| Israeli zombie shenanigans
CANNON FODDER is yet another in a long line of all-too-familiar zombie stories with a military backdrop. The difference is that this one's an Israeli entry in the genre, and it's technically a student film, given that it's the product of a thesis project. Sadly, it's as dumb and derivative as any other zombie B-movie of recent years you could mention, with the different setting doing little to assuage feelings of familiarity and boredom.

The 'heroes' are a group of Israeli soldiers battling the undead. The action is cheaply staged throughout; there's a lot of it, but with none of the expert choreography you'd hope for in this type of film. Indeed, it all seems rather slapdash. It is quite gory, although the cheesy CGI blood spray effects look like they were created on the director's brother-in-law's laptop.

The cast is pretty weak and the characters remain unlikeable throughout. The unusual setting is in this film's favour, but politics is kept strictly to the background here in favour of your routinely staged zombie action scenes. Israel needs to do better than this if it wants to make its mark on the horror scene.
