REMAKES, remakes, destroy all remakes! Well, some of them anyway. Day of the Dead: Bloodline is in fact the second attempt at trying to remake George A. Romero’s classic film, with audiences having to already suffer through the 2008 version starring Men Suvari and Ving Rhames. How did the 2018 version fair?
Here are our PRO (yes, just the one) and CONs:
No artistic style, with the film lacking of any direction throughout; it’s so bland, you wouldn’t even care to check up the director’s name afterwards. It’s Hector Hernandez Vicens by the way. We’ll save you the time.
While the story here closely resembles the original, it misses out any subtlety and substance. Instead, we get a flat, unimaginative script with bland and forgettable characters. Boring characters means bored actors, and it shines through. Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson never gave the director a chance.
Worse than the 2008 version:
Yup, somehow, they have managed to do it. At least the 2008 version gave us Ving Rhames’ attempt at phoning it in. Here, they gave us nothing.
They’ll probably won’t remake it again. Hopefully.
