1. It has zombies!
2. Action, action and more action! One thing that surprised me the most was Mäkilaakso’s abilities as an action director. In my mind War of the Dead is not so much a zombie movie but a full blown action flick. The kind of action flick I have been craving to see from a Finnish film maker for ages.
3. It’s a love song to 80′s and 90′s action movies and their stars. And what’s better than action movies from those days? Nothing, I tell you!
Whilst you’re at it, take a look at this awesome clip from the movie….
