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 claims that when Einstein "saw the atomic bomb tests at Trinity, he abandoned the research" on the Unified Field Theory and burned his notes. Firstly, there was only ever one single Trinity test, world's first atomic test in 1945. The operation was not named after the location but the other way round: 'Trinity Site', on what is today White Sands Missile Range, was only afterwards so named because of that test.

Einstein was not among the Trinity observers, nor did he stop his work on the Unified Field Theory. The first time Einstein even published anything about it was in a 1950 article in 'Scientific American' titled "On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation". See more »

Quotes

DC: You said that that machine of yours was made to control them?
Hunt: Not control, contain. But they obviously got the maths wrong.
McKay: You know, for a smart man, you don't say much of anything useful, do you?
Hunt: Now, the last time you found yourself dealing with the undead, what did *you* do?

Claustrophobic Atmosphere, Many Unexplained Situations
29 May 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a European country devastated by the war, a group of six mercenaries leaded by DC (Ray Stevenson) is hired by the engineer Hunt (Julian Wadham) to protect him in a travel to a no man's land. In accordance with Hunt, he is the representative of a group of investors and he has been assigned to visit one facility in one of their real estates. When they arrive in the spot, they find an old Nazi bunker with a pilot machine and evidences of gruesome experiments with human beings and one survivor. While protecting the outpost, they are attacked by invisible enemies; when Hunt discloses the truth about the mysterious device, DC realizes that they have to fight to survive to an invincible supernatural army.

"Outpost" is a horror movie that keeps a claustrophobic atmosphere, but has many unexplained situations. Why the fiends did not kill the whole group at once? Why the fiends became corporal? Why the leader of the fiends stays in the bunker? Why the mercenaries keep shooting the fiends if they know that their bullets and mines are ineffective? In the end, "Outpost" entertains, but I really prefer the South Korean "R-Point" or the British "The Keep" (1983) that give better explanation to the supernatural events. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Missão de Risco" ("Risky Mission")
