3.0 out of 5 stars BECAUSE THERE ARE TARGETS ON EVERY CORNER, May 19, 2012
This review is from: Osombie [Region 2 Format DVD] (DVD)
If you read the manufacturer's description of the movie, you know it is going to be bad. The question is the degree of bad, and does it make for a decent zombie film? Derek Miller (Jasen Wade) is a conspiracy buff who goes to Afghanistan to kill Osama bin Laden because he believes he is still alive. His sister Dusty (Eve Mauro) takes off after him. In all of Afghanistan they manage to both meet up with the same special forces unit killing zombies. One of which is a cute blond named "Tomboy" (Danielle Chuchran) who shoots zombies and lops their heads off with her sword while wearing a ponytail. They are the front line against a world zombie infestation. There is a scene which describes the zombie creation, i.e. "acute biological mutations".

That is pretty much the entire film, hunting and killing zombies. Some of the zombies are fast moving, while others are leg "drag-ers". There is no consistency. While they are supposed to require head shots, some fall down from a sword to the chest. The special effects are CG: helicopters, gun fire, blood splatter, and even the camp fire. The zombie make-up was decent. The plot could have used a little more variation. The dialogue was solid "B" grade which included a series of bad, somewhat politically incorrect old jokes. I used the punch line from one of the jokes as my title. The Afghans speak in Arabic and the film uses subtitles in case you forgot what "Allahu akbar" means.

No sex, nudity or F-bombs that I recall, just some good old fashion blood splatter. Don't spend too much.

This is a great ZOMBIE movie with lots of action packed battle scenes and the very cute gals do much more than their fair share of helping kick some "Osombie Zombie" butt. I recommend seeing "Osombie" to everyone who enjoys being entertained even if the entire story is not actually, "Based on Reality".
I like it, my son likes it and my grandson loves it. See it and you will too.

You really need to post your own reviews instead of piggy backing on other people's reviews. It is not appreciated.
