In fact I was out to find the French movie "Mutants" but ran into this stinker on Blu Ray for a few euro's, new I mean. Cover looked okay, indeed a mutant reflecting in the glasses of a gas mask. Two names on it, Steven Bauer and Michael Ironside. Two famous names. First research, it's also called "Zombie Mutants" in Germany. Again, so far so good. But naturally, names and a DVD or Blu Ray sleeve doesn't make a good feature. And this is a perfect example. First of all, once the flick was over I thought, hell, where were those zombies? Secondly I thought, Jesus, I forgot to get scared. You can see it coming, bad as hell. Sadly not bad that it became good. It's watchable as a TV movie but to categorize it under horror, no way. The effects used are laughable. You can easily see that the infection on the skin is just add on the flesh. The mutants once they attack are just targets to be shot. Just look at it, once they are clearing the laboratory and the sugar plantation were all the experiments are being done you are just watching a game, shoot every mutant popping up. It's really boring because there's no suspense by doing that. Otherwise, some actors get shot but after 5 minutes they are walking around without any pain or limitations. And the shot wounds just look like a scratch. The best part was when Ironside is confronted with one of his friends trying to get him killed. But I must say, he's in real life getting old. I have met him twice at conventions and you could easily see him ageing. But the worst thing was when they showed one of the mutants transforming in a creature was done by CGI and one of the cheap ones. One explosion was also CGI, the flames were CGI, and it came up to me to state CGwhy? It wouldn't even fit into exploitation. No this was just a waste of time, I did it, no you don't do it. Go watch the French Mutant.
