[SF] Undead

by the Spierig Brothers
* ½

Great special effects, cool ideas and at least 10 hysterically funny zombie movie moments.

Incoherent action, ending and logic. Multiple 5 minute stretches that lack tension. Two dickheads sticking guns to the head of the Man Who Knows What He’s Doing and making him do the stupid thing.*

Upshot: A neat, inventive big-looking little film shot on low budget with a script that made me go (20 minutes in) from, “Why isn’t this movie famous?” to “I understand why this movie isn’t famous.

* Also some patchy performances.
