Of course, our hero Jane is the only survivor, and doesn't look too pretty when they finish with him, but he saves the day as hero do, even cynical, reluctant ones, and the aliens leave after he turns off their 'machine' that turns humans into claw-armed aliens. Don't ask how. And don't ask why. I don't remember if Jane is cured of his nihilism in the process. It doesn't matter. I just wish I could get my money back.
Other than that, it was dark, gloomy, apocalyptic, and had enough going on to keep a scifi junkie engrossed.
Some people knock the movie because there's no way a coal-driven technology could be that advanced .. right?
Wrong. It's all about driving the compressors. The whole technology is slapped together from old archives from the past. Notice the buried skyscrappers from our own era? So it's a lot of fun seeing this alternate technology thing in action.
It's scifi folks .. and it's a morality play .. ignore the things you can't explain and enjoy the show. I sure did.

The films setting has a definate steampunk feel with many of the early battle scenes having a the feel of WWI trench warfare. The weapons and flying vehicles in the film are steam powered. Most of the special effects are CGI driven but considering this title is a low budget B movie they work really well.
The Visual quality on Blu-Ray is very good. Occasionally you get a slight grainy feel but the whole setting for the movie is dark and steam filled so this is a by product of the setting and not a bad transfer. The Audio is HD DTS multichannel and is very good quality my small gripe would be that the sudden changes for whispered talk to artillery bombardment can have you grabbing for the remote to change adjust the sound level so i eventually used the autolevel feature on my blu ray player to help with this issue.
Extras on the disc are sparce but thats not unusual for a B movie release like this. There is a 25 minute making of with interviews with all the main cast which include Ron Pearlman Hellboy [Blu-ray] [2004 ],Devon Aoki(who played Miho in Sin City - 2-Disc Edition [Blu-ray] [2005 ] Sean Pertwee who seems to make a fair few B movie films like the excellent Dog Soldiers [DVD] [2002 ]. There is also 7 minutes of behind the scenes camera work
Nice to find something in the B movie range with a budget price.
All in all 1 hour and 45 minutes of good value B movie Fare.
