2.0 out of 5 stars Scary but disapointing, 8 Oct. 2012
I will give this movie 2 stars, because its scary and creepy, as one would expect, and the acting is fine.

But it could have been much scarier, and the story is really nothing new and is done much better in other movies in the same category as fx. the movie series "Wrong turn". Buy those instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars An acceptable and entertaining movie, 4 Oct. 2012
While the first and second movies in this sequel were quite focused on the cooling down of the revieved soldiers, this third movie just focus on the fighting.

Its not a fantastic movie, but you are entertained, and even though this movie hasn't much story or anything it seems to work quite well with just the fighting. The whole movie is mostly in a dark environment, so there might not be the great need for buying it on blue ray. But watch the movie, and then pass it on to your friends.

1.0 out of 5 stars You can skip this one if you want to, 4 Oct. 2012
While I like the first "Universal Soldier" as a good average movie, this second movie in the sequel is quite bad.

If you like the first movie, you may like the third one as well, but don't bother buying the second one. You won't miss anything by skipping this second movie. The plot and the acting is quite bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Descent movie for the money, 4 Oct. 2012
Allthough the price for this blue ray version is quite decent, i would just buy the triple pack on dvd.

This first movie in the "Universal Soldier" movie series is probably the best one of the first three. But buy this for the action, not for the picture quality. Not that the quality is bad, its just not the kind of movie that gain much by better picture quality in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good price for all three of them, 4 Oct. 2012
Allthough the "Universal soldier" movies has never been among the greatest in the history, they are still quite entertaining.

I liked the first one most, the second one was not good and the third one somewhere in between. While the first and second ones focus a lot on how to revive the dead soldiers and keep them cooled down so they will not overheat, the third movie skip most of that and just focus on the fighting. Even the story don't get much time. But somehow it works and the fighting is fine enough.

All in all, a very good price for the three movies. See them all once and and pass the box on to your friends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard movie to evaluate, 1 Oct. 2012
Having seen this film in the cinema on the big screen, i would say that its a hard movie to evaluate.

It has nice effects, some creepy scenes and some exiting moments. You dont fall asleep. But most of the time the characters behaves rediculous. Some of the characters are saved by good acting, but as a whole the movie is bad directed and is incoherent.

Having seen all Alien, Predator and Alien versus Predator movies, having seen Predators, and read most of the books and comics about Aliens and Predator where the movies stops, I believe I've got a fair overall picture of the whole Alien "universe". But still this movie seem out of place and doesn't explain what we see in Alien. This can be saved though by a second prequel, so i very much hope we will see that one soon.

Possible spoiler:
But all that said, suddenly the "engineers" comes, with their special genes that can turn both good or evil. Good on earth, evil in the vases in the pyramid. The movie starts with an engineer that sacrifice himselves to dissolve into pure genematerial that would jumpstart life on Earth. But why sacrifice himselves, when he could just throw a sample? And why does some genematerial in a river starts humanity? Thats not the normal behaviour of genematerial. And is the engineer left there by the others, or has he acted on his own and then remotecontrolled his spaceship to fly back where he came from? Is this a sign of Jesus sacrificing himselves for humanity; But he has just arrived in the spaceship, and not walked the Earth with humanity and nobody saw him, so how could anybody know his sacrifice? And who has made the paintings in the caves and how could simple paintings point to an exact place many many lightyears away? How did the Prometheus spaceship find the exact planet, and land on the excat spot on the planet just in front of the pyramid. Why did the biologist and geologist act completely unprofessional, and why didn't anybody take a lot of weapons with them. Why did we see the whole pyramid get mapped by the mavelous flying mapping balls and then use all this information for nearly nothing. And finally, what has happend to all the engineers. We havent seen them since the first Alien movie. Mysteries in movies are very welcome, but many of these just seem plain rediculous. But I might give this movie more stars if Ridley Scott comes of with some explanations in the second prequel. They should be evaluated together i suppose, to give the most fair picture of both prequels.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best in the genre, 30 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Deathwatch [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
This is potentially a great story, and most of the acting is fine, but the directing seems bad and you don't really feel the horror in this film. Mostly you get irritated by the many bad decisions the characters make, and by why they are so slow to understand the real danger.

If you like this genre, i would recommend Outpost instead of Deathwatch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, but YES you WILL be dissapointed, 30 Sept. 2012
I like science fiction, but i cannot recommend this one.

First the good parts: It's a good story and i actually also like the end. But the acting and directing is bad, the CGI graphic variate to much between very nice and awfull, and the story is paced to fast, so you don't really get it under your skin.

Its actually sad, because the story seems so promising. If the book is out, i will buy that instead.

Spoiler: If you wanna get most out of the movie, follow the "genes", not the wars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Funny zombies, 17 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Dance Of The Dead [DVD] (DVD)
A local nuclear plan send out some poisonous green steam that turned all dead alive. A bunch of high school kids tries to save themselves, the prom night at the local school and thereby the whole city from horde of zombies. Will they succeed or will the zombies spread and take over?

The genre is a funny zombie movie, and it has several fun moments indeed. Though I like serious zombie movies better, this one is okay. Zombiemovies comes in two categories: with slow zombies or fast zombies. These ones are indeed fast, almost running. In return they are easy to kill.

If you liked this movie, you might also like "Zombieland" and the series "The walking dead".

2.0 out of 5 stars Strange but entertaining, 17 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Botched [DVD] (DVD)
This movie is about a thief who's last job failed by some unlucky circumstances. This should have been his last job, and should have payed of his last dent to a local mafiaboss. So he gets yet another chance/job, getting a golden russian cross from a russian skyscraper.

The movie is something completely different from what you might expect, it's entertaining and it's bloody like a zombie movie without beeing it. It has many funny moments that makes this a rare form for comedy horror or something like that.

It's not a keeper, but it's entertaining enough to watch once, and it's something different from the many mainstream movies.
