4 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well after seeing the much lauded (amongst my weird friends at least!!) 'Men Behind The Sun', I ventured to watch the second in the series of films. The second one was good, I will leave the rest for my review on that. Now, on to this one, the strangely supposed 'third' movie in this series but I find myself wondering if it really is, it has so little in common with the other two.

Firstly this movie is not like the others in that they are seriously disturbing, they try to shock and, mostly the first film succeeds. This movie has some clips right off of the first movie just thrown in randomly and not even to good use either. this film meanders from one thing to another and never really keeps a grip on a solid plot. the plot is spread thinly over many different sub plots and weak, uninteresting characters that I think we are supposed to care about in some way. Most people watching this would only be looking for more liquid nitrogen hands being chipped away or more screaming and experiments but nope, this movie tries to give us plots and it cannot even do that!

It was so slow that, at a few different points in the movie I was distracted by a blank patch of wall opposite me. I think the way the light was hitting the paint was just ... fascinating, relative to the movie that is.

Like another guy here says, this is NOT WORTHY of the Man/Men Behind The sun name. AVOID!
