I had heard about this for a long time but never really gave it a second look for some reason thinking that it was just a cheaper knock off in the horror game movie craze(Doom,Resident Evil,Alone in the Dark..etc) well,surprise,surprise I really liked this! The movie actually has some really good talent in it,Tom Jane,Ron Pearlman even John Malkavich in a quick cameo role!) The movie's low budget actually helps it giving a unique ultra gritty almost steampunk look. The mutants themselves are not too bad either. My only real complaint was that there was so much non stop action that there was almost no time given to the characters. personally, i would have loved to have seen a little more of the ass kicking Devon Aoki. This is really worth a look if you love video games or action movies and are just burnt out on bloated crap like Transformers 2.
