Having read the other reviews on here, I find myself agreeing with part of most of them. On the whole, I enjoyed the film when I saw it on TV. I felt it was very atmospheric most of the way through, but I do agree that maybe there wasn't enough of a payoff at the end.

I feel that any comments about the German soldiers having English accents are slightly unfair. Ultimately, the choice is between having the film in German, with English subtitles, or just having the actors speak English. To have the actors deliver lines in English but with German accents would be ludicrous, as those of us familiar with the "so bad, it's good" British sitcom, "'Allo 'Allo" will understand. I felt it a brave move to have the soldiers not only speaking English, but speaking with regional accents....after all, Germans have regional accents too.

On the whole, a decent film where the journey is more enjoyable that the destination. Not one to watch more than once though, so catch it on TV or borrow it from a friend.

Have you ever put a puzzle together, only to discover that a couple of pieces are missing in the end? It's a bummer, right? You can still see the puzzle image with a good understanding of exactly what it is depicting, but it's still incomplete, and you're left feeling frustrated. That's basically the way I feel about The Bunker. I know what the film is trying to express, and I even understand the story, but I can't get past the missing pieces that would have made the story much more effective. Maybe I shouldn't have started watching it at 3 AM, but I just didn't feel that The Bunker made complete sense toward the end, as it never really threshes out some of its characters and ideas.

The pieces seemed to be in place for a pretty creepy film. It's 1944, and you've got a ragtag group of German army survivors holed up in an anti-tank bunker, with - presumably - American forces all around them and a mysterious, unfinished tunnel system below. Into this mix you also have some disaffection among the troops and some important questions as to what really happened out in the field just before these guys retreated into the bunker. Trapped between an enemy without and an enemy within, the viewer is basically poised to find out just what or who will get to these desperate soldiers first. The fact that two of these soldiers are an old man with a habit of getting things mixed up and a young teenager eager to prove himself just makes things more interesting. As for those tunnels beneath the bunker, all we know is that they were never finished and that there's something decidedly not good about them. The old man tells the story of how a large number of bubonic plague victims were rounded up, slaughtered, and buried there on what then became cursed ground.

To be honest, initially I couldn't distinguish most characters from each other but I was hoping they would survive.

Obviously the main focus of the movie is its atmospheric and spooky location. It's effective, hence so is the movie although it leaves me without much material to write about.

Two short films are present on the disk, one of which is somewhat creepy while the other is imaginative so the special features are definitely worth checking out.

And so the cross pollination of movie genres continues apace with yet another entry into the war/horror subgenre (as if war in and of itself is not horrific enough) in the shape of the Bunker, a film that mines a similar vein to the likes of R Point or Michael Mann's The Keep.

It is 1944, and the allies have landed at Normandy, with the German army in full retreat. Along the French/Dutch border, a group of seven German soldiers, desperately trying to elude an unseen enemy (the Americans maybe?), happen across a bunker manned by two fellow soldiers, an old man, and a young lad. Taking refuge in the bunker, the tensions of the group and their situation soon begin to take its toll on all concerned as guilt, fear and recriminations abound. On top of all this, the bunker hides a secret, as we are soon informed that the something is lurking in tunnels below the bunker, something not altogether human. That the bunker is built on the sight of a medieval massacre only serves to unsettle things even more. Pretty soon, the enemy outside is forgotten as the enemy within begins to make its presence felt.

A cast of familiar faces (including Charley Boorman, Jack Davenport, Andrew Tiernan and Jason Fleyming as Cpl Baumann, the closest thing to a hero this film has) make a good go of the material, and director Rob Green handles the mounting tension between the soldiers with an initial deft hand, leaving things unseen and unsaid that only serve to build the tension, but unfortunately after such a promising start, the film falls down somewhat in the closing stages, as a combination of madness, duty and loyalty take their toll on the men, and a guilty secret that may well be the real source of all the horror is revealed.

Taglines for movies are often superflous or just plain cheezy - take the otherwise superb film "American Beauty" with its inadequate "look closer". However, with 'The Bunker' the tagline gives you a feel for what the film is really about:
"The Evil Is Within"
Without wishing to give too much away, a platoon of German soldiers in occupied Europe have been ambushed by an American patrol. Under fire, the survivors make it into an isolated German anti-tank bunker deep in the forest. The men are trapped, low on ammunintion, surrounded by the enemy, with a mysterious network of undeground passages beneath them.
However, there is something evil in the bunker - dark secrets of these marked men, veterens of the Poland campaign, and something else, a buried history from a much earlier horror.
Though relatively low budget, the film is well shot, alternating between the dark an dank of the bunker and silent, sun-bleached flash backs to a fateful day in a Polish field years earlier.
Ratings are very individual, but for me this film far exceeded my expectations. It is not a horror movie in the US mould but is far more intelligent than that - the evil is not abstract and 'Other', it is initimate and imminient - the evil lies within - within people, within you an I.
Not a film for people who like the world simple (i.e. Spielberg) and a film better seen 'blind', without expectations, but otherwise I'd say its well worth a look.
