The first 10 minutes into the film make you forget that you're watching a zombie movie. Four cops are out for revenge of a fallen officer at the hands of a group of thugs. Once inside the hideout, things go really wrong and they all end up being held hostage. Then all hell breaks loose as the zombies bum rush them all. As you can probably quess, the cops and thugs must now team up if they are to survive the night. The story is well written and concentrates on the characters and their constante struggle to work together. There was constant action with pauses just long enough to catch your breath. The CGI was very limited and hardly noticable. As always in zombie movies, you get tons of blood and gore, but in "Horde" you don't see as much as you'd expect, but you really didn't need it here as it makes it up with powerful scenes and a solid cast. There is a really brutal scene of a zombie getting the bejesus beaten out of him and another disturbing scene that actually makes the surviving posse look less human than the undead creatures chasing after them. There is absolutely no explination as to why the dead are coming back and the ending is left up to your imagination. Overall, "The Horde" is a must see for any zombie film lover and the casual Friday night movie watcher alike. I give it a 3.7 out of 5 stars.
NOTE: This is a French movie and I saw it in it's original audio with subtitles. DO NOT watch this dubbed. It will ruin the feel of the movie.
Dubbed or not it looked pretty good. I'm not that into zombie stuff though since it usually runs through the same formula. Even this looks kinda typical but it looks to be good quality. I don't like the not explaining why or what happens though, but that's just me.
