Review by Matt Usheurrrr!

imagesThe mere fact that FALLEN SOLDIERS exists is a miracle, a victory for cheek over common sense. It is a triumph of determination, of standing up for what you believe in, of leaving your mark, of realising your dream. And as such I heartily commend it and congratulate all involved for making it.

From the perspective of people making a thing, it’s a wholly positive project.

But.

It is the duty of the reviewer to warn, guide, and advise the viewing millions. And this is, after all, a review.

Which is my extremely long-winded way of saying I don’t think this film should have been released to a paying public. That’s not to say it’s unwatchable (like STAGGER) or even bad (like ANGEL) but, by its nature, it cannot deliver what a paying public can reasonably expect or hope to see.

Our tale is set in 1815 during the dying days of the Napoleonic Wars. Yes. Here is a film set two hundred years ago treading the same territory as epics like WATERLOO. (Wasn’t that epic so epic that no-one’s dared make a film on that scale about Napoleon since?) (Except that bit in TIME BANDITS.) (In fact let me address you directly Sir Ridley – cos I’m sure you’re reading: why haven’t you made TRAFALGAR? Or you Mr Tanter? Mr Sothcott? How about you then, the makers of FALLEN SOLDIERS?)

Anyway, here’s a no-budget historical adventure film. With zombies. Yes. Now before getting worked up it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t the first historically informed zombie movie: zombies love World War 2. And there’s a significant chance that PRIDE & PREJUDICE & ZOMBIES will be released before I finish writing this review (perhaps they should have delayed FALLEN SOLDIERS till that comes out and grabbed a lift on its coat-tails/petticoats?), so let’s not dismiss it as some crazy stupidly objectionable notion just yet.

Our hero (Matthew Neal) is a British soldier behind enemy lines who has discovered an unpalatable truth about the cheese-purveying frog-fancying enemy (please note I don’t condone this view, though, now I think of it, no-one actually says anything like it). He hijacks a surprisingly roomy (and presumably very well soundproofed) horse-drawn carriage containing a Frenchman and his wife, and heads for home. Having nothing better to do, he whiles away the time by recalling his adventures, which we see in flashback, and committing accidental homicide.

He tells of how he and his comrades have been on a mission, captured, escaped, captured (etc.), encountered zombies being used by the French army –froggy scumbags!, chased, captured, experimented on, got zombified/killed, escaped (not all of them), had adventures, and hijacked a roomy carriage. Eventually he runs out of flashback and we see how his quest ends, and there’s unsurprisingly a twist in store for him, and a confrontation with fate and villainy.

Our leading man, a kind of poor man’s poor man’s substitute for a Sean Bean wannabe is pretty good at mild desperation and looks suitably perturbed and determined. Meanwhile his frequent interlocutor is Eve Pearson (GANGS OF TOOTING BROADWAY), replete with obligatory heaving bosom and the sort of comedy French accent which I last heard in ‘Allo ‘Allo. Great though that accent was in the sitcom, it sits less happily in a grim nineteenth century zombie war film (she’s nowhere near as bad as the customs guard chap though). Our hero is abetted by a bald burly thug and someone who looks like a scraggy Britpop reject who keeps muddling his lines. But he keeps going, and that’s the hallmark of this insanely-conceived film.

Someone very early on should have pointed out the folly of trying to recreate the Battle of Salamanca with a cast and crew of about thirty (particularly as a lot of the cast are the crew). True, the film-makers are aware of their limitations and work round them with lots of close-ups and suggestions that we’re watching stuff happening on the fringes of the battle. They could have gotten away with it had there been not much of it, but as the film wears on, the threadbare essence of the exercise becomes more apparent. Using a flashback structure is a good move (and is also a nice nod to nineteenth century novelistic traditions and conventions) and hides a few shortcomings.

The film-makers are certainly resourceful (putting extras in masks means that you can use the same performers over and over) and know how to cover some inevitable deficiencies The cast perform entertainingly (if not always convincingly), and I like the boldness of the concept. There’s good use of locations, and the director knows how to operate in confined spaces. And there’s good, sparing use of zombie gore and grisliness. It’s very much a promising work-in-progress. But despite lots of auxiliary positives the story itself isn’t interesting enough and it runs out of steam long before the script stops.

