How to review this one?
The story begins with Josef Mengele the "Angel of Death" escaping from a soon to fall Germany. This he does in spectacular fashion and with no assistance from the handful of german soldiers that are accompanying him. First he takes out the 1 Sherman (CGI) tank with a spectacular shot from a Panzerfaust, refuses to board the plane until he has decimated the 10 American soldiers advancing on the air base with nothing more than his trusty Luger Pistol!
Fast forward to present day Antarctica where a couple of Scientists go missing, Dragged off by Gas mask wearing German soldiers no less. Their colleagues, obviously upset set out to find them and in doing so stumble across a cavern deep below the ice populated by Mengele and those useless soldiers that only half heartedly helped him during his 1945 escape from Germany, why keep these around I have no idea?
What follows is the explanation of how Mengele kept these soldiers alive, his plan for the 4th Reich and alot of running, screaming, bad CGI, even worse acting and some very dodgy latex masks that quite frankly wouldn't scare a 3 year old at a Midnight Halloween party in a Graveyard!
Despite all it's flaws this is an entertaining film if only for the WTF moments which are numerous. The atrocious acting especially by the 2 English pilots towards the end, the major surprise half way through all have to be seen to be believed. Peppered throughout are some passable CGI effects and to be honest the story (up to a point) isn't all that bad.
There is some Gore for horror fans, some well done other bits not so good and of course for those that need it there is the obligatory bare boobie shot.
In the end it boils down to this, If you want to have a good laugh, this film delivers them in spades although not for all the right reasons, if you want a serious horror then maybe "outpost" would be a better call

I'll have to take your word for that as to be honest, by the time those 2 turned up I was in such a state of shock and bewilderment that I'm sure many of my senses had shut down in a bid to protect my mind from total collapse, and it's far too early for me to watch any of this masterpiece again without risking serious brain damage

Christopher Karl Johnson is superb. Absolutely brilliant and carried the film.
