Storyline

In an undefined future, the earth has been destroyed by man, and the air polluted with a mysterious virus that turns humans into zombies. Only a few children are immune to the disease and have adapted to these extreme conditions and survived. Camille, a nine year old girl wanders through these desolate wastelands, protecting herself from zombies and the armed military forces that roam the land killing anyone who might be infected. However, the little girl will find other kids like her that share a recurring dream of: they all have visions of the ocean as their destiny. Together they will try to survive the journey to the ocean in search of an escape from the military who seem to be as determined on their destruction as on the zombies.

I'm being nice because I like this genre...
31 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of post-apocalyptic/zombie films so I figured this would be right up my alley. I may have misjudged...

So the film is basically an hour and thirteen minutes of watching a young girl walk through various desolate scenes devoid of any emotion. I can't say she's a bad actor because really at no point does she need to act. As long as she kept walking, the crew kept filming.

It's visually very boring on the eyes. They tried this Schindler's List/Sin City effect where mostly ever shot has a low saturation making it nearly black and white EXCEPT for blood which is vividly bright red. And it would "splatter" on the camera in every action scene much like a video game from 10 years ago. For some reason, I'm now craving cherry Kool-Aid.

The film is riddled with flashbacks that you're forced to witness multiple times for lengthy durations, while not really contributing to any story or character development. It's not very endearing...

The blood and zombie special effects were tolerable but as you'll learn, the zombies are no threat to the main character therefore there is no real terror as a viewer either. I watched this by myself in the dark with headphones on and never once was frightened to any degree.

I must say that the opening sequence was the best part of the film. It was creative and had a unique charm to it. As sudden as it came, the charm was gone. On the flip side, the ending credits were pretty cool too.

Overall, this really isn't worth your time but it is a relatively short film so be my guest. Just remember that you have been warned. If you do have the patience to get through the entire movie, I must inform you that there is one last scene after the credits, which unsuccessfully tries to give you the back story of how the world came to be. Enjoy! -- 4/10 --
