So I saw the movie at Wal-Mart yesterday but I was rather unsure if it was going to be any good so I didn’t buy it. After I got home last night I looked it up on the net, the all thing zombie forums and was surprised at how many positive reviews it got. So I knew if I was back up Pikeville this weekend I would have to pick it up.|
The movie stars TJ Kim, Martouf Lantash, Billy Keikeya, Judge Biederman, David Kendrick, Rya Kibbey….ok if you’ve not caught on yet those aren’t real actors but characters from either The 4400, Battlestar Galactica, and the two Stargate shows. I could have went on with almost every actor on in this movie has appeared on one of those 3 shows or a number of others that are filmed in Vancouver Canada (Andromeda, the L Word, etc).
There are a lot of predictable scenes going into the movie, so much so they were scenes I really wanted to see after reading the premise of the movie. On an island where a logging company is operating a group of environmentalist is trying to stop their operation. I think one really positive thing I can say about the movie is it is not preachy from either point of view. Which is very hard too do.
It’s a movie that is played serious, and the zombies are slow two things that help the movie (imo).
A few of the predictable scenes and other spoilers behind the cut!
