In the year 2707, Earth's natural resources have been exhausted by mankind. Battle rages between the soldiers of four leading Corporations: Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima and Imperial. When the violence breaks an ancient stone seal, Necromutants appear and begin to multiply by the millions, destroying all before them.

The Corporation's leader, Constantine (John Malkovich), is about to abandon the planet and leave countless innocents to their desperate fate, when he is approached by Brother Samuel, leader of the Brotherhood, an ancient monastic order who offers hope to the discouraged leader. Against the odds Constantine entrusts brother Samuel and other like minded soldiers to save them from the mutant armies.

 Don't expect Hollywood

| | See all warped100's reviews (37)

I will be the first to admit this film's graphics are not up to hollywood graphics but if you ignore that for a film that was made by a small british island with a budget of next to nothing it is very very impressive. I went to the cinema to see this film and the only bad graphics i could see was about a 10second window, it is so small you don't notice unless you are looking for it. This film has some of the best actors it has Hellboy and The Punisher what more could you want from a film. In short i loved this film, my whole family loved this film, my brother who is not a fan of this kinda movies loved it. Don't think of this film as a million dollar hollywood film think of it as a great actors doing a damn fine small budget film.

 Entertaining

This is a very marmite film. Its unusual, strangely shot and has a mixture of off the wall storylines that seem to mix up elements from: Sin city, aliens, final fantasy, resident evil, etc... Sean pertwee is great but not in it tooo much, and ron perlman changes his usual role for one thats been done a million times. This is a very well made and 'leave your brain at the door' kinda film, but i liked it none the less

 Not what you would expect

| | See all Grizzerlyadams's reviews (44)

For a start yes this is a B movie but it has a good cast and a good story really, The effects are not to the notch of a 50 million dollar block buster but it does have more than adequate effects to tell the story and not have you laughing at the screen. If your into sci fi try it out its good to see that some film makers still turn out low budget science fiction so well and has so much story as well as a typically old style science fiction end. I can say no more without letting you know the ending. Get this film if you like scifi and can see a story without being constantly being bombarded by needless effects.

 Give it a go...

If your into Warzone, 40k or sci-fi/steampunk rpg's you are going to love it! Yes its low budget but they've done well with what they had. If you just want to be entertained and not have to think to hard its the film for you...

 Not the Best, but still very Underrated

| | See all NeoWolf's reviews (41)

As the title says this may not be the best film, but it is nevertheless in my opinion still very underrated.

Unlike most who seemed to reveiw it it would seem I was fortunate enough to be familiar with the Mutant chronicles setting prior to watching the film so to some degree I already knew kind of what to expect... the kind fo setting it is has more in common with say Warhammer 40,000 (Games Workshop) than say Star Wars (Lucasarts) it is sci fi but it isnt laser guns and special effects sci fi per se. It is instead a much darker, gritter setting where thenly constant for centuries has been war and conflict.

The movie detaches from the source somewhat with its almost Steam Punk approach as Mutatn Chronicles is actually technologywise more high tech and the troops typically look and are armed more in the style of what you would expect in "H40k as previously noted...while still retaining that Dark Ages, Quasi Religious feel to things. Also the film missed one of the major corporations of the setting which was a little odd.

The film centers around essentially around one officer and a prophecy that tells of the awakening of an ancient evil that was once defeated long ago, the great machine and of how a deliverer will save mankind.
the Wars between the corporations are put on hold when this evil awakens as unprepared for the onslaught it brings they are brought to the point of having to evacuate earth as much as possible to off world colonies...
Meanwhile a small group must be led deep into the earth to destroy the great machine against overwhelming odds and almost certain death..

The Dialogue is mostly okay a little shaky in places and many well known actors make an appearances from Ron Perlman to John Malkovich and more..

The overall look of the film is dark and gritty having a period look to it similar to as was done with Sky Captain and the World of tommorrow, it is however NOT like Sin City in appearance as some have noted, nor does it come across that way.

If the film suffers from anything it is in trying to do in 109 minutes what really would have needed a trilogy or more to do adequately. The characters involved arent really properly established except for two of them so you don't quite get the attachment to them you really should for the story they are trying to tell.

Also I suspect budget constraints was an issue but despite that they did imo do very well all considered.

If I were to make any comparisons of this movie to others I would probably suggest something along the lines of a wierd hybrid love child of Doom, Resident Evil and Aliens rolled into one as it lends aspects of each.

At any rate although I wouldnt say this film was the best, it was enjoyable and although probably not worth full retail would be a good purchase once its down to budget price.

I give it a 3 Stars (average..but with some potential) rating.
