3 stars- Perfectly serviceable/enjoyable…
Not sure what I can say about this one that you haven't heard before. Definitely the best zombie film of the last decade and probably one the top 5 ever made. The claustrophobic setting, the linear story (both figuratively and literally), the characters that are instantly recognizable as "types" but nonetheless you come to feel deeply for (and in one case, despise), the commentary on the human nature and spirit in a disaster; all add up to make this a nerve wracking but, ultimately, moving film.
Has a lovely set up t the start that makes you wonder what is going on. Then it goes back and tells you. It plays out very well until maybe the last 15 minutes and then some really questionable (and physically unbelievable) choices get made and a glaring plot point is left unresolved so you have a hard time seeing how it dovetails into the opening scenes. Hard to rate this one because I did enjoy the performances and the dialogue but it left me scratching my head more than entertained.
