Storyline

The story follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado, who is on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama bin Laden is still alive, despite having been buried at sea. In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a team of NATO special forces on a secret assignment. Turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and that Osama has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists. When the group crashes headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must find and destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.

Surprisingly nice actually...

Having stumbled upon "Osombie" by sheer luck, I decided to give it a go. We got Abraham Lincoln battling zombies and vampires this year, so why not also have a zombie Osama Bin Laden as well? I thought this movie was going to be a comedy spoof, but it actually turned out to be a serious movie. So what is next this year? Saddam Zomsain? Anyway, the movie "Osombie" starts out with action and adrenaline right from the very beginning and doesn't let go before the end. This is a zombie movie that steps out from other regular zombie movie, in terms of the storyline and the fact that Osama Bin Laden is a zombie.

I enjoyed the movie, lots of action in it, and the action scenes were well executed and looks good. But what really worked was the zombie make-up. Lots of really nice detail here, and lots of great work on the make-up. The zombies looked really cool, and weren't just people with their faces painted gray. And the blood and gore effects were cool as well, lots of heads exploding all over.

The people cast for the roles were actually doing great jobs with their given roles and characters. The acting was good and believable, coming off nicely on the screen. People seemed to be enjoying what they were hired to do, and that showed off in their performances.

Now, there were some bad things about the movie as well, some flaws. For example, when did the American army allow their troopers to bring Katana swords with them into the incursion fields? And also, why did Chip have to take off his jacket and shirt all the time? That was just so stupid, and not really how a soldier would act in a situation like this. And to top it off, then suddenly there is a Katana training montage video with Tomboy in the middle of it all, it came out of nowhere and it made absolutely no sense. It was so lame.

But aside from these really stupid annoyances, then "Osombie" was actually a rather entertaining movie. And if you are a zombie aficionado, like me, then you definitely owe it to yourself to check it out. It is well worth a watch. However, the storyline about Osama Bin Laden as a zombie was a bit on the cheesy side though, but the action and the zombies more than made it up for that silly approach.

Being a non-American I did find the movie to be somewhat thick on pro-Americanism, waging war on terrorists even when they have come back from the grave. But hey, it is a movie, meant for entertaining, not being a political broadcasting channel.
