Versus (Ryuhei Kitamura, 2000) - 7/10

After reading a book on zombies, Versus provided a gorefest of the living dead. Blended in with gunplay and samurai swordplay, the movie splurged all kinds of blood and guts. Violence so over-the-top, it becomes laughable. Forget how thin and messy the story becomes (about good vs. evil), but be entertained for the film's stylish, choreographed action sequences and main directing. However bland the main character becomes, there are more extravagant or interesting characters that provide the energy and humour of this film. The use of rock/metal/techno as a backdrop is a testament to how much fun you'll experience watching this film.
