The cover and description makes this move sound more epic and far more interesting than it actually is.
In reality, it's a bunch of guys running around in the woods and getting shot at frequently.
The camerawork is pretty bad (most scenes are too bright and overexposed and the "flashbacks" are apparently intentionally very grainy). The "monsters" look like they came from a bad episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and weren't especially frightening (maybe to a 5 y/o?)...
I'd give this one a "fail." Not impressed.
Was hoping for something epic (I mean, WWII, Hitler, Nazis, "mutants"; they could have don SO much more). This wasn't it... The cover art is nonsense and has NOTHING to do with the movie. AT ALL.
Again, if you want to watch an overexposed movie about guys running around in fields and forests getting shot at, this is your movie. If you want a "zombie" movie, for the love of God, see something else. I suggest Shaun of the Dead, Fido, Zombieland, Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead (the remake), maybe Slither (if you're desperate or have already seen the aforementined).

Absolutely Horrible Movie, Bad Acting, Lame Story
Joe Blow | California | 11/15/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I rented this and feel like a sucker. I can't imagine someone actually buying this. Avoid the good reviews as they were no doubt created by anyone of the people listed in the "credits" of this movie. One can at least find some unintentional comedy in poor "B" movies, but that's not even there. The story is flat and boring all the way through.
About the only thing they did invest in with this movie was artwork for the DVD cover. Don't be fooled."
THE HORRORS OF THIS MOVIE (watching it that is)

"Don't be fooled by the other reviews of this film posted here. This movie is just plain TERRIBLE! Super boring. Stupid script. Lot's of terrible stuff in this one. The very sparcely used CG war effects are decent but you can see better on the History channel for free. The dvd cover art is very misleading as well. This is a VERY small story, not the horror epic the cover art conveys. AVOID!"
TERRIBLE Film-Do Not Be Fooled By the Cover!

"Like many others on this board I was fooled into renting it by the cover, which almost suggested something epic, as well as the fact that it was an official selection in numerous horror film festivals. The film appears to have been filmed entirely in a 2-acre plot of forest in Ohio with the same field, forest and ruins prevalent throughout the film. Do not watch this film expecting to see scenes shot on location in France and Germany, or even epic battlefront scenes for that matter. Expect lots of running around the same batch of trees for an hour and a half. Secondly, the special effects are by far the worst I have ever seen. The scenes at the beginning with the bombers going down are clearly PS3/XBOX 360 quality CGI. I have seen better CGI in a number of videogames. The costumes are laughable. I swear the mask the "werewolf" was wearing is available at my local party costume store. I wont even get into the absurdly low quality and unintentionally hilarious "zombie" masks. The story itself was derivative and boring, though the premise has possibility that might have made a decent film under a different director and crew. The acting is amongst the worst I've seen in recent years and the characters themselves are unmemorable, cliched cardboard cutouts. The dialogue was similarly idiotic and clearly was written by someone who has chosen the wrong career. Overall a terrible film with a great cover that is sure to fool many more into watching it. Avoid like the plague."
