Hi Guys I haven't done many reviews for amazon but i am a huge zombie fan having most every zombie film ever made. I got this film thinking that it would be at least passable but i was wrong. For a start the acting is atrocious at times in the move you can see the actors looking off camera at scripts or prompt boards. the only actor/actresses that puts in some small effort is the guy playing abe Lincoln (Bill Oberst Jr) fair play to him.
Ok next on to historical accuracy this film is set in the American civil war and they use civil war weapons but and its a big one you can see the rifle been used primarily in the film is a Pattern 1853 Enfield wick is a muzzle loading rifle. but you see the gun been fired multiple times with out a reload the gun will only fire once before you would need to reload. my second point is this stone wall Jackson did have a beard in the war but was not a wispy glued on one the you see Don McGraw (Jackson in the film) waring it is the worst fake beard i have seen in a film and his second in charge officer looks like he has a slug balanced on his top lip and not facial hair. ime 30 i can grow a descant looking tash an around a week. if i know i was to be in a film that called for one i would grow one and not sellotape a slug to my lip.
The plot and the zombie suck the reason Lincoln is there is to kill all the zombies but for the most part of the film he just walks around them with ample time and safety to kill them but elects not to. the zombies for the most part just stand around and wate to die. Making them a none threatening opponent threw the film.
The sfx are also a joke its all done badly on final cut pro by the looks of things
All in all if you want a zombie film set in this time period there are other options. Please For all that is good in the world Avoid this film like a zombie plague
