A group of young urban workaholics sign up for a weekend of paintballing to have some adventure. But the adrenaline-filled entertainment soon turns into a manhunt, in which they become the prey and the hunter shoots live ammo not paint. It is no longer a game! Written by
PAINTBALL is another attempt at survival horror which reminds one a little of the likes of WILDERNESS although this is far, far worse. It seems to be a British film that was made and filmed in Spain, and despite the presence of British actors in the cast list the whole thing sounds like it was dubbed in post production; the voices feel false and unconnected to the characters.
It's an entirely dull effort, one that fails to fulfil the basics like crafting likable characters or indeed setting up much in the way of a story. The tale is about a group of paintballers who find themselves being picked off one by one by a maniac using a real gun. There's little more to it than that, and the whole thing is an excuse to show off some violent effects. Sadly the cinematography has the whole 'greyed out' look to it and the kill scenes are very poor; this is so amateurish that it's not worth watching.
