Plot Summary: A routine military exercise turns into a nightmare in the Scotland wilderness.
Director & Writer: Neil Marshall
Stars: Sean Pertwee, Kevin McKidd, Emma Cleasby
Serious Jest: (Don’t Bother) Think Predator, but with worse dialogue and much worse special effects (ironically, 15 years later). The “dog soldiers” were laughable.
It’s a shame because the plot and its twists had some real potential. Some of the actors, such as McKidd and Cleasby, were also pretty competent. Finally, it appears that the military technical advisors were pretty good, as well.
