2.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE WEAKEST DEAD'S YET, 27 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Survival Of The Dead [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Coming on the back of the enjoyable and clever "Diary Of The Dead" it's sad to say that "Survival Of The Dead" is quite a weak zombie film. Which is a pity as it seemed that George A. Romero had re awoken his own franchise with 2005's highly successful "Land of the Dead". This movie just feels real weak compared to all previous entries, in fact the zombies barely play a part and there's no scenes that will have you jumping, Yes it could be to do with the budget of only 4 million but Romero's never really had big budgets before and after all "Diary Of The Dead" only had a budget of 2 million.

The movie basically picks up where the last movie ends in that a bunch of renegade soldiers rob the belongings of the cast of "Diary Of The Dead", while this is going on there's a war going on an island that is supposed to be zombie free. Of course everyone will descend on to this island and battle the zombies, but unfortunately it doesn't work that way and the story turns into who gets control of the island and the Zombies are really only in the background.

There is no extras included and the movie has a dated feel to it and if Romero's name wasn't attached to it we probably won't make it till the end. If you have seen the previous dead's then it's worth a look but if you only have a passing interest then don't bother!
