As WWII is winding down, the Nazi's have developed the uber weapon, a super soldier, a blueish pink version of the Incredible Hulk. A team of Allied soldiers, including a snooty Frenchman, "Brooklyn" (with the heaviest of fake accents) among others is sent behind enemy lines to destroy this secret Nazi weapon. Written by
When the tank fires on the Doomtrooper it creates no muzzle blast, which would have at least injured the entire unit in front of the tank. The explosion, when the tank round hits, is ridiculously small. A 75mm shell from a Panther (as the tank was supposed to be) would have killed or injured everyone in the street and collapsed some of the building. See more »
An unoriginal idea, horribly fake accents, stereotypes...
As a big fan of the video game Return to Castle Wolfenstein, I found it natural to want to check this movie out. I didn't expect much considering that it was a Sci Fi Original movie (which are never that good) and the video game itself was very, very cheesy (in the best and funnest way possible :D ). But this movie...It was too much.
In the beginning we see the "mad scientist" Professor Ullman (Ben Cross) as he transforms a human into a super soldier using atom radiation technology. The result was a huge creature with blue skin, enormous muscles, and the ability to regenerate health after losing some. I found it hilarious especially since the lab's walls (which were stone) were so fake that it nearly brought tears to my eye.
The scene changes to Captain Malloy played by Corin Nemec who is given an top secret mission to destroy the lab where the soldiers are being created at. He then assembles a team of "misfits" including the stereotypical British soldier Sergeant Digger, soldiers with terrible accents and bad acting, and some French resistance members that they had found along the way.
I found myself laughing too often during the film as I compared the RTCW and the movie. The movie was also horribly inaccurate history-wise, but you can't expect much from a movie with God-forsaken bad special effects (a bad attempt of "Band of Brothers" style) and a Incredible Hulk like creature with an insane weapon.
Fans of the game will get a good laugh out of this and anyone else probably will too.
