Review: (#1) In the attempt to make something interesting, the chaotic nature of the design and the lack of fluidity make for a grating design.

(#2) Blood droplets fashioned into paratroopers, it’s a fascinating concept. The white backdrop makes them pop, making it a rare exception where a white background enhances the foreground. (#3) The syrringe may play a large role in the film’s premise, but it’s not a very compelling poster detail, especially when it’s the sole detail.

Trailer Rating: C / C

Review: (#1) If you’ve ever played the video game Return to Castle Wolfenstein or its ilk, you’ve seen this concept of Nazi experiments played out before and that lack of originality doesn’t give the film much of a solid footing.

(#2) With the second trailer, you get more of a sense of the plot at play and the period setting of the film. It still doesn’t present a particularly appealing effort.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
