[C]learly wants to invoke motifs of revolution rocking the status quo and of how people cope under the most extreme expressions of communist... but the humor falls flat -- waaaay flat -- for anyone not Cuban, or not at least familiar with life in Cuba...
The story is a bit choppy from the middle to the end. But, hardcore zombie fans can be very forgiving. And, for them, "Juan of the Dead" might just be worth the time. The ending is clever and upbeat. Not too bad.
Juan of The Dead is rough and ready, the effects are a little shoddy, the comedy is broad and sometimes homophobic but there are just enough whimsical moments and deadpan hilarity to make it worthwhile.
If it's not too late in the day for yet another zombie movie, this has enough small pleasures - especially in the lead characterisations - to make it a worthwhile watch for a) Cuban exiles and b) long-term zombie completists.
