Verdict on Bridge of the Doomed
Bridget of the Doomed is a survival horror movie that uses the zombie enemy to create a chaotic world. in this world, we see the battle between the two sides as they believe they have bigger rights, instead of working together.
This ends up going down the path of most zombie movies, where the biggest weakness ends up being human decisions. It offers very little new to the zombie chaos sub-genre of horror, where it can become difficult to remember who the most important character throughout the movie is. Nothing really gets going in this movie and it all ends up being a weaker version of what we have seen before.
Final Thoughts – Bridge of the Doomed is a by-the-book zombie movie, without bringing anything original to the table.
