Reviews [click links to read more]:

“There are plenty of killings, which, if done right might have made The Boonies a bit more interesting. But they’re shot with no flair and there’s no suspense […] If ninety minutes of things you’ve seen a hundred times before hung on a plot that consists of coincidences and improbabilities is what you’re looking for, The Boonies is your film.” Voices from the Balcony
