It is not a spoiler to say that this isn't a Cloverfield movie, either.
It's June 1944, and the allied invasion of Nazi occupied Europe is on. The airborne troops are about to make their drops. One unit in particular has a vital mission to destroy a Nazi installation. An awful lot is depending on them.
The scattered troops, including rookie soldier Boyce and Grizzled combat veteran Ford soon discover there's more to the installation than meets the eye, and horrible experiments that might give the Nazis the edge they need. The fate of the world is in the balance...
You won't get complete historical accuracy out of this, but what you do get is a thoroughly involving and watchable bit of escapism. All the cast pitch their performances just right for the material. It earns an eighteen certificate with realistic violent action and some gory moments, from humans and others. The lead characters are well drawn and you can relate to them. And the villains are just as nasty as you would want them to be for this sort of thing.
It possibly does do a little more of the war side than the horror side, but even so, fans of the latter genre probably won't be disappointed. Good, strong, and very watchable escapism, this is a very entertaining film indeed.
The dvd has the following language and subtitle options:
Languages: English. French. Italian. It's also English audio captioned.
Subtitles: English. Danish. Dutch. Finnish, French. Italian. Norwegian. Swedish.
It begins with several trailers, which can be skipped via the next button on the dvd remote.
The Horrors of War. Two featurettes combine to form this look at the film. They are called Creation, and Death no more.
They can be watched individually or in a row. Both run roughly ten minutes. The first is an overview of the project and the production. The second of some of the monsters of the story and how they were created. Both are a little longer than this kind of thing usually is, and both are pretty good watches.
Different genre on the typical zombie flick , super strong thinking talking zombie certainly makes a change from slow stumbling one's. Definitely worth a second film along the lines of being in the present day and the discovery of the original source of the virus being dug up from the church dungeons.
Incredibly bloody and violent, if that's what you like this is your movie. But if you are expecting an exciting tale of D-Day and soldiers bravery, forget it! One for extreme horror fans only.
Story line may be a little predictable but well worth a look
