Clumsy and disjointed sequel

After the relatively enjoyable first Outpost, this disjointed mess is supposed to take off where the first movie ended. however it fails as a decent zombie movie and the fact that they're still unstoppable resurrected Nazi's just doesn't have the same appeal it had in the original.

After the first team of mercenaries were picked off, the Nazi's up the ante by also taking out the 2nd team that were sent to look for them as well as most of the civilian populace in the surrounding countryside. Special forces teams are fighting a losing battle as commanders decide whether or not to just detonate a low yield nuclear device to cleanse the area shrouded by an EMP effect.

It seems that the Brigadefuhrer Gotz, also known as "The Breather" from the first Outpost is still attempting to recreate more members for his immortal army to amass a huge undead force by killing soldiers and civilians and injecting them with an experimental serum.

Overall I saw this to be just a noisy and directionless ball of confusion, with none of the likability of the first movie. I found myself having to rewind and replay multiple scenes as the camera loves to jump from one chaotic scene to the next in-between moments of irritating stereotypical testosterone fueled banter from the UK special forces team that are under orders to stop the advancing army and destroy the bunker they're all being created from. Part of the movie plays like a first person shooter game, where monsters are just lurking around every corner ready to jump out at you. And one scene is ripped directly from Raiders of the Lost Ark, where the zombies are all corralled in front of the bunker generator and are electrocuted in sync right through their bodies. I'm not sure if that's considered homage or just flat out plagiarism.

At times I couldn't work out who was who and with most of the action taking place in complete darkness with only flashes of light it became very disorientating to try and get some perspective on what was actually happening. The ending of this is left on a cliffhanger as well, however we never got a proper 3rd installment, instead we got an insipid 3rd movie prequel and for me, the less said about Rise of the Spetsnaz the better.

Most inferior to its originator.

I was a fan of the surprising Outpost of 2008. It was one of the few offerings of the last decade that rose above its cheapness. Steve Barker showed great potential, something that was made clear with the help of veteran character actors such as Ray Stevenson and Richard Brake; not to forget a tightly wound atmospheric soundtrack! Surprisingly, Steve Barker returned to write and direct this sequel and yet it plays like a franchise that has been continued by an amateur replacement.

Whereas the film has strength in a few authentic battle-scenes and the use of functioning weapons and blanks instead of CGI muzzle fire (very important to me), this review isn't about trying to save what remains of a bad film. Its lack of good actors coupled with everything else that fails makes it fall flat beyond its promising opening scenes.

Barker makes the mistake of reinventing what worked to such great effect the first time around. I understand that he was trying to broaden the scope for a greater sense of danger regarding the plot but he fails to deliver on a larger scale. And yet by the time we return to the bunker, it's almost as if the movie ran out of funding.

Outpost was claustrophobic and played on informational - and sometimes sensory - deprivation. In Black Sun, the cinematography is loose, the characters are paper thin and rather than a sense of urgency, the film is paced with the impatience of a rushed production.

Furthermore I was let down by the sudden differences in the undead Nazi threat. In Outpost they couldn't die, not even after the EMP blast in the final scenes. Now all of a sudden they're being defeated with knives and they're dumber. They don't attack with the same savagery and they do a lot of screaming, which kills the mystery that actually made them frightening.

Finally, and I'm breaking my own rule of not spoiling movies in my reviews, what the hell made Steve Barker think it'd be good or scary in any way to throw a witch hag into the mix? The ending doesn't even deserve the result of your insulted intelligence!

Screaming out loud movie!

Here is One Scary Movie that is totally enjoyable because unlike other "zombie type" films the screenplay is quite good & and the narrative makes sense. Timing is impeccable. Casting and atmosphere totally engaging. The details on screen give visual clues that are not only interesting but also relevant to the narrative. The action in the film has ties to the past and is also similar to the horrific conflict that tore Yugoslavia apart. The beauty of Yugoslavia's landscapes are evident but the forests and villages quickly change from beauty to terrifying. Some of the movie is underground and the way the scenes are lit add to the movement and suspense;cleverly accomplished. Female Nazi-hunter is cool as a cucumber and always gets her man, but this time will she succeed or fail miserably? great movie, best of the genre 10 out of 10 rating.
