Underwhelming if still enjoyable South African zombie effort
Waking up in a South African hospital, an American tourist scheduled to undergo an operation at the facility finds it overrun as part of a massive zombie epidemic in the country and must try to get several other survivors out of the area teeming with zombies in order to survive.
This one proved to be a rather decent zombie effort. One of it's better qualities is the rather startling setup to this one that offers up a pretty enjoyable overall setting for this one. With the setup of the hospital at the center for the zombie epidemic, there's a lot of fun to be had here in the first half getting to the outbreak showing the guy getting out of the hospital during surgery and trying to escape from the darkened building with the other survivors as the creatures are showing coming through the corridors of the building. With a minor pitstop on the way that provides some nice action as they start on their journey into the desert and forests of the area, this one picks up in the abandoned village where it features a little more action and urgency with the zombies becoming much of a prominent figure in the events that play out providing some solid tension and action in here. From the race to get the brother out of the infected-filled village to the arrival at the second town and the race to trap the creatures inside in order to escape without incident, these here are more than enough to give this enough to like of its flaws. The main issue holding this one back is the fact that there's not much happening throughout here. The idea of them wandering around in the forest with their relationship drama and the revelations that spring up which aren't in the slightest bit interesting to see play out at all here. Rather than focus on the zombies, these scenes of the group wandering through the trees and forested areas of the wilderness don't focus on anything remotely enjoyable and just cause this one to be quite bland and dull. A lot of this is due to the feeling like the film is unfinished, as if it's missing an entire act of the story to make things play out a little more coherently as there's nothing about this main couple at the start of the film and the way the events unfold manage to give this a really underdeveloped feeling where there's easily more story that could've been included in this since it's just completely simplistic. That also holds the zombie action to just a few sequences and none of those provide this with any kind of money gore-shot that's usually seen in the genre which really holds it back for those looking for that as well. In the end, it's watchable enough as these flaws hold it down.
