Today we’re talking about the 2022 film Zombies 3.
Although following the same themes as the first two, it deviates more in story. The overall plot is utterly ridiculous, but in the best way possible. There are a few inconsistencies with the first one (specifically the ages of the characters) but it’s still a fun story. I particularly like how they used the three groups’ tech together.
I like the third movie in these sorts of series. The characters are developed and sure of themselves. Zed is a proud Zombie trailblazer and even without knowing her origins, Addison is a leader and welcomes everyone. The rest of the cast fit really well together.
There are a lot of nice nods to classic sci-fi and monster movies. The dialogue leans into the cheesy and series nostalgia, which somehow works really well.
Visuals and Music
By far the best filmed of the series, but the special effects aren’t as great as they could be. I liked how much they managed in the first two with little to no budget, but with a massive budget it was a little disapointing.
The music was great, but still not extremely distinctive. I doubt I’ll hear the soundtrack and know right away what it’s from.
This is a an angst-free and fun movie. It has all the elements that made the first two fun and everyone in the family enjoyed it.
My favourite of the three, but mostly for the return to an awesome world. It was fun and had some great songs.
Final Score: 4 Stars out of 5
