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.

Zombies are all the rage these days. Why, it seemed like just yesterday that vampires were en vogue, what with the TWILIGHT film series in full hype. Werewolves? Meh. They've gone to the dogs. Today, the best scares are found in the ranks of the undead. Even AMC TV is getting into the craze with its stellar "The Walking Dead" program. I guess it was only a matter of time before some enterprising filmmakers figured out it was time to revisit the depths of history for some previously unexplored moments in our zombie past. You can bet the primary merchants of evil - the Nazis - experimented on re-animating flesh. After all, what possible malevolence didn't those dastardly villains exploit?

(NOTE: the following review will contain minor spoilers necessary for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then feel free to either read elsewhere or skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. However, if you can accommodate a modest hint of things-to-come, then read on.)

The time is March, 1941, approximately half a year before the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor and draw America into the Second World War. Captain Martin Stone (played by Andrew Tiernan) heads a small squad of American soldiers alongside a contingent of Finnish men on a classified mission to destroy a secret Nazi bunker. But before you can say "about face," the platoon is shattered by gunfire. Before the night is over, Stone and the remaining survivors will have to join forces in battling the world's greatest threat: Nazi zombies!

The film opens with a written script that claims that Nazis experimented on the recently deceased in 1939.

Okay, so, I'm a major zombie fan. Have been since I was 4yrs old & Thriller aired on MTV. With that said....I bought this Blu-ray + DVD pakage today. Just finished watching it. War Of The Dead isn't the worst zombie flick I've seen. But it lacks some things to be what it could have been (classic). The case/cover art is great! But too often these days, movies make awesome case covers designs. But end up being bad. War Of The Dead has a great idea....Killing Nazi zombies. That's a win-win! The picture quality is really good. The sound is good. But what lacks is more depth to the story. More action as well! It starts off with a little bit of action. Then quickly slows down. This movie is 86mins long too. And through out most of the 86mins there is only a tiny bit of action here & there. The actors aren't the best, but not the worst. Some better than others. The zombies are probably the most human-like zombies I've ever seen in a film! They don't exactly go right for the brains. Instead, they will punch people, slam them into walls,ect... They walk,run,ect.. just like you & I. And they even hide in trees and stuff. Being set in the 1940's/WW2 period is cool. They did a pretty decent job with making the actors clothing & weaponry what it was like in that time/era. Despite soldiers fighting zombies. You'll likely be like me, scratching your head at the end. Thinking what did I just watch!?! You watch a group of soldiers decrese in number after quick altercations w/ an opposing army, and then some zombie soldiers. Then it's down to 2 troops & a Russian soldier that joins the 2 US soldiers. Along the way to the main objective (a bunker which drugged soldiers, which turned them to zombies). The Russian soldier finds his girlfriend. Read more ›
