Conway, an ex-military man, travels to a remote farm where he finds his old friend Vet, a hardened man of war. He convinces Vet and his disbanded team of mercenaries to go on one last capture mission. The target is the defected Professor Black, a terrifyingly formidable scientific mind. Before the mission, the group form up and plan the operation ahead. Each of them are specialists in their chosen field. BB is a physical powerhouse, Frenik is a veteran bomb expert, Scope is a highly accurate sniper, and MLTDF (Most Likely To Die First) is the messenger of the team. As they reunite, former tensions from a previous operation resurface threaten the mission ahead. Immediately after landing communications are lost. A dangerous encounter with one of their former colleagues leaves them unsettled. As the operation deepens, they suffer gruesome attacks from a hidden adversary. As a bloody massacre ensues, suspicions and doubt plague the team. What was meant to be a simple extraction mission soon becomes a terrifying journey into madness. The chaos that follows leads them to a startling revelation.

Marketing does work. But not in a good way. Like a lot of others I was seduced by the snappy title, after all how bad could it be. I've seen loads of SAS movies but none as bad as this. Fair play if this is deliberately a low budget movie but I feel conned. I have to admit I did laugh at some scenes and stuck it through to the nonsense ending. Sorry cannot recommend at all.

Due to the film's synopsis (the description sounded good to me), I decided to rent it via "Lovefilm by Post".

Firstly, don't take this film too seriously (I learnt this within the first few minutes of watching) as it's obviously been done "tongue-in-cheek" (well...I assume it has!). Even if you do take the light-hearted approach to the film, you may well be tempted to give up on it well before the end, because the whole film (yes, I did watch the entire film!) does have an obvious "college-project/enthusiasts" feel to it. Also, the acting skills are rather basic, as well as the dialogue.

Having said all this, the one positive thing in the film is the appearance of June Bladon, who plays 'Goldie'. That did make things a little more bearable. :-)

So, to sum up, I will give the film one star for it's synopsis plus one star for the appearance of June Bladon. It's definitely a film not worthy of purchasing, and probably not worthy of renting or streaming, either!

This film doesn't take itself too seriously, there is clearly a tongue in cheek nod to Predator. Looking at the film maker's website (Stickmen Pictures) it is clear these guys are film enthusiasts, I guess making a film with no money limits your options!

The only thing that lets this down is selling it as a Hollywood style big drama, looks like they have been railroaded by the big money media guys. I much prefer the "Slaughter Is The Best Medicine" title.

When you watch it with the real context it is quite enjoyable, I've spent £8 on far worse, big budget films!

Well done folks, don't let the haters bring you down!

This film was made by a group of local film makers who have saved up to buy their own equipment, nothing at industry standard whatsoever. Nobody got paid, everyone did this out of their own enthusiasm to make a film. Nobody had gone to drama school or whatever else some of these small minded reviews are suggesting, it's just a group of people who love films who decided to make their own. The original name was SLAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE, the supermarkets won't take a name like that and when you don't have the money of someone like Stephen Spielberg, the only way to get it distributed is by letting these big companies dictate to you what it will be called and how it's going to look. None of the actors wear the get up shown on the front cover which also depicts a war torn village but that is also not a true representation as it is in fact filmed in a woods. So the distributors had to agree to the big companies' ridiculous demands of what it must look like before they agree to sell it, I would say the film makers got screwed out of a fair review. When you know this is a group of local lads from the East Midlands who love films and who just wanted to make their own film with absolutely no money whatsoever, you realise it's actually not a bad film at all.

So yeah be upset that you expected a Hollywood action blockbuster for your £8 or whatever but be upset with the bigwigs for lying to you with their false advertising instead of the filmmakers. Personally I think they got shafted in that if the audience had a realistic idea of what to expect, they would have received much more positive reviews. Watch it again now you know it's made on a zero budget and watch it until the end as it really does have a good ending.

This is a film you have to watch in five minute chunks, I am sure the chaps that made it are proud of their work but the cover and marketing in now way reflects the contents. The filming is damaging to the eye and an offence on the other senses. The plot is thinner than a catwalk model and the actors are far from the expected rugged SAS trouper persona.

The film does deserve a Post Office Stamp, but unfortunately not the prized First Class self stick but moreso the "Withdrawn from Sale"

Advertising Standards should be looking at the way this movie has been marketed, its on supermarket shelves with the other premier releases, has an embossed glossy jacket that promises action, helicopters and suspense but the film delivers little. It may be worth keeping a copy because it is going to become a classic and family favourite and in 10 years time a highly sought after cult movie.
