8/10
Good.. but not as funny as the series.
2 December 2010
I have watched all the episodes of Duncan Street Chronicles before this so maybe I am a little jaded. First off, the story takes a natural progression from the series and it actually makes you "want" the "gang" to succeed. However, something just does not feel right with this. Matt Veltri was the directer on this and i believe he did a fantastic job BUT something gets lost in translation... maybe its the steady shots and multiple angles... or maybe its the High Definition quality. I personally prefer Duncan Street to look like what its meant to look like, a cheap "documentary." Trailer Park Boys failed in a similar way in their last couple of seasons. They tried to be too cinematic in my opinion. Still a good flick. Still a fan... just want them to return to their roots and I also want a season 2!!!!!

10/10
Pretty good for what they are trying to do

The thing that sticks out in my memory the most is the beautiful scenery, it perfectly clashes with the ugly zombies! Great irony towards the end also, without giving any spoilers away. Great fight scenes also. Acting was a little stiff but never took me away from what was going on. Would also liked to have some more details on what happened before the film started. The "teasers" flesh things out a little bit but I could have used a little more info. One more thing, i loved the "farmer" when he yelled "bang" during the scene when he is telling his story, i nearly jumped out of my seat! GOOD STUFF. honestly the film is an 8/10 but i am giving these guys a 10/10 because they deserve it! The Night of the Living Dead references would pretty cool and a pretty good surprise too (again, not to give any spoilers away). The make-up effects were pretty good also. I had heard that they worked with two graduates from "Tom Savini's Make-up School." Would like to see what these guys can do if they had a few million $$$ to work with! -KN
