2012 ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE was brought to us by the SiFi network, so the proverbial bar is already set pretty low... and the opening didn't disappoint. We randomly jump in on three characters walking through what appears to be a ghost town. Then, the zombies attack and the manner with which the characters defend themselves comes off as very poorly choreographed. It just wasn't very believable. Also, you find out pretty fast that the blood and gore effects ain't going to be rockin' any worlds — there's nothing more pathetic-looking than computer generated gunshots and blood bursts. It looked like I was watching a video game.
At least the filmmakers tried to take the proceedings serious enough. There was even some fine character development that helped make me care a bit more for those fighting the zombies than I normally would. And you can never go wrong with casting Ving Rhames in your flick. The dude just owns and oozes bad-ass with ease. None of the other actors had a chance of standing out when sharing the screen with him.
At the end of the day, what this APOCALYPSE brought to the table wasn't quite enough to satisfy this horror fan's appetite. Even Rhames's mighty stature couldn't make up for the lame gore F/X, poor kills, and less than creative storyline. Like I said up top, this never really had much of a chance since it was already filed under the SiFi label. So, yeah, I wouldn't be rushing out to check this one out.
