Run Time: 97 Minutes

When I read 97 minutes, I could not believe it. When I watched this movie on AMC network, it felt as if half a day had gone by. That is not to say it was very atrocious like the previously reviewed Helldriver but this film did not feel fun on the first viewing.  I kept zoning out.  Lena Headey and Piper Perabo  were not utilized to their best though one of them (spoiler alert) got a chance to play bad ass in one of the scenes.  The tropes in this movie were really cliche (I figured the ending  a mile away yet it did not feel like a good pay off) and the CHUDS (cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers) were not as spectacular as the ones in the Descent.
