When there is no enemy within the enemies outside cannot hurt you.
The catchphrase is genius, as was the original title: Belly of The Bulldog (Bulldog as in the tank). The movie... it could have been.
A bunch of people - soldiers and prisoners, wake up in a forest fog, and run onto a field to find a tank. They enter, and get locked inside, and that's where the whole movie plays out. There's paranoia, claustrophobia, craze, and sudden death, and for a B-movie all of this plays out surprisingly well, and yet there's not really any substance. It leads nowhere. The actors are good enough, the settings hazy and desolate, and in the end... it starts again.
It's surprisingly well-choreographed, and acted, and with a great setting, but no meat on the plotbones. Or dialogbones. Or characters. The little there is gets blown up or runs under the tank. It's all just... bones. I feel like if they'd spent more time in their think tank and put together a better script, this could've been more than a B-movie, because everything else surpassed my expectations Even the no-name actors.
rated 3/5: not bad
