During a battle between Capitol and Bauhaus, the great seal is broken and The Machine works again transforming soldiers and civilians into hordes of mutants. A small part of the population escapes to Mars, leaving millions of people behind. The man of faith and leader of an ancient brotherhood, Brother Samuel, is a believer in God and the Chronicles, a bible about the mutants from ancient times.

It is what it is.
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fans of Sci-Fi have had to withstand much worse offerings than this movie. I was entertained and the movie kept my attention. I had, originally, just started it as "background noise", but had to rewind it because it began to draw my attention. I watched the making of and, considering the the budget they had to work with, the fact that they used models and matte instead of CGI, the special effects could have been a lot worse. I felt the acting was believable and I didn't see any obvious holes in the plot. I'd watch it again and would recommend it to a fan of Sci-Fi.

I've never understood the indignation of some of the posters on these boards. The movie wasn't over-hyped and is, honestly, quite enjoyable.

I think the cast,crew, and special effects teams all deserve a thumbs up.

Just my humble opinion.
