As the world succumbs to a zombie apocalypse, Cole, a hardened mercenary, is chasing the one person who can provide a cure. In his way aren't only the flesh-eating, super-athletic cannibals as humanity's greatest danger, but people themselves! Written by
When an experimental drug turns the trial recipients into blood-crazed zombies and manage to overrun London, a small band of survivors must found out why one of their own who was subjected as well never turned and what it could mean to stop the epidemic.
Overall this one was a fairly decent British zombie effort which isn't all that bad overall and does have some good stuff going for it. Among the best elements featured here is that the pace of the film gives this one some nice action scenes as it manages to move along with the attacks fairly nicely in that regard from scenes of the massive swarm overrunning their victims to single zombies against the group which makes it that much more enjoyable. The beginning here when the deformity gets loose in the facility gets this one going nicely as well as the resulting overrunning of the guards as he tries to blast through the crowds, the street battle of the swarm taking to the streets bring the victims out of their cars and attacking those stranded on the sidewalks while the most fun is had out in the woods which has a lot of great parts here. The initial attacks come from solo, one-on-one battles against the creatures throughout the autoshop which is fun with the big fighting but gets fun with the swarm appearing and generating plenty of enjoyable times here as they come running out of the woods spilling into the camp and over the vehicles while requiring the fun of the hand-to- hand brawls in order to hold them off. Likewise, the finale here is all sorts of fun with the mad road dash through the city streets filled with creatures, the big brawls at the helicopter pad and the full-on swarming that overruns the group's helicopter pad forcing a huge fight to hold them off while the others get to safety during the fights which make for a really fun time here. That also provides some nice highlights mainly in the blood-and-gore department as well as there's some pretty gruesome attacks in this one that really lets the blood flow here in the brutal attacks from the creatures and the vicious tactics to hold them down. The zombies look good enough and are given a good enough look throughout that holds up over the film's biggest issue. The one factor here that brings it down is the zombies' behavior, since not only is this one filled with rather clumsy action but also manages to follow the utterly stupid look of running zombies which move and run about as ninjas the way they bounce around walls here, making for a thoroughly dissatisfying taste. It's not enough to be completely disruptive of the movie, but it's enough to knock it down some against the positives.
Rated R: Graphic Violence and Excessive Graphic Language.
