Synopsis: Set in between the events of the video games Dead Rising 2 and 3, report Chase Carter finds himself trapped a walled-in quarantine area when a zombie outbreak happens.
The Good: Rob Riggle is fucking inspired as Frank West. Sure he's Rob Riggle playing every other Rob Riggle character, but he's a damn good Frank. The movie is full of references to the video games. It was fun seeing all of the ridiculous homemade weaponry. I liked the new protagonist, Chase. He seems to fit into the Dead Rising mythos nicely.
The Bad: The acting in this movie isn't great. It's B at best. The plot has been done over and over.
Final Thoughts: Ultimately this movie is a nice B zombie flick. However, if you're a fan of the Dead Rising video games you'll get quite a few laughs and nods out of the setting specific elements. You can watch the movie and it's sequel (which includes Dead Rising 2's Chuck Greene) on Crackle.
