A remake of the George A. Romero movie and I have to admit, it is actually decent but would you remember it in a year’s time?
As a toxin begins to turn the residents of Ogden Marsh into violent psychopaths, sheriff David Dutton tries to make sense of the situation while he, his wife and two other unaffected townspeople band together in a fight for survival.
So is The Crazies something to go crazy about? In a short answer: no but I’m not saying it’s not a good movie. There’s a good story in the movie but it feels rushed and as new things were unravelled, old things were unexplained and tries to push the mindless violence in random places. The acting was okay, it was neither good or bad, it was just very mediocre. The actor who gave his best performance in the movie, I felt, was Timothy Olyphant who played the Sheriff of Ogden Marsh, David Dutton. The characters were well thought-of but there was one or two in the group you didn’t care about much, I also liked how the infected characters knew what they were doing and knew their actions. The direction and special effects were executed well but it’s a shame the timing wasn’t the same, the whole movie felt forced.
I liked it, I thought it was a good horror movie to watch and it’s a nice change to see that the people infected weren’t zombies (even though I love zombie movies) but it lacks something. It just doesn’t have that replay factor and you’d forget it as soon as you finish watching it. The start of it was promising but as time went on, it got boring in places. Other than that, it’s really just another average horror movie.
I liked it but it could have been better. It had the potential to be something great but instead ended up being the same as most horror movies: Predictable, predictable, predictable!
