Anyone seen this one? Crazies 2010
Yeah, it's a remake of Romero's 1973 movie, and this one isn't any better.
The plot has promise, and the movie features Timothy Olyphant who was in Live Free or Die Hard, Hitman and the TV series Justified.
Here come the spoilers:
So, pretty early on it's determined that a large government plane went down and crash landed in a river/bayou that feeds this town's water supply. The result is some man made chemical/pathogen that turns people into mindless killing machines, along with creating some sort of flesh eating condition. What the hell that has to do with the mind leeching is beyond me, but it makes the bad guys easy to identify.
The small town becomes a wasteland of mindless killers and soon the military moves in and starts rounding up people who are about to turn into beasts and who are supposedly "not infected".
So, small town sheriff ( Olyphant ) his deputy, sheriff's hot wife and some teenager who works for the wife are hell bent to get out of this town, together, and not succumb to the disease or be stopped by the oppressive military regime.
The movie is okay, but I was really disappointed in that for a small town in the middle of the country ( farming community, etc. ) there are no weapons, there are no dogs. The sheriff has a back up 6" Smith revolver and the deputy has a mini Glock, along with a Remington 870. Hardly what I would expect, especially if ANYONE in the town was a member here.
So yeah, it could have been a lot better. Anyone see it, and what were your thoughts? What would you have changed?
