I don't want to hype this up too much, but it's brilliant
1 August 2002 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I thought Dawn of the Dead would never be toppled from the Best Zombie Movie perch.

Junk, What a Movie! If you are a fan of Zombie movies, this is definitely for you. Four people go to an old abandoned factory to meat a group of yakusuna, to make a deal for jewellery they have just robed in a heist from a jewellery store. Little do they know that this factory was the scene of experiments carried out by the US military on brining the dead back to life.

Of course these dead didn't come back as normal folk, they came back as blood thirsty Zombies. I don't think I will be giving any thing away when I say that when the Yukusna turn up, al hell brakes loose. Boosting some great Splatter effects, and fine gore, (if you like that kind of thing).

I watch a lot of movies, and I often find myself looking at the time, wondering when is this movie over. Junk however I just didn't want to end, I hope they make a sequel; I for one will definitely be tracking it down if they do.

This movie is what Resident Evil should have been. I can see a lot of similar points in the game and Junk.

Some minor complaints are that the English spoken segments are not as well acted; maybe they used a different director. Also one of the Japanese who can speak English is not very good, it is very hard to understand him. They should have used subtitles for him. Also the film is too short, less then 80min.

I think that is a good complaint, that the film is too short. It leaves you wanting more. Find this film you will not be disappointed it kicks ass. Move over Dawn of the Dead, your time at the top was long, but there is a new Champion. 10/10
