An alleged engineer hires a half-dozen mercenaries to help him find “minerals.” Turns out he’s really looking for a Nazi machine that may have been able to utilize Albert Einstein’s Unified Field Theory to produce a troop of undead super-soldiers.
The cast, led by the always interesting Ray Stevenson [Rome, Punisher: War Zone] is perfectly adequate for the demands of the film. The writing [Rae Brunton] and direction [Steve Barker] build suspense; provide some solid action and some pretty decent chills as everyone begins to realise what they’ve gotten into.
Final Grade: B-
