Review by: Jason James
I was very excited to see this movie only because I keep hearing about what a great zombie movie it was. After having watched the movie it has less to do with zombies and more to do with human reaction. Unfortunately it didn't work for me. Some of the coolest shots in the movie is an empty London. These shots were done early in the morning before traffic picked up and people were out an about. These shots were amazing. As I said, zombies played a small role in this movie with only a few encounters. I am not disagreeing with the human element of the film as they are unfortunately more accurate than we care to admit. My recommendation for this film is to rent it or borrow it as I am not sure that you will care to ever watch it again.
