Pandemic ... Zombie bash fest

PANDEMIC gives zombies a bad name. Director John Suits derives great
pleasure in showing humans beating the crap out of zombies, including using a rifle and baseball bat to bash the skulls of zombies. 
   Scenes of zombie attacks are nicely spread out to give viewers ample opportunities to enjoy blood splatters. 
   The film shows zombies as mindless fools eager to get their teeth kicked out, but they must have seen their counterparts in I Am Legend and decided to set trap to ensnare human survivors in Los Angeles.
    Dr Lauren Chase (Rachel Nichols) is assigned to an extraction unit of a survivors' camp to retrieve survivors. 
  They leave the camp in a bus with metal bars on the windows, but the ferocity of the zombies' attack puts paid to that plan. 
    The four people in the bus -- Dr Chase, ex con-driver Wheeler (Alfie Allen), soldier Gunner (Mekhi Phifer) and Denise (Missi Pyle) -- endure a harrowing journey. 
  Gunner enjoys whacking zombies, and he asks Dr Chase to put her heart into killing them.
  Dr Chase, however, has another mission on her mind, which is to find her family. 
Rachel Nichols gets down and dirty.
   There are a lot of running and skull-bashing scenes, and the film proudly claims that it's using a first-person view to show the narrative. This however, produces only motion sickness in viewers.

1 out of 5 stars
