Evil awakens.

Edward Carnby (Christian Slater) is a private investigator specializing in unexplainable supernatural phenomena. His cases delve into the dark corners of the world, searching for truth in the occult remnants of ancient civilizations. Now, the greatest mystery of his past is about to become the most dangerous case he has ever faced. With the help of his ex-girlfriend, archaeologist Aline Cedrac (Tara Reid), and his bitter rival, government agent Richard Burke (Stephen Dorff), Edward is about to learn that just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it cannot kill you!

 *sounds of vomiting" Help me...

| | See all zombiesaurus's reviews (21)

Help me. I...I just watched...Well, I can't call it a movie, that would be like defecating on the original celluloid of The Great Train Robbery. Please, someone hand me some bleach that I can rub into my eyes so I never have to see anything like this again. I thought Alien Vs Predator was bad (and it is), but this piece of excremental flotsam makes me search for a word more evocative than "terrible". Boll cannot make movies: he makes dog-vomit in cinematic form. I have a dog. He vomits. It smells Baaaaaad. But I'd rather rub that into my face than suffer another minute of this abortion of a movie. Uwe Boll: the stamp of quality. His name on a movie should be like a flashing Rad-meter. If you are even holding the DVD bopx, you've got too close. Put it down and run. Run away. Far away. Don't stop running until you puke. Now look at that puke. It has more talent and artistic content than ANY of Boll's movies. And you saved some money.

 There aren't words yet created to explain how bad this is

This film is so bad I could not even manage to watch the whole of it, I ended up skipping through parts of it. The game is supposed to be a horror, which I guess manages it pretty decently, not the best but better than this. Games are not supposed to be made into films, especially not by this producer, who just ruins it. Do not but or watch this ever. It is the worst film imaginable.

OMG!! I actually forced myself to watch this last night. I have heard nothing but bad reports about it and thought it couldn't be THAT bad as it had Christian Slatter in it! Well it is THAT bad and I can see why he hasn't had much work after. How the hell Uwe Bowl can release a directors cut too? This man has sites on the web devoted to people airing how angry they feel about his films.. and now I see why. When in the cutting room and they watched the film and saw glaring plot holes, terrible acting and dodgy effects they must have been either drunk or high or just plain stupid. I have not played the games but I am aware of them and the story. AVOID THIS just because it is a painfully bad film.

 Alone in the Boll..!

I saw this film not too long ago.. I guess in everyone's case, this film really sucked! I was hoping for sometghing a bit better than 'House of the Dead'. But what did we get? Pure pappy show!
I couldn't believe Christian Slater, Tara Reid and Stephen Dorff got themselves into?
I think it was a big mistake for the three top Hollywood actors to play this utter rubbish!
The game is well more better than this crap!

 Worst film ever

| | See all SiOwen19's reviews (4)

I was interested in seeing if the film paralelled to the video game, and when I saw the film on advertised to be on sky I thought I would give it a watch....believe me I wish I hadn't!!!!

I stuck with it hoping that it would get better and actually make sense, I was let down...if anything it just gets worse!!!

From the off the opening dialogue gives no real insight to who/what/why the creatures exist or attack people, it skirts over the issue of human experimentation,and lacks a real plot and any logical story.

The fact that some 100 armed special forces troops all get wiped out in 5 minutes is bemusing when Slater manages to survive the film fighting these creatures with a pistol with unlimited ammo in an auto-reload clip.

And just when the film gets to the end point and they destroy the creatures underground they come back up to the surface to find everyone had disapperaed with no reason or explanation, and the film just ends.

So to summarise you have no story at the beggining of the film, a weak generalisation of the problem in the middle and a pointless, un expained or unimaginable ending....a minus star rating if anything!!!!
