Scouts Guide to Apocalypse Review

Description: The three schools are boring, but the Boy Scouts have been around for years when they suddenly find themselves in a whirlwind of very strange events: their hometown is overrun by zombies. Initially hoping for help from adults, the teenagers soon realize that those adults are gone. And now the survival of the town, and maybe the whole world, depends only on them. After accepting a sexy barmaid in the company and following the motto of the scouts - "Be ready!", the three friends enter the fight.

This is such a good mix between a teen movie that only thinks about boobs and a darkly humorous horror comedy. So if you already have an image of this story in your head, you are not mistaken, everything is quite easy. However, I think you'll find this horror guide a treat. Nothing here is taken seriously and the main goal of the movie is just to have a good time. Certainly not all attempts at humor will make you cry on the floor and many of the twists and turns of the story will be predictable, but make no mistake, you will find some really "crazy" funny scenes here.

This is definitely not an A-level movie, as soon as you start you realize that they are not going to try to convey everything very realistically or give an Oscar-worthy performance. But at the same time, the special effects, make-up, blood effects are qualitatively constructed and it feels like everyone who worked on this project really tried. And the most important thing is that the movie does not waste your time, and when you finish it very quickly, the story itself feels fast, and once the action starts, it doesn't seem to stop until the end.

Realistically, I wouldn't call the film very strong, it's quite light and a large part of it will quickly spread out of your "brain". Some places felt a little tight when they shouldn't and the characters themselves can feel a little suffocating at times. I can't say that everything was executed as well as it could have been, but you will have a fun evening.

Overall - 8/10

  • Actually, at the beginning I thought it would be completely crazy, but the further it goes, the more fun it gets. Maybe I wouldn't give 8, many places have already been seen, but 6-7 is worth it...

    • We were also quite surprised by the entire construction of the film. As I said in the review, it feels like the developers really wanted to make something fun. ­čÖé
