|I actually went! Title shot.|
Colin follows the experiences of a zombie as he lumbers around a post-apocalyptic UK. A rather interesting take on the zombie genre, since nearly all films have been the opposite: the experiences of the living in the post-apocalyptic world. Zombie aficionados might recognize an attempt at this in 28 Weeks Later where we touch upon a similar concept as the father becomes zombified and is established as the antagonist. Colin on the other hand attempts to set up a young man named Colin as the protagonist of the film as it details his transformation into a shell of his former self.
However, I did take satisfaction in Colin and its refreshing take on the concept of a "zombie". Colin's character is set up almost as an innocent bystander and product of the surroundings he has been thrust into. This leads to some comedic relief as Colin attempts to chase survivors but gives up because they are too fast; and is startled when hearing music from headphones while chewing on the ear of a victim. The viewer is left as an observer as Colin bears witness to the acts of inhumanity around him by both the living and the undead.
If you get a chance, go check this one out. Don't go in expecting the greatest zombie tale ever. But it will leave you satisfied with a new perspective and maybe a little bit of sympathy for our Zombie friends. Cheers!
