Trailer for the Bandito Bros. Prototype is a surprisingly cool-looking sci-fi romp

Jun. 21, 2012by: Paul Shirey

After a decent hit with ACT OF VALOR earlier this year, the production house known as The Bandito Brothers is at it again, this time with the sci-fi actioner PROTOTYPE.  Written and directed by Andrew Will, the film stars Neal McDonough, Joseph Mawle, and Anna Anissimova.  The pic centers on a rogue humanoid-robot being hunted by the government and has a very videogame-like feel to it, which isn't necesarily a bad thing.

Take a look:

This shows a lot of promise and could very well be another breakout hit for The Bandito Brothers.  Made for $40 million, the film will benefit from a lower budget if it can take hold with audiences and help propel the production company further into the Hollywood game.  Currently, The Bandito Brothers are prepping the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle UNKNOWN SOLDIER and a NEED FOR SPEED film, based on the game. 

PROTOTYPE will be released sometime in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: The "prototype" in this looks like a hybrid of the villain Kroenen from Hellboy and the weird creatures from the animated film 9. What do you guys think?

This film doesn't even exist yet.

This film doesn't even exist yet, it's a proof of concept trailer.

It looks a little like the cheap action movies from late 80's and early 90's, even the cheesy title reminds me of that. It's not a bad thing actually, but it's going to suffer from terrible acting

And yep, the suit looks almost exactly like the one in Crysis
PS. I guess I'm the only one who actually enjoys the new layout.

Looks decent but the action is a little simplified. And isnt that Kroenen's helmet from Hellboy

Looks kinda good. Like a sort of mix between the nanosuit from the Crysis games and Robocop.

Nice Helmet!

When i looked at the pictures for the first time i thought it was a ''Crysis'' movie, wich would be great if you ask me. Anyway, the trailer looks good, but i hope we can get more action footage!!

The special effects are pretty good and I like the idea, but it also plays off like some kind of video game. Could be a good sci-fi actioner, but it could also just as easily be a lame B film.
