Trivia

The look of the government offices , such as how the radio console, desks, and computers were set up, had to be as accurate as possible, although a few liberties were taken to accommodate visual style and camera movements. US Secret Service Agent Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas)'s White House office, for instance, would be very modular and functional, with a lot of paperwork and supervisory documents for signing, while the desk of the agent in charge of the detail would be clean, because he would have a staff to handle all his paper-work.

zombie movie
27 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Almost every plot detail in this movie is illogical and implausible. It carries no semblance of a genuine human story, dead and dull. It is a parody of Hollywood, with trumpet musical bits that remind you of a Denzel Washington movie, wobbly camera shots and focusing, racist stereotypes, absolutely unnecessary and comical shots and gestures of famous people in clothing catalogue poses. It is made to cater for the multitude of zombies whose meaning in life derives from watching celebrity names. The only good thing in the movie is the end credits and funky song that accompanies it. I feel like an idiot for watching this, save yourself.
