Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Ford Brothers The Dead was most interesting for it’s African setting. Taking a ‘If It ‘Aint Broke…’ approach, The Dead 2 is essentially the same film but in India with a better lead but less appealing support cast and a pace that, at best, could be described as pedestrian. In fact, in a post Walking Dead world, it’s hard to see what a slow paced, mostly gore less film that struggles to have more than a handful of Zombies onscreen at once offers as it’s USP other than it’s setting. Sadly other than lead Millson, the cast are forgettable and lack chemistry. It’s not all bad – the film looks beautiful and the visual FX punch above their weight but other than that I can’t find much to recommend this.
Best Bit: The film is well shot
