Jack County was like any other Texas town in the Bible belt. It was a place where your soul meant more than your paycheck and where the little things in life mattered most. Churches were as common as gas stations. The corner store, the local watering hole and the barbershop were where friendly neighbors convened… until Demons from Hell showed up and took over the town. Now there’s no stopping them. And if they can take over Jack County, what’s next? But when a group of Navy SEALS are sent undercover and enlist the help of local bikers to take the town back, it’s a race against the clock to save Jack County (and the rest of humanity) and all hell is about to break loose! From the Producers of Navy Seals vs. Zombies, and starring real life Navy Seals and Special Forces Operatives.
Navy Seals v Demons huh? Well, I got to admit the title at least had me slightly curious about what would be on the other side of that title. Now having seen it for myself, I’m afraid to say we don’t have too much. Basically we have some demons killing and gutting folks so a rag tag team of seals sent in to handle the job unsure if they are dealing with real demons or not. They arrive in town, fight the locals, and buddy up with some of the strippers and then we are off to the main conflict with some new stuff being revealed. We have some battling, we have some demons, but the movie does feel lacking. Maybe it was held back by the budget? Maybe it was due to some of the characters being a little too cartoonish for their own good. Regardless, the movie fails to ever hit the 3rd gear and even in the last act seems to be a bit stuck.
In a world that has given us everything from Big Foot fighting zombies to Ninjas battling Vampires, one key thing to keep in mind is that they (more or less) delivered on what they were advertising. While I never did expect a full blown war here due to the budget, I did expect more than what we got. I expect a bit more blood than we got as well. I like our lead well enough, but even his cool factor isn’t enough to fully bring this one over the recommendation side of the review. If you want to add another title to your list of “vs” films, then you at least get that here with Navy Seals v Demons. You just don’t really get anything else.
