It follows 2 young shopkeepers in a Hong Kong mall who can't seem to stay out of trouble. When they hit a pedestrian who, unbeknownst to them, is going to turn into a zombie, they hide him in their trunk. Returning to the mall, the zombie escapes and traps many of the shop keepers inside. Pretty soon our heros are leading the escape mission since they have experience killing zombies - from video games of course!
This film has stupendous lighting, a great story line, and some of the best written characters I've seen in a long time. You will actually care for them and be in suspense when a zombie pops up hoping noone gets bitten.
Some of the camera work is sub-par but there are lots of inventive shots. This zombie film does not have loads of gore like some others, but it does contain huge amounts of intentional comedy that will make you beg for a sequal.
The voice acting (for english dubbing) is stupendous I might add. Their dialog flows nicely with the actors expressions and moods, and even seem fitting voices for the actors.
This film will be a cherished part of my collection and is a true asset to the comedy-horror genre!
Zombie kills some guy.
Then tons of goofy non zombie related stuff happens.
You forget you are even watching a zombie movie.
It becomes a HK slacker comedy.
You kinda get into the characters.
Then all hell breaks loose.
Suddenly this Abbot and Costello episode is Abbot and Costello meet Zombies, and then people start dying left and right. And this silly movie suddenly gets hardcore and turns into a real zombie movie with really silly looking FX, yet it's too late.
Like how Giant Robo started of all innocent and fun and suddenly became hardcore and heartbreaking, the same happens here.
Some interesting zombie ideas. Some truly funny moments.
And one of the best endings I've ever seen.
One of those hidden gems you'll never forget.
The two central characters are a couple of young punks who go by the names "Crazy Bee" and "Woody Invincible". The two own a small DVD counter in a shopping mall. While driving a car on an errand for a friend, the guys accidentally hit a man who was standing in the middle of the road. The man survives and while trying to help him up, our two heroes feed him a soft drink that happens to be a biochemical experiment engineered by some Mafioso types. The two guys drive the man back to the mall in an effort to clean him up, but then of course the man soon turns into a zombie. Soon, the contagion spreads and the mall is overrun by hordes of the undead.
Anyone sitting down to watch Bio-Zombie should not expect a horror movie. It's a zombie movie but not a horror movie. Huh? Well imagine if Kevin Smith had decided to add packs of zombies into his movie "Mallrats" and that will give you a pretty good idea of the tone of this film. Witty dialogue, vanguard youth, clever pop culture references all of it done Hong-Kong style. Even though more of a comedy than a horror film, this certainly doesn't disappoint in the gore department. Lots of arterial sprayings and gut-munching Romero-style.
The fact that there's no zombie action until the midway point did nothing to curb my interest, the first half of the film was very good at providing laughs and setting the tone.Read more ›
