Fido (2007)

I’d heard a lot about this movie from friends of mine who really enjoyed Fido and I can see the appeal to it.  It also may be a frightening harbinger of a terrifying future where yes, there will be a zombie outbreak and yes, some evil corporation will attempt to domesticate our former undead brethren for profit.  I also enjoy that the setting of this premise is in some sort of alternate 1950s-style universe, but that might be because of the insane amounts of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas that I’ve played.

All the actors and actresses hit all the right notes when it comes to representing the respective era/universe this movie takes place in.  Oddly enough, the only problem I had with the movie is that it turned arguably the most exciting, entertaining and hilarious member of its cast – Billy Connolly – into a relatively emotionless husk of a character!  I don’t know if he could have played any of the other parts, but I think it might have been a more interesting movie that way.  Especially since originally, Fido was supposed to be played by Peter Stormare (who opted out after being cast in “Prison Break”).

Anyways, I liked it for what it was, though I don’t think it was anything spectacular.
