Dog Soldiers (2002)
Other Movies Seen By This Director (1)
I watched this movie on 10/31/2011 at/on/via Blu Ray.
It's no secret that I'm a Neil Marshall fan; I haven't seen a movie of his that I didn't like. Dog Soldiers was actually the first I saw, albeit in a chopped up version on SyFy. I could tell from the editing that there had to be a better cut of the movie out there and it didn't take me long to track down and own the DVD.
I bought the Bluray last Christmas season and figured Halloween was a good time to crack the seal on it. While I still love the hell out of the movie, I've got to say that the Blu transfer isn't the best. It seemed to be washed out and a bit too grainy during the outdoor night scenes. The interior scenes came through pretty well though.
I can't help but compare this movie to Zulu, with its waves of attackers and the slow retreat from defensible position to defensible position. Aliens also applies this same technique to great effect, as do any number of other movies.
