There is no hope
24 November 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

That is actually a tag line of the poster/cover of the movie. Are they trying to be funny? Or just telling/warning you right from the start? President Obama might have some entertaining moments in his career, but imagine what America would look like if it were actually run by Dr. Uwe Boll! Easy, it's just a movie (or it tries to be).

The filmmakers have a clear goal and they use a simple strategy. Something that has worked in the 80s, so why not use it again. But this let's put a group together and let them defy the odds motive cannot make you overlook all the mistakes and problems the movie has. One of them (due to budget reasons), is the lack of "extras"/infected. When you have to "barricade" yourself into a house, because of the "masses" outside, it doesn't really work, if there are just 10 people "roaming" a wide shot. They try their best to cover that up, but to no great avail.

If you have a soft spot for B (or is it C/D?) movies, you might find this more engaging than others (I do from time to time), but overall this has not that many memorable things (even the characters lack charisma, even if the actors try hard to give them an edge).
