Storyline

A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves. Written by Dismal Angel

Dog Soldiers is a dark humoured film in which a group of soldiers are sent on a training exersise in the scottish highlands.

I'm a huge fan of werewolf and I always see the most important features of a werewolf film is the actual werewolf. This is where Dog soldiers excels. Had the werewolf's been on all 4's the film would not have been so good. Instead what we have is a group of tall hairy scary killing machines who will rip you to pieces and eat you. On the other side we have a group of soldiers who just want to get home for the England football game. The film plays out like night of the living dead.

I'd rank this the 2nd best Werewolf film I've seen, behind American Werewolf in London.
