Reasonable film in a very tired genre,
This review is from: The Crazies [DVD] (DVD)
It was ok, certainly not bad. Well acted, with reasonable effects.
But haven't there been about a million films now involving
a - something happens which looks a bit weird
b - you start getting zombies etc
c - we are introduced to a 'normal family/group
d - the whole world goes to sh+t
e - the normal group nearly gets killed, and certainly loses some members along the way
f - one or more of the normal group just about gets away
with a possible subclause f1
- it looooks like they got away, but who knows......?
and f2 - they all die.
I won't spoil the film by saying exactly what happens in the end, but this film fits very firmly into the template mentioned above.
