review by
Mike Haberfelner

When hunting for rabbits in the woods, two young boys (Connor Eve, Charles Mann) find a secret bunker stacked with weapons from World War II - and suddenly they're attacked by someone or something, leaving one of them dead while the other's run over by a car trying to get away. Naturally, the police are investigating - which actually results in several officers being murdered at or near the scene of the crime. And while the murders are brutal, it seems the assailant has known what he was doing in each case. Detectives Huntley (Rosie Fellner) and Unwin (Tristam Summers) pick up investigations, and while they gather many an interesting detail, these details as of yet fail to constitute in a clue - and the murders of course continue. This leads to the army being flown in to help smoke the killer out - with little success at first. Enter Jack (John Rhys-Davies), occupant of a nearby senior home and World War II veteran, who tells the detectives that back in the day he was part of a super secret special force that in case of a German invasion was to hide in bunkers like the one above to conduct guerrilla warfare on the invaders, with a pretty much limitless arsenal at their hand sin the secret bunkers. Now of course, the Second World War is pretty much ancient history, but it seems one of the special forces soldiers who was actually killed back when has come back to life - and not knowing that the Germans lost the war he wants to take his country back. And his expertise in weaponry and booby traps are advanced enough to even take the army out ...

 

Quite an interesting film that really manages to lead one astray as to where it might lead to: It starts out as an ok slasher with elements of police procedural tagged to it just for good measure, only to eventually go supernatural to then culminate in a First Blood-inspired finale. And thanks to clever writing and a directorial effort high on atmosphere and suspense, this still comes out as a coherent whole, and a very entertaining one indeed. And of course, a very strong cast doesn't hurt one bit, either.
