      It's been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world's population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable. Within the few surviving cities, the Re-Ans have been segregated into "zones" and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak.

There's nothing wrong with B movies. Paul Verhoeven's 1999 classic Starship Troopers was one of the best B movies ever made, and Re- Kill is the zombie tribute to the original. Instead of bugs, you've got zombies, but the story stays close to the Starship Troopers script. They've even got the movie formatted like someone is watching a TV show. The commercials are great fun.

Let's not get carried away. This movie isn't that good. Unlike all the fully fleshed out characters in Troopers, the makers of this film didn't give us anyone to care about. As a result, it's hard to root for anyone. The wholes in the plot are big enough to drop a giant beetle through. (Starship Trooper reference). The authorities keep sending the same squad out to fight hordes of zombies. They never have a line of retreat, never have any reinforcements, backup or air support. The zombie battles are all conveniently in the dark, which probably saved a ton on makeup. These aren't your ambling zombies from a George Romero classic. These zombies must have all been NFL linebackers the way they contain, tackle then devour the poor soldiers. The soldiers have no protection on their neck, or arms. The logic is so porous there will be a puddle under your TV halfway through the flick.

So is it terrible? No. If you like zombie films, it's worth renting. But you won't pause it to go to the bathroom. You'll let it run, knowing you won't miss anything important. It's fun in many parts, but only for those of us who have to watch all zombie films.
