Decent but with minor issues

Typical zombie story. Obviously the budget is limited so the whole movies was filmed in one city block to cut down on expenses. Decent acting but some details were missed. The boy stayed in that building for so long. And even though he had tainted short hair. And presumably ni beard hair. His look didn't change one bit. Kind of an obvious point... Other things like the the fact that zombies hear noise in an apartment several levels up from down in the street. And somehow manage to identify exactly where the noise is coming from. Even for a normal human being. That's extremely difficult. I could go on for a long time with these remarks but it's ok for a Netflix movie. Worth watching if you're a zombie film enthusiast

#Imaginative.

I rather enjoyed #Alive, it didn't feel like the average zombie movie. There seemed to be some parallels between the imagined threat here, and the very real threat, Coronavirus. There's a great scene where our man looks outside fearfully, and then looks at his food rations, something many people have done in 2020.

It's very nicely acted, nicely shot, it feels very fresh and current. The moments of horror were very nicely done, and never became too silly. Some nice twists, it's never predictable.

It has a real sense of doom, and terror about it, the way things gradually collapse, that said the action begins quickly, they don't hang around.

It's good, 7/10.

Nothing special.

#Alive is a South Korean film by first time director Il Cho. Going into this film I expected an absolute mess, all I had seen was the horrible title. But I was pleasantly surprised with a pretty interesting take on zombie movies. For the most part.

Technically I didn't think this film was anything special. No element of filmmaking was exceptional, and no element was awful. Granted there were some awful moments, like the editing when people are turning into zombies is laughable. And the cinematography during action scenes was also just dreadful. For the most part though the technical aspects were consistently, fine.

The zombies were very inconsistent. If they are so sensitive to noise why are characters able to talk at all, sometimes when they speak it cuts to hordes of zombies charging in the direction of the sound and this is just forgotten half of the time. Sometimes the zombies are so strong they are able to climb buildings and other times they can't open a door because a step ladder is in the way. I believe this is because of my next point.

Bad screenplay. All but two points of tension in this film are down to coincidence. The same scare is used many times, Oh will be doing something like, for example, flying his drone then there is a bang at the door, it's a zombie, at the same moment his drone runs out of battery. The chances of this happening are so slim. The fact screenwriters Il Cho and Matt Naylor use this stupid scare so many times makes me think they just didn't care when writing this film. The dialogue is bad and everything feels lazy.

The constant references to pop culture to try and relate to a younger audience really began to annoy me after a while. From the title to the main character Of being a gaming streamer. But the filmmakers don't really know how technology works, holding your phone in the air does not give you more reception. I hate when films waste so much time trying to be hip and down with the kids. By doing this it sacrifices so much time the film could be using to develop characters or create a more compelling narrative.

Overall, #alive is a pretty stupid movie that is just ok the whole way through. Check it out if you like zombie movies.
