*Oh I have been waiting for this ever since that trailer!
*The cast is a great selection.
*The story looks intense and almost like 28 Days Later so it shall sate my thirst hopefully until they get their heads out of their asses and make the third part.
*I haven't seen or heard of any films from Colm McCarthy, but he has worked on several TV shows I am familiar with.
*As for Mike Carey who wrote the book I haven't heard of any of his work.
*It's definitely one heck of a thrill ride.
*The story is familiar, but it has it's own greatness to it.
*The cast is brilliant and the characters get you invested.
*At times it's brutal in a useful way.
*There were some great moments and ideas throughout.
*I liked that it was unpredictable most of the time.
*The poor poor animals.
There is a strong sense of The Last of Us and 28 Weeks Later with it's own tweaks. It's an excellent infected movie. The characters are great and the acting makes them even better. The story is intense and a thrill from beginning to end. I would say it stands out quite differently than other movies in the genre. It's definitely worth the watch.
