In this ferocious sequel to the worldwide horror hit, The Dead, The Ford Brothers take their chilling vision of the zombie apocalypse to a different country and a whole new level: As the infectious epidemic spreads through India, an American turbine engineer (Joseph Millson of Casino Royale) learns that his pregnant girlfriend is trapped near the slums of Mumbai. Now, one man must battle his way across a 300-mile wasteland of the ravenous undead and into a nightmare city seething with flesh-eating madness. The Dead 2 puts the Ford Brothers unique apocalyptic vision on a far bigger canvas in terms of breathtaking scope, thrilling action , death-defying stunts, emotional resonance and spine-tingling fight.

The movie was filmed in the part of Rajasthan known as The Land of the Kings. This is a vast, arid countryside with lots of rocks and stony ridges, few trees and a general orange-brown desert look. To the untrained eye (mine included) it looked almost interchangeable with the arid lands of Burkina Fasso where the first film was shot. Though I understand the opportunities for filming that a wide, empty landscape offers and appreciate the rugged beauty of the area, setting it in a very different climate such as southern India might have made it easier to tell the two movies apart. A great part of the first film was its novel setting but this film lessens the impact of that by being in such a similar place.
The use of non-actors is criticized here but I found them effective enough. It's the zombies who seem non-effective. They are mindbogglingly slow and have the same sideways wobble as their African counterparts but seem so much less threatening here. In Africa they seemed to be a bit quicker and more dangerous. Here, if you get yourself trapped in a small room with one door and there are lots of zombies outside, you just open the door and go out normally, just pushing the zombies away or brushing them aside. The zombies really need to be made to be scarier than this.Also, I know it's unfair to criticize zombie movies on reality-checks, but this is portrayed as a bite-spread infection not an airbourne virus. Yet it was brought to Mumbai by one person and is 300 miles away in a sparsely populated part of India the next day? Pretty unlikely. The film also has the usual zombie flick cliche of guns that seem to have unlimited ammo.
This does not mean there aren't some standout scenes like Nicholas' attempt to escape via a motorized paraglider; his girlfriend Ishani's questioning of all the religious beliefs she has learned from her Brahman father; or an unforgettable scene where Nicholas tries to help a woman and her child escape from a wrecked car. The ending gets mixed reactions from fans but that's all up to the viewer. There's still a lot of good in this film, including a terrific score by Imram Ahmed, enough to recommend it. I just wish it didn't feel so much like the first film.
I recommend this if you liked the first one. Plenty of gore too!
