    Meh.

    First of all I had a really hard time getting past blatant historical inaccuracies. A mixed race airborne unit in WWII. Several bad guys armed with G3’s etc.

    But I still had high hopes. A WWII horror movie just has way too much potential. But alas it was lackluster.

    They went well past the halfway point of the movie before even getting to the horror part. They never explained what the stuff was they were injecting the soldiers with.

    It wasn’t horrible it just wasn’t all that good.

    Yeah it was really slow and while it wasn't bad it dragged on and on. And yeah the PC crap annoyed me too.

    If you want a similar movie on a lower budget that's absolutely bonkers, watch Frankenstein's Army. Utterly mad and vary entertaining.

    I was hyped up about that movie when I saw the trailers. Went to theater to see it about a week after it came out.

    Yeah the trailer was way better than the movie.

    Amen. He can ruin a good story quicker than anyone.
