This may be one of the strangest movies I have seen in a long time. The first hour is jam-packed with suspense, but it is painfully boring. The second hour has a bunch of great action, but the suspense is nowhere to be found. I almost want to congratulate the film makers for accomplishing something that seems nearly impossible to do.
This film is filled with below average special effects, people making stupid choices, and these zombie/monster creatures that make little sense. It had the potential to be something incredible and exciting, instead it is formulaic and boring.
If you were hoping for a film that mimicked the game play of CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS you will be thoroughly disappointed. The creatures aren't even really zombies. They are more like monsters if anything. It goes from an intense, yet slow moving, war film to a fast-paced, but predictable monster movie at the end.
The film does have a couple of good moments, but not enough to make this one a movie you need to see. Just skip this one, you won't miss it.
