Director/writer Neil Marshall, who would later bring us on a road trip to hell with The Descent (2005), brings us a, surprisingly entertaining horror action gorefest. It feels a lot like Predator (1980), but mixed with other movies like The Wolfman (1941) and also has a tiny touch of Mosquito (1995) to it, without counting other numerous horror films, so you can expect it to be a blast. The cheesy looking special effects ard raw camera give this flick a low budget charm to it, and, overall, this is one of the best horror flicks I've seen in a little while, and is sure to please any horror fan out there. Recommended !!

This movie is so original. It proves that you don't need a high budget to make a good film. This movie has good dialogue and the werewolves are creepy looking and aren't CGI.

This is one of the best werewolf films in quite some time, set in the Scottish Highlands with soldiers on maneuvers just long enough to realize that they've wandered into a real life or death situation. There's just enough humor thrown in to keep things fun and not as bogged down during the full-on siege, y'know, once our soldiers get trapped in a remote cottage, surrounded by feral beasts.

Highly recommended.

Dog Soldiers is a great movie. Its very low budget but they make great use of everything. The story itself is fairly decent and is more of something you'd see from a zombie movie but it works for this movie. The characters in the film are very well written and the performances are great and at times hilarious. The films setting is fantastic. I love the whole taking shelter and fending of waves of werewolve attacks. It fits perfect with the genre and makes for great and intense action sequences. The werewolves themselves are very impressive and huge. The people who designed them should be commended for the great work. They feel real and scary and violent like a werewolf should and best of all they are practical. Overall this film is fantastic and well worth a watch.

With the absence of over-the-top CGI and a healthy balance between gore and comedy, this unique take on the werewolf trope is both gritty and thought-provoking, making it a refreshing addition to the horror genre.

To put it simply, it's a zombie movie where the zombies are replaced by werewolves. With that said, it is a very good film with many great an interesting characters. The effects are all practical and are a lot of fun to watch. Some would say that it seems a bit by the numbers, but I would ask them to give it another watch and think long and hard about that decision.

I remember liking this a whole lot more the first time round. The Scottish setting and British cast are a plus (though the pantomime baddie soldier is laughable, but not in that fun of a way). The werewolves are positively elegant looking, the best thing about the film. Some of the banter's not bad, some is painful. Pretty good gore in a sort of over the top B-movie way. And a decent little twist that you can see coming. What really lets it down though is the descent into sheer action movie, and not the good kind - it's sub-par war action type stuff. Really, really boring in that regard. If you're a werewolf junkie/connoisseur, however, it's worth seeing just for the glimpses of the werewolves .

A pretty decent British horror film with some good action scenes plenty of gore, Some nice humour thrown in, The story has been done before but it's great heart pounding film.

Like American Werewolf in London as well as Silver Bullet this is the best werewolf movie you'll ever come across. I know this one will go down as another cult classic.

It may not be that frightening, especially for today's standards, but for 2002 it was pretty top of its game. Original, funny, kickass & cleverly enjoyable. Such a fun watch.

Did what it said the tin but not really wanting a sequel.

A (very) low budget action-horror B movie that truly earns its cult status, Dog Soldiers is grim, violent, darkly funny, and about as subtle as a wrecking ball.

The best werewolf movie since the 80s. Great new concept for the classic movie monster.

Low-budget gold is what you can call this film. After a group of military finds themselves running from creatures in the woods, it eventually leads to them surviving in a home. That is the basic plot of this film, and while it is nicely executed, it can't help but feel it's run time. For a film that only clocks in at about 105 minutes, that is not the greatest statement. With a fine cast lead by Sean Pertwee, the slow character moments sitting by a campfire or when they are moments away from battle are really what make you care about this film at all. The action is fun and the cast is enjoyable, making "Dog Soldiers" a good film, but nothing I want to revisit anytime soon.

A low budget genre film where you can see the effort and energy right on screen.

A little frightening and intense, even though some of the effects look corny.
