Cheung shows promise as a shotmaker and stager of blunt-force action. If somebody cares to arm him with a script editor and production grants, we could have a discovery of sorts on our hands.
Some of the gory comedy succeeds but too often the action scenes get lost in a fog of flashbacks and slow-motion spatters.
The plot is the usual hokum.
Despite lashings of bright red gore and the obvious enthusiasm of its gibbering hordes, Redcon-1 is a hard slog. Nearly two hours of grunts vs zombies feels punitive.
It's grim, humourless work, fundamentally misanthropic and intellectually clueless.
The sheer scale of it... is fairly impressive.
With no particular feel for plot, performance or basic technical competence, it's the Scottish Mussel of zombie movies.
Far too sentimental in places (the score doesn't help) and overly hasty in others, Redcon-1 is as messy as its undead protagonists, yet it still has bite, and Cheung is definitely one to watch.
There are gaping holes everywhere, and sequences are played with either thunderous violence or cornball sentiment.
Whereas the plot and setup is simple, it's what lies within that makes this tale equally kickass and full of heart throughout.