In short this is a good statement of intent, as an example of what an imaginative team can do with no cash. But is this really a film that should be unleashed on the casual shopper? It should, by all means, be on Youtube, and they should sell it to Movies4Men or whatever the channel’s called. It should be used for showreels and festivals. It has a lot going for it. But it’s not a film for the general viewer paying a tenner for the privilege. Putting this in shops where unsuspecting innocents could stumble upon it seems wrong, particularly as the likeliest outlets are the treat yourself shelves by supermarket checkouts. Such unsuspecting purchasers, fancying ninety minutes of gory be-frocked mayhem, will be bitterly disappointed by this am-dram stuff and are unlikely to make allowances for budgetary constraints, or to appreciate just how difficult it is to get anything on screen when your budget is only slightly more than the retail price of the DVD. But I’d like to see more from this team, and I hope someone can give them a bit more cash next time.

UNHALLOWED GROUND

2.5 out of 10

Release Date: 12th June 2015

Director: Russell England

Cast: Ameet Chana, Poppy Drayton, Thomas Law, Marcus Griffiths, Morgane Polanski, Rachel Petladwala, Paul Raschid, Andrew Lewis and Will Thorp

Writer: Paul Raschid

Trailer: UNHALLOWED GROUND

Unhallowed-Ground-PosterSomebody’s been overdosing on Scooby Doo! Out of all the haunted house movies I’ve ever seen this is the one that resembles the plot template to every single episode of the popular ghost busting cartoon dog show.  The only thing missing was a dog. Well, the dog is the finished movie really.

The makers left suspense at home on this occasion and thought that they could swap the usual band of frightened team of self-loathers with a bunch of posh school kids playing at soldiers on their last night at boarding school.  Said poshos get given this task 350 years to the day that four head boys where ritualistically murdered during the days of the bubonic plague. Uncanny shadows with glowing eyes turn up in unexpected places whilst the kids carry on oblivously working out their place in the world and amongst their peers. Meanwhile, a pair of really thick cat burglars (AMEET CHANA and WILL THORP) turn up to raid the school archive to steal some first editions books. So our plummy Famous 5 (or 6 in this case) split up and look for clues as to what’s making noises, duffing up the Asian characters and throwing spiders into shower cublicles. I think “Lets split up!” is one of the main bits of dialogue. Even with the added peril of having a human threat (the burglars) as well as the ghosts, the scare level is dialled down to around 1 out of 10. It seems to take an age for the ghostly spirits to attack anybody.

The acting is reasonable by the whole of the cast, yet the script and story is so clunky that any potential it does have leaks away before the mystery is solved. The unmasking of the non-supernatural killers is very Scooby Doo. I think the baddie even says “I would’ve gotten away with it if wasn’t for you…blah, blah…”

The setting is fairly creepy but the whole film is bloodless and fairly boring for a horror. The only fairly well-known actor is Ameet Chana (WILD WEST) who was in Eastenders for a long time. Subsequently, he hogs top billing but he’s not the main character and he seems to be fairly relieved when it’s his turn to go home.

The DVD box gets a mention for being the most misleading cover ever. It has an American style ranch house on the front, not a boarding school (ala Stow) (not the picture included above). The written description also describes the plot to an altogether different film which sounds no better than the effort enclosed. It’s like the synopsis was written long before the film got finished and the wrong word.doc got sent to the PR / Copywriters. It talks about a haunted derelict house on the moors where a group of friends take shelter for the night? The mind boggles.

2.5 out of 10 – All potential is lost by a lack of pace and fear. There’s nothing new to report in this flat exercise in how to make a horror with zero number of scares. Well acted but slight and ultimately botched.

ANGEL (2015)

2 out of 10

Release Date: 20th July 2015 (DVD Premiere)

Director: Ray Burdis (The Wee Man / Love Honour & Obey / Final Cut / Operation: Good Guys (TV))

Cast: Margo Stilley, John Hannah, Jenn Murray, Karel Roden, Andrew Woodall, Jason Maza, Stephen Billington, Mark Burdis, Georgina Hale, Christopher Sciueref, Beryl Nesbitt with Crissy Rock, Richard Blackwood and Peter-Hugo Daly

Writer: Ray Burdis

Trailer: ANGEL (2015)

CLGm1o-WgAAWjfkIt would seem that as of late, the bigger the names in the cast the lamer the film. Angel (2015) comes equipped with an experienced and mostly talented cast but it will be hard to find worse performances from any of them elsewhere. Former actor, Burdis,came back as a director last year, after dabbling in the trade in the late 90s, with a solid gangster movie called The Wee Man. There was nothing special about it but it looked the part, was well scripted and solidly acted. Everything that was right with The Wee Man is wrong with his directorial follow-up, Angel (2015).

