Dead Rising – Endgame: Blu-ray Review












The Movie:

After narrowly escaping a zombie quarantine, Chase (Jesse Metcalfe) can’t shake the guilt of having left a trusted colleague behind. Now, as he heads back into the quarantine to expose the architects of the outbreak, he will uncover a secret more evil than he could have imagined. With mass annihilation looming, Chase—along with a group of dubious allies—slices, hacks and bludgeons his way through the zombie hordes that plague the abandoned city. Our heroes will have to confront their most gruesome nightmares in order to save millions of innocent lives, including their own.

I’m just going to go ahead and give it to you straight forward: This is not the best film in the world. Now with that out of the way I do want to elaborate on that opinion. Even though I don’t think that it’s the best film in the world it doesn’t mean that the movie wasn’t fun. It was low budget, gory and had a decent amount of zombies so that kind of hit everything on my checklist for its fun factor. I will be honest though, the acting really wasn’t the greatest but I think it was the action sequences that made the movie enjoyable for me and then of course there was the stand out moment where they start to create weapons like they do in the game. That’s about as close to the game as it gets though. After the first film I thought they would’ve made it a bit closer to the source material but it seems like they are drifting further and further away. That probably was the only thing about this film that kind of bothered me a bit. This might not be a film for everybody but for someone like me that lived for different takes on the zombie genre then this is pretty entertaining. I would say that if you enjoy a good cheesy zombie flick then go ahead and check this one out. You won’t be amazed by it BUT I’m sure you’ll have a good time watching it at least. 5/10
