Now this is one exciting action film filled with gruesome and wicked effects. I'd been meaning to see this one for a long time, but finally getting the Blu-Ray was enough influence for me to need to see it. In a way I'm glad I waited to see it in High Def because the effects are so incredible plus it's quite beautifully shot so there is a load to take in. An elite group of soldiers (like GI Joe, only instead they are body builders) are sent out on a mission in the jungle on a rescue mission. When the find the people they came to save skinless and upside down they start to realize they are in more danger than they realize. Will they be able to figure out whom or what is stalking them in time to live? It's really really violent (which I like) and well it's sort of a strange action/Alien hybrid, it's surely one of the best I've seen so far. Definitely something that anyone who appreciates violence will enjoy, seriously a "wow" movie.
