” …a fast paced and fun movie that, despite its very obvious budgetary issues, is actually quite a lot of fun to watch. Production values are decent too, the suit looks cool, the sets are effective and while the CGI blood spatter is fairly terrible, the camerawork is pretty solid too.

“Director Peter Dang […] keeps the enjoyable story moving along at a quick pace, handles the premise with admirable seriousness and a refreshing dearth of pretense, and stages the savage attack scenes with flair (however, the use of painfully cruddy and obvious CGI blood does blunt the overall impact of said attack scenes).” IWoody Anders
