"bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures"? You mean zombies? What is wrong with these people? Everyone knows you shoot them in the head. These guys are wasting tons of ammo and effort by beating the crap out of them. There needs to be some sort of public service announcement, because that was just stupid.
i thought this was fun in a super trashy way, but that's probably because i'll watch anything with zombies. if you've been tuning in to "the walking dead" week after week hoping all the boring characters will eventually kill or eat one another, this movie kinda fulfills that fantasy, and leaves out all the idiotic dialogue between rick and lori along the way. happy halloween.
A french take on the zombie picture. Mix in the best ideas of various zombie pics and shake well. Not too bad of its kind but certainly nothing special. A couple of killer scenes: the cop taking on the horde, the fight between the femme cop and a zombie girl and pretty much every scene with the old cambodian war survivor. Good for the genre of late.
If you like living dead movies, you won't be disappointed by this one that stands up, regarding the form, to the Spanish Rec, the British 28 Days Later or any Romero zombie flick. Now, if you're looking for some flesh around the bone, stay with Danny Boyle and George Romero. Recommended.
It's as violent and unpredictable as a good zombie movie should be, but it's also much more vulgar than it has to be. It leaves the impression that there isn't much difference between the humans and the zombies. Perhaps that was the intention, but it's one I could do without.
Insanely violent, this entrant into the grotesquerie of French horror is simplistic in narrative and astonishingly messy visually, yet somehow it manages to establish a real sense of tension throughout it's ninety-odd minute running time. Ebouaney is an electric presence on film and he is supported really effectively by Claude Perron, who proves a worthy counterpart to her male posse.
Insanely common. I felt like watching a roleplaying game session. But there was ONE major good point : the old timer ex-soldier. He brightened up the movie and is probably the only good actor in it. Anyway it's a decent movie, but made by two journalists, you had to expect them to put a shitload of references to the zombie movies.
This film adds nothing new to the zombie genre. Zero plot, zero characterization, overly-fast-paced. I'm tired of the shaky-cam effect. I wish people would stop using it over and over ad-nauseum. I couldn't get into it at all. It was devoid of life, and it felt like a really bad video game: floor after floor of zombies with one clear objective - get out of the building alive. What a pointless waste of 90 minutes.
A fast-paced yet virtually plotless zombie romp. Zero characterisation means you care little about who does / doesn't get their brains munched out. All the ideas and set-pieces were derivative of other movies, apart from the parking-garage car-roof scene which was the only stand-out part of the film.
