      Justin T If you realise that this is a bad movie then you can sit back and laugh at it. This is not as good as the rest of the movies in this series but it still is a little funny and also a little violent. The story is dire and has none of the charm of the predecessors; it is unoriginal but through its faults comes fun and a dude with mini-guns for arms. There is lots of zombie action and funny moments. Good to turn your brain off with. Cheap and cheerful zombie action! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review R P Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis is just…so bad. Not so bad, it's a good kind of way. Not the cheese that we like. No, just bad. What were they thinking with this movie? Oh I know. It was a cash grab. Though I can't see it making much money. If you can't tell, I'm kind of upset about what this movie did to the franchise. Sigh. (https://foreverfinalgirl.com/return-living-dead-necropolis/) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/14/21 Full Review Audience Member "Any sudden movement makes them angry. And trust me, you don't want to make them angry." Peter Coyote ("Out of the Blue") travels to the Ukraine in order to pick up a half dozen drums of 2-4-5 Trixon from the Odessa Mafia. Upon returning to the US, he does re-animation experiments, sometimes bringing his work home where he is raising his teen niece and nephew. Of course, playing God goes awry, and the teens must team up with a rag-tag group of friends in order to save one another as they ridiculously break-and-enter a high-security medical research facility only after travelling the sewer system on dirt bikes. While the story does connect to the preceding entry in the series and a few bit characters were entertaining, it's much too sleek-looking with weak effects almost to the point of made-for-TV quality. The soundtrack is very early-2000s mallcore/cybermetal, featuring, among others, Powerman 5000, Firewerk, and Godsmack. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Bottom of the barrel crap. Nothing was great here. It had this crappy made for tv look. The acting sucked, the characters were overly cookie cutter, the plot point of a kids parents being turned into bio weapons looked like a rip off of Resident Evil Apocalypse which was already not great to begin with. Just avoid this one. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the worst zombie movie I have ever watched. Take a pussified main character, add the inability for him and any of the other characters to reach obvious conclusions regarding each contact with the zombies, mix in horrible acting and cheesy fight scenes and you will have the recipe used to make this collosal waste of the audience's time. If I could give it a zero or even a -score, I would but, a single star is as low as the rating system allows. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member While the premise of this was decent, Necropolis was the bottom of the Trioxin 5 barrel. The way to kill zombies has changed, there is no logic, and since when do zombies hold regular conversations and even taunt people? Anyway, this is horrible. Could have been quite good, but illogic, and bad acting just ruin everything. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
