Mutant Chronicles(released Oct/08)stars Ron Perlman as Brother Samuel,John Malkovich as Constantine and Thomas Jane as Sgt.Hunter.While watching it,I could not help but see the resemblance to a video game,which came out a year later,called Necromancer,which had the same kind of plot and setting. The plot finds Earth cordoned off into global pockets by big corporations in the year 2707.Each area is fighting the other for supremacy over resources.The soldiers and battles look like WW1,involving alot of trench warfare.The armaments however are retro-futuristic which betray its`older look.A back story explains that 10,000 years before an alien machine landed on earth and tried to devolve humanity into something of its own making;mutants.Mankind then got the upper hand and buried the machine far below ground and sealed it up.Well,the on going battles above have finally broken the seal and soldiers are becoming mutants once more.They are attacking any side they can.However the non-mutant soldiers believe their opponents are responsible for the horrors being slowly unleashed.By the time they figure it out Earth is in great danger. An ancient order dedicated to preserving the memory of the machine and how to defeat it if it should ever pose a threat to mankind again,comes to the fore.Earth turns its hopes to them in order to save itself.The leader of the order,Brother Samuel,leads a small band of men and women to the bowels of the earth,through ancient buildings and shafts.During the entire time they must battle mutants constantly.Once they reach the machine,those that are left dwindle down even more until there is only one man left standing.He unlocks the secret which sends the machine flying back into space.The final fadeout shows the ship in vast space with Mars to the right.Read more ›
