Too bad it all felt so empty.

After dispatching a group of enemy soldiers, it appears that the foes simply won't die.

War Of The Dead isn't the worst zombie flick I've seen.

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.

Undead nazis are fast becoming the cinematic go-to bad guy. It makes sense combinging one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen with the menace of them returning from the grave, hungry for flesh.
One might be tempted to think this is a formula that you simply can't get wrong...

Boils and ghouls, I give you War of the Dead, billed as the most expensive movie ever to be made in Lithuania.

The film comes with the following synopsis:
"In 1939 `anti-death' medical experiments were performed on captured Russian soldiers by Gestapo officers in the opening salvos of World War II. Two years later allied Finnish and American forces are on a mission to seize an underground enemy bunker on the Soviet border - but they must face attack by a far deadlier force - the flesh-hungry victims of those SS experiments."

The trailer and the poster look tremendous and the inclusion of former World's Strongest Man Jouko Ahola, who can clearly be seen on the poster, ramped up my anticipation of this movie.

Despite being a Lithuanian movie helmed by Lithuanian director Marko Makilaasko, War of the Dead is shot in English and features Andrew Tiernan (Dead Cert, 300, Bathory, The Bunker) in a leading role alongside a largely Finnish cast.
The inclusion of English actors taking on the roles of Americans left me cringing somewhat and I find myself curious as to what our American cousins will make of this aspect of the film.
It was commented on that many of the undead aren't actually German/ nazis. This is explained in the opening introduction to the movie and ought not to give the viewer too much cause for concern.

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.
