Battleground – Bluray Review

From Dimeworth Films and Mojo Promotions, Battleground was originally titled Skeleton Lake and is an Action-Horror-Thriller which pits six well-armed ruthless bank robbers against a single man from the Vietnam War who never got over the war. Hugh Lambe, who plays Hunter in this film, hunts down the six bank robbers not for the millions of dollars they stole, nor to help the police, but for sport. The six bank robbers are only 2 miles away from the highway and armed to the teeth, will all or even some of the robbers escape the crazed hunter capture and kill them all once at a time?

The story behind the Battleground is six experienced bank robbers just knocked over a bank and now are on the run. An outsider tells them to stay off the road and he knows a place to hideout down the highway, the bank robber have no choice but to head into the forest and stay in a abandon house for the night. While in the abandon house they start to turn on each other and their numbers dwindle down to five. Yet in the middle of the night their getaway car gets stole and they are forced to walk back to the highway. While they start their trek to the highway, is when the hunter makes him knowing and starts to pick off the robbers. It becomes team robbers against a “ghost in the woods,” during this the robbers find a girl which had been on the run from the hunter after seeing her boyfriend get murdered by the hunter. After a couple hours we learn the hunter has been killing for some time now in the forest and has some interesting habits after he gets his kills.

As for the acting in Battleground, well that is the real ghost in the woods. Everyone is so bland during the movie; the hunter does not show emotion whatsoever, I understand which he normally shouldn’t at all. But when he is shot or running through the woods or even doing something he is doing, he might show a little something and not be a robot. It doesn’t not help the situation when the hunter has only a hand full of lines in the whole movie, which includes a lullaby. Same thing goes with a character named Texas; he never once removes his sunglasses, even in a next to pitch black room in the middle of the night. As for the additional bank robbers, they too have very little motion, from dying or just escaping death or anything in general, they really don’t seem like they even really care. The most emotion you get is out of the girl who is found in the woods when she is crying and always looking like a scared animal. The only thing driving this movie is the fact that they are dying off and they want their money.

Overall Battleground is a sub-par movie, the acting was never really there to begin with. The story-telling was very minimal and nothing was really pushing the story forward besides the film itself. Even the sound in the movie was poorly done, when you make an AK-47, M4 and suppressed Mac-10 sound all the same in a tunnel, you didn’t bother do take time and looking into what they would even sound like. Best parts of the movie came when some of the robbers met their demise in inventive ways.

BATTLEGROUND (BLU-RAY) REVIEW

Gaming Illustrated RATING

Overall52%

ENTERTAINMENT5

Sub-par movie all the way around, nothing special about it, over used story-line with typical villains and silent killer doing some crazy things.

EXTRAS7

Some decent stuff here but nothing all that exciting.

STORY5

We have seen this story countless times, group of robbers against someone who is either crazy or righteous or just trying to survive.

ACTING4

Could have been a lot better, do you some funny faces though when some of the people die.
