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
An incomprehensible mess that attempts both a WW2 battle story and a sci-fi creature story. It achieves neither.
Weird science performed by a loony Nazi scientist (an embarrassed Ben Cross) turns a WW2 Nazi soldier into Hulk's blue cheap-fx cousin. His veins are neon, his face contorted. He growls and grunts a lot. He croaks everybody he sees: French Resistance, Americans, British, Nazis, lousy actors, mad scientists, bad scriptwriters, SCI-FI channel fans, and anybody else he can find. Soldiers futilely shoot the thing until it kills them. One idiot punches the creature after seeing how invincible it is.
The CGI technology used to animate the creature is about equal to the 1970's "Ping Pong" video game. The battle scene choreography looks like "Saving Private Ryan" meets "Saved by the Bell." The acting is atrocious, the script disjointed and aimless.
WW2 action and sci-fi fail to blend in this story, and both elements suffer. So does the audience.
