Was this a spoof?...
5 June 2017 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I knew that I should have taken heed to the low rating that "Breakdown Lane" had managed to score here on IMDb. But it is a zombie movie after all, and that is really all that is needed to make me watch a movie. However, the market is unfortunately flooded with questionable entries in the zombie genre.

"Breakdown Lane" didn't break that mold, and it turned out to be just another low budget zombie movie with the heart resolute on trying, but failing to achieve anything.

This is definitely a B-movie in every meaning of the term. Low budget script writing, low budget special effects, low budget acting talents, well, you know how it goes.

The movie is incredibly slow paced and very, very little happened throughout the course of the movie. And that made it really difficult to sit through and watch it to the very end. And believe me, it was indeed a struggle to sit through this.

As for the script, well this pretty much sums it up; are you kidding me? Wow, the script for "Breakdown Lane" was definitely something else. And points for trying, but come on... It was just so far fetched that it was like it was a farce on the zombie genre.

It was so hard to take it serious that the day after an outbreak happen that people would resort to cannibalism. One day! There would be so much food at the stores and homes, it was just idiotic. And more so why would they say that they needed to breed and repopulate the Earth? Just how fast and effective was this outbreak? Talk about some major plot holes and lacks of writing anything worthwhile.

The zombie effects were laughable at best. But at least they were trying. And sadly so, because special effects are vital - pardon the pun - to a zombie movie to be effective. Here "Breakdown Lane" didn't come through.

"Breakdown Lane" is not a particularly impressive addition to the zombie movie gallery. And it is definitely not a movie that I will be returning to watch again, as it just didn't have any outstanding qualities to it. Actually, I gave up after about an hour of sitting through this slow paced ordeal, then I just tossed the towel in the ring.
