Customer Review

on March 12, 2008
Outpost is great little film - I bought it on a whim, as the story synopsis was interesting to me. I was consistently surprised at what a solid and enjoyable film it truly is - well written, well shot, and well acted. The characters are compelling, and avoid the narrow, one-dimensional macho posturing that most lazy filmmakers believe characterizes military life. At the same time, it effectively captures the consequences of that violent profession on the people that choose to make it their life's work. The horror element is very effective, making maximum use of the setting to achieve some real scares - and I would particularly commend the make up and costuming, which are very effective and essentially seamless (never apparent even though they are depicting some vivid subject matter). The core story is an interesting and unique twist on a subject other films have touched on - and the ending, while not exactly unexpected, is effectively delivered. I was prepared for a made-for-SciFi Channel kind of flick, and can only say that it is head and shoulders above that level - a wonderful example of what talented filmmakers can do with fixed resources as long as they have a true passion for the story they're telling. It comes through here. Give it a look, it's well worth your time.
