So, I finally went and saw it this Sunday, and I gotta say…it was just as bad as I hoped it would be.
The big thing, I thought I read the guy decided against including screen shots of the video game in the movie. Amazed to see he changed his mind, kept them in, and this thing still managed to make it into theaters. Holy CRAP, what a stupid fucking idea! I think the only part in this movie where I got startled was when they suddenly had a screen shot of a screaming zombie jump up on camera. Other than that, the film was a complete piece of shit.
First off, what the hell was up with the “rave”? I was laughing at the fact that the “Rave of the Century” was taking place during the day? No good raver worth their salt would be at a rave during daylight. Come to think of it, no good raver would be caught over the age of 20, for that matter.
And I like how the world’s top underwear model was hanging out with average college kids. Huh?
Also, for a zombie film, what was with the lack of headshots? Since when do zombies die from an axe to the stomach? Still, it did have some fun little moments. I liked the big shoot out on the way to the house, that was a lot of fun, actually. Although, I didn’t quite get the whole point of that damn montage when Liberty died. “Just in case you forgot what little bits of plot actually occurred so far, let me show them to you again.”
I also liked how each person had their own little Matrix-esque little action shots. I also loved how half the time, they had different weapons
And although it was used way too much, I did like the use off all that “bullet time” filming when it came to the final fight. I actually thought that was rather cool. My favorite part, though, was when they find the lab, and on one of the shots of the zombie on the table, you can see the actor’s nose sticking up threw the zombie’s “nasal cavity”.
Overall, worth the matinee price to see on the big screen, but MAN what a piece of shit. I loved it.
