This week I watched another zombie movie with a decent budget. Battle of the Damned stars Dolph Lundgren and it was awesome! I’m thinking he and Danny Trejo should consider doing a zombie movie together. Anyway, here’s what it’s about:
“When a deadly virus is accidentally released into a major city, its population is quarantined by military blockade. Desperate to rescue his daughter from inside, a wealthy industrialist hires a private military soldier Max Gatling to find the girl and get her out. Max leads a handful of survivors and a ragtag band of robots against an army of the infected.”
Again, not a very original plot, almost sounds like the second Resident Evil. This was one of those movies that you really don’t care about the storyline though. Action packed from start to finish with macho soldiers and rage zombies keeps any of us zombie fanatics happy. What really stands out are the robots, which I wished they would have brought in sooner. Besides adding more gore, it added a few chuckles.
I love Dolph Lundgren. Sure he’s not the greatest actor, but neither is Sylvester Stalone, Arnold Schwarzenegger or most of the action actors from the 80s and 90s. Zombie movies are perfect for him and he’s still hot at the age of 57. I enjoyed this one so much that I’m hoping for a sequel—yeah a sequel with Danny Trejo.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Bloody Brain
