The movie is not a great one, but it is perfectly watchable should you come across it on cable. The action is decently staged, performances are a little funny and work well for a low budget film. More often than not, Dolph Lundgren looks a little bored, but I liked it anyway. I will never view Uwe Boll as a good director, but there are certainly worse, this movie shows that. If you have a little time to kill, give it a shot, just don't expect too much.
Audio/Video. The movie is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Overall, this production looks pretty good. There is nice level of detail, moreso in close-up. The majority of the movie is shot in the woods and the color palette reflects that. It has a very earthy look with plenty of browns and greens. The movie was shot digitally and does lack that distinct "film" look, but it is still a generally a pleasing image.
The soundtrack is presented with a DTS 5.1 Master Audio track and it does its job. Dialogue is clear, the surrounds are used nicely throughout. There are no real standout moments, but it does resent everything clearly separated and easy to listen to.
- Commentary. The first track is with director Uwe Boll. I have to admit, the guy is pretty entertaining. This track has him describing the origin of the story, talking about the cast and locations, as well as taking a personal phone call, talking about what he doesn't like about digital cameras and discussing his financial movie project.
- Commentary. The second track is with screenwriter Michael C. Nachoff. This track is a bit to the dryer side of things, but still is a bit interesting as we hear about how the script came about and the things that didn't work or got modified.
- Behind the Scenes. This is a brief featurette that takes us onto the set and features some interviews and some footage shot by Boll, himself.
- From Page to Screen. A five minute interview with Michael Nachoff about the development of the project.
