Didn't think much of this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outpost  [DVD] (DVD)
This film- while some people might like it- didn't do anything for me. I thought it would maybe be like Dead Snow which I thought was OK or Dog Soldiers which I really liked.
What happened was a bunch of soldiers find an abandoned Nazi/SS base where they were making super soldiers and then get stuck there because the super soldiers are hunting them. Not much happens for most of the film, there's soldiers stuck in a small underground base with maybe 5 rooms to see trying to figure out what this place is, who's attacking them and what's wrong with the one almost dead survivor they found.
It was good that the group were all from different countries and backgrounds, some were older and more hardened to war etc when they got attacked. This didn't really help relate to the characters, or make them distinguishable in any way, when they were talking I found it hard to remember who was who because they didn't draw you in to remember the characters names, so it didn't really matter when they die, just another one down.
*SPOILER* It's one of those films where everyone dies at the end. I'm not a big fan of those, in some films it's effective e.g. Eden Lake- but here it's just a disappointing end to a disappointing film.
I didn't like this film, so I've only given it 1* it was hard to find any redeeming qualities except the gore and monster make up was quite realistic.
