All that, and the "High Speed" guy, working SWAT with a [i]revolver??[/i] At least edit your six-shooter out of the trailer, so people who know what guns are don't say "Oh, fergetaboutit" when they see a guy fighting hundreds of zombies with a revolver. Yeah, sure-love to reload that baby on the fly, with the undead after me![:D] Juggernaut

[mock horror] You mean you're supposed to unfold those things?! [/mock horror] That mistake always makes me chuckle. Damnit, why can't all movies with guns be like Heat?

I liked the movie. Parts of it were unrealistic, but overall pretty tense and exciting. The team is just private security guards, so I can imagine these rent-a-cops pulling stupid stunts. I don't think a revolver is an awful choice as a backup gun. A .357 Magnum has certain advantages over a 1911.

If you like cool German subguns and some pretty gross-out gore you'll dig this movie.

Zombies are a part of the movie plot I'm perfectly willing to suspend my belief about. Underground multi-billion dollar corporation? Also part of the plot. Undead Dobermans? Part of the movie. Virus that turns you into a Zombie? Part of the plot. However, so-called "tactical professionals" not knowing how to use their own weapons properly is just a bunch of mistakes on the part of the director-C'mon, we're not supposed to expect that in this fantasy world, that not only do zombies exist, but that firing a G36K from the hip with the stock folded is the right and most effective way for a highly trained operative to use it, are we? I doubt it... There's plot devices, and then there's mistakes. The poor weapons handling falls under the mistake category. Juggernaut
