The zombie apocalypse is in full swing, leaving scattered groups of survivors fighting to survive. No characters are safe from turning as they are picked off one by one in the way to the supposedly safe stadium.
The plot is separated into short chapters that are action packed. It also has the perfect amount of backstories for the characters including secrets that come to light. The characters form alliances that are tested as they fight to survive.
While this show has the common zombie theme, it’s all about the characters. Each one has unique experiences and reasons to survive and the actors did an amazing job bringing them to life. I really liked how they showed them broken into separate groups at first as they deal with troubles and loss before coming together. It was definitely a good way to build up to the groups coming together.
I also really liked how they focused on showing other survivors being a major threat along with the zombies. Did I mention the zombies turn really fast and run in this series? There is even an up close and personal clip of a girl dying then changing right before the camera.
Overall, this is one of my favorite zombie shows yet and I’m anxiously waiting a season 2!
Great zombie TV show. Much better than that cheap garbage “The Walking Dead”. It’s tense, doesn’t have dumb emotional episodes like TWD, soundtracks are scary and zombies are more advanced than in TWD. They are fast and they turn much quicker. They remind us zombies from the movie “28 Weeks Later”. Episodes are interesting. Characters are well developed. Acting is good and cinematography is good too. Personally, I think, this is best zombie TV show at this moment. If you’re fan of soap operas like TWD, then I wouldn’t recommend you this TV show.
Like many reviewers before stated – the production is good, the acting too, and it got some really suspenseful moments, but, and this is almost pretty standard these days, the behavior of the people is sometimes too stupid to believe (for example standing in the middle of a road and screaming for help in the middle of nowhere will not help your matter, I take any bet), and last but not least, to cite Lord of the Flies is an overused and boring approach these days, just saying. Anyway, Black Summer is solid and sometimes even good and beats easy everything TWD and FTWD delivered over the past few years/seasons. If you (still) like to watch zombies (like I do), Black Summer will be a really pleasant surprise and experience.
Some the greatest cinematography, acting and editing ever to bad they forgot to hire a writing and directing team
Everything looks great, shots are long easy to follow and give the viewer a fantastic idea of the local environment, your rarely left confused as to which room or building you are in or where each character is. The stunt co-ordination for action scenes is top notch, no obvious extras randomly flailing to look busy, no shaky cam or crossing the 180 degree line to confuse everyone.
Where it falls short is the writing, the world building and character actions especially. The world makes little sense, there seems to be way more healthy humans than zombies, fully stocked grocery stores, weeks or months into an apocalypse, complete with electric motion sensor doors. Wounds are super inconsistent one guy might bleed out from a bullet hitting an artery in his leg, as you would expect, while another does a week long hike, survives a fist fight, fleeing from zombies etc.. with an untreated bullet wound in his gut and suffers only a slight cough.
Characters are mind numbingly stupid, constantly dropping or leaving behind weapons and supplies for no reason. Leaving lights on, windows and doors open and unlocked, sitting around awkwardly staring at each other, when they could be securing the building, sleeping or packing supplies. We see them score consecutive headshots on humans at decent ranges, but seem to always aim at the zombies torsos.
Then theirs the dialogues and boy they might be the worst ive ever seen, generally characters will spend minutes just sitting and staring at each other, and i don’t mean we cut to a few minutes later, no, we are subjected watching them do nothing for minutes at a time. In fact, the entirety of episode 7 is just silently following characters around, watching them sleep, have dinner and talk absolute nonsense.
90% of their issues would have been solved if they just communicated, but then the lazy ass writers wouldn’t be able to crowbar in the drama of people turning on each other arbitrarily.
This feels like alot of very skilled people from the more technical side of filmmaking got together and made a movie, utterly ignoring the importance of story and characters. If this was a game i would call it a tech demo. Something that will look good on the cameramans resume, but hardly a finished show.
