Come on. Also, there was definitely no style to this movie at all! Dawn of the Dead had style, Grindhouse although not a Zombie flick, but of a similar genre-style was greatly stylized, Sin City was exciting visually as well, but this movie could have been shot in daylight outside of LA over a weekend.
It had no "Feel" to it. I love Zombie movies James Gunn's Dawn of the Dead, awesome , but this one was true Hollywood schlock and a big disappointment. Zombies have invaded a small Colorado town. The government has blocked it off, leaving the survivors to fend for themselves. This is yet another boring zombie flick that follows the same predictable patterns with nothing new, exciting, or fresh.
Unless you bring into account the fact that Mr. Mariah Carey Nick Cannon is in it. The acting, as you would expect, is sub-par, and the only REAL thing going for the film is the makeup effects on the zombies Still, it's something to watch I suppose if you're totally bored and want to kill some time. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggest it. Theo Robertson 26 January As it stood it was the least of George A Romero's zombie trilogy.
I didn't know that there had been a remake until it appeared on tonight's schedule on one of the minor ITV channels so I checked it out on this page and was pleased to see its budget was quoted as being 18 million dollars , along with a cast featuring actors I'd seen in other movies.
Certainly this made me optimistic that this version - if not surpassing the original in every field - would at least have improved production standards One warning sign appeared at the opening credits. This didn't look too promising , especially when you don't see the name of George A Remero appear. Early in to the film something else became painfully clear and that is it doesn't sit anywhere in the continuity of the DEAD universe.
The original film had the entire human race facing its ;last days as the zombies outnumbered them , to every human. Here the movie starts with the National Guard quarantining an area of Colorado. The ones seen here can also jump around like Carl Lewis which makes them extremely formidable foes for the humans to battle.
The film works best when the people at the hospital become zombified and attack the humans. Unfortunately - and perhaps understandably - the film is unable to keep up this pace and just becomes a long sequence of " How are our heroes going to get out of this one? Romero's lack of involvement is very much a mixed blessing. He's not a great director but it he is a very good ideas man and one had wished he could have contributed to the screenplay at least. As it stands this isn't a remake , or even a reworking of it , and anyone coming to it thinking it has something to do with the DEAD trilogy might feel a little bit disappointed not to mention cheated.
OK, how the heck did this even manage to make it to DVD? For anyone reading this who hasn't seen the movie yet, don't waste your money. It's a worthless piece of crap that defiles the reputation of the movie it's supposedly a remake of and the incredible director of that movie. First off, I don't care what anyone says about the cast, they suck.
Even Ving Rhames' acting sucked, and he was probably the only high-budget actor they had in the film. Nick Cannon butchered the movie with unnecessary profanity, dimwit humor, and a scene in which he grabs two pump-action shotguns with the purpose of dual-wielding them in combat.
The zombies were doing things that is not even possible by humans such as crawling along a ceiling. The so called special effects were on par with movies released by the sci-fi channel and that is not saying much.
And the ending looks like it was taken from some foreign car advertisement the characters driving a vehicle in the background and a zombie jumps up out of nowhere, trying to shock the viewers. The whole plot of the movie seems like it was ripped from the script of Resident Evil and combined with a "few" elements of 28 Days Later.
In reality, I have just one question for the producers: What the hell were you thinking when you made this abomination?
The only reason I gave this horrible excuse of a movie a 1 rating is because "0" wasn't an option. Pass this one up people, it will only give you a headache later. Words just cant really describe how bad this movie really is. So far I've seen zombies that use the ceiling to get in front of someone like an martial arts expert, zombies that walk on the wall like Spiderman. I've seen zombies that HIDE a body in the closet, and when the police arrives after the body's have been found lay in between them as to fool the police.
I've seen purple blood. A zombie who's sad about being tied up in a car, and not going totally berserk, but just sad. The reason why? He's a vegetarian. Or climb a ladder? Or leap like frog on amphetamine? Or flap their arms like a monkey on crack?
I'm not saying that a zombie movie is very believable, but this was just over the top. The SFX in this film is not just bad, it's pathetic! At one point it looked like the blood was just painted on the frame. I was expecting so much more from this, seeing as the dawn of the dead was, imho, very good. Even if you think of it as a stand-alone, it's just sad beyond words. Still, you have to see this just to believe how a film with the magical title Day Of The Dead could suck so hard.
