Zombie Apocalypse(released Oct/11) gives us yet another *gulp* taste of what the world end times/zombie ridden landscape,will look like after it all.Wow,I'm shaking my head right now because I haven't been through a watching experience like this in a LONG time.It's like getting a strong whiff of smelling salts under the old proboscis.Hooo-weee!As you know,there has been as much of an "outbreak" of zombie related movies in the past ten years from Hollywood as there have been imaginary plagues that these movies purport to show.Could just one more,be that bad a thing?
This time 'round we have what is called a VM2 virus...whatever happened to the VM1? Geesh,just asking. Anyhoos,it has wiped out a good portion of the Earth's pop(that's "population" for you non Tweeters)...doesn't it always? Ving Rhames leads a rag tag group of survivors from the eastern end of the U.S.to L.A.There they all hope to catch a boat over to Catalina Island and safety.Everything that you see in between is the usual hit/kill a zombie,run from a zombie and once in a while get bit by a zombie.In between all the "excitement",the players all have a resty-poo here and there.
That is the "plot",as much as it is;we definitely have a less is more thing going on here.Ving is no stranger to Zombies,oh no.He was last in Dawn of the Dead in /04 and acquitted himself pretty well in the zombie killing department there.So he knows what he's doing by now.Here,he is more of the menacing hulk type of guy,kinda shy and quiet,bad butt and ready to kill a Z at any moment.The rest of the cast,filled with lesser known actors,also acquit themselves pretty well."So what is so wrong with the film,Bob?...cut to the chase!",you may ask.

A Low Budget Zombie Epic: Better Than Expected, But Still Fairly Uninspired Nov. 2 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Anyone that watches a SyFy Channel original movie on occasion knows that they rarely offer real chills. That doesn't mean that some of the films don't have a demented sort of charm. Grade A cheese, the best of the bunch tend to be hysterically unapologetic creature feature schlock. One of the main contributors to the SyFy channel brand is a film production studio aptly called The Asylum. Oh how I dread The Asylum, a company responsible for some mind numbing embarrassments which rip-off current trends or big budget features. I hate that usually their movies fail to even qualify as dumb fun (and really, that's all I expect). Well, The Asylum is capitalizing on the on-going undead infatuation with "Zombie Apocalypse." And while no means a classic, at least it fares slightly better than their other recent endeavors. But here's the deal. While I am more than content to watch just about anything zombie related for free, would I really invest in a DVD purchase for this title? Ultimately, the answer is probably no. There is simply too much competition in this overcrowded genre, and much of it is quite good.

"Zombie Apocalypse" gets off to a rollicking start with the virtual destruction of the world. The opening is clever and colorful and really had my hopes set high. But after the brief introduction, we're plunged into very familiar territory. A group of three friends stumble into town after being isolated for about six months--they're hoping the zombie problem has solved itself. Well, it doesn't take long for that dream to go up in smoke. After a brutal attack, they are joined by another group of travelers who are headed to Catalina Island (a known safe zone). Together they must cross Los Angeles. My favorite sequence comes late in the picture where our group is downtown and the next scene they are in Long Beach--wow! There really isn't much more to the plot. It really just boils down to who will survive and what will be awaiting them. I hazard to think how tiny little Catalina Island is the destination for every living soul in America!

On the plus side, the film features some likable actors. Ving Rhames is certainly the headliner and he provides solid support. But really this is an ensemble piece and several actors whom I didn't know actually served up pretty decent performances (Johnny Pacar and Gary Weeks specifically). Taryn Manning, on the other hand, was given the movie's most useless role--that of a completely helpless victim. In the entire movie, she kills exactly one zombie. The rest of the time she cries for help or runs away while others do battle. Pretty pathetic. The zombie effects are good enough for this low budget production and the battles are well choreographed. It isn't "The Walking Dead" by any means from a technical standpoint, but it works for what it is. And the final battle, as bizarre and out-of-left-field as it is, had a silliness that appealed to me. All in all, the movie was much better than I expected. But would I ever watch it again? Not likely. About 2 1/2 stars. KGHarris, 11/11.

Wow a movie by Aylum that isnt a steaming pile of crap! Oct. 29 2011
By EvilDead159 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Im actually watching this on syfy right now, and i must say it not bad, Its got Ving Rhames for one and a couple of other great and fairly known actors. When i found out that Asylum made this, i couldnt beleive it. Asylum is a mockbuster company that makes rip off of hollywood movies, and theyre always terrible, i mean so bad you wonder how the company is still around. This is the only watchable movie of theres, but its not just watchable its actually pretty good. I still feel that Aylum and everyone who works in the company should be kicked square in the jewels for all the crap they spill out.

ZOMBIE WALKS IN LA? Nov. 17 2013
By JEROME W, MARTIN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am not a fan of Zombie movies normally, but I liked this one. It had humor, lots of Zombies and enough goings on to make it
interesting. See, these Zombies are taking over the world, and these non-zombies are trying to get across LA to get to
a safe haven for humans on Catalina Island. There are funny moments and more serious parts I the film and I enjoyed it. LA takes
it on the lumps again after being ravished by Martians, giant ants, Kronos the energy eater, tidal waves, earthquakes and the
Kardashians(the worst!). And how in the world can you tell a Zombie from an average LA aborigine? I don't know, I live in NY.
I forgot to mention LA getting mushed in the movie Independence Day; also Skyline, also some other alien stuff. So there you are
Angelinos, enjoy after all you people have gone through. It deserves four stars.

GOOD FOR ASYLUM Jan. 22 2013

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

If you have read enough of my reviews then you know that I am a fan of a company called The Asylum. They make really bad B movies, mostly rip offs, but they do every once in a while make a good little flick. In fact they have made one or two films I consider classics, yes you read that right and I said it. Well my friends is not one of those movies, it is one of the average Asylum films. It is a zombie film so it has that going for it but that may be what brings it up to average status.

It is 2012 [I assume from the title] and a group of survivors are making their way to a rumored refuge. They run across another group and join up hoping that they will all make it there. But on the way they will run into all kinds of problems, mostly of the zombie variety. They are making their way to a place called Catalina and they have to catch the ride there.

You know while writing this it is hitting me that I actually liked this more than I thought I would. This SyFy Channel flick is better than most people are giving it credit for, for a SyFy/Asylum flick it really isn't bad. Written by Brooks Peck and Craig Engler and directed by Nick Lyon [Species 4] this movie takes advantage of the action style of zombie flick. If it had to play to its strengths which it does, that would be the way to go. From the beginning we get a lot of zombie killing action. This helps cover up the weak points of the budget and such, so well done Asylum.

I wouldn't say this is a great zombie movie but it is a good Asylum one which is saying something. I did like Ving Rhames here since he adds to anything he is in and for the most part everyone was ok here. I have always liked these types of flicks in which a group of people have to make some kind of journey and people get picked off as they make their way to the destination. Add in a very good making of behind the scenes feature and this is pretty good overall. Your average flick but a good Asylum one.
