An interesting experiment. Good job its short though.
2 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a short, written and directed by Neil 'Dog Soldiers' Marshall. It appears on the Region2 DVD of Dog soldiers. It's an almost experimental look at relationships.

The entire thing (can you call 8minutes a film?) is played without Dialogue, instead the only sounds you hear are those of War.

The piece (Thats what I'll call it) starts with a group of lads on a bus to a pub. Its shot and Sounded to be extremely reminiscent of Saving Private Ryan's Landing Craft sequence, and this theme continues as the men hit the ground and run into the pub. then there are the strafing run ogles at women, the one-shot one-kill glances and the guided missile charisma. the only times of almost silence are Les SImpson getting his heart broken.

This is a Very Good idea, done with startling effect. However, I wouldn't want to watch more than 8 minutes of it.
