It's a zombie movie. That sums things up entirely.
Dead Rising: Watchtower (2015) doesn't add up to the genre. It's, yet, another zombie flick. Nope, it isn't bad. It's just another one.
I don't have much to say about it. People who likes zombie movies will get entertained. Also, I have to mention that this is a movie based on a game and, surprisingly, it's a fine movie!
You'll get Dead Rising (talking about the game now) references everywhere. Sometimes, it's even kinda annoying. Not sure about Frank West's character in the movie, though. He let me down a bit.
Graphical effects were fine, but, sometimes, blood spatter can look unrealistic, because it's rendered as cheap effects.
Overall, Dead Rising: Watchtower is fine. Oh, yeah... it's a zombie movie!

It's a zombie movie. That sums things up entirely.
Dead Rising games don't exactly have the most serious adventure or horror story. After all, this is the franchise that has the idea of strapping battery into wheelchair to make an electric battering ram. It operates in this often ludicrous logic, although it also tries to shoehorn a cumbersome amount of narrative and plods the pace in result.
The story follows Chase, an ambitious reporter who is taping in the medical center aid. Zombrex, a medicine to stop zombification, is introduced and administered in this downtown site. Unfortunately, accident occurs and Chase finds himself scrambling to survive and get the word out. It does resemble the set-up of the games as one person is trapped in large setting.
There are multitudes of problem in writing. It may mimic the appearance, but the script is tumbling between comically ridiculous and over-the-top misplaced drama. At one point, it adds military propaganda which contradicts the supposed quirky style. The game itself doesn't venture too much into thriller and this is a movie where it opens with clown zombie, so the drama feels very detached.
Acting is a miss most of the time. There's barely any character worth rooting for as they are either firmly one dimensional or simply annoying. The original hero Frank West is relegated to a crude talk show, but then the movie introduces Dennis Haysbert, a veteran actor to build conspiracy subplot. It's as though the movie takes the combining gimmick from the game too literal and throws tons of ideas to what sticks.
Thankfully, the action is pleasantly done. Cinematography is good, definitely better than most game inspired movie. It often creates fine spectacle, especially in one particular continuous shot. Practical effect and CGI work better than expected as well, delivering dismemberment and bloody scenes with fine commitment. There's more effort invested on the violence than anything, which is fan pleasing, at the very least.
With a stuttering pace and two hours runtime, the movie does feel bloated. However, for fans of horror or the game, there is plenty of gleeful and numbing carnage here.
So, it is not as I am not familiar with dead rising, since I played first dead rising game on xbox 360 when I was a lot younger, so I have some nostalgic childhood memories about dead rising.
When I saw that there is a movie about dead rising, I was kind a excited and I decided to watch it.
It is not like I didn't watch it all, but it kind a didn't give me the effect after which I was.
Overall it gave me kind a feeling that it is game movie, it is kind a good in some way , but there were so many theatrical moments that I felt bad about them. Speaking about movie's story, well I felt that it was rather promising, but that is about it, what is not good at all. I hoped for something more interesting, creative, wise. What can I say, weapons which wouldn't work in real life, or stupid decisions made by key persons, that is not cool at all.
Of course there were some interesting stuff too, like zombies who are smarter than usual ones or scenes from TV studio. As well this movie didn't go cheap for brutality, a lot of bloody scenes and a lot of action.
I personally liked this movie more than disliked, though it was a bit of disappointing, since I hoped for something more wise. If you like zombie movies or you have played dead rising, well you can go and watch it, just so you have seen it, but if you have never played dead rising or you are not fan of zombie movies, you may found this movie a big waste of your time. Though the main actress is really hot, so yeah for her you can go and watch it!
In my opinion this movie goes from 5 to 6 out of 10 in my scale.
