Office Uprising (2018)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) A good story with great potential wasted due to a weak screenplay and lack of star-cast.

 
CONS –
1) A zombie comedy trying to recreate the magic of Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Zombieland (2009) but can’t catch up due to weak screenplay and direction.
2) Except for Karan Soni, the entire cast is disappointing. Brenton Thwaites in the lead makes no sense.

Adam Nusbaum: Desmond, don’t be too sad. We have a killer severance package.
