Blurb from Netflix: Running for their lives, a desperate group of mercenaries take shelter in an abandoned tank, not knowing that the terror is only just beginning.

I was so disappointed in this movie. Honestly, the trailer is a better version that conveys pretty much the whole thing without wasting an hour of your life.

When pulling the YouTube link to attach said trailer to this review, I scrolled down the comments a little and had a pang of sorrow for all of the poor people exclaiming how they wanted to watch the movie to answer all the questions the preview had sparked.

Sucks for them – this movie answers none of them.  Maybe it’s just sucks for me, because I actually watched this and they might not yet have fallen into the time vacuum of this film.

There’s no setup for the plot aside from some vague military conflict. There’s no explanation for where the prisoners come from or why. There’s nothing flowing or organic about the dialogue. I was fighting falling asleep, I was so bored. There’s a twist at the end – but all it did was leave me with more questions, and a profound sense of bewilderment.

There are even better shaky-cam-centric movies out there. Seriously – unless you enjoy tension and pointless screaming as background noise – give this one a pass.
