Critic Reviews for The Cured
At its best, it has the provocative cunning of a "Black Mirror" episode. Unfortunately, "The Cured" becomes less cerebral and more predictably action-oriented in its third act .
The feelings are right, and that's very much the main thing.
Debut director David Freyne has obviously seen entirely too many George Romero movies for his own good.
It's not that writer-director David Freyne is incapable of finesse - "The Cured" has long and affecting passages marked more by sadness and melancholy than horror - but he seems to have misjudged the overtone here.
"The Cured" drops the politics to become a straight-up zombie flick not nearly as intriguing, though no doubt better for box office.
Audience Reviews for The Cured
What if zombies could be cured? This Irish production kinda ponders the implications, but stays too formulaic, too safe, in the end, forgetting that the subject matter DEMANDS outlandish, fantastic elements. The ultimate result is less than dramatic, less than interesting. Still, a good idea. I waited in vain for at least one scene where titled characters drooled while eyeing some innocent victim mindlessly.
