On a remote US Army facility, a group of scientists vanish (actually they get brutally killed), while conducting top secret weapon experiments. An elite covert ops team, commanded by Lt. Tyler (Kevin Sorbo), is tasked with recovering the missing personnel within 24 hours.
From the very beginning of the film I had a feeling, that this was going to be some cheap “jungle monster” type of a sci-fi movie. As the film went on, my smile was getting bigger and bigger as this movie,in total, can be described in just one phrase: “Universal Soldier plus Predator minus the budget = Flesh Wounds”.
I am sure you’ve seen the “Universal Soldier” and the “Predator” as well. In here we have a lot of similar crap: A bunch of “elite covert ops” soldiers, who look like anything but elite, an annoying girl, who later falls for the hero, a cheap-looking universal soldier type of guy, who runs around in the jungle, killing people just like the predator did in his time.
Kevin Sorbo, who is mostly known to B-movie fans, as the Hercules from the infamous TV series, has been doing these cheap straight to video syfy movies, and this is just another one of those.
Bokeem Woodbine looks so “wood” and so tough, like he’s going to explode any minute. As for Heather Marie Marsden – she reminds me of Reese Witherspoon somehow.
Action scenes in the film are not that bad, the CGI is there, but there isn’t much of it, and the movie is cheesy, but enjoyable. Action scenes, sometimes completely idiotic acting and cliche dialogs will keep you awake.
If you decide to watch this, keep in mind – this is a rip-off, do not expect anything new here, just enjoy the film for what it is (the budget reportedly was 2.5 million USD.)
