Breaking from the classics was a mistake
11 April 2006 | by (Brandon, Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

The first two Return of the Living Dead films were camp classics. I have yet to find a copy of RotLD 3, so no judgment there.

Necropolis is simply a bad film. The acting is sub-par even for the genre, the make-up and effects are nothing new, elements of the story and even the visuals are lifted almost directly from other films,in particular the existing Resident Evil films.

The best part of this film was watching the crew outtakes that roll during the credits. If they'd just made 2 hours of guys in zombie makeup goofing around, it would have been more worth watching.

I sincerely hope that this film doesn't set a bad precedent for the Romanian and Ukranian crews involved in its making.
