| Kept my interest, but not totally satisfying
I watched this because I'd played the games, and that makes it a little hard to review. The games turned everything into a mystery and kept you wondering. Each character seemed to have a million secrets, and you wanted to know what they were. I didn't feel that way in the movie, but was that because it didn't emphasize the mysteries, thus making them feel unimportant, or was it because I already knew some of the answers.

I think mainly the former, because I really don't remember much from the games. This movie retells the story of the first game (I read that on wikipedia) and it seems less layered than the game was, telling a story more on the surface. It does offer up a few tantalizing mysteries, but none of them were answered. This would be excusable if they were planning on a longer series that would tell the whole story, but I don't know if they were.

Somehow this just seemed more involving in the game. Although admittedly I played it years ago so who knows what I'd think if I played it again.

Norman Reedus' Favorite Show Might Surprise You

He's best known for shooting zombies with a crossbow, but Norman Reedus is more into sketch comedy than action and horror when choosing what to watch off-set.
