“Iu0026#39;m a huge zombie movie fan but even I recognize that the whole sub-genre is saturated and there are some real stinkers out there at the moment. Sadly Redcon-1 certainly comes under that category.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt tells the tale of a group of soldiers sent into the u0026quot;Quarantineu0026quot; zone to retrieve a person of interest. The rest, pretty much writes itself and is a mixture of generic and really quite terrible.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe zombies arenu0026#39;t your traditional type, in fact they arenu0026#39;t even your modern sprinting kind either. Here youu0026#39;ll see the undead doing everything from wielding weapons, communicating with one another and even sitting watching porn (Not joking). They truly are some of the worst zombies Iu0026#39;ve seen on screen.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cast are your usual rabble of stereotypes and are so generic they could have interchanged some cast members mid film and Iu0026#39;d not even have noticed. The leading man is the only one who delivers, and thatu0026#39;s only noticeable because of just how bad everyone else is by comparison.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film has real video game influences, the Telltale Walking Dead and Dead Island clearly had something to do with it both in content and musical score. That worked really well to be honest, but not well enough to turn the movie around.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eInterestingly the movie gets better the further in it goes, in fact by the end I kind of felt a bit bad giving it such a low rating. Make no mistake however even near the end there are some truly moronic moments.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot the worst out there, but still pretty dire. With a better writer (And cast) this perhaps could have been something bearable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Good:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGreat influencesu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNice scoreu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Bad:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWorst…..zombies……everu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAwful charactersu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePlot is a disjointed messu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFar too long”
