Apocalypse ZZzzzzzz...
7 July 2013 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

3 mercenaries and an ex-soldier serving time in prison are recruited (with the promise of money and freedom) to plant a nuke in some place that no one's ever heard of where there has been a zombie outbreak due to government sanctioned experiments gone wrong (probably not news to you, reader). This is the American government and an American operation even though most of the people in this movie, including army and government personnel, are clearly not American. The best example is the fact that the American president was played by a guy with a kind of German accent which made me chuckle for a lot of reasons.

The zombies are fierce and ugly enough, I guess. I've got no complaints there. The fact that the producers could have simply made this movie about some other government operation other than American to accommodate the accents and give it some credibility doesn't even bother me that much. Nor even the cliché and uninventive script and scenario of a bunch of different personalities recruited to do a job. What I most cared about was the action. Good action can save a movie. I've seen it happen. Unfortunately that did not happen here.

The 4 people: ex-soldier (and bodybuilder), expert fighting woman (with 2 swords, no less), explosives expert (gregarious Scotsman) and sniper (French guy with a nose that looks like it's been hit too many times) are not very interesting. None of them were particularly good at what they are supposed to be expert at. The ex-soldier and bodybuilder didn't do too much with the zombies physically. He did manage to shoot a few so I'll give him credit for that....I guess. The expert fighting woman was more interesting when she said nothing. Later she became talkative and ruined the whole mystique by sounding stupid. Moreover, she had no fighting expertise that I could see. I'm fairly certain I (and you reader) could disarm her with a nail file. The explosive genius, who was built up like some kind of Mcguyver, only had plastic explosives with a timer on it which, when it went off, looked little more impressive than what you see when you take a picture with a flash bulb.

All the "explosions" in this movie were like that in fact. Finally, the sniper who supposedly was so good he could shoot a fly on earth from somewhere in space (okay, I'm exaggerating a little) was using a rifle that he had to crank with a big handle after every shot. A process that took about 10 seconds or more. Shoot...crank...aim...shoot, and so on. I'm surprised he didn't upend the thing and start pouring gunpowder down the barrel and then ramming it with a ramrod. Needless to say, reader, about 2 dozen zombies went through his defense every time he cranked. Notwithstanding, I have seen worse (Based on what I've read here some of you may find that hard to believe). I feel 3 stars is just about right. Love, Boloxxxi.
