Waylon and Buddy decide to join the army as it appears to be their best option. But when they realize that they are part of a group that have been thrown into a medical experiment facility with a doctor who plans on turning them into ultimate killing machines, they must fight to destroy his other creations and save themselves.

I got sucked into this because of Michael Madsen, who is working hard to get to his 200th film appearance. He may have well over a dozen appearances this year alone. This was not one of his best, but it was certainly in character and an easy paycheck.
The Army is having problems finding soldiers. Instead of getting out of Iraq, they turn to scientists to develop the Ultimate Fighting Machine. Holy Universal Soldier Batman! Nothing original here.
They experiment with a real war hero (Simon Northwood), but he is too advanced, so they recruit a jock, a nerd, a slut, and a neurotic virgin. War hero gets loose and carnage begins. There is a lot of blood; even a ripped off face, but there just isn't enough action to keep things interesting.
The complete lack of titillation makes this a chase for the out of control machine while the new recruits run around trying to escape. It is probably in the Wat-Mart $5 bin right now. Save your money and watch Near Dark again.
