In case you miss what's happening, one soldier wails, 'Oh, man, we're gettin' picked off one by one, here.'

Written, disappointingly, by Wes Craven and his son Jonathan, this limp sequel to last year's remake of Wes' 1977 original feels like the work of a guy who's spent a few too many days lost in the desert.

One man-versus-mutant dust-up ends with a sledgehammer to the groin. Enough said.

The mutants may or may not live to kill again, but at this point, these fussed-over grotesques are better suited to wax museums than movie theaters.

A secret comedy lurks within this decidedly shoddy piece of corporate horror.

It's no better or worse than most films of its genre.

Weisz' first feature was 'Butterfly: A Grimm Love Story', a banal study of a real-life cannibal killer. Like this sorry sequel, it amounted to far less than the sum of its body parts.

A retro horror-comedy featuring quick deaths and cheapo-looking gore, with a few dorky laughs and gross-outs but not so many scares.

For anyone other than hardcore gore-hounds, this flipbook of deliberately invoked global-unrest horrors, from friendly-fire killings to rape as a breeding weapon, is effectively mean and unrelenting -- and pretty far from fun.

The new movie is a pre-combat nightmare, whereas the first -- Alexandre Aja's effective 2006 remake of Craven's low-rent 1977 original -- was pure post-nuclear paranoia.

You'd like to think such bankruptcy of imagination means we've seen the last of these subterranean creeps. But you know they'll be back soon to collect their royalties from the gore hounds who apparently don't care how dull [it is].

Although the ads warn, 'The lucky ones die fast,' the truth is, 'The smart ones walk out early.'

The film may not be as scary as its predecessor, but it will make you think twice before you use a Porta Potti again.

Director Martin Weisz does an adequate job of maintaining the movie's tension and momentum, but the lack of compelling characters and the unusual level of nastiness makes this an arduous mission for all involved.

Helmer Martin Weisz, whose background is largely in musicvideos, meets the challenge of creating dread in broad daylight, before the entire cast of soldiers and carnivores heads underground, into the warren of mines and tunnels where the mutants dwell.

It is only another by-the-numbers, don't-mess-with-the-formula screen filler aimed at the gore-hound fan boys who sustain all these franchises while bemoaning their sameness.
