Mixed Review About Netflix’s “All of Us Are Dead”
However, in the midst of the show’s euphoria, “All of Us Are Dead” receives mixed reviews from movie critics. These reviews showed that despite its achievement to reach the #1 Netflix worldwide ranking in one day, it doesn’t mean that “All of Us Are Dead” is without flaws.
Yoon Chan Young and Jo Yi Hyun Received Praises from Prominent Critic
Firstly, we have review from famous TV critic Caroline Framke from Variety. She stated that the show presents impressive sequences with charismatic young casts, Yoon Chan Young and Jo Yi Hyun. However, the “All of Us Are Dead” episodes truly run longer than necessary. That is especially with its mainstream school labyrinth that is similar to many other movies and series.
“It’s a sprawling cast, and with the addition of several adult factions outside the campus struggling to keep the outbreak under control, episodes are dense and run longer than necessary. But the school plotlines genuinely work, in large part thanks to continued ingenuity with the props and sets and the charismatic young cast, with Yoon Chan-young and Cho Yi-Hyun as notable standouts
Then, the show’s weakness lies beyond the labyrinthine school itself as it tries to view the outbreak from the outside in. Watching yet another military take on zombies, no matter how bone-crunchingly sickening the ones in ‘All of Us Are Dead’ are, just isn’t that interesting after seeing so many other TV shows and movies do the same.”Caroline Famke, Variety.
“All of Us Are Dead”: Repetitive Pattern Followed Impressive Episodes
Then, Pierce Conran from South China Morning Post gave Netflix “All of Us Are Dead” 2/5 stars review. According to the critic, while the starting point was impressive, the rest of the episodes became merely survival drama with a repetitive pattern.
“All of Us Are Dead kicks off with an impressive episode that is filled with energy and, much like the terrific pilot of The Walking Dead, amounts to a confident rendition of familiar zombie tropes. Yet under this slick veneer lies a network of hairline cracks, which are easy to gloss over at first but grow more prominent as the show moves past its thrilling opening salvo.
The first episode flashes by in the blink of an eye. However, the same cannot be said for those that follow, which become mired in a repetitive pattern.”Pierce Conran, South China Morning Post.
Overlong Stories but Effective Survival Horror
Meanwhile, Netflix “All of Us Are Dead” has received 100% Tomatometer and 81% audience score in Rotten Tomatoes. As for IGN scored the series 7/10.
“All of Us Are Dead may not offer up anything new in the realm of zombie carnage other than its cruel and unrelenting nature. However, sometimes that’s enough to pull off some damn effective survival horror.
You’re meant to feel every ounce and inch of these high schoolers’ strain and struggle to incrementally make it out this crucible, and the action sequences and stunts are always dialed up to 11.
The story itself is overlong. Also, some of the outside-of-school arcs never pay off. However, the emotional core at work here creates enough inspiring humanity to make us care, and the thrills themselves rarely let up.”IGN.
