3.0 out of 5 stars It's average zombies movie April 7, 2013
By S. Der
This movie was okay. It's better than most zombies movies, but not as good as good A movies. This is still a B movie overall, so it is not a best seller. It's just another zombie movie that is good in terms of zombies movies, but isn't memorable or award winning. Hope that makes sense.

If you look at the cover, you would think that Danny Trejo was on a one man mission to stop the zombies in this movie. Also makes you believe, he is the hero of the movie. Too bad that's not true. I dont know who did this cover, but Danny isn't going to be in the movie long. As many people have said, he is in the movie, but he's not the hero or there long - it's almost like he did a cameo for this movie. Then, after he's gone, the movie will continue on without him perfectly. So, let's say he more of a supporting character in this movie than the hero.

As for the story, I would say it's pretty good. It has your basic characters trying to find a cure and to find a way to escape from the zombies. The acting is okay. It's not over the top, but not as bad as many other zombies movies. I would go as far to say it was great! The endding was bad and a typical endding for these zombies movies.

I would recommend this movie because it's one of the better B rated zombie movies out there.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Curmudgeon review February 21, 2013
I really enjoy zombie movies, that said, I hold these
caliper of actors to more than a B movie, and that
is what we have a "B" The cover of
the movie box suggests
Danny Trejo has the lead part, nope.
These zombies can run, swim and scale buildings
and structures like Spiderman. The make-up effects
were very well done. The shoot-outs are intense because
everyone is shooting unlimited ammo and not changing
clips. There are mistakes, at one point, one can see
lots of moving cars going across the SF Bay Bridge,
when the city is supposed to be dead. Gross factor is
pretty high. The unbelievable? Sure a guy can fly
a helocopter right after having his left arm axed off!

4.0 out of 5 stars So help me this Asylum movie is almost good September 24, 2013
The Asylum. Love them or hate them, you have almost certainly encountered this studio's work at least once in the form of those knockoff scifi movies that are shoveled out in order to confuse gift-hunting oldsters. If you woke up Christmas morning to a stocking with Transmorphers in it when you asked for Transformers, you probably curse the Asylum's name, but if you love the scholck filmmaking of the 60s then the Asylum is one of the few studios carrying on the tradition of having a cast of nobodies run around outside scared of something silly.

Except in this case.

The first thing you will notice about Rise is that there are many names in the cast that you will recognize. Most Asylum films contain one washed up famous actor, but Rise contains Levar Burton, Danny Trejo, Mariel Hemmingway, and Ethan Suplee! Some of those people have careers still! You will be further shocked to see that it is not a conspicuous ripoff of any particular film or television series; while it's initial title of The Dead Walk suggests a halfhearted mockbusting of The Walking Dead, this movie is also a Syfy original and as such had its name changed for TV. The end result is a zombie film that is more or less original, albeit slavishly adherent to all the tropes of Zombie cinema.

The third thing you will notice is that the folks at the Asylum seem to want to break from their TV-friendly roots with this one. For those not in the know, the Asylum started life as a film-making branch of Blockbuster video, and as such their films have always been pretty PG-13 (even when they get an R). This movie, however, gleefully rains bloodshed and body horror upon the viewer as zombies are shot, non-zombies are mauled, and horrible stuff of every stripe happens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Ethan July 5, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hemingway is the protagonist (not Danny Trejo) and does a fine with the material; however, Ethan Supple has a difficult time being a tough guy and is better suited as Randy--wakey wakey hands off snakey--on My Name is Earl. Yet I'm glad I've added this movie to my collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much to see here May 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well this isn't the worst zombie film I have ever seen, but that's not saying too much. It is a little silly, but generally plays it straight. Pretty low budget with a contrived storyline that barely holds together. Danny Trejo is certainly not the star of the film and has a limited role. I cannot really recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE DON'T FEED THE ZOMBIES February 17, 2013
I didn't realize this was an Asylum production until after I purchased it. That said, I was not disappointed. The action takes place San Francisco. It is implied that due to government cutbacks (blame the Tea Party first crowd) the water supply got infected which lead to the zombie outbreak. There is a group doing research on Alcatraz headed by Dr. Lynn Snyder (Mariel Hemingway). There is another guy trying to develop a vaccine at Berkley who makes regular transmissions. When zombies start floating up at Alcatraz, that forces the two groups to come together.

I like the zombie effects. We had the split in half crawling zombie; the limb out of joint zombie; a suicide zombie; a new born baby zombie; and an amputation to prevent infection. Being California, long handled tasers and not AR-15s are the weapons of choice versus zombies. There is a an over abundance of zombie action. In one weird unconvincing scene Hemingway pulls a knife on Trejo who then looked scared. The dialouge needed some improvement, but considering it was Asylum, I can't complain. The really bad special effect was the new born baby, which was obviously a doll from behind, and a several months old live baby from the front. It gave me a chuckle. Trejo's appearance is slightly more than a cameo.

Also known as "Dead Walking" this appears to be the opening of a series like "Walking Dead."

Parental Guide: TV-14. No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Plenty of zombie violence.
