I love cinema, and cinemas.
Outpost is a watchable little low budget movie with a random team of ex-soldiers employed by a mysterious money man to protect him on an unexplained mission in Eastern Europe. The soldiers are a diverse selection of characters/nationalities, kind of like a less “bro” version of the guys from Predator, and a few moments also reminded me of that film, though this is quite different overall; more of a slow build and less action, mainly a requirement of the small amount…
A masterpiece of tension through expert direction of scenes where threat is all around but violence is unpredictable, sometimes exploding out of nowhere and other times menacing for excruciating periods before simmering down and letting us breath again.
The actions carried out by the main protagonists in this bloody war are quite awe inspiring but also fairly terrifying and more than a little disturbing. Whatever it takes?
