    fucking brutal.

    every performer brings their a game. the set design is incredible. it builds tension so subtly that i didn’t even realize how tense i was until the film ended. 

    that torch scene??? and chris evans’s speech at the end?? phenomenal.

    "when you start something, you should finish it no matter what."

    there are so many great dynamics between characters throughout this film. over the course of the runtime, i couldn't help but grow attached and feel invested in their fates. while you can’t have an excessive amount of backstory for each individual character when there’s so many of them, all of them feel fully realized.

    the zombies and all of the other effects look great, but there are some inconsistencies…
