Comments– The title should give away exactly what this movie is about. Unfortunately, it doesn’t tell you just how shitty 90% of the acting is, and how poorly the movie is written (well, I guess the title does give both of these clues now that I think about it). As I mentioned, I am a zombie fanatic, and that is the only reason I picked this one up as a rental. The only thing this movie does well is the over-the-top action sequences. These are fun, and there is some humor spread throughout, especially by one character (the only truly great actor in the movie), but the fact that these action sequences are happening on a plane requires a TON of suspension of disbelief, which the movie doesn’t really earn. A mediocre story through and through. Mediocre.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
