Patient Zero (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Patient Zero is part 28 Days later, part Day Of The Dead. The problem is the film feels like a bottle episode of a TV series, created to save money, with almost no outside shots and an ending that just happens without really resolving anything.  Also considering the actors involved (Smith, Dormer) the acting is pretty rubbish, saved only by a really fun turn by  Stanley Tucci as a super infected.  There’s good idea here (although it treads very close to films we’ve seen before) but the films budget (or lack of) does little to help realise these ideas.

Best Bit: Stanley Tucci

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: 28 Days Later, Day Of The Dead, Train to Busan

5 out of 10 stars
