Finally somebody got this Black Plague thing correct, it was zombies. I really was growing tired of that rat/flea/sanitation global warming nonsense. Eventually they encounter Badriyah (Vivien Vilela) a "witch" who knows some earth magic and more importantly how to deal with zombies. Oh yeah, there are some bad guys after them too.
The film is consumed with them traveling over desolate land. You can easily skip about the first 30 minutes. The movie shows "hordes" of zombies in the distant, but it was too low budget for them to hack up more than a half dozen or so at a time. For historical cheese "Vikingdom" is better. And for zombies, just pick one.
Great historical film. Should be on the "The History Channel" right after "Noah's Ark."
Sex and nudity (Vivien Vilela). Normally I don't comment on the sex scenes, but this one had an incredible amount of slurping kissing. It was funny to listen to. 3 stars for stupidity enjoyment.
Without giving away too much, it's a nice departure from the overused urban zombie apocalypse, at least this one has some scenery. If you have any knowledge about the time period, forget it while you are watching this and you'll be fine. I'm an historian and I kept having to remind myself it was a B grade movie.
Ending is a bit cliche, but what do you expect?
The fight scenes are mostly well-choreographed, even though the fighting style of the warriors is a mix between middle ages sword-fighting and mixed martial arts, but if you aren't bothered by their use of modern military hand-signals and colloquial catch-phrases, then that shouldn't bother you either.
The actors are not bad, but the writing is, so there's not much they can do about that. The cinematography is not bad, either, but I'm baffled by the choice of grayscale and muted color tones. I guess they were going for "bleak," but like their overuse of the phrase "This place is cursed," it's as subtle as a rock to the head.
I like how sincere it is in its attempt to mesh zombie horror with sword-swinging action, and it doesn't quite make the grade. But it is fun and, like I said, a good drinking movie. I giggled all the way through it.
