Critic Reviews for Dead Rising: Watchtower

All Critics (4)

A perfectly fine low-budget zombie movie. It pays homage to the game series it itself is a part of well, and even on its own merits it's a perfectly acceptable two hours.

'Dead Rising: Watchtower' is a mediocre film that misuses all the interesting elements of the original video game saga. [Full Review in Spanish]

I'm usually very rough on video game adaptations, but "Dead Rising" is a surprisingly very good take on the hit video games of the same name.

You've seen it all before, true, but at least it's not boring.

Audience Reviews for Dead Rising: Watchtower

First thing's first if you're not a fan of Dead Rising then you won't enjoy it half as much, There's allot of game to films now days and this one isn't amazing but it's the most loyal to its roots, It has characters from the game, It has OTT crazy weapon combinations from the game, A countdown to a fire bombing like the game, Even a big boss that can take chainsaw shots to the back and still manage to fight you, It doesn't take itself seriously and and is just all about pleasing hardcore fans and it succeeds (Sort Of).

Deliciously bad and campy, I couldn't turn my eyes away from this low-budget, glorious train-wreck of a film! On the brighter side, at least now I know Jesse Metcalfe is still alive; on the darker side, clearly his career isn't.

didn't touch the core of what made the video game interesting. it was a struggle to finish and becomes yet another poor game to film adaptation.
