Mutant Chronicles is a sci-fi/steampunk/war B movie. An Ancient machine that creates world destroying mutants lies buried beneath a seal which was set there hundreds of years ago,the legend of which is protected by a monastic order who hold the book that tells of the dark times when the machine was originally stopped. Fast forward to the year 2707 and corporate war is ravaging the earth. During an artilery barrage the forgotten seal is broken and the machine is working again sending out mutants to kill and bring back humans to make more mutants. The keepers of the seals knowledge set out with a group of harderned soldiers to once and for all destroy the machine.

The films setting has a definate steampunk feel with many of the early battle scenes having a the feel of WWI trench warfare. The weapons and flying vehicles in the film are steam powered. Most of the special effects are CGI driven but considering this title is a low budget B movie they work really well.

The Visual quality on Blu-Ray is very good. Occasionally you get a slight grainy feel but the whole setting for the movie is dark and steam filled so this is a by product of the setting and not a bad transfer. The Audio is HD DTS multichannel and is very good quality my small gripe would be that the sudden changes for whispered talk to artillery bombardment can have you grabbing for the remote to change adjust the sound level so i eventually used the autolevel feature on my blu ray player to help with this issue.

Extras on the disc are sparce but thats not unusual for a B movie release like this. There is a 25 minute making of with interviews with all the main cast which include Ron Pearlman

My friend & I were having a debate the other day about Terminator Salvation, Quantum of Solace & Aliens Vs Predator 2 - Requiem. He was saying they were good films, and I said they were rubbish. We agreed in the end that within their respective franchises (Terminator, Bond & Alien), they were rubbish, but they would make decent B-movies in their own right.

Wrong!

A decent B-movie which has a well thought-out plot, believable effects & good acting is better, in unfathomable ways, than an rubbish A-Movie.

This DVD is very much a case in point - the cover (with it's inaccurate '23rd Century' slogan for a film set in 2707) doesn't inspire viewing & it seems run-of-the-mill B-movie trash, with gawdy special effects, bad acting & a rubbish plot.

However, the plot is interesting & the action is better than Terminator Salvation's was. There is also decent lighting (unlike AVP 2), and the plot is not pretentiously intricate where if you miss a minute, you lose stg vital (like Quantum of Solace).

The acting is also better than, say, most of the Star Wars prequels & the direction & effects do actually convince you that such a World is just-about plausible.

I had heard a lot about this movie and was surprised when it did not have a cinema release. Despite the great influx of horror movies, there has never been one that truly captures the "Mutant" genera since the 1990's. Set in the distant future, WW3 has broken out between the four major corporations that now run Earth. The movie sees an ancient alien machine reactivated after many years to bring untold suffering to mankind in the form of mutants. An unlikely band of humans from all the represented corporations lead by a monk are brought together to fulfil a task set years ago to destroy the machine. The plot is sound and has a good premise in relation to its budget. The budget is also an issue when it comes to quality of visual, some scenes seem more realistic than others and it is very difficult to become involved in the dialogue between characters which is incredibly 2D at times.

However, I must say that it is well worth watching, the special effects are quite something and the general gore and war scenes are enough to keep the die hard fans of the genera interested...for a while. Worth it? Probably, but I would wait to find it in a bargain basket or at a lower price!

The Mutant Chronicles more than exceeded my expectations.

At heart this is a rattling good futuristic war story, but with a well imaged First World War/steampunk look and feel. The attention to detail in the hardware is exceptional - from massive coal-powered war engines to hand-weapons firing steam-powered projectiles. When our heroes embark on their mission, we get some terrific underground action, set against a truly hellish background of blood, rust and vast machines (dark satanic mills?). Superb 5.1 surround sound - amongst the best I've heard. Oh and there's a decent cast too - Sean Pertwee is as stoic as ever, Devon Aoki looks and acts like a real-life animé heroine and everyone's favourite Neanderthal Ron Perlman makes the perfect warrior monk! Occasionally the dialogue is slightly corny and wince-making, but there are some great one-liners too ("any last words? - STFU!") Interviews, making of and behind-the-scenes documentaries complete the package.

Some movie spin-offs from games have been pretty dire (Doom anyone?) but The Mutant Chronicles is a very worthy effort. Clearly not Oscar material, but well worth a place in any sci-fi/action fan's movie collection.
