Any good?


Can a real person let me know if this is actually any good please? Out of the 6 reviews, 5 are from people that have only reviewed this film and all give it massive praise. In short, I don't trust them.

Not no, not he11 no, but OH HE11 NO! The plot is transparent, the dialog is sophomoric, and the "tactical advisors", while they might kick ass at 'Left4Dead', probably couldn't beat a handful of Brownies at paintball.

And as for the sixth reviewer, who didn't register just to write a glowing review of this steaming heap, well, I think he/she/it could find hours of action packed entertainment watching paint dry.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Why do the film makers and their friends and family insist on writing reviews bigging up these movies? I'd much prefer it if they were honest and just said, "look, we were on a budget, it's not that good but please check out our hard work". Not make out it's the best film of the year.

Anyway, thanks for the reply, I think I'll skip this one.

It's not AS bad as the other responder makes it out to be.
For a home-made quality B movie, it's not HORRIBLE. I gave it a 5.. I've definitely seen "hollywood" movies that are a lot worse(acting, choreography, etc).

The "tactical team" in the movie definitely couldn't exist as one in the real world xD They'd be about the worst "soldiers" ever lol. However, for such a low budget, it could have been worse(definitely on par or even superior to a lot of sci-fi channel type movies).

I'd say definitely not something to put at the top of your list, but if you feel like you've seen everything n just craving something to watch, it's something you could kick back to on a rainy day and let capture a small percentage of your attention.

Note: I'm just a little over 3/4 of the way through it and haven't even seen the end yet ^^

Thanks. Think I'll be giving this one a miss then. I'm not that desperate for something to watch right now and this sounds like something I'd turn off after 20 minutes.

Well that's why I asked in the first place. I love IMDB but the fake voting and reviewing pisses me off.

I tried to watch it last night. It is really awful. I am not very fussy when it comes to a bit of entertainment and don't mind when the acting in an action movie is fairly poor and am willing to suspend disbelief for the sake of spectacle.

I have only seen one other film quite as bad as this so far as acting goes (some cheap British zombie movie), and honestly don't know how people can really do that bad a job and look at themselves in the mirror day after day for the rest of their lives.

Bypass this one. Watch almost anything else!

Thanks for the honesty guys. I was about to watch this and waste my time.

Well we know this is a movie made on a shoe string budget but the director who also stars as the main commando makes the worst sin possible......he cuts away from the action scenes.....just as you you are expecting to see some action.....instead you get cut to a totally different scene or you just hear noises in the background.
Worst of all is the Commmando and Commando girls final show down with the "beast"......the whole movie was built on this moment but the director/actor sees fit not to show the show down on film.....instead leaving the viewer to imagine what happens.....if I wanted to "imagine" the scene........I would have read a book!

2/10!

I don't know why there are so many bad comments about this movie. It isn't brilliant but it isn't bad either. I quite enjoyed it. I watch a lot of B'movies, and this by far is one of the exceptions to the 'B' for baaaad rule. Beats the usual syfy fodder anyway. Give it a go, you may be pleasantly surprised.

there are so many bad comments because it is that bad.
the old man. a US Army Ranger. two tours of duty in Vietnam. and he screams like a little girl for someone to untie him.
now, dont you think, at some point in his training ,they would have taught him to whisper?
the female sniper. sniveling like a little girl. she can handle a rifle that is bigger then she is, but cracks under the stress of combat? and, as much as i enjoyed the cleavage, I doubt female snipers bounce their boobies while running through the woods. they probably wear sports bras. and, she nails the monster with shot after shot and he keeps coming. do they retreat? do they go get a tank? or at least a LAWS? no, she just sits there and tries to figure out why it wont die. then, later, she beats it with a pipe and shoots it with her hand gun. she doesn't even shoot it in the testicles. ever woman i know goes for the testicles. is hitting a man with a pipe that did not die after multiple rifle shots part of Army training?
when they first entered the woods, every time the team started moving again, one of the guys would tap her to let her know they were moving.
is she really that helpless? I would think getting to your shooting position and moving with a team are taught at sniper school.now, i realize sometimes a team member might be concentrating on something and need to be tapped, but every time you stop?
