I love Zombie movies. This film is based on the video game and is an average made for DVD movie. Jesse Metcalfe leads the cast against the hordes of zombies in an abandoned city while trying to find out the cause of the outbreak. Some really cool weapons, zombie kills & fights, and terrific editing around the action sequences. You will see weapons, kills, characters, costumes, & zombies similar to Z Nation and The Walking Dead as Zombies have been done to death the past 6 years since the inception of the hit AMC show...however to this day I still believe George A. Romero did it the best with his Dead Films...most of the zombie movies today aren't worth a mouth full of Greek Salad!! There's so many comic books about zombies with some different, unique, and original ideas..I wish someone in Hollywood would try something new for a change...stop beating a dead horse...
If you haven't heard of this movie don't worry it's not because it was a bad film that made a direct to DVD release. This and the movie before it Dead Rising Watchtower were released through Sony's Crackle service exclusively to attempt people to check out the app more by releasing their own movies. As far as video game adaptations go this one doesn't suffer the same fate and instead can be very enjoyable to check out.
After falling in love with the first movie, Dead Rising: Watchtower, I was ecstatic to find out that a sequel had been made. While the first movie focused on character development and Rob Wiggle comedy, this film focuses more on plot, action scenes, and discovering new brutal ways to kill zombies.
This is a definite must-see for any Dead Rising fan!
Another cheaply made but actually decent movie based on the dead rising video games. Low budget, stupid characters and a weak story line. But still surprisingly good. Definitely worth getting for anyone that likes the games or zombies.
