Landmine Goes Click is a psychological thriller/action movie that will leave you disturbed for some time to come after you’ve seen it. But that’s not to say that what’s on display here is bad, rather, this will stay with you for a long time, for all the right reasons.

Just be warned; you may need to have a strong stomach prior to viewing!

The Plot Line

The story follows Daniel & Alicia, a couple who are engaged, and they decide to spend their last few days of freedom prior to their marriage relaxing. Now, while your idea of relaxing might be in the spa, or having a flutter in the Casino Online (for example, in the Apnet – Casino), their idea of a good time is to go hiking. And it is Georgia (the country, not the state) where they choose as the place for their hike, taking their friend, Chris, along for the ride.

While in the mountains of Georgia, Chris manages to step on a landmine. He suddenly freezes on the spot, because stepping off means that the landmine most likely will explode. The threesome is literally miles and miles away from any help, which perfectly sets the scene for the rest of the movie.

Ramping up the Tension

Daniel decides that it is best if he goes in search of help, leaving both Alicia and Chris behind, with the promise of returning with assistance. In his absence, Alicia makes the decision to attempt to create a trench of sorts, for Chris to jump off onto, but she quickly tires. Along comes a local named Ilyia, who offers help. However, Ilyia has a price for offering that help.

After Ilyia’s “help” scene plays out, we fast forward in time several years. Here we see Ilyia as a family man, with a wife and daughter, living a regular family life. However, when he receives a house call from a friendly American stranger, his life is forever changed.

In the interest of remaining spoiler free, I will say no more about the events that happen next. Just rest assured that there are many twists in the tale!

Is it worth the watch?

Simply put, the answer is yes. At 1 hour and 50 minutes in length, this is no short movie, but it is the kind of one that you will not find flying by. All of the actors manage to play their parts perfectly, with actor Kote Tolordava deserving special mention for his depiction of the despicable Ilyia.

This movie absolutely drips with tension and menace throughout, and is a true display of what humans are capable of, when presented with certain situations. And it manages all of this without the display of excess gore that some would expect from this style of movie.

From the locations and the actors to the general plot and tone, this movie will leave you astounded, and in the end, absolutely spent. This one can’t come highly recommended enough.
