Plot: What’s it about?
The world is in ruins, but the struggle for power never ends. The lands are ruled over by powerful warlords, who constantly engage in battles over territory, supplies, and leadership. This doesn’t provide much of a life for the common people, since those in power tend to be the only ones well taken care of. Tired of the poor living conditions and being trampled over by the warlords, a group of soldiers decides to take action. The plan is not to attack the warlords, instead to steal a sizable amount of treasure from one, then vanish. With enough resources at their disposal, the soldiers can venture into new lands and start new lives. But the plan doesn’t go perfectly, which forces them to improvise and travel into the Shadowlands. This is a place where few would dare to get close to, but now the soldiers have to endure whatever awaits within. With both the forces of the warlord and the Shadowland’s dangers, can the soldiers survive and be able to forge new, better lives?
Video: How does it look?
Dark Nemesis is presented in 1.78:1 widescreen. This transfer looks quite good, given the film’s production limitations. The visuals show off a crisp level of detail and while that exposes the special effects somewhat, it isn’t a serious concern. I found colors to be natural and free from errors, while contrast is stark and consistent. All things considered, this is a more than capable presentation.
Audio: How does it sound?
This Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is rock solid. The power isn’t going to rattle your windows, but it has enough kick to handle the film’s sound design needs. The action oriented scenes give the best presence, with good power to drive home the atmosphere. The vocals aren’t lost in the shuffle however, while the music sounds quite good as well. So all in all, a more than capable soundtrack. This disc also includes English subtitles.
Supplements: What are the extras?
This disc includes the film’s trailer.
