Having stumbled upon "Osombie" by sheer luck, I decided to give it ago. We got Abraham Lincoln battling zombies and vampires this year, sowhy not also have a zombie Osama Bin Laden as well? I thought thismovie was going to be a comedy spoof, but it actually turned out to bea serious movie. So what is next this year? Saddam Zomsain? Anyway, themovie "Osombie" starts out with action and adrenaline right from thevery beginning and doesn't let go before the end. This is a zombiemovie that steps out from other regular zombie movie, in terms of thestoryline and the fact that Osama Bin Laden is a zombie.<br><br>I enjoyed the movie, lots of action in it, and the action scenes werewell executed and looks good. But what really worked was the zombiemake-up. Lots of really nice detail here, and lots of great work on themake-up. The zombies looked really cool, and weren't just people withtheir faces painted gray. And the blood and gore effects were cool aswell, lots of heads exploding all over.<br><br>The people cast for the roles were actually doing great jobs with theirgiven roles and characters. The acting was good and believable, comingoff nicely on the screen. People seemed to be enjoying what they werehired to do, and that showed off in their performances.<br><br>Now, there were some bad things about the movie as well, some flaws.For example, when did the American army allow their troopers to bringKatana swords with them into the incursion fields? And also, why didChip have to take off his jacket and shirt all the time? That was justso stupid, and not really how a soldier would act in a situation likethis. And to top it off, then suddenly there is a Katana trainingmontage video with Tomboy in the middle of it all, it came out ofnowhere and it made absolutely no sense. It was so lame.<br><br>But aside from these really stupid annoyances, then "Osombie" wasactually a rather entertaining movie. And if you are a zombieaficionado, like me, then you definitely owe it to yourself to check itout. It is well worth a watch. However, the storyline about Osama BinLaden as a zombie was a bit on the cheesy side though, but the actionand the zombies more than made it up for that silly approach.<br><br>Being a non-American I did find the movie to be somewhat thick onpro-Americanism, waging war on terrorists even when they have come backfrom the grave. But hey, it is a movie, meant for entertaining, notbeing a political broadcasting channel.
