Dreary and derivative zombie film
27 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had hopes for this film, which sadly it did not really live up to. It puts up a good effort and though unoriginal, takes its inspiration from good sources, but ultimately does not succeed in creating much more than a kinda lame, vaguely watchable but unimpressive time. The plot sees experimentation on trees give rise to a zombie outbreak, and the son of the head of the logging company involved heads into the forest to find out whats going on when contact is lost. Hooking up with a bunch of loggers and anti logging protesters, the film then becomes about survival. The film seems to be sourced from a number of superior films, with the final block somewhat reminiscent of 28 Days Later. It also has the unfortunate recent staple of shaking the camera around like a mad thing during the zombie attacks, which is perhaps the main thing that sunk the film for me. The performances are fair enough at best, the script is OK if predictable, and the photography has a nice bleak look to it, but the film is not only fatally low on gore, but the majority of the zombie attacks are ineptly filmed and irritating to watch. The film denies the viewer even the satisfaction of clear sights of people being dragged away screaming to their doom and there are only a few shots of innard munching on the already dead, certainly none of the fun nastiness of any of the classic zombie films. The film didn't even need to be especially gruesome but the crazy shaky cam work ruins a lot of supposedly exciting scenes. By the end, I really wasn't that interested in the film, nothing is surprising, there is little depth and the characters aren't intriguing enough to carry the film. Aside from the characters of Tyler, the executives son and Mac, the head of the loggers, nicely played by Paul Campbell and Julian Christopher respectively none of the characters are even very sympathetic either. The main environmentalist is kinda lame and there is a character called Carter who is eminently punchable throughout. There are a few gruesome bullet wounds to keep this just above the threshold of inordinately anaemic, but it doesn't do too much good. If you can get around the poor camera work in some of the scenes there is some fun to be had and there are a few cool moments splashed over the course of the film but in the end I found this to be a pretty weak film. Not terrible, but still not a film that I can recommend, sadly.
