It's been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world's population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable.

Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak. Written by
First thing's first; if you hate shaky-cam then you won't be able to stand this movie, because there is a lot of it. Otherwise this is a great zombie movie that draws heavily from Starship Troopers to give a satirical look at a zombie apocalypse via reality shows, news reports and commercials.
The acting and writing are both decent and make for an enjoyable experience overall, again if it falls down anywhere it is in the action scenes where the attempt to give a realistic feel to being in such a situation leads to a lot of confusing and sickly camera movements. There is certainly something to be said for the film's commitment to its world and dedication to putting its audience into the action.
Overall the segments away from the main story make this worth watching, and the main segment itself is pretty compelling if you can look past the occasional camera craziness. A sequel with a bigger budget could do really well for itself and this could easily turn into a fun horror franchise if the standards are kept up.
