MEN AGAINST FIRE offered us a different kind of zombie genre. Actually, I'm still confused if the creatures in this episode can be referred as "zombie". Charlie Brooker gave us a satire/social commentary about "what if - we are more zombie than the zombie itself?". Honestly, I loved his concept about that. But not the presentation. I feel MEN AGAINST FIRE is very predictable to me. I never cared with its characters..
Perhaps unfairly maligned in the Black Mirror canon for its dramatic execution, Men Against Fire presents a very unique spin on a terrifying concept. The aura of cold detatchment and unsettling vibes throughout the episode subconsciously feed in to this wider sense of conspiracy too: if there are no real monsters, we'll invent our own and sell the concept by any means necessary.
Not the best Black Mirror, however it does present a compelling, and granted not incredibly subtle, look at the demonization of foreign peoples and cultures to push a political agenda. And while the stage for this message is not necessarily groundbreaking, war is perhaps the most poignant atmosphere for it to be staged.
