The type of microscope that is being used in several of the scenes to examine zombie specimens would not deliver the magnification seen on screen. It is a common compound light microscope with a maximum magnification of 400x (1000x if Lavar Burton's character was using oil immersion which he isn't). See more »

The plot isn't anything new. And the execution is pretty typical.
Mariel Hemmingway's acting was outright painful. Flat line delivery, and almost never with the proper emotion. Ethan Suplee isn't much better, but thankfully he doesn't have to say much. Lavar Burton is excellent, think the emotion of I Am Legend, without the kick-ass survivalist skills. By far the most noteworthy part of the movie. Danny Trejo is as Danny Trejo is, bad-ass. You won't be disappointed by him.
The effects are decent and the gore is quality.
If you enjoy watching formulaic zombie action movies with little cinematic value, this will deliver.
