Boy scouts customizing weapons to take on hordes of zombies sounds like a great concept. Watching people take on waves of the undead in a manner similar to that of Dead Rising would be great for a fun popcorn flick. Yet, somehow Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse manages to take a should be easy to execute concept and just take a giant diarrhea dump all over it. You would think Scouts Guide would be about killing zombies, taking on the undead rotters, yet for some reason the movie focuses on stereotypical characters as they flop around.
If you’re expecting a Zombieland, where a nerdy socially ackward teenager starts off gunning down zombies, you’re in for a complete and total bore fest. Instead of moving fast into the main plot, the meat of a zombie film, Scouts Guide focuses on the awkward relationship between the characters like an American Pie imitation.
In the end, I would not recommend paying full ticket price at a movie theater. If you really want to see it for yourself, then Showbox it.
Your better off playing Dead Rising.
