changes from gore into war
22 May 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

So much pro's and much more contra's. I can understand why, it starts nicely with some kind of zombies attacking a person. It is really gory in some ways and the use of colors in post production via color grading made it a bit arty. It reminded me a bit of Walhalla Rising. There is even not that much spoken words but then the movie suddenly turns into a battle flick. It is somewhere between Resident Evil and I Am Legend and so much more so yes, we have seen it all before but the problem I had is that it as I said suddenly changed from gory zombie fights into normal fights. And the last part takes too much i this flick so it's more science fiction than horror. It do has his moments but somehow it couldn't really convince me.
