    Odd and silly at times, the story never comes. Together through the mayhem

    A "Star Wars" wanna be, but I did find it pretty interesting. The first 30 minutes were epic, and the blood\gore were pretty awesome as well. The acting and effects were ok, but that doesn't stop this sci-fi horror film from being a great flick.

    Set 700 years in the future as humankind face extermination at the hands of sadistic mutants who have been unleashed from their underground dwelling. It's an odd but interesting and enjoyable film with lots of action and bloody carnage. Made on a fairly low-budget the film relies on clever use of CGI and minature work to achieve its futuristic setting, though it's quite obvious the movie doesn't have the same polish that other bigger budget CGI-fests have. It has its flaws no doubt, but this is still a damn entertaining action-horror that passes the time very well.

    Mutant Chronicles has been dubbed a new Blade Runner. However the film lacks anything great. The film is very bad, and the action scenes are very poorly done. Theres so much going on at times that you don't know what really is going on, and you have a hard time following the story. This is a pointless film with bad acting, bad script, bad special effects and bad directing. Violent, gory and irritating, Mutant Chronicles relies more on it's blood and guts to tell it's story, which ultimately fails because I found that the story was pretty much absent. John Malkovich has a brief appearance and he seems out of his element. Malkovich seemed bored throughout and seemed like he was in a dream. But considering that this film stars Ron Perlman who is I think one of the worst actors possible, it's only natural that this film would be bad. Mutant Chronicles has a depressing, muddy look to the overall picture. The action scenes seem rushed and like I said are very hard to follow. The acting is terrible and considering this cast, you can expect something nothing less really. Even Malkovich who is tremendously talented was bad. Mutant Chronicles was a wasted opportunity to create something pretty good. The film had a lot of potential, but it ultimately fails to do the terrible cast, bad script and bad special effects. Most of the film seems like a rehash of different action horror films, but this one is done very badly and the results in the end are very bad. Mutant Chronicles should be avoided.