An utterly unconvincing police procedural-cum-serial killer thriller-cum-government conspiracy, Angel (2015) packs in so much plot into its slender running time that it races through without a pause to make it a) exciting b) remotely plausible c) watchable.  Movie detective, Det. Bradbury (an uninterested and utterly bored looking MARGO STILLEY – 9 SONGS) teams up with an erratic Det. Lapslie (a miscast, over-acting JOHN HANNAH – FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL) to track down a serial killing psychopath called Angel (JENN MURRAY) who has been let out of a mental home by a naive MP (STEPHEN BILLINGTON – CORONATION STREET) to cut up anyone who pisses her off. Pity poor newcomer Jenn Murray who gets to perform from some of the worst bits of the unintentionally funny / bad script as the titular Angel. Living next door on bad actor street is the once dependable Jason Maza (#LEGACY) who puts in a terrible appearance (possibly his worst yet) as a potential boyfriend for Angel, his dialogue is terrible and matched up with his dreadful attempt at a northern accent he can add this film to the pile of embarrassments he tries to tip toe away from. There’s some good work put in by bit-part actor Peter-Hugo Daly (ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS) as a paedophilic clown and comedian Crissy Rock (LADYBIRD, LADYBIRD) but this is a mostly a tragic rush job. Its potentially interesting conspiracy plot seems botched and when twinned with the crappy script and its wildly uneven performances, Angel (2015) is a big disappointment.

2 out of 10 – Flat and weird non-thriller (formerly known as Still Waters) is another example of name actors sullying their good names for a couple of quid whilst hoping secretly that the results will never see the light of day. Everyone involved needs to give their managers and their egos a good talking to. Awful in every way.

Look below for Matt Usher’s review if you dare…

THE DEAD 2 – INDIA

7.5 out of 10

Release Date: 13th July 2015 (DVD Premiere)

Director: The Ford Brothers (Never Let Go / The Dead – Africa)

Cast: Joseph Millson, Anand Goyal, Meenu Mishra, Sandip Datta Gupta, Poonam Muthar

Writer: Jon Ford & Howard J Ford

Trailer: THE DEAD 2 – INDIA

The-Dead-2-new-posterFor those that were utterly disappointed with World War Z, like me, they should check out this sleek and very enjoyable zombie Britpic set in India. The Dead 2 – India is an unconnected sequel to The Dead – Africa made back in 2010.  It takes an imaginatively ‘what-if?’ scenario and runs with it. It even brushes with Bollywood-style plot mechanisms like giving our hero and orphan to team up with and some light soap-operatics in a sub-plot. Keeping the potential soppiness at bay from in main plot make The Dead 2 are rare zombie movie in this day and age, as it’s one that thrills, chills, disgusts and ultimately makes you realise what would happen when events hit fever pitch in a developing country with an impoverished majority.

Our hero is British actor Joseph Millson (DEAD OF NITE), who’s never been better. He’s never been that good before but in The Dead 2, he’s quite, quite brilliant.  He’s matched by a young actor Anand Goyal, playing an orphan who falls under his care a third of the way into the film. The presence of a child could have been a mistake but the child is given lots to do and intial misgivings are quickly dispelled when you learn that the film pulls no punches when it comes to who lives and who survives.

Set-pieces include trying to drive over a mountain pass crammed with zombies and lorries coming from the opposite direction, a heart-wrenching mercy killing, and a brutal, yet frightened military presence. At all times is the central story line depicted sensibly and on point. Millson plays Nicholas, who is trying to reach his Indian girlfriend (MEENU MISHRA) who lives on the edge of the Jaipur slums. When the outbreak begins he is 300 miles away across the desert working on a wind farm.  He witnesses the first killings from high up a wind turbine.  The plot involving his girlfriend, who is holed up with her mother and father is a bit soapy and works less well. But eventually when the two plots overlap the melodrama makes way for serious storytelling.

India plays it’s role beautifully and there’s rarely been a better setting for a zombie film than here. It’s desert, mountain and city locations are all well employed and I’m looking forward to seeing it’s predecessor when it arrives in the post this week.

There are continuity errors to be had. Bandages disappear from actors and re-appear; car doors open and close between shots and Millson’s six-bullet revolver seems to have an endless supply of rounds which never need reloading. Not having to reload saves his life particularly near the end when he shoots his way through the slums.

