Deathwatch - Is it any good?
Member Name: numptyboymatt
Advantages: An british horror movie - SHOCK!
Disadvantages: Not particularly frightening or scary!
In a nutshell, it's about a group of WW1 survivors trapped behind enemy lines, and they take refuge in a German trench whilst awaiting their rescue. And, from that point on, things start to get strange.... and they just keep on getting stranger!
This isnt actually a bad movie, it's relatively enjoyable, it's just that we've seen it ALL before, (Amityville horror for example)and to be honest, not a lot happens until the end, and then, what does happen makes no sense whatsoever (to me anyway, not that I claim to be a genius!).
I have to say, when I saw the trailer for this movie, it looked fantastic, but it was certainly very misleading as it promised so much which the movie itself just doesnt deliver. Dont get me wrong, I stand by my claim that this is isnt a bad movie, it just isnt as good as it could or should have been.
Worth a rent.
Summary: Good, but not as good as it could or should have been.
