Storyline

While a virus that causes the dead to reanimate brings the world to its knees, the scientist responsible entrusts his cataclysmic findings to Katya Nevin, a troubled ex-war correspondent turned anchor-woman at W.W News. While she and the rest of her crew witness the collapse of society via video feeds from around the globe, a deadly special agent climbs the building floor by floor, his only goal to ensure her silence. Armed only with information and an indomitable will to live, Katya must overcome her crippling anxiety and learn to lead in order to make it out of the studio and into a terrifying new world where only the dead survive.

A zombie movie with no bite...
9 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

No. Just no!

This is another one of those generic zombie movies that cash in on an establish movie in terms of its title, and has nothing to do with that aforementioned movie.

"Dawning of the Dead" was generic in every sense, the storyline was so predictable that you saw it coming a mile away. And since the directors opted to throw no curveballs or put in any twists or surprises, then it was just a straightforward, albeit very generic ride.

The zombie make-up was nothing extravagant, but at least they didn't succumb to the horrible B-movie mistake of just painting the faces gray and forgetting about the rest of the body.

Personally I find running zombies a major no-go in the zombie genre, and guess what? Yeah! There were running zombies here in "Dawning of the Dead" (aka "Apocalypse").

The characters in the movie were fairly generic too, although the did differ from one another. But it was ultimately just characters that you didn't bond with or felt empathy for. So when they died, you just shrug and move on.

I managed to finish this movie but can honestly say that I will not return to this zombie movie a second time.
