This review might be a tad biased, considering my personal movie tastes. I love Nazi films, zombie films, post apocalyptic films and conspiracy films
and Outpost manages to encompass those 4 genres into one masterpiece.
For a film working with a $200,000 budget it is simply amazing. It has won several awards, and i believe it deserves more.
Ok, enough for the endless praise.
The plot is a nice mix of reality and fantasy, touching on such conspiracies as the Nazi's relationship with the occult and the experiments that
resulted, the Philadelphia project and Einstein's change of heart after witnessing the Atomic tests.
There isn't a dull moment in this movie. From beginning to end you are left wondering what will happen next, and it is usually not what you expect.
Star power wise, i doubt any of the actors in the film are well known, but they all play their parts well.
The sets, costumes, props and special effects are all top notch. Being a history buff, it was refreshing to see the right Nazi uniforms used for the
right unit/division. All too often historical accuracy is neglected as far as WW2 is concerned.
In closing, SEE THIS MOVIE. It has been described as Platoon meets The Sixth Sense, but i'd say throw in an element of Event
Horizon and that'd be close to the mark.
