Quote :

The first time that I heard about this movie Mutant Chronicles movie and I am hyped. First, let me point you in the direction of the official Mutant Chronicles site, at mutantchroniclesthemovie.com. You'll find pretty much everything you need to know about this movie, and downloads.

Cast includes very good names: Ron Perlman, John Malkovitch and Benno Fürmann, all of which I like and respect for the roles they have played. The Mist's Thomas Jane is also part of the cast, as Major Mitch Hunter. This movie looks like its going to be different. Synopsis (adapted from the official site): When Earth's natural resources have been exhausted by mankind, battle rages between the soldiers of four leading Corporations: the Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima and Imperial. Mitch Hunter and Nathan Rooker, Capitol soldiers, fight a desperate battle against a Bauhaus advance. When an errant shell destroys an ancient stone seal, they find themselves facing a new enemy: hideous necrmutants, with boneblades that grow from their arms. Mithc barely manages to escape. Nathan does not.

The mutants multiply by millions and they destroy all before them. The Corporations' leader, Constantine, is about to abandon the planet and leave countless innocents to their desperate fate, when he is approached by Brother Samuel, leader of the Brotherhood, and ancient monastic order

Samuel is keeper of the Chronicles, a book that prophesies both the rise of the Mutants, and the 'Deliverer' that will destroy them. Samuel believes he is that Deliverer destined to journey deep into the earth and destroy the source of the mutant scourge.

He manages to recruit Mitch, along with a handful of like-minded soldiers: Steiner, honor bound Bauhaus officer; sword wielding Severian; street fighter El Jesus; fearless beauty Duval; and stoic warrior Juba.

"Mutant Chronicle" follows Mitch and Samuel's mission to venture into the very heart of the darkness in an attempt to save the planet from marauding hordes of deathless mutants."

Hoh. That's cool.

Never really got into the roleplaying game, but I did play the card game, doom trooper, some, and the minitures were cool too, as was the comic (Bisley covers ftw).

The story always fascinated me, with the megacorps colonizing the solar system and all that. It might make for a great splatter movie with the Dark Legion and all, too. Hordes of those zombie-things.

It doesn't seem to be about my favourite period in the timeline, though. It's too early.

EDit: Good find, I'm getting it now.

Even if it's crap in itself it's still something I want to see. For sentimental reasons if nothing else.

@snee , hope its not one of those straight to DVD releases . Think it was panned at Cannes but I like Sci-fi anyway so thought I'd post about it .

Ron Perlman, John Malkovitch are two actors I enjoy as well .

It seems like Sin City out there, but it's fine and also like War Inc., not bad. The Movie is good cause it got many Famous Actors.

Famous Actors never make crap films- just ask Sean Connery.

Right, seen it. I'd not bother with it unless you're into the old franchise and have been waiting for something like it.

I recognised all the characters, which was cool, but the story sucks balls and the acting is really uninspired half the time. Oh, and they've changed stuff around, for the worse.

Still, thanks for letting me know about it, Pete.

I'm just hoping there's a better attempt at some point.

I watched this film because Ron Perlman's in it and i'm always buoyed by seeing a man who looks like a gorilla act so well.it's based on some kind of role-playing franchise, and frankly, i'm glad i didn't.

This is based on a tabletop RPG I used to play as a kid that goes by the same name. I started to watch it but fell asleep and I'd *guess* it's only for the fans. I will give it another try soon; wish me luck!
