Try not to fall asleep during this week’s review of Navy Seals vs. Zombies Here’s what it’s about:
“A team of highly skilled Navy SEALS find themselves embarking on the battle of their lives when they come face-to-face with the undead. After a deadly outbreak occurs in New Orleans, the SEALS must fight for their lives, and the city, against an army of zombies.”
This movie is appropriately rated lower than 1 star out of 5 on Netflix. Unfortunately, it’s a snooze fest.
I sigh when I think about the Navy Seals. They looked more like retired military turned soldier of fortune or as if they had just come back from Afghanistan after sitting around doing nothing for months: no PT and too many high-calorie Chicken Ala King MREs. Every last one of them was uninteresting. Instead of hoping they live, I rooted for the zombies to pick them off.
One thing stands out about these zombie movies with the main characters in the military. Uniformed men running around with WMDs against zombies does not carry a movie. It’s like watching my sons play video games. Keeps my attention for about 2 minutes. There needed to be other civilian character we care about. In this case, the Seals stood out as the main focus, overshadowing saving the Vice President, who was as equally boring as they were.
In regards to the zombies, I wondered if they did their own makeup, a thing frequently done in low-budget zombie movies and very noticeable. This movie has not excuse. There were recognizable actors in this one. Zombie movies should NEVER pay has been actors’ salaries over focus on zombie makeup and bloody, half-eaten corpses.
My Rating: 1 out of 5 Bloody Brains
Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
