FROM THE PRODUCER OF 'WOLF CREEK' Deep beneath the sands of the remote Australian outback lies 'Pine Gap', a top secret research facility established by the US and Australian Governments. When all contact is lost with the military compound, a heavily armoured special forces unit is sent in to find out what has happened. As their search takes them deeper into the bowels of the labyrinthine facility, they soon discover that something terrible has escaped. Under attack and with their numbers dwindling, the remaining soldiers must fight their way out through a steel maze that crawls with unimaginable terrors. In the darkness, when the bullets run dry, all that's left is to pray for a quick death…

*PLOT*
A team of navy seals are sent into a facility (Known as Australias area 51) to exterminate a bunch of escaped criminals (or so they think) upon arriving at the facility, they discover that there is more to this place than meets the eye. A game of cat and mouse through the building vents and tunnels then ensues.

I was really looking forward to this one and got to see it last night. The first 20 minutes were really promising and set up the rest of film quite nicely. The problem was, the rest of the film took a totally different direction and got itself in a huge muddle.

Crawlspace isn't a bad film by any means but had it have taken the route that the first 20 minutes set up, it could have been so much better. Instead we are treated to a series of flat and unimaginative plot twists, which at times do tend to make the film drag.

There is plenty of action and a fair amount of gore at least and the film looks and sounds really good, the effects are nicely done and the acting for the most part is decent enough.

*slight spoiler coming up*

I think the biggest disappointment for me was that after viewing the trailer and then the first 20 minutes, we see the team chased through the facilities vents by a large, deranged, mutant gorilla type creature, which looked really cool. But then you expect this to be the basis of the movie and unfortunately, that's the last we see of the creature since the film takes a more "Scanners" type of route.

If you are into sci-fi movies and you enjoyed films like Aliens and Scanners for example, then there are elements here you will no doubt enjoy.

A team of elite commandos are sent into a top secret military base with instructions to rescue the scientists who are apparently under attack from escaped prisoners. What they find is something very strange and different...

Australia has produced some high quality horror in recent times, this sadly - in spite of some sterling efforts - isn't one of them.

Justin Dix's (director/co-producer/co-writer) film is guilty of lifting from a whole bunch of other sci-fi/horror films to the point where the smart ideas in the narrative are practically squashed. Everything from Aliens and Scanners to Event Horizon are greased in to maintain a viable interest factor, a shame because the low budget is never an issue as the debut director shows a keen eye for atmosphere setting.

The facility that the characters find themselves in, as they fight for survival, is splendidly awash with a futuristic metallic sheen. While claustrophobia, as the title suggests, is one of the key character's of the piece. Acting is fine, no ham or cheese here, and in spite of the leanings from elsewhere, pic is never dull. It's not one for genre fans to base their evening in by the fire with, but it's just above average and shows Dix to have some potential behind the camera. 6/10

I won't go into to much detail but basically a armed squad are sent to pine gap research facillity which is a secret base created by the australian & u.s governments in 1966.All contact with the facillity was lost fifteen hours earlier and the squad have orders to kill the research subjects on sight and find out what's gone wrong.Theres one problem when the squad get inside they come across eve who is one of the subjects they should kill but it turns out she's the squad leaders ex wife.The film starts out great for the first thirty minutes or so but the middle tends to drag quite a bit,however if you stick with it it picks up towards the end with some good plot twists.

Worth watching. OK it might not be to everyone's taste, but it was to mine. Some of the CGI was iffy, but I am prepared to let that go considering the size of the budget (small). Having watched the 'making of' featurette, the attention to detail with the sets is good especially the set dressing/redressing. The cinematography is very good and the lighting of the 'crawlspaces' is believeable (thank goodness for modern cameras). Overall the acting was generally fine but the lead male lacked sufficient emotion at times ... maybe the 'military mindset' could have weakend a bit more than it did (considering what he believed at the time).

One minus point is the lack of subtitles, for me that wasn't a problem as overall the diction was good.
One plus point was the inclusion of the 'making of' featurette, many films with much bigger budgets fail to provide this on the dvd.
Good picture and sound quality

***Spoiler*** I am glad they went with the gorilla (which was very well done) and not the tentacled monster.
