High hopes, and a fail to deliver..., 4 September 2011
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

Being a big fan of zombie movies, fiction, games, etc. I sat down to watch "Eaters" with a certain amount of expectation, because it was an Italian zombie movie, and it could be a glorious return to the genre for the Italian film industry.

Now, having seen the movie, I sit here with a somewhat empty feeling inside. The movie had potential, but it just never took off. It was always on the brink of climaxing, but it just failed to take you that one step beyond, the one step that would have tipped the scale.

And it should be said, that you shouldn't be avoiding this movie because of Uwe Boll's name on the credit list. He didn't have much to do with the movie actually. And lets face it, it is actually far better than the "House of the Dead" movie that he made. So don't get your parades up just because you see the name Uwe Boll. And on that note, he have actually some good movies to his name, but I am getting sidetracked here...

The story in "Eaters" is pretty much as in most other zombie movies. The world as we know it has come to a gory end, an only a handful of survivors are left fending for their very lives. Yeah, sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it? Oh, and throw in a deranged scientist bent on exploiting this to his own gain. Again, sounding awfully familiar. There is nothing in this movie that is groundbreaking and innovating. Everything has been seen before.

One thing that did puzzle me was why would neo-Nazis rise in the wake of a global disaster that turns people into zombies? That just didn't make any sense at all. However, I will say this though, the movie makers had a wicked sense of humor. When you see the new Führer, you will know what I mean. That was just hilarious.

The acting in "Eaters" is fairly adequate. Nothing extravagant or out of the ordinary to be seen here. However, I had a hard time buying into the Igor character's personality. He was just too one-dimensional, and he quickly became a tad too much to behold. Not the actor, but the Igor character in the movie.

There is a very gritty feel to the movie, with the surroundings and the colors used, and that worked well in favor of the movie. But it just wasn't enough to make it up for the slow pace the movie trotted in, nor was it able to make up for the lack of captivity or interest that the movie suffered from.

The zombies in the movie, well most of them anyway, looked cool. And the effects were nice. Certain zombies had really nice and interesting make-up work done. I like that in movies, where you get to see gory details and see how much effort has been put into the undead.

Hand on heart, then I actually dozed off once or twice during this movie, because nothing much interesting happened throughout the course of the movie. Nowhere near enough to keep my attention and my interest peaked.

I am glad that I have seen it though, being the zombie aficionado that I am. However, this particular zombie movie just didn't rock my world in the least. And it is not really a movie I will be making a second trip back to watch. It is worth giving a go, if you are a big fan of zombie movies, just don't get your hopes up too high.
