    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.

    three months later, I finally finished the movie.
    I didnt mind the movie
    Not great, not bad, just there.
    I dont see myself watching again, it's not that good, but Im not bummed I watched it.

    What I liked was that it seemed sort of realistic in the fact that the Nazis would try to create a superbeing that didnt die. I mean, that sounds about right ha

    It was awesome at the Imax
    Not quite as intriguing at home.
