An old man, his walker and a city full of zombies...
22 April 2012 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"City of Rott" is a very ambitious project, and it ultimately turned out to be quite alright in the end. For an animated movie of this type, "City of Rott" is rather entertaining.

We follow the old man Fred who is on the streets of the city looking for a pair of new shoes. Fred is not all by sound mind. And the city is filled with the walking dead, rotting corpses controlled by worms.

Now what made "City of Rott" work out well enough was the sheer amount of gore and mayhem. Sure, it is animated, but there was something oddly fulfilling by seeing Fred dispose of the zombies with his walker. And the sounds were good as well.

The story, well that was a bit under average, because it wasn't really all that believable. For two-thirds of the movie, the story does have coherency and it is semi-alright, but then at the last third of the movie, it starts to stagger and the story jumps around a lot, letting us follow different people that seemingly have very little to do with the main story. Time filler perhaps?

As for the animation itself, well the style used here is not what you'd otherwise see in Anime, cartoons from the 80's and 90's, but it is more in the likes of Flash animated movies as seen on the Internet. There is a lot of using the same figures over and over, but in overall, that was a minor flaw in the animated movie.

"City of Rott" is worth watching more than once, though years should pass in between the watchings.
