Well this is no "Dead Alive" (aka "Braindead") or "Shaun of the Dead", but it is a rather good attempt at a zombie comedy from Thailand. "Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis" goes a step or two too far into the extreme where they pass comedy and drops into downright stupidity at times. Which is a shame, because those moments really deliver a hard blow to the overall enjoyment of the movie.
Funny, I never knew that SARS turned people into zombies, but I guess it did in Thailand...
The story is about a bug escaping from Africa and making its way all the way to Thailand where it delivers a fatal bite to a guy and a zombie outbreak spreads rampart in an apartment building. In this building Khun Krabii is out to rescue Liu, the daughter of a rich man, while Master Thep has managed to sneak in there disguised as a member of the task force.
The characters in the movie are colorful and funny, and they are well brought to life on the screen by the actors and actresses hired to play them. The dialogue in the movie is funny as well and it is full of self-irony and one-liners. Which just adds to the enjoyment of this over-the-top zombie comedy.
As for the zombies in the movie, well then they were actually nicely made, although I didn't understand the reason for their vampiric fangs. That was just odd. As this is a comedy, don't except too much gore and mayhem. There is a little bit in the movie, just enough to make it clear that this is a zombie movie and enough to make it funny.
Vibrant characters, a fast-paced story, good effects and an overall crazy mood makes for "Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis" to be enjoyable and fun to watch.
