were too unlikeable for the audience. They were unlikeable for sure, all of them, either without morals or without empathy, but the tension in the last half kept uo my interest.

Violence: Plenty of violence, torture and killing in this film. Definitely not for children.
