An interesting film but wasn’t as scary as I thought it would have been, the DVD menu in particular with its gruesome colour schemes really made it look like something other than the end result. It proves that in graphic design they can make 1 thing look really good where in fact the product isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, either way on with the film.
It was fairly well done and it quite well suggested horrors of war again but this time focusing more on the rotting corpse aspect which has horrors in itself, a fairly tense story with parts that have suspense but It was actually a bit disappointing in terms of horror that you usually see in films.
The effects were done quite well with the wires and things, gave the film an edge with these small, thin and pointy pieces of metal. Its hard to describe really just that it makes it seem quite squeamish in a way. The film also shows the hopelessness of being in a command, the Captain seemingly losing his mind yet the drones still have to follow, this aspect was shown pretty well. The film made you want the characters to get out of that situation, claustrophobic; stressful particularly at night but again the hopelessness with if anyone tried to escape they would be killed.
So it was entertaining to say the least but I expected something more, the last frame also seemed a little bit clichéd but other than that It was an alright movie.
