Film 94: The Vanguard

Matthew Hope's 2008 zombie feature has its heart in the right place with all sorts of socio-political ideas in the mix that could have made it a terrific film.

But none of these ideas are actually explored - or even explained - in the vague script so it ends up as 90 minutes of people we neither know nor care about running around in a wood.

I'm sure Hope knew what was going on and had his characters and story all worked out but he completely fails to convey, well, pretty much anything at all. Dull and disappointing.
