In a recent interview, Guillermo del Toro stated that when working with B material you should always treat it like A material. That is to say if you take it seriously, others will too. This is a sentiment sorely lacking in low budget scifi right now thanks to the success of schlocky crap like Megashark vs. Giant Octopus and even Ande Aja's recent Piranah 3D.
Luckily Darren Dickerson, writer/director of the Expendables meets Doom mash-up, D4, subscribes to the del Toro way of thinking. So, while his vision is sometimes hampered by money constraints there is more than enough good writing, smart filmaking, frights and fun in here to overcome them. Oh yeah, and mutants that will just Not go down!
The story of D4 may not be totally new, but at
Expendables fight mutants! It's our D4 review!
