Plot: A Special Forces unit sent to infiltrate Pine Gap Australia’s top secret underground military compound come under attack from unknown forces. Pine Gap has been working on psychotically mind control but when it starts to get out of hand the military get stuck in the middle of a battle for control on the facility and the creations.


Verdict: Claustrophobic horror without any scares.

Story: I will always praise an idea behind a film and this does have a good idea, if not overused idea of genetic experiments. The problem is that the characters are so stereotypical you really just don’t care about them. There are a few twists and turns but I feel there may be one too many for once. (5/10)


Actor Review: Nicholas Bell – Caesar lead scientist who is being escorted off the base but his creations will be the units undoing. Standard performance that never really excels. (4/10)


Actor Review: Amber Clayton – Eve one of the patience at the base who has a power that she can’t control or so it seems. Mediocre performance that is more about the character’s changes, but never really convincing. (5/10)


Actor Review: Ditch Davey – Romeo the lead of the unit who is looking for a familiar face even though he has been sent to get rid of her. Typical solider performance that like the rest never really gets going. (5/10)


Director Review: Justin Dix – Good attempt using some good ideas but the final execution never really comes off. (5/10)


Horror: Very few scares. (3/10)

Mystery: The mystery isn’t too hard to solve. (3/10)

Sci-Fi: The experimental side works but not well enough. (5/10)

Special Effects: Some well used special effects but the best is a head explosion scene. (6/10)

Believability: You never know what the governments get up too. (2/10)

Chances of Tears: No (0/10)

Settings: The setting works well as the characters have little places to run. (8/10)


Suggestion: This is one for people to see late night on TV it isn’t one for go out of your way to see. (Late Night)
