On the eve of D-Day during World War II, American paratroopers are caught behind enemy lines after their plane crashes on a mission to destroy a German Radio Tower in a small town outside of Normandy. After reaching their target, the paratroopers come to realize that besides fighting off Nazi soldiers, they also must fight against horrifying, bloody, and violent creatures that are a result of a secret Nazi experiment.
Funny how so many reviewers got this impression that this was a WW2 era documentary instead of a Hollywood Horror movie where "facts" are rarely in play........
Don't trust the paid off critics
Just goes to show you the critics don't know what they are talking about. If you are more into Hollywood PCness then this is for you. If you want a movie that is fun and entertaining then save your money. Wasn't even worth the money to redbox this crap.
The thing is, many trash it for not showing a lot of blood or classic zombie killing. Many watch this movie with Call Of Duty:Zombies in their mind, they expect so much violence for this movie to be considered even worth watching. It has a decent share of all that a thriller should be. Granted its not the best movie but you've got to consider the fact that JJ Abrams had bigger project to worry about like Star Wars movies. It has a good amount of action, a tad of comedy, and a little scare to try and keep you a little invested but over all the acting wasn't too bad but nor was it outstanding, it was all around decent.
Poorly conceived, yet entertaining
This film was poorly conceived and written with so many historical inaccuracies regarding the demographics of the characters. The acting was average. The horror film aspect of the movie was entertaining, but not enough to push it up to a four star rating. Three stars is being generous.
