Just finished watching "Deathwatch" a low-budget British war/horror movie. Overall it wasn't too bad. Not the greatest, naturally, but watchable. (And for a low budget horror movie, I didn't laugh all that often, which is usually a good sign.)
The Plot: World War One, the Western Front, the British Y company survives a battle and end up in a forward German trench. There, they capture a German soldier, but soon realize that the Germans aren't their enemy here - rather, something unnatural and evil lurks in the mud.
My biggest gripe with the movie was the number of cast members it had. I had a very hard time keeping track on who-was-who and which ones died. The writer/director Michael J. Bassett to his credit did try to make each character unique.
The film stars Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters) and an extremely crazed Andy Serkis (Gollum, Lord of the Rings.) All three do an amazing job. (As did the others, all of which I never heard of before.)
If I was a star-giving out man, I'd give it a 3 1/2 out of 5. Good effort, worth a rental if weird war movies are your thing.
