1.0 out of 5 stars Oh this is bad... May 26, 2009
Format:DVD
I thought there might be a chance this movie would be amusing, if not slightly reasonable given the cast.

I was wrong.

There might be some spoilers here, and for this movie I use the word lightly, but be warned.

The basic plot:

1) Crack team of commando type soldiers get assigned a special mission. Cuba us their leader.
2) An anthropologist, who works for the CIA, is the special 1-time leader. Their mission is to extract her father, who is another scientist type.
3) The go into a bunker, which used to be a tomb (1,000 feet deep). In the process, we learn that "sand can blast your skin off, so stay tight". Because if you are close to one another, obviously sand *can't* blast your skin off... for some reason.
4) The SAS type folks then find a person full of disease like boils. Of course, they treat the person and don't think that this is odd. The person is a priest, still alive, who they don't bother really containing.
5) Most of the SAS types go down a very fast moving elevator. 1 stays up. We learn that you can watch porn anywhere, as the 1 at the top level is keen to view porn. Later (by the way) he see's a hot lady on the level (which they previously cleared). So, we learn that SAS folks expect to find hot, naked ladies on levels of underground bunkers - which were previously found to have no hot naked ladies - and this is normal. Of course she eats him.
6) Back to our fearless heroes below. We learn that if you are SAS, and you see your unborn baby girl suddenly be a little girl while wondering the tombs underground corridors, you should follow her. It's a great idea. Then we learn that if she turns into a demon, that's reasonable (and she's still...cute?) I suppose SAS deal with that daily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low Budget Straight To DVD Release June 11, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The problem seems to be the high expectations people are having for this film starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Ron Pearlman, and Henry Rollins.
This is standard B movie stuff. The plot is a rehash of material done in the past. The title says everything you need to know...THE DEVIL'S TOMB. If you don't like cheeseball movies that include the demonic possessed, projectile vomit and Satan then this isn't for you.
The acting was actually pretty good for a low budget film. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ron Pearlman are fine actors, and I found it entertaining watching former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins overact in his role as a Catholic Priest.
The latex monster FX (boils, demonic make-up, blood) were also pretty good, but the few CGI FX included were dated. The plot could have been better, but I give the movie three stars because it was fairly entertaining compared to the other straight to video drek coming out these days. My wife hated this film and left the room until it was over. I believe most people will react as she did to this movie, so if you don't like B movies don't even bother.
I suggest renting rather than buying. Unless you are a hardcore Ron Pearlman, Cuba Gooding Jr. or Henry Rollins fan then you probably aren't going to get a whole lot out of this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't they have anything lower than one star? April 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Absolutely the last time I watch a movie without checking out the reviews first, even if it is free. An hour and a half of my life lost, waiting for something of some value to come out of that hole of a movie - never happened. Vague notions of a plot, intermixed with dumb wandering soldiers, looking to die. Something about fallen angels, but they never could put that thought completely together. A complete waste of time.

1.0 out of 5 stars A zombie film dressed up in Exorcist's clothing June 15, 2011
Format:DVD
So you want to make a film about zombies, but the whole zombie thing is overblown. What do you do? Make the zombies possessed humans instead! Director Jason Connery takes the ickiest aspects of the Exorcist and projects them onto the zombie trope in Devil's Tomb, complete with boils, blotched skin, white irises, and black vomit. These zombies are actually possessed priests sent to contain a Nephilim, which in a twist worthy of Chuck Missler, is portrayed as a Grey alien. That's about the only innovative twist Devil's Tomb has to offer.

And really, why should we be surprised? The warning signs are right there in the title: Devil's. Tomb. This is a devil's tomb, get it? He's entombed and he's a devil! This Nephilim is trying to get out of course, and he possesses a variety of Special Forces soldiers to execute his ingenious plan of...not using the elevator that the soldiers take down to reach him.

Oh yeah, the plot. Mack (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) leads a Special Forces team on a mission to rescue a scientist named Wesley (Ron Perlman) at the behest of CIA agent Elissa Cardell (Valerie Cruz). Wesley, who also happens to be Elissa's father, was on an archaeological dig site that has since been sealed for mysterious reasons. Elissa won't explain why, but we know it has something to do with Wesley. The movie wisely saves Perlman for last, because really, even Gooding is sleepwalking through this movie.

The movie shambles from there. Half the film is taken up by flashbacks to the various soldier's sins: soldiers who had abortions, soldiers who lust after porn stars, and soldiers who activate self-destruct devices that require a hasty exit with great self-sacrifice.
