I Am a Hero ★★★★

The zombie genre has definitively moved towards the eastern half of the globe.

I Am a Hero is a superbly balanced zombie film that simulates iconic genre examples and blends it into a wonderful film with a clear sense of identity.

You'd think there is not much left to explore in this particular niche of the horror genre and you'd be right. But once again, like recently Train to Busan, a, for me at least, culturally different approach and style imbue it with a new vigor that is more than welcome.

Nasty, funny, disgusting, touching and disconcerting, I Am a Hero's 2 hour running time whizz by, sporting the perfect anti-hero and a perfect balance of genre elements.
