East End wide-boy Danny Dyer stars in this low-rent copy of Danny Boyle's 28 DAYS LATER, with infected zombie types racing around London and chowing down on unsuspecting passers-by. The twist in this one is that the zombies employ parkour, well in reality one or two of the same ones do, but it's hardly of the calibre seen in the likes of DISTRICT 13. In fact it's a random gimmick that adds nothing to the production whatsoever.
Dyer's thunder is completely stolen here by the presence of proper hard man Craig Fairbrass (CLIFFHANGER), playing a tough, Ray Stevenson lookalike who seems to spend the entire running time hitting zombies in the head with the hammer. Well, it's a way to make money. The production values are low rent but acceptable here, and there's certainly a fast pace to keep you occupied while the clichéd storyline plays out.
The supporting cast incorporates familiar faces like TV's MyAnna Buring (RIPPER STREET) playing somebody who might just hold the key to the cure for the zombie virus. Elsewhere, Sean Pertwee and Colin Salmon turn up for brief cameos early on, while DOOMSDAY villain Craig Conway bags a good guy role for a change. The production is similar in scope to the other Fairbrass starrer DEAD CERT, with the trade-off being that the humour is missing in favour of slightly better production values. Whatever way you look at it this is hardly the stuff of greatness, but it passes the time for the undemanding fan and it's certainly far from the worst zombie movie out there.
