The ReZort, a safari park, offers paying guests the opportunity to kill as many zombies as they please following an outbreak.

What is the ReZort?

I really liked The ReZort!  As opposed to some other reviews on the internet I have to say that it lived up to exactly what it proposed it would be.  This was a zombiefied Jurassic Park that had quality characters, great action scenes, and a clever twist towards the end.

The one thing I would ask for is that it could have added an additional half hour to broaden the scope of the story and explore some of the characters back story a bit further.  However, the world this movie built has a ton of potential and I am sure a sequel will not be too far behind.

Show ‘Em Boys

From The Hollywood News:
The ReZort tries really hard, but is let down by a limited budget and a couple of under-developed stock characters. It also suffers a bit from the old adage of biting off more than it can chew. Not content with the zombie safari aspect, or the zombie rights viewpoint, it also adds another layer involving refugees. The short run time makes it near impossible for all strands to be properly explored. It does however, offer us huge possibilities for a potential sequel.

Who’s to say the living won’t be next?

From ComingSoon.net
The ReZort‘s premise is wonderfully hokey and hoary, but again, Barker is such a good director and the package he’s put together here is so professionally made and the characters so engaging, that it’s almost always credible on its own terms. George A. Romero’s movies work so well because he took the time to empathize with the zombies, to give them their key moments where we look for — and often find — enough traces of their lost humanity for us to care about their fates.

The Escape

tl;dr:
The ReZort is Jurassic Park meets 28 Days Later. It lives up to the comparison and created a terrific world with the potential for some awesome sequels.
