Osombie (2012)

In the bid to take down Osama bin Laden, the military busts into his compound (which looks just like the inside of a storage facility). Suddenly the doors to the storage units open and out stumble zombies.  Our armed forces commence fighting and locate Osama in a room at the end of the corridor.  Right before he's shot, he injects himself with an experimental serum and all is well because he's dead. Oh wait, no it isn't. Because as the helicopter is flying his body over the ocean, he comes back to undead life and starts trying to chomp on our heroes. Oh no!

Meanwhile in the desert, the worst special forces unit ever patrols the desert, fights zombies, and helps a stupid girl find her freedom fighter brother, whose none too bright either.  The elite fighting squad are gradually whittled down to just a few people since they don't notice zombies in the wide open landscape, often miss their targets, let zombies get close enough to surround and bite them, and don't notice tons of wires lying on the ground as part of booby traps. You name it, they're incompetent at it.  And these are our peacekeepers?!

Get ready for a soldier who takes off his shirt whenever he fights, a soldier who only tells old lame jokes you heard as a kid, and the freedom fighter brother who believes in conspiracy theories and thinks Osama is still alive.... well to be fair, he's undead so he's still moving about but you won't see him that much.  It's mostly random undead until the end. The kills and blood are cgi.  Ridiculous premise, kind of fun but laughable.
