I'll have one action burger with extra cheese thanks.
19 April 2005 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

There are two kinds of high ratings I tend to give to films: one for very good films and the other for films that are so terrible that they are actually truly wonderful. Deadly Outbreak falls firmly into the latter category.

This is one of two films I collectively remembered as "The Serbian bus movies". The reason being that I saw this film on a bus from Leskovac to Beograd, playing on a cruddy Kambrook TV/video held together by a leather belt and hanging from the roof of the bus. The film was dubbed in English with Cyrillic subtitles and sported its alternative title of Deadly Takeover - a truly surreal experience.

The movie should have come off as a sad and laughable 'almost' action film. However, Avery manages to combine its clichéd stick-to-formula plot, plywood cast, and recycled script into something much greater than it's individual parts.

Jeff Speakman reminded me of a Bruce Boxleitner look-a-like who'd indulged in one too many sprays from his bottle of 'eau de charisma'. But how could he go wrong with such classic enduring lines as: "This party sucks. There's not enough ice-cream, and way too many clowns!" Rochelle Swanson as the intelligent, ingenious biochemist, Dr Allie Levin, manages to fool us into believing her nothing but a simple bimbo who continually fails in her attempts to aid our leading man. Well done. Ron Silver is our antagonist in this film and is, well, what can I say, Ron Silver. I'm sure he isn't really a bad man. Does he remind anyone else of Clayton from the TV series Benson? Overall a highly enjoyable experience, more comedy than action, if you are the kind of person who thrives on hearty B-Grade attempts at popular film genres.
