Hey, you have to admit; the music was cool!
This film is a travesty, at best a nice collection of famous film clips. It starts out copying "Night of the Living Dead", breaks into "The Omega Man", becomes "Dawn of the Dead", and ends up with the "Day of the Dead" and has little of "The Postman" thrown in for good measure. The producers/writers should give credit where credit is due!!!
i saw this film on an off-day... a day off from work. i was interested in it because i'd read that it had obvious visual similarities to romero's "night of the living dead" (only one of the scariest films ever made): they're there... but this film wants to be liked too much to really explore the answers to what might really become of civilisations in the event of a plague of the kind that place in the fictional world it creates.
there's also a few logical flaws - like how are the rampaging infected alternatively stealthy and cunning, then mindless and frenzied - that i could've overlooked had the film been more explorative with the subject matter.
i'd recommend it...but, don't expect to see a contemporary horror masterpiece.
Way overrated. Film is too interested in being "cool." Terrible homage to Rambo near the end.
First third, where the "hero" is keeping his trap shut and walking around a deserted London is the best part of the film.
I had read the script years ago and thought, "man, I hope they re-write this pretenious army ending." Sadly they didn't.
