Customer Reviews

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

One scene was just wrong and I didn't like it at all.

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.

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!

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.

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.
