The Unrated Director's Cut has a scene missing from the UK cinema release. Just before Cholo visits Kauffman for the final time he intervenes in a disturbance at Kauffman's neighbor's' house where we see that a man has hanged himself and his son tries to cut him down only to be bitten in the neck when his father reanimates as a zombie. Cholo destroys the zombie by bashing its head in while the distraught widow shrieks in the background. See more »
Simon Baker leads in this film as a mercenary who wants to head up North. Maybe the undead do not like the cold. He find himself trapped between various warring factions, including a ruthless CEO (Dennis Hopper) who offers safety to the wealthy while allowing the unwashed masses to fend for themselves, a fellow mercenary (John Leguizamo) who will sacrifice anyone to advance his own agenda, and hordes of zombies who are starting to take steps up the evolutionary ladder. They actually used a gun in this film. First time I've seen a zombie do more than eat. They even went in the water. Apes don't do that! Lots of blood, but there was less action than I've seen and more talking.
I love John Leguizamo, and that made it worth my time. Seeing Asia Argento (xXx) wasn't bad either.
