Dog Soldiers

This debut feature film from Neil Marshall puts an interesting spin on the whole werewolf thing. Seems the military want to use the furry things as a new soldier and a poor squad on a training mission end up having a bit of a tangle with them. Sounds like silly stuff but Marshall handles it in a dead serious manner which is what makes DOG SOLDIERS so unique. Sure, it has blood and some killer action but it's a dialogue driven picture and a damn good one at that. A bit on the low budget side perhaps but excellent writing with a competent cast will always overcome that.
