This was a kind-of fun homage to now classic horror cult films, but that's all it ever feels like. One low budget homage.

Director Neil Marshall is beginning to carve out a decent career for himself as a director of seriously good movies. His feature film debut, Dog Soldiers is an unashamedly derivative, all action and gutsy Horror film which just happens to be one of the finest werewolf films ever made. Crammed with in jokes, movie references and cheesy character names (Bruce Campbell anyone?), Dog Soldiers is a delight from start to finish. Considering the low budget, the effects are gloriously bloody and highly effective and the actors are all incredibly boisterous and realistic. Unpretentious and extremely tongue in cheek, Dog Soldiers is a little gem of a movie which quite comfortably deserves a place on anyone's list of all time horror movies

Hmm, this seems to be a cult favourite of horror fans. In the end, I didn't know exactly how to feel about it. I didn't know if the filmmakers wanted the audience to take the film seriously or lightly because I do see some homage to the 70's and 80's horror flicks ("An American Werewolf in London," anyone?). I did enjoy some scenes when they were in the house as they try to escape and/or kill the werewolves. But, at the same time, I felt like the entire movie dragged on like there's no tomorrow. The whole military set-up seems all too forced so that the characters will have weapons they can use to fight back. I wondered a couple of times if the picture would've been better if they did not have any guns. Because once characters have guns, all they can do is shoot until they run out of …
