The title Mutants was a questionable one to begin with, but as I do like zombie movies when they're good I went ahead anyway. Now I wish I hadn't. For one thing, I was actually waiting all the time for a zombie to show up and to no avail, very like having Fred Flintstone but without the Yabba-Dabba-Doo. If these creatures in Mutants were trying to pass off as zombies they failed abysmally on that front, while not as badly designed as the zombies in a film like Vampegeddon they still look really laughable. And they don't have any menace or intrigue to them whatsoever. And I am angry also at how Mutants wasted its cast. Michael Ironside and Steven Bauer are good actors but, aside from Ironside having the best moment, are saddled with material so poor that they can't do anything with it. Louis Herthum looks as though he's got tears in his eyes, and who can blame him really. The characters they have to play are not only stereotypical, but also get on your nerves and you learn nothing about them, while the dialogue is nothing but cheese and awkwardness. The story has no suspense or any sense of horror, it is very thin and predictable in construction and in the end it feels like there is nothing to it. Mutants even is poorly made, the photography and editing were so choppy and the creature effects as mentioned were laughable. All in all, an awful movie that you actually question the point of it all. 1/10 Bethany Cox
