I really like how the last review I read here said the poster was "blown away" by this movie. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what blew them away. Mediocrity, maybe? Hard to say, but that's about all this movie is chock full of. This movie plays like something that could be and may very well have been on The SyFy Channel (that's right...it's SyFy now and there's not a damn thing you can do about it). So if you've seen anything they've ever done you know you should be ready to roll your eyes at least a few times.
The plot is basically lifted from the few various zombie movie plots out there. In this case it's all about an alien virus that reanimates the dead and is unleashed by a series of military/government mishaps. Now my distrust for the federal government is as healthy or healthier than most people's but I have to believe they could take out one hapless guy with one small vile of *insert name of unidentified chemical agent here*. Whatever. The movie is pretty bland all over. No standout acting (or even adequate acting), the special effects are decent but nothing to write home about, and the story is pretty done to death.
The one remarkable thing about this film is how incredibly misleading the box art is. Seriously? It makes the movie look like it's completely action packed...with the guy holding the assault rifle and whatnot. Yeah...nothing even remotely like that happened in the movie. But I guess you have to sell blandness somehow.
