What's it about
American soldier stereotypes fight Taliban. American soldiers end up battling giant sand worms.
Is it good movie?
Well, I feel like Iíve reviewed this before when I reviewed Wyvern a few months ago. Unfortunately for me, thatís not the case because this one has decided to rear its ugly head, leaving me with a lame Tremors knockoff that just doesnít need to exist for any reason I can think of anyway.

Youíve got stupid stereotypical soldiers- mouthy, complainer, gruff leader, ethnic homeboy and ďIím not even supposed to be here todayĒ guy. They are in Afghanistan and they encounter more than the foreign bad guys. They encounter giant, CGI sandworms. The works hear sound and feel vibrations, and pop out of the ground like hungry worm-things.

Thatís about all there is to it, the worms look pretty good, but this is again TV-quality material that requires suspension of disbelief. After that itís all the same old crap: stupid dialogue, situations where you scream at the stupid characters and smack your forehead, and a lot of pointless drudgery that leaves you begging for the characters to be killed.

I guess the acting is okay, but if you watch a movie called Sand Serpents to see acting, youíre crazy. Some people might like that the plot is more Ďrelevantí because of the war scene, but I thought it felt tacky. Everything about this movie is mediocre as can be, and I bet your tastes will likely waver only slightly from my own.

Hope you like trailers, cause you get some for Carny, Rise of the Gargoyles, Sea Beast, and Backwoods.

Last Call
At the end of the day, this is just another lame TV movie with an idea that has been ripped from a better lame theatrical movie. Itís not complete garbage, but you could throw a dart in any horror section and hit a better flick than this.
