As you might expect of a film called Dog Soldiers, this was pretty silly. But it was silly in the way that only British humor can be. Or perhaps it’s not actually funny, it’s just that I love the British accent so much.
Because if it’s not funny, I’m not sure what it is. It’s certainly not scary, though I’ll admit I’d be terrified if I ran into one of the werewolves from this movie in real life. Then again, there are a lot of things that would probably be terrifying if they were actually real.
But Kevin McKidd, Liam Cunningham, and Sean Pertwee are all real, and all in this movie. And I like all of them (especially when Kevin McKidd isn’t using an American accent).
And it was directed by Neil Marshall, who also directed The Descent and more recently, the segment “Bad Seed” from Tales of Halloween. So it’s no surprise I still liked it.
It’s bloody, it’s silly, and it’s pretty damn British, but I really liked this film.