The Dead 2 wins points for being brutally straightfaced and not looking cheap. Cinematography, great acting and a lush score beef up the kudos. The zombies look good except for the cataracts. But the extras get points for the spooky, extra slow walk they employ. No matter how far our characters run, there’s almost always a zombie in the distance in shot.  A memorable shot sees our characters walking across a series of giant graves. The soil can be seen moving as what lies beneath must be reaching up to escape – “I Think They Can Hear Us!” It’s the most quietly disturbing scene I’ve ever seen in a zombie film for a long time.

At last the Brits have a decent low-budget zombie flick to recommend. And it’s set in India!

7.5 out of 10 – A great, yet simple zombie story set in an usual place. Scary zombies too prove that there’s still life in the twitching corpse of the living dead genre after all.

A HITMAN IN LONDON

2 out of 10

Release Date: 6th July 2015 (DVD Premiere)

Director: Ara Paiaya (The Supressor / Maximum Impact (2008) / Death List)

Cast: Gary Daniels, Dominique Swain, Eric Roberts, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, Alan Ford, Jerry Anderson, Max Cavenham, Ara Paiaya, Ron Smoorenburg, Angie Simms with Jeff Fahey and Mickey Rourke

Writer: Alan Davidson

Trailer: A HITMAN IN LONDON

A-Hitman-in-London-2015How the mighty have fallen. Almost without exception, each of the top billing ‘stars’ of this pitiful action film have put in more than one excellent performance elsewhere. We even have an  Oscar nominee present like Mickey Rourke (THE WRESTLER). Somehow, all these actors have aligned to put in some very bad work for martial arts film director Ara Paiaya.  Of all the dimmed stars only Jeff Fahey (IRON MAZE) seems to care about getting his lines right, although he remains seated throughout the entire film.

A Hitman In London could have been called A Kangaroo in Surrey or An Ewok in Halifax for all it has to do with the title. UK action-plank Gary Daniels (THE EXPENDABLES) stars as the titular hitman (called Bradley), who after bollocksing up a hit on Mickey Rourke retires to the same street which Paul Tanter and Jonathan Sothcott shoot all their dodgy movies.  He hides out opposite a whore house and eats Chinese food in the dim hope his former employers won’t find him. He’s that far off the grid you see.  After some Russian pimps steal his takeaway and duff up Dominique Swain (FACE/OFF) for a fourth time, Hitman Bradley decides enough is enough and kills everybody. This leads to his discovery by the whorehouse owners (DARYL HANNAH who tries hard and MICHAEL MADSEN who somehow manages to out-shit his last shit performance) who are connected to Hitman Bradley’s shadowy former employers – The Executive – ran by an on form but bored looking ERIC ROBERTS). Madsen and Hannah’s scenes seem to have been shot seperately (Richard Driscoll-style) possibly in America, because their paths never cross Hitman Bradley’s. It’s as if they’re scenes could be lifted out of this film and place wholesale into another cheap actioner – it could happen – really! Poor Dominique Swain‘s Ho has a sister who is working in another whore house called The School House which doubles as a Conservative Party Gentleman’s Club. So he goes on a rampage trail that leads him all the way to the top. A confusing, half finished back-plot is played like a conspiracy thriller with a Poundland budget, and nothing gets resolved. Michael Madsen and Jeff Fahey just drop out of the story line unexplained and a dead Mickey Rourke pops up to make threats about pissing in someone’s eye socket. Pity Alan Ford (THE SMOKE) who can do his role standing on his head, but he’s misdirected and fucks up a string of standard Alan Ford invented cliches, so even he can’t be relied on here.

So what of our hero Gary Daniels? He’s been around for years but this soft-spoken embarrasment to wooden objects has only graced UK cinema screens once in a reasonable role as secondary henchman to Eric Roberts in The Expendables. He’s not a great actor and his fight-work is badly choreographed and shot. He looks uncomfortable having to shoulder all the heavy lifting too, especially with so many formerly cool name actors in the same room as him. He actually makes the likes of Scott Adkins look like Laurence Olivier. Maybe he’s better in other films, but I’ve not seen any of them.

For fun look out for the director’s cameo (ARA PAIAYA) as a sped-up henchman, X,  in the ‘penultimate’ fight complete with helicopter blades and disappearing body parts! Also giggle at the henchman in the barn who gets hit on the head with a plastic bucket and then a plank of wood, whilst everyone else gets butchered or shot. Slim pickings, indeed, enjoyment wise you have to lower yourself to pisstaking.

There’s very little to recommend about this shoddy actioner. It’s forgettable, rushed, cheap and only worth a look to see some former greats take the money and run. A Hitman In London is the graveyard of vanities.
