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
Considering the overall reputation of SyFy's movies, I was anticipating little. But I was at least a little bit of watchability. But I didn't get even that. There is no guilty pleasure here and next to nothing to recommend it. The effects are not the worst I've seen from SyFy, but they are still poor, while the camera work is haphazard and has a very cheap stock quality to it. The music is generic and sluggish in tempo, the direction is lazy, the story is very predictable and has no tension or such whatsoever, there are no likable characters and the acting consists of bored looking actors who give no passion to their lines and just don't want to be there. The worst assets are the script and the pacing. The script is very stilted and is much too talky, also having jargon that sounds as though even the writers didn't know what they were talking about. The pacing is very laborious and has no momentum, considering how everything else was poorly done SS Doomtrooper was a really dull movie. As ever, SyFy give the impression that they don't do their research, the science is enough to raise a lot of eyebrows even from those whose knowledge is rudimentary. All in all, a dull and poorly done film in all areas. 1/10 Bethany Cox
