This is the biggest budget film ever made in Lithuania and the cinematography and general look of the film are its most redeeming values. It looks like more than the B-movie that it is. Oddly, it was directed by a Finnish director (Marko Makilaakso), uses mostly Finnish actors and takes place in Finland during World War II. I guess the financing came from Lithuania and stipulated that the film be shot in Lithuania (near Vilnius, the capital.

I saw this film because of its inclusion on various lists of zombie films, of which I am a fan, so some explanation has to given for these "zombies". They are neither the slow, classic Romero zombies nor the fast "infected" which eventually became a popular variation. I would have to call them simply "undead" as the director, who also wrote the script, took enough liberties with the creatures to make them something of his own. It has become somewhat common to try new things with the zombie concept, though the results generally have not been popular with audiences.

These undead are the result of Nazi medical experiments on unwilling soldiers attempting to make super-soldiers who can only be killed if shot in the head or decapitated. These experiments are carried out in an underground bunker somewhere in Finland. They succeed beyond expectations. these zombie-soldiers can get up from any attack that does not destroy their brain. they are fast and limber and can even jump great heights and distances as usually only vampires can do. They can act in an organized and planned way together. They can fight hand to hand, even fistfight. For these reasons I don't consider them zombies, they're too much like super-strong humans and the result is a WWII action film in most respects.

The film has other problems.

While I have an undeniable soft spot in my heart for the flesh eating undead, the zombie genre has been a bit overworked lately with projects (whether in film, TV, or books) of varying degrees of quality. Let's face it, the walking dead are everywhere! I'm certainly not complaining, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to find entertainment that still feels fresh and vital. With a cover blurb that references HBO's stellar "Band of Brothers," "War of the Dead" seemed like an interesting new addition to the zombie lexicon. The film does not go for the cheesiness or camp factor that you might anticipate when dealing with the assault of WWII monsters. It's a refreshing choice, to be sure, to play things somewhat realistically. Ultimately, though, the movie crosses two genres (war and horror) without really making a strong mark in either. As a B-movie, "War of the Dead" is perfectly serviceable entertainment. I'm pleased enough to have watched it, it just isn't incredibly remarkable or memorable enough to make it a must-own proposition.

The movie starts out on a high note with a chilling teaser scene that hints at the horrors yet to unfold. After this promising introduction, the story settles into its primary groove. An American squad is advancing upon an underground bunker with the intention of destroying it. After dispatching a group of enemy soldiers, it appears that the foes simply won't die. They meet a Russian soldier along the way who may know more than he's telling. Can the living band against the dead? And what atrocities await the survivors once they reach their final destination? Most of the battle scenes are handled capably, there are plenty of armed confrontations. Things are lively throughout, and I found the experience entertaining enough.

In 1941, before the US entry into the war, a small group of US elites, including one Abraham Lincoln Brigade member to make it realistic, join up with some Finnish soldiers to travel 30 km. into Russia along the border in order to destroy a bunker. This bunker was used by the Germans to experiment on Russian soldiers. Our group does not know the details as they encounter killer zombies.

These are not your ordinary zombies. When we first see them they leap 10-20 ft out of trees to attack. I thought I was watching "Planet of the Apes" for a moment. They seem to have superhuman strength and stamina, although the film was not consistent in their portrayal of zombie abilities. Other times they get beat up in a fight like an ordinary human.

This is a fusion war and zombie movie that doesn't work like its counterparts. The ones that worked well were zombie movies with a war background. This one is more of a war movie that has zombie soldiers, not too unlike regular soldiers. Shot almost entirely at night.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

I am very dissapointed by the reviews that have been written about this film.War of the dead is not a muliimillion dollar movie however it has heart and style as well as good sets and acting.My only gripe with the flix was that most of the action was filmed in the dark(oh well)Not everything in the zombie genere has to be flesh ripping gore.This reminded me of the war dead comics of the 70s Back when Tom savini was doing makeup for Death Dream.I urge any horror fan to see this film,I am glad I did.
