Goofs

The ship in question is a naval transport from WW ll, it has a couple anti-aircraft guns yet is basically a cargo ship with boom, derricks and cargo holds amidship. Yet in the movie it is called a battleship. This is a mistake because it isn't even a warship but a Navy cargo vessel. See more »

Torture to sit through
1 June 2008 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Oh when oh when will I learn not to let my absolute adoration of Lance Henrikson make me sit through even extremely bad films Ie. pretty much anything post-"Millennium". This brain-dead little number is no different. Attempting to tie a Iraq war film with a supernatural ghost story may work on paper, but this is not paper and the result is an absolute mess that's nearly unwatchable. Bad acting, bad special effects, incoherent storyline. One can go right down the list of bad film-making 101 and put checks down it. The sad thing is I KNOW this won't be the last movie I watch from Henrikson, i still believe the guy rocks. But it will be the last Roel Reine flick that I watch.

My Grade: D-

DVD Extras: Director's commentary; One night on the set; Alternate opening; deleted scenes; Trailer for this movie; and trailers for "War, Inc.", "Player 5150", "Day of the Dead", "Three Days to Vegas", "Jack & Jill Vs. the World", "the Amateurs", & "Rockaway"
