Marshall of the Legion

"Dog Soldiers" were rather decent, but couldna shake the feeling the whole film was just a build up to the best Matrix reference ever.

With Dog Soldiers I think anyone who isn't a member of (or at least has a knowledge of) the British Territorial Army is probably missing a lot of what is so fantastic about the film.

I sat and watched it for the first time in barracks with a group of fellow TA Officer Candidates and it was spot-on in the way it captures what life is like in that organisation. They were not so much hard-bitten professional soldiers, but guys with normal jobs who are 'weekend warriors' trying to survive against something which killed off a group of special forces full-time professionals.

I wouldn't be surprised if Marshall was either in the TA or had some very good advisors!
