ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombie Apocalypse (2011)

Zombie Apocalypse was a made for TV movie, and while it does have some big name stars like VIng Rhames and Eddie Steeples, the script and overall level of special effects are about what you would expect from a made for TV movie.

The special effects are mostly C+ and I honestly enjoyed the action scenes for maybe the wrong reasons. Like when the double barrel shotgun appears to have more than two shots, or a gun aimed at a stomach blows a zombies head off.

Buy hey, the point is to be entertained right?

There were some good survival notes though. I liked the no going anywhere alone rule, because that always drives me crazy when people are in a high danger environment, and people decide to wander off on their own.

I also liked that unlike other zombie worlds, where you wonder why people don’t just drive around in a combine, all electronics are basically useless in this world because the government set of EMP’s to kill modern transportation when they were trying to slow down the infection.

Overall I would save Zombie Apocalypse for a rainy day when you have nothing else to do. It’s not the best zombie movie ever made, but its not the worst ever, which earned it a 64/100.

Things I Liked:

  • When an ice-skate was used as a throwing star in the sporting goods store.
  • The “Thriller” effect for the zombies. How many of the zombies watched “Thriller” right before they went into their fight scenes? A lot of them had that lurching walk and crooked hands just like the music video.
  • Heavy machine gun being fired with no recoil, and the belt not moving – but shells are being ejected because of CGI.
