More Than a Little Disappointing

Although I am not a big fan of "Zom-Coms" (Zombie-Comedies) after seeing the high rating on IMDb I decided to give this one a try. Needless to say I found it to be more than a little disappointing for several reasons. First, it is my opinion that this particular sub-genre is a very difficult undertaking to begin with due to the simple fact that zombies are not typically "funny" and any comedy at their expense risks lessening their overall value--and subsequently that of the movie as a whole. Therefore, I believe that it is extremely important to have the audience invested in the main characters as their welfare or predicament is quite often the key to the entire film. Unfortunately, in this particular case the two main characters named "Woody Invincible" (Jordan Chan) and "Crazy Bee" (Sam Lee) were hardly worth any concern or sympathy as they were nothing more than mere street thugs. Perhaps if they had been "adorable losers" it might have changed things but as it was I certainly didn't care for them one way or the other. As a matter of fact, if anything the only characters of any interest was a mugging victim named "Rolls" (Angela Tong) and an abused wife named "Mrs. Kui" (Dorothy Elias-Fahn) due in part because of their unfortunate circumstances but also because but they both lent some nice scenery to an otherwise drab atmosphere. And then there was the awful decision to give ridiculous names to the characters like "Jelly" (Suk Yin Lai) and the aforementioned "Rolls". Quite frankly, I found this action to be both cheap and childish. Ditto the entire movie. Below average.

The Undead and a whole lotta fun!!

Having recently gotten into the asian horror genre, I finally had a chance to watch this movie. Bio Zombie is original in the way it blends comedy, horror, action.....and it works!!

I really liked the transition the film. When you meet Woody Invincible and Crazy Bee, they are far from winning any moral awards. This provides so much humor especially their "tough" guy personas, so you naturally take a liking to the two. Follow that with crossing paths with a couple of gals including hottie babe Rolls, and you have really funny moments!! The way director Wilson Yip progresses the story, you find out about the characters and then he adds the deadly biochemical plot which takes the film to another level. It's not a horror film having you shut your eyes or watch through the cracks of your fingers, but you find yourself drawn into the story following the plight of our unlikely heroes.

VERY good chemistry between the cast. Jordan Lee (Woody) and Sam Lee (Bee) really seem like two buddies who get into all sort of trouble. Their personalities, facial expressions, mannerisms are all assets to their respective characters. Angela Tong Ying-Ying (Rolls) is good as well and flaunts her sex appeal very well! The bathroom scenes with her and Woody are hilarious! Even the Sushi guy plays a vital part!

Credit goes to Yip for giving a shopping mall a very unique and creepy look due to great cinematography. As more and more zombies appear, the twist from comedic entertainment shifts to "struggle to survive" entertainment. The great thing is this film doesn't take itself too seriously and it looks like they had a lot of fun shooting this film. Trust me, you'll have fun seeing it too.

Rare Little Gem

Although not the standard zombie splat-fest which i had hoped for, I've gotta say I totally enjoyed this quirky little flick. Apparently made on a shoestring, the whacked out, neon dripping, Plaza setting offers an almost halucinatory overtone to the proceedings. The story throws a small group of young HK shopkeepers into a siege by the undead. Kind of plays as a combination of DOTD and Night of the demons, helped by a heavy dose of HK youth culture and comedy, very reminiscent of that in other HK comedy-horrors (Mr Vampire springs to mind.) Despite wanting a bloodbath, I couldn't help but to appreciate it for what it is - entertainment.

By no means up there with DOTD, The Beyond or any other of the slew of late 70's early 80's zombie cannibal chunk blowers - but still, more than enough of a breath of fetid air to keep zombie fans ticking over. To summarize - Great 90 mins worth. Not taxing on the mind. Entertaining characters (great subs!). But if you want gore - it's back to an umpteenth viewing of "The Beyond"... Well worth seeking out if you're looking for something different. Well, I liked it anyway...
