Movie Info

A hardened seaman and a dogged reporter become trapped on an island with a mysterious scientist, a ruthless band of mercenaries, and a vicious pack of unidentifiable creatures in BloodRayne director Uwe Boll's seventh video game-to-screen adaptation. A team of mercenaries has been attacked on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest, and as mysterious reports begin to emerge from the chaos, a veteran Seattle newspaper editor sends top reporters Tom Moore and Valerie Constantine to the scene in hopes of getting the scoop on the story. Shortly after arriving on the island under the guidance of ship captain Jack Carver (Til Schweiger), the trio is attacked by mercenary commander Maria Sanchez. Though Tom is killed, Valerie and Jack manage to stage a daring escape and quickly begin to bicker over their plan as Maria's murderous soldiers fast begin gaining ground. Despite Captain Jack's plan to locate his friend Emilio and get off of the island as quickly as possible, reporter Valerie remains determined to investigate the strange situation and get as many details as possible for her upcoming story. Later, when Jack, Valerie, and Emilio are captured and taken to the secret lab of genius scientist Dr. Krieger, Valerie is extended an invitation to join the doctor in announcing his latest findings to the world. Though it finally seems as if Valerie has gotten just the scoop needed to make her story, the situation quickly turns chaotic when one of Dr. Kreiger's creatures escapes from the lab and sets out on a murderous rampage. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Abysmal, a far cry from what can be called entertainment. This is the first videogame-based movie where I've actually played the game beforehand, and it appears that legendary crapmaster Uwe Boll's game research consisted solely of reading the back of the retail box. I cannot fathom this adaptation would please even one person who played the game, so who exactly was the target audience?? It takes a full yawn-inducing 30 minutes for the film to reach the point where the game actually starts, and from there the only noticeable similarity between the two is Jack Carver's red Hawaiian shirt - which Til Schweiger changes out of 15 minutes later. His awful, thick-German-accented acting must've been the demented decision behind the introduction of the most annoying comic relief character since Chris Tucker in <i>The Fifth Element.</i> The sparse action scenes are dull, there is no chemistry between the leads, and the evil genius is a bore. Long before we reach the hour point, we don't care about any of the characters or anything that happens to them. It's a late entry, but <i>Far Cry</i> manages to sink to the very bottom as the worst movie I've seen in 2010.

    The modern day Ed Wood strikes again as Uwe Boll adapts yet another video game for the big screen with his hordes of Nazi gold lol!! this outting isn't too bad to a degree, the location and action isn't too bad and looks fine in a cheap 'Bond' type of way but that's about it. The plot is presumably the same as the game (only played it once) but I doubt it as Boll tends to wander, either way its a 'Universal Soldier' clone but no where near as good, the acting is acceptable, just about, with Udo Kier in his element as a B-movie mad scientist, Chris Coppola as a Dom Deluise/John Candy wannabe sidekick (shameful), Til Schweiger somehow lured into the film and Boll film favourite Michael Paré again.....dunno how Boll does it! The whole thing is pretty by the books really, there's nothing new or exciting here, its just a simple fast food, drive by flick that was rushed out and has been totally lost in time never to return, but it is better than the rancid 'BloodRayne' flicks.

    Mindless violence with no real point, the lead actress is terrible and Til Schweiger is too good an actor to be wasting his time in tripe like this.
