Firebase

{3.5/5} “Objects were put in your path to shield you, put there to protect you at exactly the right moment, to shield you from the right piece of shrapnel. It’s almost as if life itself knew you were coming. The universe keeping you alive, saving you, as though it has a plan for you.”

Firebase, released in 2017

It’s Vietnam in 1970 and something extremely strange happened at one American base. Soldiers turned into monsters who are invulnerable to bullets. People and tanks flew up into the sky. And there’s the River God. The CIA is covering it up, and at the same time trying to eliminate the threat.

This is another short movie from Neill Blomkamp, which is available on YouTube here:

Oats Studios – Volume 1 – Firebase

It’s not quite as interesting as I’d like, but it’s clearly the first part of a larger story. There are some gruesome scenes.

Directed by Neill Blomkamp (Rakka). The atmospheric music is by Lorne Balfe.
