I could not get a read on this from the trailer. It looked kinda bland, but I knew to expect more from a Bad Robot production. Then the buzz started to come in on Stardust touting this as a bonkers grindhouse gore fest, and I could not get to the theater soon enough.
A troop of soldiers during WWII are dropped in a small town in France, ordered to take out a tower the Nazi’s are jamming their signals from. At least that’s where it starts. The first half plays out like a war flick. Then second half, is something bloody different.
I was so impatient watching this film. We know I love my gore, and I was hoping to regret choosing to watch this at the Dine In with a plate of shrimp tacos. The build up was good ), def felt like it could have been a straight up war flick(reminded me of something between Fury and Inglorious Basterds, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I should have. I was waiting too much for the second half, a la From Dusk Til Dawn. The second half did not disappoint. It wasn’t as non stop as I woulda hoped, but the bursts of gore were quite satisfying.
