YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
This is a movie that tries to do a lot of things. It's a zombie movie, it's a comedy, and it even attempts to be political satire. Does it do all these things well -- no, but it isn't totally bad.
It takes a while to get going. They tease you with zombies at the start of the movie and then the first attack takes place about 30 minutes into the movie. It is a good one, though.
The acting is fairly good with some actors better than others, but no on is terrible. The special effects are good with plenty of gore.
The jokes are uneven and some of the direction is weak in places, but there are worse zombie movies out there. My biggest problem is that it takes too long to get going.
I would agree that it does take some time to get into and if you're in the right frame of mind and don't have different expectations, it can be a fun ride. I was in the right frame of mind for the most part and enjoyed it.
Thanks for the review and a reminder I need to take my DVD copy off one of my piles and put it in my player this weekend. Been wanting to watch it for awhile.
