An OK Predator-style movie

This movie is very similar to the original Predator and Resident Evil movies but it lacks their quality. The strongest side of the movie is the military action, which is on par with the best of the genre. The team is well equipped and the tactical element is well handled except maybe the use of scope indoors. However, the story is somewhat weak (goes with the genre) and the special effects quite cheap so when it comes to the sci-fi stuff and explosions, this movie feels 10 years old.

Generally, if you are a fan of either Predator or Resident Evil, this movie will not disappoint. If not, stay away from this one.

Blackjacks

The working title for this film was "Blackjacks" the name of the private operating group that conducts itself as Navy Seals. I suppose "Seal Patrol" test marketed better in the US, even though there is no real patrol or SEALS. An incident happens, or is caused by Dr. Whitmore (Roark Critchlow) at a private secret underground reactor in Khazakstan, a nation Herman Cain can't find on a map. Once communications is lost Silicon Sara (Tina Casciani) who only gets important messages while in the shower, thank you, is the first to know. Her boss (Eric Roberts) hires the Blackjacks to find out what is going on at the facility. They take along with them Lisa (Kristina Anapau), a psychic human bloodhound with the expected minor telekinetic powers who doesn't shower.

Once they arrive, you can start scratching your head like you did watching that Indian Jones and Crystal Skull thing.

The movie was done in a faux-grindhouse style, not knowing what direction to take. The acting was horrible (hint: Eric Roberts is top billing). The plot was poorly developed. The character building was ineffective. You do get to see the creature who sees life through a green filter, about 15 minutes from the end of the film. Feel free to help yourself to a "B" and cheese rental.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, shower nudity (Tina Casciani). No sex.

Hardly worth the watch

I based my decision to watch this on the rather positive review and was disappointed.

The story is flimsy, there doesn't seem to be much of a connection between events.

The characters are flat, as a viewer I didn't see any personal side of the roles being portrayed, as a result of this, none of the potentially heavy events (deaths) moved me in the slightest.

The acting is poor, especially one 'grumpy character' is being portrayed in an overdramatised way, there's a sense of high-school-play.

the effects are rather fake and some shots have obviously been used several times (bullets hitting, undefined movement) The black and white stills didn't quite add anything either.

there is no buildup of tension whatsoever.

Wouldn't recommend anyone to watch.
