Syfy channel presents this zombie apocalypse film with little to no creativity. San Fransisco became over run by zomebies, and few survivors escapes to Alcatraz but then the zombie could swim so they have to move to other places and find security and a possible cure. The interesting aspect was that the epidemic was caused by microorganism and they are not immune to electricity, also the infection can be really fast. It's just fun to see Danny Trejo in this film, that's all there is really. The plot was dumb, special effect was crap, a lot of unnecessary scenes and characters that served no purpose to the main storyline. The zom-baby seemed promising but is utterly useless when it got crushed by feet.
This one is more of the same . The only interesting aspect is seeing how far Mariel Hemingway and LeVar Burton have fallen .
Mariel Hemingway, Levar Burton and Danny Trejo head a talented cast in a pretty good rehash of the zombie movie. Aside from a better cast than usual, this films adds nothing new to the genre. The filmmakers did try to give a bit more attention to the whole how do zombies live question but since it is simply impossible they can't add anything much. There is also some attempt to create a little atheist scientist versus religious believer tension but nothing comes of that either. The action is good and for a change who will die next is not predictable. If you like zombie movies at all, this is an entertaining one but certainly no film classic.
