Wonderful characters, wonderful graphics, and wonderful actors.... squandered. The completely uninteresting and ludicrous plot proved to much to overcome. The few good combat scenes are greatly outweighed by the crazy father murderer adoption genetic testing junk. Why not just stick to the classic Marvel story?? That's what made the other recent Marvel movies (X-Men, Spiderman, Daredevil) so enjoyable. Puny movie.
Despite some of the other's comments, this pales in comparison to any Fulci or Romero movie. But it is genuinely enjoyable. The zombies are very different and the gore is fairly well done. The story, especially the ending, is weak. And what the hell is with that demonic little kid? Yikes. Overall this is a pretty damn good movie. Any self respecting zombie movie fan should have this in their collection.
This is not Dawn of the Dead. It's not Night of the Living Dead. It's a low grade 70's Italian zombie gore flick. The acting is not great, the story is shaky, the dubbing is bad, and the clips of animals are completely off of the story. But you have to take this movie for what it is. It's got some good gore and is a fun movie if you're into zombies. It's not Shakespeare. It's campy and schlocky and goofy, and if you're looking for a true quality horror movie you should go elsewhere. But if you enjoy the Italian zombie genre, you'll enjoy this one. Just don't expect Oscar caliber.
