    Exciting, truly harrowing and smartly directed apocalyptic thriller from Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball"). It's the scariest zombie movie in many years. show more

    Essentially, it boils down to familiar fare: a well-paced, entertaining, conventional action thriller where a reluctant hero saves the day. show more

    \"Really?\" I found myself repeating that quite often through the show. As a straight up action movie, I guess it was \"OK\" but I wouldn\'t call it great. If you apply any rational thought to the movie, it\'s plot is pretty weak, even for a zombie movie.
