The acting is great and the action is non stop and extremely lethal! A very, very entertaining movie.
That said, "Devil's Playground" is a great zombie movie. Note that I didn't say "a great movie" but rather "a great zombie movie." If I want to see a great movie, I'll watch something like "The Mayor of Casterbridge." Face it, there are only so many plot devices possible in a zombie movie - the number one being which of the lead characters will make it, which will not. So it was with "Devil's Playground." Yes, you can pretty well tell who definitely won't make it - e.g., the elite couple who got rescued and tagged along with their rescuers looking for a chance to ditch them and save themselves; but you can't always tell who maybe won't make it - e.g., Steve, best friend of Angie' husband Joe; or Angie' brother Matthew or his wife (I never did get her name); or Cole, the only employee of N-Gen to survive, N-Gen being the biotech company whose experiments in marketing a new high-energy supplement created the zombies in the first place. In other words, in terms of zombie movies: who will get bitten, who will not.
One of the things that makes a great zombie movie great is atmosphere. "Resident Evil" had it, as did "28 Days Later" - and so, too, does "Devil's Playground" have it. First there's the sterile atmosphere of the company's lab; then the atmosphere of the city as Angie and her sister-in-law attempt to escape the madness; then the atmosphere of the countryside, where all zombies eventually congregate; and, finally, the atmosphere of the warehouse district, where a helicopter is known to sit. So, of course, all roads lead all characters to that enchanted rooftop where rescue for anyone who makes it is only a flight in a whirlybird away. Or not.
Along with the handling of the usual zombie elements, "Devil's Playground" has at least two trump cards: Danny Dyer and Craig Fairbrass. So don't anybody dare diss the acting! Dyer as Joe and, especially, Fairbrass as Cole are nothing short of superb! Oh, by the way, here's another news flash: if a movie - even a zombie movie - is lucky enough to get such actors as Danny Dyer and Craig Fairbrass, it has to put a little extra meat on the characters' psyches to better showcase their talent. Translated for twelve year olds: yeah, it's gonna get a little boring for you.
