Charles Leary, a Ph.D. candidate in Cinema Studies at New York University, must've been in a bad mood when he saw it:
The worst film I saw at the festival was the ridiculous SARS War (Taweewat Wanta, 2004), the premise of which sounded very promising: a zombie movie within the context of SARS. However, there is nothing about SARS in the film, and the zombies are instead miscellaneous annoying punks attacking the sexually-immature martial-arts hero.
Leary goes on to report that Taweewat was in attendance at the screening and "announced his next project would depict a giant sperm wreaking havoc in Bangkok.
While I hesitate to dismiss such trash film projects, the excessive tongue-in-cheek attitude of SARS War, with characters constantly making generic remarks to the camera, was a bit too much.
Too much for overly serious film scholars like Leary perhaps, but perfect for regular filmgoers looking for a little fun.
