I always enjoy Dolph in movies well most of the time anyway and since i really liked the fun action packed Battle Of The Damned where Dolph battled zombies in that movie too i thought i will get ‘Dead Trigger and hopefully like it too!!!

Well first thing first like i said i like Dolph and he makes a good rugged tough B-movie action hero but he was much better in the very cool Battle of the Damned but although this film is very ultra low-budget it still had some cool fun moments and it’s just cool seeing Dolph killing zombies first place. The extremely low-budget is evident throughout the movie as they film in like warehouses and everything is just plain & no real apocalyptic sets or anything exciting to look at in the background & the zombie make up is cheap looking but it’s a shoot ’em up cheap flick so nothing really terrible but nothing great either!!!

Print/Audio Quality

The print is presented in 1080p with a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. The print looks very good throughout without any apparent issues. Colors are vibrant and carry pop which brings out the fine details. The detailed scenes stand out very well. Blacks are deep. I found the print to be crystal clear with no artifacts or print damage. The darker scenes of the film looks great with the appropriate lighting making this science fiction film standout. Even the documentary look and feel at the beginning had a nice feel to it showing some excellent details which I did not expect. I was rather impressed with this print as its close to demo quality material that you will want to show off to your friends this holiday season.
Print Quality: 8/10

The audio is presented in DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix mix. This is a very immersive soundtrack during the action sequences. This is a film where there are a lot of action and chase sequences. Those looking for an audio mix that will take advantage of your equipment, this is the film for you. This is a very well done audio presentation that has dynamic range with the sound effects and a lot of panning from speaker to speaker. Dialogue is clean and crisp through the center channel.

The Final Word

I love Lundgren since the 80’s when I first saw him in Rocky IV. The movie for the most part was entertaining good quality low budget. If you are a fan of zombies and Dolf, you will not be disappointed.
