Admirable Effort
29 March 2017 | by krgrkSee all my reviews

First off, this is not connected to the Resident Evil franchise, nor should the title throw you off in case you're thinking of the original title of the franchise, Biohazard. This is an independent take on the genre of bio weaponry and government conspiracy, plain and simple. It's very scientific with necessary awkward moments that are showcased nicely with a decent acting performance.

This film is an hour and 8 minutes long, and as short and sweet as the running time, the plot is straightforward, but that's the plot. This short underground film is meant to administer a cerebral punch to your thinking brain if you pay close attention to the dialogue.

If anything, this alternate version of something made popular is best seen as a homage to anything and everything zombie fandoms that mostly involve a scientific explanation. This isn't a zombie flick nor an attempt to do something better than what's out there. Underground films and fan-made material can surprise you with the detail between the plot scenes, but most people fail to appreciate certain entertainment products. This movie's an example of this. The writers and producers had a mandate to ensure that this was not designed for general appeal, which means mediocrity isn't fit to criticize unless you speak the language of the themes of the movie. It also manages to keep the zombie genre fresh by using a simplistic script design.

This deserves a solid 8.
