Rating: 1/5 -- Stylized, slapdash sci-fi bloodbath is gory and grim. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- It's photogenic people killing mutants before green screens; what more could you ask? Full Review
Los Angeles Times

Rating: 1/5 -- A cranium-pulverisingly dull and badly acted sci-fi action non-thriller. Full Review

I dearly hope John Malkovich got paid handsomely for his two days of embarrassment on-set. Full Review
Village Voice
Apr 22, 2009
Rating: 2/5 -- Shoestring special effects and flimsy storytelling make Mutant Chronicles a B-movie fantasy in search of an old Times Square moviehouse. Full Review
Boxoffice Magazine
Apr 27, 2009
Rating: D+ -- This movie is lost from the start and never finds its way. Plays like a video game with repetitive special effects and wooden dialogue. Full Review

The production notes describe this as an epic sci-fi action thriller like no other, which is on every level a blessing - it's like being dropped into a tar pit of underlit tedium. Full Review

Product Description:

Here's a retro-futurist fantasy set in a post-apocalyptic 2707, with steam-powered airships, battling corporations circa World War I, and tales of an ancient race buried deep in the bowels of the earth. During a blistering battle between the Bauhaus and Capitol corporations, the seal on an ancient machine is accidentally re-started and the mutants come running out of the hole, quickly reducing most of the earth to blood-splattered ruins. Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) plays a devout spiritual leader who holds a sacred text revealing how to stop the machine, and he needs a few good men (and women) to accompany him into the bowels of mutant hell. Thomas Jane (THE MIST) is the head tough-guy who helps him, along with a handpicked team that includes two sword-slinging babes (Devon Aoki and Anna Walton). Completely impervious to pain and with deadly blades instead of hands, the mutants are fearless enemies who swarm like a mix of the monsters in THE TERMINATOR and 28 DAYS LATER. Devotees of the steampunk genre and/or the post-apocalyptic spelunking of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, ALIENS, and THE DESCENT will dig it, and for bonus points there's John Malkovich as the weary leader of the free world. MUTANT CHRONICLES is based on a 1993 role-playing game that's grown to include card games, role-playing modules, and the video game "Doom Troopers."
