Brilliant, Exciting, Bloody Good Fun
19 November 2017 | by walkertechieSee all my reviews

The perfect film for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I happen led upon this film today while looking for something interesting to watch. At first I was initially skeptical when reviewing the trailer and description. I was happy to see it staring Steven Yuen and Walking Dead Alumnus, Dallas Roberts aka Milton. But I feared this would probably suck as so many films staring former movie favorites do with type casting. Yet it I held out hope and boy I wasn't disappointed. Good to see Steven Yuen land on his feet in a starring role since his character Glenn got Lucille'd. What I found delightful was the excellent writing, gore, acting an social commentary. Who hasn't felt like punching your boss in the face. Yes the premise for the virus is a bit overblown and unrealistic, but who cares. The story carries well and it's fun to watch. We've all seen or had management types like those in real life, and it's the workers who suffer. Anyhow it was good to see they didn't try to rip off TWD, except for one part where someone's says a TWD famous painted statement. Fans will know it instantly when you hear it. I loved all the violence and gore scenes. Tastefully done without going overboard. Funny as hell with the banter between the characters. What's not to like here. Yes the ending was a bit anticlimactic but didn't ruin the film by any means. Overall it was just a joyful way to spend the afternoon. BTW, I don't get all the trolls on IMDb. The movie wasn't trying to win an Oscar. Honestly some folks have no life and just look for any shady reason to complain or criticize to be relevant. Good luck with that and just enjoy the show.
