OK, it was a quite night on the satellite, so with my lack of attention span, i surfed past the Sci-fi channel.
The start was rocky, it had obvious made-for-TV movie production values, and the acting and combat was sub x-files to say the least, however, the actual concept wasn't bad, and there were some technical accuracy you don't get in most action films.
Grieco really needs to be told to speak clearly, i mean, the Guttural Whisper thing is a tad tacky and gets boring after hearing him mumble his way through a sentence, and this film won't be winning him any Oscars, but overall, he fit into the big hero-shaped hole in the film.
It felt very much like someone had been playing Doom recently, the plot stank of the current occult-terror video games out these days, but as a whole, the Plot hung together, but there was a hell of a lot the directors didn't take advantage of and could have done so much more with. effects ranged from the bland to the quite nice, but the inconsistency didn't help matters.
Worth a watch, just for a one-off, shame it wasn't made into a series, after a false start it could have been polished up a bit.
