Deadlands 2: Trapped ReviewAwesome. Superb. Interesting. These are words that come nowhere close to describing Deadlands 2: Trapped. The first clue we got to this film being sub-par is the opening scene. We're greeted with a lovely introduction to the movie by an Elvira-esque host who gives away plot points even before the movie starts. It goes downhill from there.
The plot of this movie is nothing original. The government unleashes a zombie virus on a small town. A few survivors take refuge inside a movie theater, and that's pretty much it. We found ourselves quite bored with this flick, as nothing seemed to happen at all. Just a whole lot of screaming and asking 'What are we going to do?'. Our favorite part of the film is [SPOILER] when the government agents call the survivors, and tell them all of their plans, then hang up. No, really. That's it. They literally called the survivors just to tell them their evil plans.
The acting is painful. However, it may not have been if the dialogue didn't include the word 'F*ck' in every sentence. We're not kidding either, it seemed like every single line had a 'mother f*cking' this, or a 'we're f*cked' that... it got really old really fast. But even ignoring the dialogue this movie has it's painful acting jobs (see the 9-1-1 operator for an example)
This flick does have some decent gore, but the zombie make-up is somewhat lacking. The zombies look like kids out on Halloween and that, combined with the zombies not acting like zombies, is enough to further reduce interest in this movie.
In case you haven't caught on yet, we didn't like this movie. We wouldn't recommend it zombie fans or horror fans. If you're really desperate to see a zombie movie, you might want to take a look, but there are plenty of others out there that are worth your time over this.
Overall Score: 1/5 Star
Best Zombie Kill: N/A
