The Last Sentinel Reviews
November 22, 2009
This sci-fi actioner stars Katee Sachoff of "Battlestar Galactic" fame. Surprising decent and fairly compently made, with nice use of a stylized look; everything is sort of desaturated and slightly bleached, other than the blood. The plot is generic, but the characters are engaging and the action was good.

The one star is *only* because Katee Sackhoff is mostly nude at 32 minues in...otherwise the movie was absolute crap. :P

This was a very bad movie. Which I was disappointed because it had my girl in it. Well I guess we all make mistakes once in a while.

It starts off dull and unexciting, but picks up in several places. The film seems to rip off several others, and is only mildly entertaining for a few scenes. The rest is slow, boring, and dumb. The final act though is quite decent and has several good action scenes. It's not a great film, but it might be worth a check out.

I have to agree with the post on here by Kim W...
'The one star is *only* because Katee Sackhoff is mostly nude at 32 minues in...otherwise the movie was absolute crap'
But I would only just give half a Star !....not one complete !

A film that never really lives up to it's potential. The plot is very thin, and comes to a very convenient end that has the feel of "we're out of time and perhaps money", rather than a logical conclusion. It's disappointing to discover that it's just another film riding on an actors / series' popularity. It hypes up the fact that it stars Katee Sackhoff, aka Starbuck, even going so far as to put her in the forefront of the box cover. But she is at best a supporting character to the special ops soldier 'Talos' who is undeniable the focal point of the story, in another 'humanising' journey for a bred for war soldier. All in all, worth the watch only to say you've seen it. But if possible don't pay anything for the privilege.

[font=Times New Roman][size=4][color=#000000]Score: 7[/color][/size][/font]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][size=4] I was expecting yet another DTH release that was trying to cash in on the big budget [i]I Am Legend[/i] vibe. Though it does have a few elements of the Matheson short story, I was surprised to find that it offers a bit more than that. The plot has more in common with [i]The Terminator[/i] than with [i]The Omega Man[/i] to be honest and although it is obvious that this was a lower budgeted independent film, it still entertains with a pretty good story. I also like the fact that our main character?s main weapon has A.I. and talks to him. It?s interesting and also allowed for some amusing scenes, though a mini-gun that spouts bible verses pushed it a bit. The SFX are pretty well done for an independent production. The battle scenes especially were well done.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][size=4] The music score, again surprisingly, works great and actually does add to the viewing of the film. It works its way into the action scenes and adds to their intensity. The acting is not terrible but no one in the cast shines either. When all is said and done, this is a good independent post apocalyptic sci-fi movie that entertains its viewers.[/size][/font][/color]

Low budget sci-fi film, but it has some imagination and isn't too bad. The acting is okay, it doesn't stand out as good or bad. Okay story.
