With so many horror B-movies with the word ‘dead’ in the title, you could be forgiven for thinking that ‘Dead Mine’ would contain hordes of cheaply-made up flesh-eating ghouls hunting down a cast list of annoyingly-attractive drama students. It doesn’t though. Instead it’s more one of those films where a group of surprisingly unattractive platoon of soldiers encounter a bunker of undead Nazis (with disastrous consequences).

And it’s always Nazis. It seems you can’t tunnel more than two feet below Europe without unearthing a secret World War II experiment of some kind or another. But not here. Dead Mine is completely different. Here we’re in an island off the coast of Japan and there isn’t a single psychotic World War II scientist to be found. They’re Japanese instead. Here, our hapless treasure hunters get trapped in (guess what?) a mine, only to be stalked by what can best be described as Samauri Golum gimps.

It’s like if ‘Decent’ and ‘Outpost’ had a child, then ‘Dead Mine’ would be their offspring. Only it’s not really as good as either. That’s not to say that it’s (that) bad. It’s no classic (not even a cult classic), but, if you’re in the mood, it’s watchable enough.

Performances aren’t anything special. You’ll pretty much guess who’s going to die and in which order from the beginning, as most people’s motives are pretty self explanatory.

There’s not as much gore as you might think, which will annoy some people. The budget obviously didn’t allow for that much in the way of special effects.

The story is as you’d expect and starts off pretty well, however the final act gets a little weird and may leave you wondering what happened.

The formula of soldiers facing something highly unusual has become quite common. And frankly, there's only two things making this any different.

First, while you'd expect a straight-up splatter flick, it manages some unsettling atmosphere and good character writing. I certainly didn't expect to be actually scared by it. Right, it was only scary briefly, but that's beside the point.

And secondly there's not just generic near-human monsters often found in similar films since "The Descent". There's something else too, though thats about all I can tell you without spoilers.

Hmm... "The Descent" didn't have soldiers, "Dog Soldiers" did... those two share a director too... weird...

"Dead Mine" is a modest budget made for TV movie by HBO Asia, about a group who go exploring an old Japanese WWII bunker on an island in Indonesia and get more than they bargained for. It is quite well made but it is not at all scary. Or tense. On the upside, there is not a nazi in sight. Or zombie.
--------spoilers------

The biggest problem for me was that the story feels all over the place. We get "Price", (and his girlfriend) looking for "Yamashita's gold", while the Japanese scientist on the trip reveals she is there to investigate (the real) unit 371. The mine in the jungle, which has been abandoned "for decades" has a nice door with a path leading up to it and seems pretty well lit with ambient light somehow. There's a very old Japanese soldier down there, who seems to be playing the part of "Basil exposition" in the main.

A large group of invincible samurai warriors who have been waiting underground then show up, who can dive in all their gear. (What have this lot been eating for the last 70 years?). We never find out what happens to half the party. No that I really cared.

The directors have obviously watched a few other films, not least "Outpost", but there is also the mine escape scene from "broken arrow" and subterranean crawlers (see "the descent").

It isn't terrible, but there is no sense of tension from being in the tunnels or bunker. If you're looking for a bit of bunker action, then I'd suggest "outpost" or "Frankenstein's army" as alternatives to this one.

A group of explorers enter a cave on an Indonesian island that was once home to a special Japanese bunker. The members of the group have their own reasons for going on the trip, ones that they don't share immediately. As it happens pirates with entrance sealing grenades are also on the island. Out explorers venture into the cave in order to find a way out. They realize this was not an ordinary bunker and one that is still occupied.

If we changed the setting, and made the Japanese into Nazis, then we would have seen this film a half dozen times before. The plot was well put together. There was good diversity within the group, but the characters came off boring. The setting was drab and military gray by design, which made it unexciting.

It is worthy of a rental. Won't be in my collection until it is on some multi-pack.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

If you were feeling uncharitable, you could easily write this off as a mash-up of Outpost [2008] [DVD], The Bunker [DVD] [2002]and The Descent [DVD] [2005], and overall there's very little in Dead Mine that you won't find in those movies. However good characters and solid direction keep things moving along briskly and it's always entertaining. If this is your kind of popcorn movie, then you'll enjoy this.
