It Features Flat Performances And Adds Nothing Really Original To The Standard Zombie Storyline
From the very beginning of this movie I found myself wondering about the title of all things! “Rise Of The Zombies.” It suggests that the movie is going to be about the beginnings of a zombie plague – how it happened, where it came from. But no. Actually, from the very opening scenes of the movie it seems pretty clear that the zombies have already risen! They’re pretty much in control and there don’t seem to be all that many survivors. Over the course of the hour and a half, we do find out that it probably started with an infected water system, and that it’s pretty recent. One of the characters is pregnant, and she says she got pregnant at a party two months before. So, since people probably haven’t been partying much since the zombie plague started, this whole thing must have happened in less than two months. But that’s not the focus of the movie. Not at all. Those are just snippets of information that come out. So, yes, strange choice for a title.
With this being set in San Francisco (although the plague seems to be worldwide, or one assumes that there would be rescue missions) what survivors there are have holed themselves up on Alcatraz Island. So that’s a bit of a twist: a high security prison becoming a sanctuary. Unfortunately, it seems that even Alcatraz isn’t a very secure sanctuary. Every now and then zombies come wading ashore and have to be killed. Now, I’ve never looked it up, but I assume that the water depth between San Francisco and Alcatraz is more than 6 feet (ie, more than the height of your average human being – or zombie – or it wouldn’t have been much of a prison) which suggests that since the zombies don’t appear to be the type to enjoy boating they must be able to walk a fair distance under water. OK. Why not. It makes it harder to find a real place of refuge, thus increasing the hopelessness that’s always at the centre of a zombie movie.
Aside from that little twist, though, there’s not a lot of originality to this. The zombies are zombies. They’re the undead, re-animated corpses controlled by a virus of some sort with a taste for the flesh and blood of living humans. Got it. Seen it many times.
The cast features a collection of fairly well known faces, although mega-stars they’re not. People like Mariel Hemingway, LeVar Burton, French Stewart. They’re all in this. A couple of others. Faces and names you know, in other words. Unfortunately, though many of the faces are familiar, the performances weren’t great. Hemingway was probably the most front and centre as a scientist who takes a group from Alcatraz back into the city to try to find the lab where an antidote to the virus was being worked on. She didn’t really grab me. Burton was given the most opportunity for a character the viewer could sympathize with. He stays behind on Alcatraz while Hemingway’s group goes into the city and others go off in search of rescue, and he keeps two living zombies (or is that a contradiction?) locked up to experiment on as he looks for a cure. The attempted heart-wrenching is that one of the zombies he has locked up is his own daughter. Still, I would have to say that my reaction to most of the cast is that they were less than convincing in their roles; unenthused about playing them perhaps?
So, really, what you have here is a mediocre movie that adds nothing original to the zombie genre, and rather flat performances from the cast. Not a winner, in other words. (3/10)
