Definitely isn't setting any precedence, but it's serviceable and fun.

Oh, lighten up! It's a pulpy combo of Starship Troopers, The Dirty Dozen and Sky Captain. Perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon.

Mutant Chronicles is The Dirty Dozen - but with murderous mutants!

There's lots of shooting, grenades exploding and things going bang and, even if the film gets bogged down by some needless religious mumbo-jumbo, the whole thing looks great in a grimy, Blade Runner kind of way.

There's no doubting the frenetic energy of Simon Hunter's steampunk thriller with its deft mixing of CGI and live action. The mutants are artforms of grotesqueness and truly terrifying.

It's a murky film, in terms of both plot (overcooked) and visuals (underlit), proudly artificial and yet burdened with a severe pulp deficiency.

This movie is lost from the start and never finds its way. Plays like a video game with repetitive special effects and wooden dialogue.

The computer-generated imagery falls short when it comes to supplying the gore for the fight scenes: the bright splashes of red look almost literally Photoshopped onto the settings.

It's photogenic people killing mutants before green screens; what more could you ask?

Stylized, slapdash sci-fi bloodbath is gory and grim.

Shoestring special effects and flimsy storytelling make Mutant Chronicles a B-movie fantasy in search of an old Times Square moviehouse.

...makes one long for the comparatively straightforward incompetence of filmmakers like Uwe Boll.

The reason most movies don't include aliens, zombies, weird mysticism and a lot of swordfighting is that each of those elements... takes time to explore and nurture into something compelling.

Combine some of the most misguided design decisions in years with dialogue, plot, and characters out of an Uwe Boll film and you have a definite misfire

You won't understand what's going on and, even worse, you won't care.

I dearly hope John Malkovich got paid handsomely for his two days of embarrassment on-set.

Every guy has watched an action film and wondered when we'd get to the good stuff, but from minute one we're given "the good stuff," but it's just not executed well enough, and the film is too kitschy to really be enjoyed.

The feature is better executed in a shoot-first-ask-questions-later style that encourages silence and brutality. Once the material is asked to explain itself, the entertainment value of the film curdles immediately.
