British director Neil Marshall's directorial debut Dog Soldiers resurrects and embraces the low-budget horror-comedy. Sergeant Harry Wells (Sean Pertwee) leads a team of British soldiers on a routine expedition to the Scottish Highlands. The six men would rather be at home watching the game, but they are even more dismayed when a carcass lands on their campfire. The next morning, they happen upon a severely injured Captain Richard Ryan (Liam Cunningham) and the bloody remains of his squadron. Soon they are attacked by giant werewolf beasts and chased through the woods, only to be saved by zoologist Megan (Emma Cleasby), who explains some of the truth about the creatures. They all take refuge in an old farmhouse while the threat of the monsters looms increasingly heavy. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Zulu with werewolves by Texan99 September 5, 2010 - 1:03 PM PDT
This is "Zulu" reimagined as a horror flick. One character muses about Roark's drift, and the sergeant admonishes a naysayer by saying, "Shut up, there's a good gentleman. You'll upset the lads," quoting the Zulu color sergeant. Above-average but not entirely successful hold-the-monsters-at-bay story with good actors, action, scenery, and dialogue but iffy plot and fx. When it comes to the werewolves, less would have been more. Kevin McKidd (Vorenus from Rome) is wonderful as always. Sean Pertwee as Sgt. H.G. ("Harry") Wells is worth watching as well.

A werewolf movie with brains by chrisoe November 2, 2007 - 11:07 AM PDT

We loved that both the werewolf and the soldier characters made smart choices, that they acted in characteristic ways. We liked that the gore wasn't over the top. It wasn't just a carnival ride, there was a story here. In a "scary" movie, plot and character are fairly uncommon things to find.

It's not werewolf movie with soldiers. It's a soldier movie with werewolves! Could it possibly be that, towards the very end of the movie (spoiler alert), the line "There is no Spoon" is a Matrix reference?

Just goes to show you that horror movies weren't meant to be PG-13!
