I'd rather watch 27 Dresses...
5 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

...then ever watch Risen again.

I'm fairly unbiased when it comes to zombie flicks. I mean, I even own the Zombie King series so that says quite a bit. But disappointment can't even begin to explain the dirty feeling that Risen left in my brainpan.

Plot synopsis? Sure! Outbreak occurs, family loses child, must find child. I hope they didn't pay their writer.

Acting? Nah, hope they didn't pay their actors either.

Special effects? Whoa, also no; very much on par with Day of the Dead: Contagion in that everything just looks like fake blood, and a point that would seem so crucial to a zombie movie was missed entirely: the zombies don't look dead at all.

I drove a long way to Chicago, as I do every year, to see this and a few other flicks. Before driving back next year I'll be sure to check IMDb and ensure that no-one from Risen was involved with any of the films so I know to save myself a 10 hour drive.
