The allegory is the senselessness of the zombies in this story (having read the book). A tradition that goes back to "The Plague" by Camus.
Not a bad flick at all. Relentless action with no cheese.
This flick played like an xbox game with different scenes setting different challenges for Bradser, getting to the plane on bikes while it re-fuels and making his way to the lab with the vials of diseases without getting bitten. I'm not sure Brad's character was a former UN soldier as is mentioned above but his trademark self conscious acting is in full swing here, only a 2* movie for me
One of the best action films I've seen in a long time...Gets the heart rate up.
Very surprised to see what a high star rating you gave this one. Hollywood chickens out again. I agree with Corrigan, 2 star, 2.5 max.
great action movie right from the start.edge of your sit stuff.
Cannot believe so many people like this. I thought it was woefully childish at times, it doesn't properly start for me, its just jumps into an all out pandemic out of nowhere. The only clever pieces of storyline (the wall of Isreal was being built because of a prediction of this outbreak etc.) was taken from the book. Pitts wife plays the same same character she played in Gangster Squad. And I agree with Corrigan 100%, at times its like a XBox game especially the scenes in Korea... Wait till the DVD, or just rend 28 Days Later...
http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2013/07/201371183655144583.html There is plenty of allegory in this movie. It's just not what you would typically expect in a zombie movie.
Hollywood pap, suckers.
Hollywood pap, suckers.
I didnt mean to say it twice (ffs)!? webadmins please delete!
This one was pretty bad in my opinion.
I watched this not expecting a great deal or to be really in to it, but I am pleased to say I was very wrong, really liked this movie, I have always loved the idea of zombie movies but some are ridiculous this had a background, a history, well worth a watch.
