Please Mr. Rodriguez , No more Zombies
20 May 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I don't know whats wrong with Rodriguez. He made an absolute gem in Sin City. But then he comes up with a horrible and disgusting mess in Planet Terror. Why is he so attracted to zombies??? It was seen even in From Dusk Till Dawn, where the movie started brilliantly (with his pal Tarantino doing a good job as a psychotic killer)and then drifted to the Rodriguez favorite zombie theme.

Planet Terror has all the ingredients that can disgust anyone - blood spilling, arms getting pulled out, stabbing in the eye ,etc,etc. I was bored within 5 minutes since the flick started with the stupid "ball " scene ruining it the most for me. Wonder why Tarantino allowed himself to be associated with this movie?? His segment Death Proof was pretty decent.

Wonder how this movie is so highly rated on IMDb. The director must have some real good hackers in his team. There is no other way for it to be rated 7.5+. Deserves no more than 2 stars out of 100.
