Product Description

Product Description

London: The not too distant future. N-Gen Industries, a leading pharmaceutical company, is trying to placate a media uproar. Its new legal performance enhancer, RAK-295, has met with spectacular failure during testing, causing severe physical and allergic reactions in all 30,000 of its test subjects baring one.... Angela Mills (MyAnna Buring). Our Future Has One Hope … and with Angela being the only person not to report any type of reaction, N-Gen CEO Peter White (Colin Salmon) enlists Head of Security Cole (Craig Fairbrass), a hardened ex-mercenary, to find her and bring her in for examination. Angela is joined by troubled on-off boyfriend Joe (Danny Dyer) and a small group of friends as they try to seek refuge from the infected and Cole and the N-Gen Corporation.

Somewhere, someone said something like, "Hey, everyone loves zombies, right? And the Resident Evil films were successful. What about if we mix it with 28 Days/Weeks Later? We can't lose!"

Whoever said that lost.

The Devil's Playground doesn't so much as play homage to other (zombie/infection) movies as simply rips them off. It's mainly Resident Evil meets 28 Days/Weeks Later, but watch out for plot elements ripped right out of I Am Legend and various scenes re-worked from Dawn of the Dead (2004) and Night of the Living Dead.

London is overrun with zombies who don't just run like the modern crop seem to do these days, but also pirouette, somersault, bounce off walls and hang upside down from vans to peer in the sliding door (as opposed to simply looking inside said open sliding door). They've come a long way from Romero's `shufflers' - seriously, these guys are more graceful in the air than a ballerina. Plus, instead of just killing and eating people, they go as far as to `strike a pose' every time they enter a room, just for added menace (and to give any major characters a fair chance at running/clobbering them).

Talking of main characters - it's like a C-list of British action heroes, none of which have obviously ever seen a zombie movie, as it takes most of the film to figure out the ol' `destroy the brain' way of killing them. Danny Dyer and Craig Fairbrass fight it out for `most cockney hero' title. The leading lady spends most of her time looking frail and meek (certainly no Milla Jovovich here!). The rest of the cast just try too hard. They're a mixture of stereotypes who, if cast as `b*tchy' is UBER b*tchy, if cast as `lovable' is UBER lovable and so on. Poor Jamie Murray - she's worth so much more.

My support for the UK film industry continued with my purchase of Devil's Playground, a 2010 British zombie movie starring Danny Dyer, Craig Fairbrass and MyAnna Buring.

Devil's Playground is an action horror that shamelessly steals elements from 28 Days Later, Resident Evil and Doomsday. The greatest point for me (other than the vastly underused MyAnna Buring) would be the zombies/ infected here. Like me, if you are used to your zombies bumbling along, a la Romero or even fast hyper-aggressive bitey zombies like in the remake of Dawn of the Dead, then Devil's Playground may come as a bit of a surprise; what we have here are parkour zombies!

Unfortunately, these super agile zombies are not exploited to their full potential. Not enough is made of the chase scenes in this movie and subsequently lets itself down on this particular aspect.

Brit horror staple Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) puts in a nice little turn here and Colin Salmon (Resident Evil) does corporate ruthlessness very well and a small role for Jaime Murray too. The film is effectively propped up by Fairbrass and Buring, two British actors who (along with the likes of Tamer Hassan) could really flourish in the right roles. Dyer once again is slotted in to a genre flick unnecessarily. To my mind, Dyer fits perfectly into the mockney gangster and cheeky chappy roles that he made a name for himself with but has as yet, failed to impress in roles in the horror genre of any significance.

There is very little more for me to say on Devil's Playground since the film lacks any real substance and is ultimately let down through what feels like sheer laziness. The plot is unoriginal, the dialogue is sub-standard, the characters are woefully under-developed and cliched; and the whole film rests on its low-budget set pieces and subsequently fails to hit the mark.

Its a zombie film get over it!!!!!!

But as the genre goes it is quite good... Nowhere near as good as 28 days later. But nevertheless excellent for a straight to video B movie with C list actors.

Some of the reviewers say the film is derivative, well, that's true almost of every film made to some extent, but ok, it's bog standard zombie fare, with Danny Dyer as the disgraced cop vaguely accused of responsibility for a child's death, Craig Fairbrass as the Tough Guy who discovers his humanity, albeit a little late and Colin Salmon as the unscrupulous head of NGen which markets a stress reliever that turns the UK into zombies plus a disgracefully underused Sean Pertwee who makes the very best of his ten minutes or so of screen time, overall, worth a watch two or maybe even three times, but doesn't belong as a permanent addition to your collection more like Outpatients!

By PJ Rankine TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Nov. 2010
Format: DVD
There is really nothing wrong with this movie except that its all been done before. The only thing original for me was the use of free runners as the infected, their behaviour was like that of a pack of manic baboons and really quite effective and to the director's credit was not overdone. It took the hero/villain Craig Fairbrass too long to figure out that headshots were the most effective, has he never been to the cinema? Danny Dyer takes a lot of flak but there was nothing wrong with his performance at all and it was nice to see the return of MyAnna Buring (the cute innocent one from 'Lesbian Vampire Killers') as the female lead. The director has done a good job with what was obviously a low budget but this just needed a better script. Even Romero's plots are getting a little tired but he has done a few now. A debut zombie type film needs to have an original and fresh approach and sadly this wasn't it. If this is your particular genre then you won't be too disappointed but rent it first.
