| Genre fans have a good one, but otherwise....zzzzzzzz.
If you love the zombie apocalypse movie (and the subgenre of vampire apocalypse movie) then you will love this thing. Massive amounts of gunplay with big guns used by men with big muscles in military type get ups, supported natch by pretty gurls and vintage muscle cars. All good stuff. Unfortunately, it's really not that good once you get under the surface and past the above trappings. There are 2 or 3 clearly professional actors with Lance Henrickson, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, and one of the Mandylors. It is clear they are actors because the rest of them are pretty awful. Especially the lead 'Brooding Anti-hero' named, believe it or not, "Johnny Strong". I guess since he was a producer and maybe did the music for free, they gave him the biggest role. And the music is actually one of the highlights. The sfx is not bad, production values strong, cool setting, and vampiric zombies menacing. Except it is clear there are only like a dozen or so actual zombies despite the heroes killing like 500 of them with seemingly endless gun clips they rarely ever change out. And the scenes in the two high rises are nonsensical as the meat eaters seem to come at our protagonists from above and below, forward and behind...when they came originally from the lower level. I've played FPS games that made more sense. But the camerawork is excellent and editing even better. Really better than this type movie usually gets. Conceptually it's pretty stale....the loner coming in to save the day has been flogged to death going back to Clint Eastwood's early movies, particularly Pale Rider. But again, it's a genre pic so fans won't care. So, the story is meh, sfx passible, acting hit-or-miss, action scenes well executed and shot but incoherent, repetitive and eventually monotonous. Worst of all...not memorable. And not one i would want to see again.
