If Steven Seagal made a Zombie movie…. REDCON-1
Incredible production values for what is clearly a low budget film, excellent camera work, action directing and editing mark, REDCON-1 is professional, well thought out film. It is a product of properly trained technicians and creatives, and great production. It is also precisely targeted at those who love an action or zombie film and will find a big audience.
REDCON-1 opens with a snappy montage of found footage shots.
Opening with a snappy montage of found footage shots, the scene is set for a post-apocalyptic world, where we’ve had the terrorism, political upheaval and wars, and now the name of the game is… Survival from a Zombie virus which threatens the UK, and presumably everywhere else. Cut to a military base where a commander orders, what we assume is a crack squad of special ops soldiers, to go into the quarantine zone. Why? The scientist who may’ve unwittingly created the virus to start with, and therefore maybe the clue to a cure, is reported to be at one of four possible locations… You guessed it, inside the zone.
Some truly visceral pop zombie scenes oozing blood, gore, violence...
With some truly visceral pop zombie scenes oozing blood, gore, violence, and good action sequences, this is a film that follows a well-trodden path of ‘going into dangerous territory to rescue someone’. Inevitably it will get compared to, ‘World War Z’, ‘Escape to New York’, and any commando film, like the recent ‘Expendables’ series, or the more distantly remembered Steven Segal films, and this is a compliment as the production values stand up well given, REDCON-1’s far smaller budget.
Chee Keong Cheung’s REDCON-1 is a great action zombie movie, and so it will be great to see what he comes up with next.
REDCON-1 is released on Blu-Ray & DVD 25th February 2019.
