The Horde review

A dead-on action thriller

Action films are full of soon-to - be-dead saps, so why not go one further and make them zombies?

French directors Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher have done just that, combining man-flick machismo with splattery excess.

It’s rogue cops versus gangsters in a Parisian slum until an onslaught of sprinting stiffs force both sides to work together.

As these inglourious bastards slash and shoot everything that moves, there’s no let up in pace, tension or volume.

Subtlety is admittedly the very first casualty, but when the claret’s flying with such élan, who gives a merde?
