When I saw the SyFy logo I must admit that my hopes and excitement went tumbling down fast, but still I wanted to watch this as it is a zombie movie - and I am a sucker for anything zombie. So I mustered up and sat through this movie, which actually turned out to be a rather nice surprise for a SyFy Channel original movie. So don't let the SyFy logo scare you away from watching the movie.
Sure, this movie borrows heavily, and I emphasize heavily, from the hit series from AMC "The Walking Dead", to the point where it almost becomes embarrassing to watch. But still, for a SyFy movie, then they really went all in with the production of this movie and managed to muster something that is rarely seen from their production line.
The zombies actually looked quite good and had interesting make-up, so it was a nice to see that they had spent some money on make-up and special effects.
There is a handful of semi-famous actor and actresses in the movie, but despite this, then the movie, acting-wise, was nothing impressive, and didn't really manage to rise over mediocrity.
I didn't fully understand the concept of why the zombies in this movie felt pain, it just didn't really work well on any account.
However, in overall, then "Rise of the Zombies" is actually a good enough movie to watch for any zombie fans. It is nothing extraordinary or exceptional, but still worth a watch.
