Writing this as a 'Zombie movie' lover,
This review is from: Pontypool [DVD]  (DVD)
The first thing I'd like to say here guys is that this is not a zombie movie. I watched this after seeing it in the "Top 10 Movies You Will Not Have Seen Yet" list for 2010. The fact it has 'zombie movie' plastered all over the media quotes on the DVD cover actually could present this to an audience who aren't really looking for this type of film. However, does that hold the actual movie itself back in any way? Of course not!!
Even as a zombie fan, I got sucked right into the suspense of this one. The acting and casting is absolutely superb. The plot is something very original, I don't think we've ever had a story like this before and I will not spoil it because watching it as it all unfolds is around 50% of the enjoyment of the movie.
If you're looking for Resident Evil style blood splattering arcade violence (whilst, admittedly, sometimes that's fun) this is not that kind of movie. I wouldn't even class this as a zombie film at all really, but nowadays anyone starts acting wierd and it's branded as 'zombie'.
You will enjoy this moviea lot if you watch it with an open mind, as a suspense/chiller which is what it's actually supposed to be. I certainly got more than I bargained for when I watched this. Fantastic acting, some of the best I have ever seen.
