REVIEWS

David McGlone, Festival Director at the Wexford Film Festival:

'By Any Means' is a gripping movie which keeps you guessing from the first moment to the last. The story is wonderfully layered and engaging, while the lead performances are simply outstanding. In a world that is so obsessed with celebrity culture and in fame being a goal for many, 'By Any Means' really digs deep to reveal the seedier side of that world. It's beautifully paced, directed fantastically and wonderfully told.

Gareth Jamieson, Film Critic at GEM Screen Talk:

It goes without saying that By Any Means will keep you guessing until the very end, as characters' stories and motives shift and change, and its success as a film stands on the ability to build characters that engage and a story that intrigues. Read the full review here.

Maxwell Hubbard, Film Critic at MPH Movies:

It sounds like a familiar premise 'beautiful female kidnapped and held hostage for ransom', but what By Any Means comes with is a little more between the ears. This directorial debut from Leighton Spence offers up a thrilling tale of sinister motives, desperate measures and tainted reputations. But By Any Means doesn't just stop there as it also manages to provide a social commentary on the current celebrity gossip driven culture that we live in and the role that the media plays in this.
