Storyline

Hong Kong's answer to George Romero's Dawn Of The Dead. A soft drink tainted with "Iraqi bio-chemicals" has the power to turn people into flesh-eating zombies. Gangsters smuggle it into HK, only to become instant zombie prey. One of the gang escapes with the bottle, but is run over by two young VCD sellers and wannabe petty criminals (Woody Invincible and Crazy Bee) returning to their mall shop in their bosses' car. Trying to revive him, they give him a drink of what they think is Lucosade. With him seemingly dead and unsure of what to do, they bring the corpse back to the mall with them in the boot of their car. They make the mistake of leaving the boot open. And, pretty soon, the mall is crawling with zombies. The odd couple and a bunch of other mall employees have to bond together to try and fight their way out.

Great fun
7 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is great fun! I read a comment that said it was like mallrats with zombies, which is exactly what i thought while watching. The two main characters Bee (Sam Lee - who is on his usually funny form) and Jordan Chan's Invincible, while being both entertaining, offensive and lacking morals (they don't worry about mugging people, running people over or generally bullying people) do show some redeeming qualities towards the end (Bee -"I don't want to be a zombie, i'd rather die" what a line!). OK so the zombie (sub)plot does take a while to get in place, but the comedy does provide entertainment up until the zombies all start shuffling in. The pacing is great, with scenes of tension (the handcuff key in mouth scene)and cheesy emotion (The Sushi zombie giving a present to that girl) pushing along the narrative and character development to a good standard. Before watching it i was expecting a gore-fest, but gore fans will be disappointed, scenes of zombie-culling are quite brief and restrained, but fans of comedy-horror or zombie films should enjoy. To be honest the film does play as a bit of a spoof with moments of clichéd and cheesy emotion and the whole computer game idea towards the end. Although the ending does shaft the comedy element for emotion (although i think its played for laughs) and the ending is a bit of shock, it is overall an enjoyable experience and if you do enjoy this check out Peter Jackson's Braindead!
