ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review With no money or resources, some guys from Britain went out and made a pretty bad-ass action movie...Following a convoluted bit of exposition narrated by Ian McKellan (sweet!), we learn that there are aliens running around Earth and a lethal, scruples-free paramilitary hit squad called Core, tracking said aliens down and killing them to death...At first glance, Displaced had all the signs of being a disposable zero-budget scifi/martial arts knockoff, but by the time this bad boy wrapped, I was impressed...Now, expectations in check, this isn't the second coming of The Matrix. It is still a small, direct-to-DVD effort, but on its merits Displaced is fun as hell. If you pick this one up not expecting a cornucopia of visual effects and gravity-defying stunt work, I think you'll be pleased. There are some weak points: the narrative throws a ton of exposition and mythology at you at once and tends to leave these threads hanging or lamely explained...But I think the positives outweigh the drawbacks...And the positives begin and end with the action...The sequences are hard-hitting and furious and not aided by CGI or wire work. Just dudes pounding on each other...Writer/director Martin Holland adds another check to the "positives" category with his kinetic direction, which immensely helps the fights and gives the overall film a slick, professional feel.
