4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Steampunk Sci-Fi Adventure April 6, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie was a fun Steampunk Sci-Fi Adventure. Predictable but much better than most of the cookie cutter Hollywood garbage that has been in the theaters lately. All in all it was a very good war movie and worth while.
Loved the fact that I was able to watch a pre-theatrical release at home. for those of you who thought it was overpriced, 9.99 is what you pay to see a movie in the theater and I watched it with my sons, saving an addition $30.00, so this movie was a bargain. I'd highly recommend this movie to people who like the genre. Special effects were good and I really enjoyed the steampunk aspect of the weapons and vehicles. COAL POWERED SPACECRAFT AWESOME!

3.0 out of 5 stars NO HOPE FOR THE FUTURE? August 3, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
There are movies that are released that you think will be good, movies you hope will be good and movies you want to be good. On occasion it happens. But for the most part, as with MUTANT CHRONICLES, it never quite makes the mark.

Based on a role playing game, the basic outline was there. Fans of the game though have complained at the changes made. In any event, we are presented with a world of the future ruled by four warring corporations constantly in battle. During the latest conflict, a seal set in the ground is broken and an army of zombie like mutants, each with one single spear-like arm, is unleashed.

History reveals that this seal was put in place by a religious order when an alien spacecraft descended to Earth and began changing men into these mutants. Nearly defeated, man conquered this invasion and sealed the machine in the ground. The order maintained a book telling the tale as well as preparing for the day the seal might be broken. That day is now.

As mankind heads off planet to Mars, Brother Samuel (Ron Perlman) puts together a rag tag group of misfits who man be the planet's last hope. Former combatants are now untied to save the world as instructed by the chronicles. Armed with a secret bomb they don't even know how to use, they head deep underground towards the machine with the hopes of destroying it.

Among this group are the lesser characters, those that you know are just fodder for the mutant horde to follow. But the natural leader of the group is Mitch Hunter (Thomas Jane) who seems cynical to the extreme but whose humanity shines through at the oddest moments. Along the way he saves a group of survivors and later attempts to rescue his old commander from the mutants.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but nothing special either August 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Mutant Chronicles finally makes its way to DVD, and despite some negative press surrounding it, the film as a whole isn't so bad at all. Taking place in the distant future where Earth is run by four warring corporations, a race of mutants is awakened and begins laying waste to everything and everyone in sight. Spiritual elder Brother Samuel (Ron "Hellboy" Perlman) thinks he knows how to lead humanity to salvation, so he gathers a crew of soldiers for a suicide mission. Most notably among them are Thomas Jane (The Mist, Hung) as rugged soldier Mitch Hunter, and Sin City's Devon Aoki; and they all make their descent to save the world. While Mutant Chronicles is capably directed and features CGI effects that range from halfway decent to Sci-Fi Channel (or is it ScyFy Channel now?) quality, the film's biggest flaw lies in its pacing. The first half of the film is sadly boring, but it does manage to pick itself up for the second half, and doesn't let go as the film races towards its conclusion. Jane and Perlman are good, and despite the dim lighting, there are some fairly decent action scenes to be found here. All in all, Mutant Chronicles isn't anything special in the least, but it is definitely worth a look for sci-fi/action fans at the very least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable! November 9, 2009
Format:DVD
I was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this litte film.

I loved the look of the movie--it had a sort of retro-future feel to it. I absolutely loved the look of the technology, the coal-powered flying machines were just about as awesome as anything I have ever seen in any movie.

The characters were well-played by all of the actors (including a small part by John Malkovich, and a favorite of mine--Ron Perlman). Thomas Jane did a terrific job as the lead character. His scene at the end of the movie was perfect.

I am impressed with what the director (Simon Hunter) did with a small budget and will definitely be watching for any other films directed by him.

What more can I say--it was great fun for me!

Doesn't play in Samsung players?
First off, happy new year. I just plopped this in my samsung and after trailers, nothing. Rule of thumb is if something plays other than the movie, it will be your firmware. I just got on the samsung site and downloaded the latest & greatest, and it works. The latest firmware release was in... Read more
