Storyline

In a seedy bar in a town ravaged by war, mysterious businessman Hunt hires ex-marine D.C. to assemble a crack team of ex-soldiers to protect him on a dangerous journey into no-man's land. To this gang of hardened warriors, battle-worn veterans and borderline criminals killing is just a job - and one they enjoy. Their mission - to scope out an old military bunker. It should be easy - 48 hours at the most. Lots of cash for little risk, or so he says. Once at the outpost, the men make a horrific discovery that turns their mission on its head - the scene of a bloody and gruesome series of experiments, carried out by the Nazis on their own soldiers during WWII. Amid the carnage, they find something even more disturbing - someone who's still alive. As war rages above ground, and a mysterious enemy emerges from the darkness below, D.C. and his men find themselves trapped in a claustrophobic and terrifying scenario. Their mission is no longer one of safe-guarding - it's one of survival. ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When DC pulls out the pistol from its holder in the generator chamber, its sound is identical to Return to Castle Wolfenstein (2001) when the player swaps weapons. Similarly, when the soldiers emerge from the truck, the slamming noise is the same as in RTCW when the player attempts to open a locked wooden door. See more »

Goofs

Hunt speculates the discovered apparatus might have been designed to "manipulate a unified field". In actual physics, the 'field' in unified field theories is not used to signify a 'force field' or something. Rather, term 'field' is used in the sense of a 'group of mathematical formulas'.

Prior: [Prior shoots the Breather in the head] Well, that worked.
Jordan: So we can kill them, right?
Prior: His brains are all over the wall. That's good enough for me.
McKay: [the Breather sits up and looks at them] Oh, you're hummin' my balls!

Good ideas, risible villains... a chance missed.
23 March 2008 | by isomeraseSee all my reviews

Although the idea of this movie is not entirely new (similar plot lines can be found in older movies like "Shockwave" from 1976 and computer games like the "Castle Wolfenstein" series) it is still rather original and appealing: Nazi scientists attempt to create indestructible "super soldiers" in order to achieve world domination.

The acting is very good.

The movie's special effects are also well realised and a certain amount of suspense is undeniable, especially at the beginning of the movie.

However, there were some inconsistencies that ruined the movie for me.

Firstly, the explanation given in the movie about why the paranormal phenomenons happen is incomprehensible. I would have preferred no explanation at all than a badly researched pseudo-scientific one involving some obscure Einsteinian theory. It makes it impossible to understand what the scientist is actually after the whole time.

Secondly the director seems to bend and adapt the "powers" of the undead at will, making them devoid of any credibility. Sometimes they materialise in sealed rooms and attack with great speed and deadly accuracy but in the next scene they stumble around like brainless zombies and can't even open doors. This fails to create the feeling of the main characters actually being stalked and hunted in a claustrophobic environment. I did not get a feeling of urgency and even felt a little bored at some point.

This movie disappointed me because I believe a chance has been missed to make something truly creepy and scary.

If you are just looking for gore and horror, however, you might still want to watch this movie. I would not actively recommend it though.
