4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie! May 2 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
This film was great to watch. Obviously it centers around a group of uninfected humans who find themselves suddenly in a zombie-infested world. More than your standard zombie fare, this film has a great story underlying the basic zombie eating deal. In the beginning, a team of police attempt to act against a crime boss, of sorts. This scene does a great job of introducing us to one of the main protagonists, the crime lord who proudly claims to be a Nigerian and plays the part perfectly, an unquestionably ruthless killer who will stop at no ends to meet his needs. It just so happens that the police and the crime boss realize they have to work together to survive, and the earlier scene of conflict creates a rich set of characters that is maintained throughout, and they variously try to survive, while clinging to their original motives of being enemies. I have to say that the Nigerian actors part was especially great; there was simply something captivating about his performance.

For zombie purists, you may take exception at this film, so be warned. In this film, zombies are not slow, easy to kill nuisances. Like the Friday the 13th remake, they're superfast, superstrong beings that are really quite hungry. If you're someone who can't deal with this characterization of zombies, move on. If you can, run to watch this film.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Newest French Food Delicacy Is Human Flesh With A Side Of Guts Oct. 23 2010
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The zombie apocalypse is at hand! With the proliferation of books, films, video games and even TV shows in recent months--there is no escape from the marauding undead in contemporary entertainment. And now France is jumping into the fray with the ultra-violent "The Horde." Shot in the gritty style of a 70's era crime melodrama, "The Horde" is a relentless and brutal exercise in zombie mayhem. If you enjoy action combined with horror, "The Horde" is far from a bad picture--but, in the grand scheme of things, I'm not sure that it has much new to offer the genre. As someone obsessed with zombie lore (and what's not to adore about those flesh eating lugs?), I want to say I loved "The Horde" and yet I'm left giving it only a qualified recommendation. If you like zombie pictures, you may like "The Horde"--but if it's not your typical fare, there are far better films to whet your appetite for blood and guts.

Set in a mostly abandoned apartment building, four cops seek a little street justice after one of their own has been murdered by a Nigerian crime boss. Taking on his violent gang is only the first obstacle on what becomes an increasingly harrowing night. In the midst of some hysterically overwrought cops versus criminal confrontations, corpses start to reanimate. Soon the survivors from both groups must tentatively put away their differences with the goal of survival. It seems the entire city has suddenly been overrun, but don't expect any sort of explanation--you pretty much have to take things at face value. Luckily, our group is well armed and it's an all out war within the confines of the isolated building. The gore is plentiful, a ridiculous amount of bullets fly, and there is more hand to hand combat than seems wise! The action sequences are exceedingly brutal, but well staged and executed with ferocity.

My tepid recommendation stems from several factors. The characters are rather unappealing as a bunch and their constant arguing takes its toll on the viewer, becomes repetitive, and distracts from the more immediate danger posed by the ravenous horde. There is no zombie backstory, the humans are overblown and underdeveloped, and the minimalist plotting lacks any real originality. The entire film consists of "let's get out of the building." For warriors, our ragtag group of survivors is surprisingly dim about recognizing the need for head shots too!

In summation, I just felt like I'd seen it all before. The visual style is the most compelling aspect of "The Horde." There is a moment near the end of the film where one man holds a position in the parking garage and is surrounded by hundreds of zombies. This one sequence is so alive and exciting, it made me reflect on what was missing from the rest of the film. I enjoyed "The Horde" and got a chuckle at the last scene--I just didn't love it. So if this is your "thing"--by all means, check it out. "The Horde" was ultimately just a little thin and familiar (for me) to rank with the greats. KGHarris, 10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Undead Bloodbath From France Dec 26 2010
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Zombie movies are popping up these days more rapidly then their shambling undead subjects and with the success of AMC's 'THE WALKING DEAD', titles from other countries are beginning to filter in the mix. This one from France, Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher's 'THE HORDE' has the frenetic energy of their slasher film genre mixed with the kinetic energy of Zach Snyder's remake of George Romero's classic 'DAWN OF THE DEAD'. Nothing is explained as the newly deceased are rising and creating havoc but before this all happens , we are introduced to a sub plot of vengeance between underground police and Nigerian thugs. Trapped in a rundown high rise building, both parties must pool their resources and struggle to survive while our gut munchers relentlessly attack in some excellently, gory set pieces. African actor Eriq Ebouaney as the head of the thugs and french actress Aurelien Recoing steal the film with brilliant acting for this type of movie and the gore is piled on high and steady. I had some problems midway through the films running time but things pick up as our heroes(?) make their way out of the building complex. Fans of the undead should check this one out just for its sheer audacity alone. IFC has a beautiful 2.35 transfer in French with English subtitles and extras include a short film by the filmmakers, an alternate opening sequence and deleted scenes both of which should have been included in the final cut. Along with another french Zombie variation released this year from IFC ,'MUTANTS', France is quickly becoming the new source to check out for great Horror entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars I hear you knocking but you can't come in! March 13 2011
By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the use of sound in this film, from the opening buzzing of flies to that horrific roar/growl/shriek the zombies make. I also thought that the camera work was well done, especially the way they composed each shot. Boisterous, frenetic, speedy zombies you don't dare turn your back on; I loved this movie and was more than happy to add it to my collection. It's a movie I'd like to see again and again.
That said, it wasn't perfect by any means, I'm certain it won't appeal to every zombie devotee. It all depends on what you're looking for in a zombie flick, what satisfies you on an entertainment level. This film was French and I decided to watched the dubbed version rather than read the subtitles. I have no idea if that makes any difference...other than the difficulty of trying to read and watch at the same time. The film did start out like a standard cop thriller before abruptly turning into a zombie snack-down. That was a little off-putting. And, as usual, the merry band of survivors were equally repugnant, at times it was a tossup as to who was scarier, them or the zombies! Personally, I would have ditched the lot and struck out on my own. There was so much infighting that I began to wonder if they had forgotten about the zombies. That, and taking time to use drugs (human nature or a writer's device?). I suppose they were trying to make up for the lack of a new premise. Trapped inside a building with zombies on the outside and the inside has been done before. It's simplistic but it works, they had a lot of room to run; up and down! Many of the scenes were incredible set pieces, my favorite being the use of a refrigerator. For me it was less about the actors/characters and all about the action. And for once the DVD cover was indicative of what the movie was about.

Raw, ragged, and raucous; again, I say I LOVED IT! This is what I look for in a zombie movie: mayhem.

I highly recommend it; I took a chance and bought it solely on the reviews posted here. Obviously, I wasn't disappointed.
