MHM: Mediocre Horror Movie
14 October 2011 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Four high-school losers—crack addict Zoe (Victoria Nestorowicz), wimp Buddy (Steve Arbuckle), rebel Waylon (Mac Fyfe) and runaway Carrie (Erin Mackinnon)—hope to turn their lives around by enlisting in the army, but wind up as guinea pigs in the Havoc project, a top-secret experiment designed to turn recruitment rejects into unstoppable super-soldiers. After receiving the treatment—delivered via a massive great needle rammed into the spine—they realise that something is seriously wrong and attempt to escape from the secure military base where they are being held; in doing so, they accidentally release an earlier test subject—war hero Sgt. Dodds—who has been turned into a bloodthirsty killer fuelled by rage and is out to even the score with those responsible for his miserable state.

UKM: Ultimate Killing Machine is a case of nice try, but no cigar. The basic plot has oodles of exploitative potential, but the film doesn't go anywhere near to living up to its awesome sounding title. First off, the character of failed test subject Dodds is a real let-down: my idea of an scientifically engineered 'ultimate killing machine' would preferably involve machine guns in the arms, laser eyes, and razor wire skin; clearly the budget couldn't stretch to that, but it would have been nice to have seen a little more effort to make this botched experiment more memorable than he was—barring a few facial scars, Dodds looks exactly like he did before the procedure.

Another plot element that seriously under-delivers is the unexpected side-effect of the treatment, a raging libido that gets stronger the more the patient gets agitated. With the characters getting progressively randier (and in the case of the girls, more attractive), one might reasonably expect at least one gratuitous sex scene, but every time a guy and gal show any sign of getting down to business, something occurs to cut the scene short. Dodds gets as far as stripping a sexy scientist down to her army regulation purple silk stockings, suspender belt and bra, but he accidentally breaks her neck before he can give her any serious attention. What a swizz!

Worse still is Michael Madsen's woeful performance as nasty Major Blevins, who oversees the Havoc project. Clearly going through the motions just to pay the bills, Madsen puts about as much effort into his acting as I have into ensuring that this reviw is free of speling mistaks. In the end, what narrowly prevents UKM: Ultimate Killing Machine from being a total waste of time is the occasional spot of decent splatter, which includes a cool decapitation, a squishy scene in which a soldier has his face torn off, and some poor soul being cut into a pile of bloody chunks. When all else fails, at least old-school gore can be relied upon to put some pep into proceedings.
