Hochelaga 2048 - Depuis des temps immémoriaux, la nation québécoise a toujours cherché un sauveur. Ce sauveur se nomme Charles Maurice. C'est son audace, son courage, sa détermination et son charisme qui en 2028 amena le Québec à l'indépendance nationale. Or, les lendemains qui chantent ne furent que de courte durée. Une invasion zombies doublée d'une guerre thermonucléaire avec le Canada plongea le Québec dans une nouvelle grande noirceur. Mais l'apocalypse n'était qu'un début, car le terrible secret que cachait Charles Maurice menaçait à tout moment de ramener la jeune république québécoise au statut constitutionnel de province de l'enfer. Alors que des hordes de punks et de ninjas contestataires se dressaient dans les rues d'Hochelag, un dernier espoir persistait. Cet espoir c'était Zack ; fils de Charles Maurice et élu d'une mystérieuse prophétie. Entraîné au kung-fu depuis sa tendre enfance par son ami robot philosophe, rien ne pouvait préparer le jeune Zack à l'incroyable épopée...

Enjoyable enough but still rather problematic
10 August 2017 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Years after a zombie apocalypse, a lazy fighter forced to lead other troops into battle against the zombies in their midst makes off with the leader of a resistance movement opposing his father's rule but finds it all completely undone by the emergence of a new threat in their ranks.

This was quite a fun if somewhat problematic effort. One of the more enjoyable and engaging aspects of this one is the fact that there's an undeniable energy featured throughout here. The general idea of the storyline here, where the zombie apocalypse has already taken place and the country is overrun by the creatures gives this a strong starting point to really hang some fun scenes throughout here. That this comes from the point of big action scenes where the troops have their different confrontations with all manner of foes, from the encounters with the street thugs in the abandoned city to the frenzied hand-to-hand battle with the deviant ninja clan out in the wilderness and the interlude at the end where they join forces with the third clan of rebels against the zombies and the invading here all manage to give this one a lot to like while also managing to feature the kind of low-budget charm that's readily apparent throughout here. The scenes are basically filled with such weak and silly special effects here featuring all the limbs being ripped off, the blood spurting in streams and splashing all over the place while the terrible CGI for laser blasts, explosions and other big tangents go off all over the place make for a rather fun time with the inherent goofiness of it all. This tries to tell a coherent story here but the way it goes about everything here is with the corniest effects possible which is what not only has a lot to life but also manages to bring about it's biggest drawback against it. By being so goofy and silly in its over-the-top nature throughout here, the film is so tonally all over the place that it feels too ambitious for what it's trying to be. The majority of the film is built around utterly cheesy and low-budget quality work, yet there's way too much time here that comes with him wandering around with the different groups simply complaining about everything or thinking he's in complete control of the situation only to make things worse due to incompetence that it makes the film stand out even more with the dull pace highlighting the weak work when it shows up. That is another big problem, in that while the cheesiness does make it fun at times there's a lot of times where it doesn't exploit that potential due to the rather lame look of the effect on-screen and it really does hold it back. Likewise, there's also the troublesome political message at play here that might not be relatable for all fans as the outright localized setting is quite hard to get into. Otherwise, this one does have its positive points.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence, Extreme Graphic Language, mild sexual acts and drug use.
