Oh, what went wrong here... This was phenomenally bad...
20 October 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Alright, well I will agree to the fact that "Endzeit" (aka "Ever After") was a different zombie apocalypse movie. But that doesn't necessarily mean it was a good movie.

In fact, the cons severely outweighs the pros for this movie, making it a less than mediocre, if not downright laughable addition to the zombie genre. And I use the term 'zombie genre' lightly here, because the zombie apocalypse was actually nothing more than a mere backdrop in "Endzeit".

I was sorely disappointed with the movie, and I had expected more of a proper zombie movie, but was instead served a movie about a girl's journey of coming to terms with her guilt and thoughts, and coming to accept the death of her younger sister. Zombie movie? Not so much. I think you actually only have zombies in the movie less than 5 minutes combined. So this hardly qualifies as a zombie movie.

Now, I will say that the movie is nicely produced and the production level of the movie is great. But the movie just failed on so many other accounts that it had no chance of being salvaged. I mean, a zombie movie without zombies.

And the zombies that were there were running. Yeah, running, fast and agile zombies - that is not my cup of tea at all. The zombie make-up was adequate, but you shouldn't be getting your hopes up.

Writer Olivia Vieweg and director Carolina Hellsgård tries to pull a vegan and environmentally awareness bag over the head of the viewers. It just didn't work, and it was so tactless. I mean, people and zombies turning into plants, come on... And the ending and what was being said there as the movie ended was just a slap to the face.

My rating of "Endzeit" is three out of ten stars, and that is solely because of the production level and the acting performances. The rest of the movie was questionable and not particularly enjoyable. Actually, the entire movie didn't prove to be particularly entertaining.

If you are looking for a proper zombie movie, then you should find another movie to watch, because this is not going to rock your boat.
