A good movie

This is a great movie. It is very scary. It has great special effects. It also has a great story line. It also has great acting. 5.2 is a good ratting. But this is such a great movie. That 5.2 is underrating it. This movie is a 9. It is one of the best horror movies of all time. If it does not scary you no movie will. It is a very scary movie. See this movie. It is a great movie. Great movie great movie great movie great movie. See it see it see it see it see it. I need more lines and I am running out of things to say. Great movie great movie great movie great movie great movie.

Worth a watch

Hubby says 'worth a watch but should have left it at the game'! I say 'worth a watch...the rating of 5.2 put me off...but watched anyway. Zombie acting wasn't as good as I'd have liked ( but when you have watched walking dead, it's pretty hard to follow) there are a few times when you are literally screaming at the screen because the main character is standing around when a 'normal' person would have either s##t there pants/died/or got the f##k outta there. Overall half decent film.

Excuse me sir, do you have a moment to talk about the walking dead?

Dead Rising: Watchtower is NOT a film about zombie Jehovah's witnesses, knocking on doors, handing out copies of their magazine before chowing down on unsuspecting homeowners. That would have made for a far more original movie than this, which is routine medium-budget zombie fare from start to finish.

Inspired by the popular video game Dead Rising, Watchtower opens promisingly enough, with a fun 'drop the viewer in the middle of the action' scene in which online reporter Chase Carter outruns a zombie horde, battles a zombie cop, and comes face-to-face with an axe wielding zombie clown. Cut to a few days earlier, and we join Chase and his camerawoman at work, filming a story about a zombie suppressant called Zombrex, which prevents those bitten from 'turning'. While they are there, the drug suddenly loses its effectiveness, resulting in a new outbreak.

What follows is a 'seen it all many times before' fight for survival against ravenous flesh eaters, Chase joining forces with a pretty infected woman (a user of Zombrex) and a bereaved mother (Virginia Madsen). Meanwhile, unscrupulous military types put into motion a plan to secretly control the populace. Yadda yadda yadda.

The film boasts decent production values and a reasonable cast, and director Zach Lipovsky pulls off a couple of neat set-pieces (Chase mowing down zombies with a sledgehammer/rotary saw combo, and his tense escape from a forklift truck surrounded by the undead), but the film is hampered by its derivative plot, an over-reliance on CGI gore, and the fact that it is waaayyy too long at just two minutes short of two hours.

5.5/10, rounded up to 6 for the zombie clown's 'death'.
