Editorial Reviews

When a deadly virus is accidentally released into a major city, its population is quarantined by military blockade. And for a wealthy industrialist desperate to rescue his daughter from inside the rabid chaos, his only hope is former commando Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren). Now Gatling has one day to bust in, blast through hordes of the undead, find the girl, and hunt for a way to get them both out alive. But will a small band of survivors and an army of killer robots turn his mission into maximum slaughter?

First of all, this isn't made by Asylum. It's an old action star fighting zombies and features killer robots. The filmakers were smart enough not to show extended shots of the dead so as not to exploit poor make up, I actually liked what I saw. The robots were somewhat poorly done with CGI (sad that CGI in Jurrassic Park from 2 decades ago looks better than most CGI now!) the movie is not reinventing the wheel, don't have high expectations and you might like it. The saddest part was watching Dolph run, he looks like Herman Munster unfortunately (and I like the guy).

If you've seen all the good ones, this is a pretty good "bad" one.

I've been following Dolph Lundgren's career ever since Rocky IV and Masters of the Universe. Being a zombie fiction writer and long time Zombie movie fan, I thought putting the two together would be perfect. I wasn't disappointed. The movie was very entertaining for both the zombie genre fan and the Dolph fan. Like all of Dolph's movies, it's in my DVD collection proudly.

- Dolph Lundgren: "What do we do with zombies?"
- Robot: "We f--- them up."

In the dog-eat-dog world that is the direct-to-video market, your nightly B-flick selection rides on slim hope and morbid fascination and on withered cachet earned by faded stars. 2013's Battle of the Damned is zombie cinema done on the cheap but isn't as awful as you may assume. Doesn't mean it's a world beater of a movie, either. It stars Dolph Lundgren, fresh off his mumbling his way thru The Expendables franchise. The Expendables often takes place in exotic locales, and I've this mad image in my brain of Dolph finishing his scenes from the latest Expendables and then just parachuting down off Stallone's plane to start shooting this film. He doesn't bother to change wardrobe.

As Battle of the Damned opens, it's divulged thru title cards that Southeast Asia has become the hotbed for biotech corporations that want no part of complying with sanctions and regulations. These are the sort of skeevy places where doomsday scenarios originate. When a research lab accidentally unleashes a pathogen into the urban sprawl, a military blockade cuts off the city from the outside world.

Not that Major Max Gatling (Lundgren) is dissuaded. An ex-Green Beret who'd seen hot action in Mogadishu, Gatling has been contracted by a shady industrialist to sneak into the quarantined zone and sneak out again but with his daughter Jude in tow. What Gatling didn't expect was for the girl (Melanie Zanetti) to be ensconced with a band of survivors calling themselves "the Damned." And that she may not want to leave.

No, it is not the greatest thing since sliced cheese. yes, it is the perfect template for making cheap, profitable action films. Good action, decent effects, Dolph Lundgren. three acts: He fights to get in, he finds his target and we get exposition for the final act, and the final act: fighting to get out. Absolutely one of the best popcorn, mindless flicks ever made. And kudos to Dolph, for saying little, but showing grit when he did speak. the robots were an awesome diversion from the typical zombie apocalypse movie.

"Zombies, killer robots, nice town you got here." After a viral outbreak causes people to turn into zombies, military soldier Max Gatling (Lundgren) is called into battle. Not only must he fight off the zombie army with a few human survivors, but a group of robots that have been trained to kill as well. Even though it sounds made up I swear that is the plot of the movie. I know what your initial thought is but I have actually seen worse. The thing that helped the movie is that it didn't take itself too serious. If they tried to be straight line and make it seem like a real war movie it would have been un-watchable. The fact that they added comedy and made it a little over the top made it seem better then it actually was. I'm not saying this is a good movie at all because this wouldn't be in my top ten choices to watch ever but in terms of Dolph Lundgren movies there have been much worse. Overall, the robots look like a rip off of the Lost In Space robot and the zombie effects are barely passable. A severely low budget World War Z knock off but again I have seen worse. I give it a C.

Apparently, this is the sequel to Robotropolis. The robots in that film wind up in this film, towards the end. The story is fairly basic and often used, send a team to rescue someone behind enemy lines. In this case, a team of mercenaries enters a contained city dealing with the aftermath of a highly contagious pathogen that turns the bitten into zombies. Naturally, the team is cut down to size in a matter of minutes. Soon it's just the team leader (Dolph Lundgren as Major Max Gatling). He searches-searches-searches while evading the "eaters" until happenstance, or bad plotting, requires that he crosses paths with the girl he was set out to retrieve. Turns out, she is not the only survivor. And then he has to deal with a pompous git who acts as their supreme leader. Time is ticking away, the city is destined to be firebombed, will they make it out alive..................!?

Part of the problem with this movie is the beginning, where they get ahead of the story, merging past and present in a confusing fashion. Suddenly they're in the city, in a melee, "there is no backup!", and the camera is wobbling all over the place. The basic structure of the film is fight and run, repeat. When the plot slows down so they can chatter, you might as well get up and wander around. I did find two scenes worth noting, one involves a zombie taking a nap, the other is a fabulous shot of the team reflected in a pool of water. It also irritated me that they defensively said they weren't fighting `zombies.' If it looks and acts like a zombie..................
