Half of the movie title sums up what this movie was like...
20 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I do enjoy zombie movies, but unfortunately most of the zombie movies that flood the market are just not worth the effort. I bought "Disaster L.A." from Amazon based on the praise and rating it had received. However, this movie was nowhere near my expectations.

Let's start with the good things; zombies. Yes, anything with zombies is good. And there was a consistent and coherent flow to the movie. The best part of it all would have to be the music, though.

Sadly, the bad parts far outweigh the good parts. First of all, you see maybe ten zombies throughout the entire movie. Seriously? In a zombie outbreak taking place in Los Angeles and you see ten infected individuals, no, no, no... It just reeks of low budget. And while we are on the topic of zombies, then they succumbed to the classic error of low budget zombie movies; putting make-up on the face only and forgetting about the rest of exposed flesh on the zombie actor. It was just so bad. And those contact lenses, seriously?

The story was also flawed. Especially with the fact that the US military bombing Los Angeles without having exhausted all other possible options. It was just stupid.

What I hated the most about "Disaster L.A." was the awful camera-work. The frame was constantly in motion, swaying back and forth, which was a major nuisance. Had they opted to use proper camera rigging, there would have been such a better production value to the movie.

"Disaster L.A." is a zombie movie that came and went without even leaving the smallest of dents, except for a small one on my wallet.
