Brian Hull: [after spending a whole lot of time by himself securing the doorway] Will this hold them.
Dr. Menard: Not a chance.
Now, I knew this in advance, but this movie is titled Zombi 2 in most places, claiming to be a sequel to Dawn of the Dead. The truth is that it took the '2' based on the success 'Dawn' had. This movie is not a sequel to anything. It actually would have better if it had been called Island of the Living Dead.
Anyway, this movie sucks in terms of having good characters and story, but those coming to watch this type of movie, a non Romero zombie movie from the 70s are probably not expecting much depth.
Two and a half stars comes for only a few reasons: I made up my own dialog throughout the movie. There are some quality kills and gore. There is plenty of gratuitous nudity. The music pretty good. And the ending is appropriate for this film.
People are just so stupid in this movie. There are a few times where people just stand still for a good minute and a half before realizing that maybe they should move out of the way before being eaten.
The story is so ludicrous, and even bothers to try and explain the origin of these zombies, despite the fact that against all odds the scientist still maintains that there is a logical explanation for all of this.
There is some creative stuff here worth a viewing once, but no reason to really come back when there are so many superior zombie films out there already.
Dr. Menard: The boat can leave now. Tell the crew.
