365 Movies Day #55 "Dog Soldiers"
Watched this awhile back and then rewatched it last night. Very rarely do I find a film BETTER than I remember it and this was a pleasant surprise. Basically it's a small military squad versus a pack of nasty werewolves. Stars Sean Pertwee and Kevin McKidd. Sean has done a lot of cool genre flicks like "Equilibrium" and "Event Horizon" and Kevin is best known for his stints on "Rome" and "Grey's Anatomy" while video game nuts will recognize both with a special nod to Kevin for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as Soap.
This is definitely my favorite werewolf movie out there. Effects were great for the budget and Darren Morfitt goes out like a champ in a death scene that rivals Bill Paxton's epic badass death in Aliens. Lots of great moments and raw emotions in this one...and some cool guns to boot.
