There's a lot to like in this- the characters are engaging and impeccably cast. Storywise however it's a little aimless, especially towards the end. The film seems to abruptly realise two thirds of the way through that it hasn't really done much with Tony's character and tries to make up for lost time. The resulting final act is a strange and rather hollow anticlimax.
Could possibly have been decent were it not for the incessant voiceover which utterly ruins the whole thing. It's like the film doesn't trust it's actors to be able to adequately convey what's happening so practically every scene is going to be pedantically explained to you, whether you like it or not. Spoiler: you won't.
A bleak, harrowing film that's more of a slow and measured character study than a thriller but cleverly done with absolutely minimum dialogue. I'm not sure it's an experience I'd care to repeat though.
A teen zombie flick that's sweet but a little too slick and earnest for it's own good. The zombies behave just how the script needs them to at any given time and the incessant music breaks seem contrived to target those with a very short attention span.
Words cannot do justice to how bad this film is. A discount Mad Max on acid is the only description that comes to mind. Nicholas Cage's wooden acting and painfully obvious hair dye just put the finishing touches on it. In mitigation, the dialogue is so awful that noone alive could do anything with it. As an example, I present the actual line he comes out with when threatened: "I'll Karate chop you". You have been warned.
A few good action scenes aside, this is a slick but hollow and muddled thriller which never really makes the most of it's cast and already feels stale. If I was told this was made in the 90's I'd believe it.
A completely original and utterly bizarre concept executed almost perfectly. It possibly bites off a little more than it can chew occasionally and the final scene does seem to trivialise some of it's weightier themes, but overall it's a great film.
Utterly ludicrous but with plenty of humour and over the top gore, anyone who likes Peter Jackson's early films will love this. Sadly it falls over at the end with weak d*ck and f*rt gags and a need to somehow resurrect a lot of people, but it's still great fun.
