Returning to his hometown for the first time since his big money move to the professional leagues, Sam Lorit expects a joyful homecoming and a routine cup-game victory. But with the zombie outbreak fueling bitter rivalries, the players and their entourage are dragged into a brutal game for their lives.Written by
There have been numerous undead/zombie movies over the years, but none combined them with soccer/football. This french comedy tries it and has a decent stab at it. The story is not worth mentioning (with "twists" in relationship and character connections so obvious, you'd guess them even if someone stole/ate your brain), the characters mostly nicely but cliché filled drawn.
There are a few gags that really work and it does have a lot violence/blood in it too. Now that's either something you'll cherish or would have liked to see less off. Football in general is violent as some would say and quite a few have drawn comparisons with going to war (though that rings true with other team based sports too) ... this one takes it one further. No clear winner then, but still decent enough to enjoy during the World Cup in Brazil (or any other time)
