The Horde – Review!


When detective Mathias Rivoallan is found murdered by the gang led by the Nigerian Markudi (Eriq Ebouaney), detectives Jimenez (Aurélien Recoing), Aurore (Claude Perron), Ouessem (Jean-Pierre Martins) and Tony (Antoine Oppenheim) decide to revenge the death of his friend.

The vigilantes plot bloodshed, executing Markudi, his brother Bola (Doudou Masta) and the other gangsters in the abandoned building where they are gathered.

Then all hell broke loose!!! A battle between cops, gangsters and free running zombies began!!

I won’t tell you the whole story but basically that’s the backbone of the movie but what makes this a wonderful horror film is the acting of everyone including the zombies!

The action is FAST and relentless and you can see the “zombies” get really really hurt!!

The stunt men in the zombies really needs to “suffer” lot’s of brutal punching, kicking, slashing and getting hit by lot’s of types of guns from pistol hand gun, shotgun, machine gun to full fledge chain gun!!!

The fighting in this movie really FIGHTS and you can almost feel the bone crushing action in every possible way against the zombies haha!!

This is the types of actions I dreamt about in my own mind about what zombie movies should have, REAL fighting not some kick and bang with brains out but real fight when possible.

Unfortunately there are some plot holes in the movie that I don’t think is logical with their decisions, but to make this movie a more action packed movie…the director tried to use the most illogical plot in the movie to create spectacular horror action movie.

Not going to spoil it for you but when you watched it you will KNOW what I’m talking about, maybe if the director is making a television series they won’t choose this plot but give MORE of the amazing casts a chance to survive this end of the world zombie scenario!!

Yes, as expected of all zombie movies, there will be blood…lot’s of it!

I will grade this movie A minus with illogical plot but fantastic acting & special effects!
