Overview

In an apocalyptic future where the human race is poised on the brink of extinction and science has created the ultimate abomination of nature, a lone hunter gatherer realizes the essence of his being while fighting to survive. The year is 2015: the world's petroleum reserves have been depleted due to the oil wars, and the planet has fallen into a hopeless cycle of death and destruction. In an effort to remove the less desirable components of the human population, a powerful organization known only as The Corporation set into motion a heinous depopulation program. But The Corporation didn't expect their scientists to revolt, and in a desperate attempt to save the human race the disgruntled intellects created a drug that reverts normal humans into primitive, instinct-driven beasts known as Biosyns. Biosyns are virtually blind, relying almost entirely on scent and sound to stalk their prey. Max is a young man who lives by himself in the wilderness. Most of his days are spent eliminating as many Biosyns as possible, but lately he's been noticing something strange among the creature's ranks; not only are they beginning to communicate, but they're starting to travel in groups and their vision seems to be returning as well. The Corporations views Max's existence as a threat, and no they've dispatched a squad of genetically engineered soldiers known as Trackers to dispatch with him. But as the chief tracker watches Max battle a raging horde of Biosynths, he begins to reevaluate his original mission. Perhaps if Max and the Tracker can travel far enough south they will be able to find a place of refuge. According to travelers Zac and Rachel, there's s powerful resistance movement down south. Now, as this unlikely group struggles to find a way out of the wasteland, they stumble right into the middle of a violent war between the raging Biosyns and the Corporation's increasingly strained army.

This movie had a cool cover and the plot line seemed to have some original value but fell short, more like fell flat on its face. From the get go it has poor cinematography, bad acting, lame zombies and an even worse protagonist. I could not sit past the point in which the bearded fella fought a zombie and drew his ACE Hardware hatchets in the cheesiest fashion. The film is an Indy one, but to the point that any puberty stricken teen could of put together with some friends. Oh yeah if the first few min of the film don¿t have you on your knees begging it to stop, the bike that the main character rides will. Not even worth a rent.

Ok. So we've all seen more than one zombie movie. Actually, there are really only about three or four you NEED to see. This film knows that, and has a good time with it. Tounge in cheek from the get-go, "The Vanguard" is a great play on the genre. From the crazy monochrome scenes, to the great soundtrack, and yes the BIKE, this movie had me from the beginning. Not top-notch by any rate, it is never the less a fun ride.
