The not-too-distant future: The war against the zombies has been fought and won. Writer Eduardo Fonseca (Manuel Eduardo Ramirez) has never served but followed the goings-on from the living room of his inner city home. But to sort of still pay his respect to those who defended his freedom ... heck his life, he has teamed up with the last three survivors (Dominique Marsell, Kyle Gordon, Alec Gearhart) to listen to their account of the battle of Gory Ridge and revisit the old battlegrounds.

Now the battle of Gory Ridge was no big battle, nothing that will long be remembered in history books, rather a strategic operation put into motion to make the superiors look better - so a battallion of six soldiers (the three above plus Travis O'Leary, Dane O'Leary, Will Le Fevre) were sent into a battle as reinforcement, even though their numbers already suggested there was little they could achieve - in other words, they were cannonfodder. Plus they had to march for four sleepless days to get to their destination, which seriously played into their readiness of course. So when the zombies finally attacked, our heroes were already as good as fucked.

Accompanying them to their old battlegrounds, Fonseca gets a hint of the horrors of war, the constant fear for one's life, the horror of seeing dead bodies, of seeing your best friends being eaten alive, and the had decisions you have to make on the battlefield - and it explains why the three survivors of the battle have come back as emotional wrecks ...

 

Even though Ridge War Z is a zombiefilm on paper, it's less about zombies and more of a war movie, but not one celebrating war's heroes or wanting to make an anti-war statement but rather a (very realistic) depiction of the horrors of war, actually done with minimal action or effects work (apart from the finale) and more through little stories by the wayside, pieces of dialogue, simple gestures by the soldiers and the like. And despite being about a (very fictional) war against zombies, this movie here feels truer than most cinematic depictions of war, and while it seems at first a little odd to dedicate a zombie movie to those who have served in the forces, in the end it seems a very fitting dedication.

Recommended.
