Dead Rising: Endgame (2016/Sony Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C+ Film: C

A Crackle Production, along with Legendary Digital comes another adaptation of the popular Zombie killing videogame, Dead Rising. While it features decent special effects, the film ends up becoming 'more of the same' for the zombie genre, with not a lot new or groundbreaking ideas that really stand out. Dead Rising: Endgame (2016) stars Jesse Metcalfe, Keegan Connor Tracy, Jessica Harmon, Dennis Haysbert, and Billy Zane.

Chase (Metcaife) battles undead hordes of zombies in a ruined America in a grim future. Having left being old friends and struggling to live a somewhat normal life in this world, Chase finds himself heading to a quarantine zone to expose those responsible for the deadly zombie outbreak. After he discovers a mass annihilation, its life or die as he and a group of survivors hack and slash their way through the undead population.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1, the color correction looks pretty good here, aside from some bad green screen mattes that an untrained eye won't notice. For being on a lower budget, the movie is shot pretty cleanly and feels more like a feature film than a TV movie. The sound mix is an English, lossless 5.1 DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) track that sounds good throughout with a tense score and loud effects when the zombie killing action begins.

Special Features consist of Eight Featurettes and collectible Zombie Fake Tattoos, plus...

- Bringing Zombies to "Life"

- From Game to Screen

- Making the Weapons

- Who is Chase Carter?

- Who is Jill Ekland?

- Who Is Jordan Blair?

- Who is Sandra Lowe?

Not without some cool Zombie kills and effects, this feels like an episode of Fear the Walking Dead in many regards more than it does a fresh take on the genre.
