DVD Review: The Dead 2: India (2013)

From writing/directing duo Howard & Jonathan Ford comes the sequel to 2010’s The Dead. Whilst the original was set in Africa we switch continents for this film which has a similar story but set (and shot) in India this time. Released on DVD in the UK by Altitude.

The film stars Joseph Millson, Meenu Mishra and Anand Krishna Goyal.

The-Dead-2-India-1

An American engineer (Millson) teams up with a surviving orphan street kid (Goyal) to trek 300 miles across stunning but deadly rural Indian landscapes to the now infested slums of Mumbai to try and save his pregnant girlfriend (Mishra).

This film really makes use of the sparse and beautiful landscapes available in India and I found it was beautifully shot with some great sweeping shots.However this is perhaps more successful as a straight thriller than a genre film although there are a few fun kills and escapes. There are stellar performances from the main cast. All in all a good effort from the Ford brothers.

Extras
The only included extra is the Trailer; a slightly disappointing offering.

3/5
