The story of two American soldiers behind enemy lines on D Day.

Wyatt Russel as the lead. I'll take him over Clint Eastwood's boy any day

I also get the 2 confused sometimes. Scott Eastwood is a pretty boy with no acting chops.

I'm intrigued by the trailer. Not sure it's giving the feel that they want though. The use of ACDC's "Hell's Bells" makes it feel like a gritty, but fun war movie kinda like Inglorious Basterds. Then at the end when the music cuts out, it feels more like a horror film, which I imagine is closer to what it really is.

You get Wyatt Russell, who looks like a young Owen Wilson, mixed up with Scott Eastwood, who looks so much like his dad? Are you blind? The two look nothing alike. Wyatt Russell is like Owen Wilson's kid. Wow, I thimk you need to get Lasik or maybe put the phone down and pay attention in movies.

When I first saw the trailer, I was like cool another WWII movie... then when the horror stuff kicks in... I'm like, is this a Cloverfield prequel?

I like Kurt Russells "alleged" son as an actor.

I think Owen Wilson's Zoolander character was loosely based on his life... where he was in an orgy with Kurt Russell and Wyatt's mom, among others too... and Owen is truly the father.

The ads for this movie are showing its 93% rating on RT. There have only been 15 total critic reviews. Seems a little early to include that in a tv spot.

That does seem pretty premature.

Wilkins, will you take me to this movie?

This came out on streaming yesterday. Sounds like some of you wanted to watch it but didn't see it in theaters

I'll watch this eventually. Need to find time to do it when I'm not going to scary the women in the house. I'm so brave compared to them

This movie was pretty messed up - The first hour or so play out like a typical war movie, but then steadily moves into horror territory, although it seems like the experiments are more like a Resident Evil boss than anything.

I liked the pacing and the tone/visuals of this movie and thought it was really well done. I was listening to The Last Podcast on the Left, and ironically, it was covering a three part serires on Josef Mengele, who this movie is loosely based after. The actual crimes of what he did and his experiments FARRR outweigh what this movie portrays. If the movie actually happened in real life, and that was it, then the world would have been far better off.

Started watching this yesterday to test out the new surround sound. First 10 minutes was awesome for that. Now trying to quietly watch at night while everyone is sleeping. Not as easy movie to watch like that. So many 'plosions

Just watched this today. First half of the movie is essentially just a WWII movie. The horror/scifi elements don't really start until almost an hour in. I enjoyed it though. Entertaining enough for a lazy, snowy Sunday afternoon.
