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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shundead. January 22, 2014
Rise of the Zombies (Nick Lyon, 2012)

By the time the title card with “The Asylum Presents” came up five minutes into this movie, I already knew that its place at the very bottom of my 321-item Netflix Instant queue was well-deserved. I didn't realize it was going to get as much worse as it did, though, and by the time I was through I was sitting there slack-jawed trying to figure out (a) how casting director Gerald Webb (who would soon after cast the immortal Sharknado) managed to convince so many former A-list actors to appear in this piece of s*** and (b) how I managed to avoid stopping it halfway through. Rise of the Zombies runs eighty-nine minutes. It feels more like eighty-nine days.

If you can get through the movie's first scene, with a group of survivors of the zombie apocalypse fleeing through San Francisco to try and make it to Alcatraz—one of the flat-out most ridiculous single scenes I have ever seen in a movie—you'll get to Alcatraz itself, where another small group is holed up trying to find a cure for the plague, led by Dr. Halpern (Star Trek: The Next Generation's LeVar Burton). After everyone in the compound makes a number of, shall we say, questionable choices (this is one of those movies where the plot is driven entirely by people doing stupid things), they...well, continue making stupid decisions. (Spoiler alert!)

I have seen hundreds of zombie movies over the years, and a lot of them have been some of the worst pieces of garbage to which I have exposed myself over the years. Zombie '90: Extreme Pestilence. Zombie Apocalypse and its even worse sequel Redemption. Survival of the Dead, the Romero movie not even diehard fans will defend. Infested. Legion of the Dead.
