“Now THIS is how it’s done.”

Director: Breck Eisner.

Cast: Timothy ‘the awesome’ Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle ‘the awesome’ Panabaker, Joe Anderson.

What’s It About

A peaceful small town. Everything is perfect, until when a rather zombie-ish guy interrupts a baseball match with a shotgun in his hand, it don’t need to be said that the Sheriff(Olyphant) saves the day. Similar unusual occurrence takes place, good guys going bad and killing their own families. The sheriff and his deputy sets out to find what’s wrong, as they were getting close, the government’s involvement turns the situation into an absolute chaos. And they all might just have a bigger problem than zombies(or infected)!

“Both of them did great. And the deputy here had to save the sheriffs ass a couple of times.”

The Pros

It’s been a while since I saw a strong-ass genre flick(last one was Dread). Much like Dread, the director and the actors(especially Olyphant) does an amazing job to capture the tone of the film. It is safe to say, they MADE the film.

“Here’s a Olyphant badass-ness for ya.”

The scenes that were supposed to be really intense were shot wonderfully. There were like 4 awesome scenes that had me at the edge of my seat and I just didn’t wanted them to end. And again, much thanks goes to Timothy Olyphant for his wonder performance that made those scenes look badass. After this and The Perfect Getaway, I am a big fan of the guy. By the way, “the almost nuts chopped off” scene was so fucking awesome that I had a bright look(figuratively of course) on my face the whole time. Oh and not to mention the “chaos caused by the government scene”.

“Holy Sweet Nuts! BTW, the whole scene was good marvelous.”

This movie just walks with the cliches yet making them interesting and not annoying. Hell yeah goes for the good job on jump scenes. I really hate jump scares that gives you a sudden “BOO!” with loud music and ends with the same way it started. But there were 4 or 5 of these sorta moments and they ACTUALLY WORKED. Yes, I’m admitting it, the “BOO!” worked!

The Cons

The CGI explosion near the end(you’ll know what I’m talking about) looked fake-ish. Nothing big, it’s just minor nit-picking from my part.

WTF!?

The government was freakier than the zombies!!!

“We are here to help. Or not.”

Gore & Violence

Decent amount of very well-done gore and plenty of awesome violence to be had here. This one is a WIN.

Overall

This is obviously one of the better remakes(I never saw the original of this one). Get yourself ready for a good time because I think this a strong and well-done film that’s supposed to make everyone happy, yes even people who are not a big fan of horror. A 8/10 for me.

If you’ve noticed, I am really excited about the ‘Elm Street’ remake. But because I don’t live in USA I’m gonna have to wait until it comes out here. Now I’m the type of guy who likes to see 5 posters and 2 trailers before the movie’s release. That is enough for me and anything beyond that leaves me pissed off. Now, Bloody-Disgusting is releasing 15 clips of this remake everyday and all I can say right now is “stop fuckers”! I didn’t see any of those videos of course. But  don’t get the point why so many clips need to be released. It destroys the vibe, mystery of a film. Same shit happened with Clash of The Titans. People tells me to just ignore it as it is none of my business, those clips are aimed for other people. And I know that, but I cannot help but freak out every time I see all these videos released. And that’s why I love Christopher Nolan. Besides how awesome Nolan’s movies are, they are always a secret and you need to find what it is about AFTER watching the movie.

I have the script of the ‘Elm Street’ remake. So, I read one-fourth of it, obviously I don’t wanna spoil myself and ruin the movie, but I hear those videos are also showing 2 of the kills I read. I read that part of the  script to check if it’s good or not. But the videos are RUINING IT! WHAT’S THE POINT ANYWAYS!??!

Share what you think. You are against it or in favor of it?

The trailer of Jonah Hex is yet to be released. The first trailer for the upcoming “Jonah Hex” will be debuting on Syfy on April 29, 2010. Until then, check out this 10 second promo trailer for the well, trailer, and btw it looks sorta badass:
