When the last evacuation flight out of war torn Africa crashes just off the coast, an American air force engineer Lieutenant Brian Murphy (Rob Freeman) is left to survive in a land where the dead are returning to life and attacking and eating the living.
This movie is like a video game at the start where you start off with very little including information and must find food, water, shelter, supplies etc......, this is where it's strongest in the case of what any of us could do in the same situation, the landscape and environment are beautiful but ultimately deadly, the zombies are everywhere (the nice slow types) and are relentless, you don't don't know where you are and there is literally nothing out there but wide open terrain and the odd village but always zombies.
Our lieutenant meets up with a soldier who is searching for his son after his village erupts in violence and zombies and they journey together initially reluctantly and head towards where the soldier believes his son has been taken by locals, the journey is the story but the environment is the killer here (you actually feel hot just watching the movie), the effects and gore are quite well done, the movie is grim, could have been better but I believe it's a zombie movie you need to see but will leave you feeling cold unlike the location.
The main character is quite likeable and acts exactly like anybody probably would and if you're wondering where you saw him before he played the old Ryan in Saving Private Ryan.
Would I watch it again like some other zombies movies I would have to say no but I'm glad I saw it though. Grim.
