This is the story of a building that is part of a "terror experiment" where an explosion happens and then certain people get infected and become feral. You know what happens next.
So, you take some decent actors like Judd Nelson, Robert Carradine, C. Thomas Howell and Jason London… you see their stars have fallen and you have get them cheap. And then you throw a script at them, as they take the bait. Voila! Another infection, pseudo-zombie film.
As I say, what a waste of talent. These guys are actually decent actors, and to put them in something like this gives the film too much credit and tarnishes whatever good name they have. We have seen this story dozens, hundreds, maybe a thousand times. The plot is so unoriginal, it is a surprise it was even made and a bigger surprise that it was distributed. I see several movies a week, and this is among the worst I saw this year.
"They'll label me a terrorist but I'm a patriot." After a disgruntled veteran unleashes a virus in an office building in order to expose a government secret things don't go as planned. A group of uninfected survivors try to escape the quarantined building and get to safety before it's too late. I had no idea what to expect from this movie at all. I have been watching almost everything before watching the preview to help me have a clean slate when I start. I saw the cast and thought this may be OK. I wish I would have seen the preview first. I am not sure if they were going for a serious movie or a over-the-top cheesy comedy movie. I hope to God it was the latter because if they tried to make this a serious movie they failed. If they went for a comedy type movie they did a little better but this is a few steps above the Sci-Fy channel movies (because of the cast). I really thought this was going to be a zombie movie but it turned out to be a comedy (?) version of "Quarantine". Overall, not my kind of movie but some people will like it. I give it a C-.
Well whats to say, this movie kept me entertained for awhile, the cgi, the explosions, and the acting, was hilarious, oh wait, its not a comedy…thats right it's supposed to be serious zombie flick, i give this one two thumbs down. The camera was too shaky i think they did that so they could camouflage the gun shots that you couldn't see, CGI was just horrible, I mean really the explosions just looked as fake as a some cartoons iv'e seen, not to forget shaking the camera to make it look like a bomb went off come on now have a little self respect, overall i gave this movie 2 votes out of 10, only because it actually made it to movie.
I knew going in this movie would not be high budget and I like watching b type movies. This was not even worthy of a b rating. I could tell right away this was going to be real bad when the camera man has to use the camera to pull off effects by shaking it and using extreme blurry close ups that are way too fast. This piece of crap should have never even made it to DVD. I agree with what other said about the actors. There were a couple that I thought since they were in the movie. It couldn't be too bad. I was WRONG!…………. Shame on anyone who is currently renting or selling this movie. I am a sucker for a good or half way good Zombie or Vampire movie. This movie was neither, even though they lead you to believe it was. They were like an infected rabid animal or something and not even a good one. The plot was bad the make up was bad and even the acting from a couple of seasoned actors. I hope they were roped into this movie and did not do it by choice. I think the budget on this film was a little over a million dollars. I know that's not a lot of money for a movie these days but I have seen decent horror movies made with a lot less and it turned out better than this. I suggest finding another movie and let this one die!
