Storyline

A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves. Written by Dismal Angel

A gutsy good monster flick!
10 July 2006 | by (Brentwood, USA) – See all my reviews

Exciting and thoroughly well-made werewolf film from Scotland delivers the goods to both horror and action fans!

A band of soldiers go into the Scotland country for a training exercise and instead find themselves struggling to survive against a horde of werewolves!

Writer/director Neil Marshall does a knock-out job with creating a solid werewolf film that packs on plenty of quick suspense and steely action. Marshall's story is always gripping, building to an explosive climax. He's obviously a genre fan as he references a number of old-school horror films in the process, even naming one character after B movie hero Bruce Campbell. The direction is right on too with plenty of atmospheric spookiness, as well as a feeling of complete claustrophobia even in the sprawling woods! The special FX come off pretty good and provides for more than a few gory scenes.

The cast isn't half bad, hero Kevin McKidd (dearly departed Tommy from Trainspotting) and Sargent Sean Pertwee being the best.

This film may have flown under the horror radar back in 2002, but genre fans should discover just how good this film is. Dog Soldiers is a movie that lets us know that the monster flick is not dead!

*** out of ****
