It's been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world's population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable. Within the few surviving cities, the Re-Ans have been segregated into "zones" and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak.Written by
Truth be told, when I first read the summary of the movie, I wasn't all that big on what was possibly going to come my way and then I started to watch because we all have a little time on our hands to kind of sit there and watch something that we think might be crap, but has our interest anyway.
First off, the movie itself is about zombies - or "Re-Ans" as they call them. There's the usual conspiracy that the government were working with biological stuff and it got out of hand. There's the zombies and they run ... fast - who do zombie things: attack, kill, eat you and move on and then there's the teams deployed out to "re-kill" the "re-ans."
First watching it, I was mostly sitting with the movie just playing because it's a rather patched together piece of work. It's like watching TV with all the adverts and that's ... annoyingly well presented. The "sex - do it now" - adverts could have been dropped out, they were pretty much useless, but it's a B-movie so ...
But then the storyline came along. Now, for any zombie fans who like things like:
-The Last of Us -Resident Evil -Z-Nation -The Walking Dead -28 Days/Weeks Later
or basically any biological weapon film that induces us as humans out of a natural state of order to flesh-eating cannibal creatures that nearly destroy us completely - I'd recommend giving it a watch. It can be easily left to run while you get distracted, but the director has done a good job at kind of reeling you back in for just one second that makes you wonder how you got to this conclusion in the first place.
The characters - yeah. You don't really get attached to them, any of them, no matter if you feel sorry for them, it's not like you suddenly choose who your favorite is out of the squad. They're not a Daryl Dixon suddenly for you on first appearance, but when they die, they die good. There are a few jump scares if you really start paying attention ... but for a small movie, it's just another zombie invested thing.
Make up is good, the zombies are brilliant, the storyline could have used a bit more in-depth to it all but ... I'd recommend it to those who like watching the apocalypse - with zombies.
Don't forget about the sex adverts tho.
