Goofs

Everyone seems to be able to make and receive calls with ease. In reality, a national emergency with chaos on that level would surely cause the national cellphone network to overload, and that's ignoring the many cellphone masts that would be abandoned by technicians or overrun by zombie attacks.

Good action film but...
24 November 2019 | by hailandkill-43299See all my reviews

Is this really a zombie film? I am not a genre expert so I am wondering whether this is truly a zombie film: the hordes have never been buried. Also, it seems that infection comes as a result of an airborne virus and not through contact.

The acting is fine. I also like the theme of greedy capitalist industrialist not caring for society.

Finally, to the comments: the schoolgirl but I think she is not a cheerleader. She is dressed in her school uniform because this is field trip.
