Dog Soldiers Plot Synopsis:

A British Squad is sent on a training mission in the Highlands of Scotland against Special Operations squad. Ignoring the childish "campfire" stories heard about the area, they continue with their mission and come across the bloody remains of the Special Ops Squad, and a fierce howling is pitching the night sky... With two mortally wounded men, they make an escape, running into a zoologist by the name of Megan - who knows exactly what hunts them. What began as what they thought was a training mission turns into a battle for their lives against the most unlikely enemies they would have expected - werewolves.

Dog Soldiers (2002) Review

Dog Soldiers has a lot of other movies it shares things in common with. It has a little of "Predator" in it. It also has a little "Dead Alive" and "Night of the Living Dead" in it as well. It has other movies too, but this one is a very good werewolf movie. This one revolves around a troop sent into the woods for training exercises. They uncover another team that appears to have been ripped to shreds. The good news is that these people who were killed left behind lots of weapons, and seeing how the other troop only had guns that fire blanks it is a good thing. The bad news is that all these weapons are fully loaded; whatever killed these guys did so, so quickly that the soldiers never even had a chance to return fire. There is one survivor who has a giant claw mark in his chest. The soldiers eventually find out that there are werewolves out in the woods and they find a girl who drives them to a farmhouse where the army men must hold out till dawn when hopefully the werewolves will return to normal. Great flick, people always told me this one was worth checking out and they were right. The only problem I had was understanding the actors at times as they had some heavy accents…don’t know if they were British or Scottish. You can understand them for the most part, though; it is just at times they say something that you don’t hear right and at others, they will say a "saying", and you won’t be sure what they are meaning. Other than that though this one was cool.
