Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
I was really disappointed by this. A clever premise and huge potential for genre-spoofing comedy were wasted by a pretty stupid screenplay, which I hear was dumbed-down from the original novel. The film was logically inconsistent and full of plot holes (which I'll describe with spoilers in Movie of the Month), so distracting that I was thoroughly turned off by the film before it even reached the halfway point. It also suffered from a lack of imagination; in a world catastrophically transformed, little seems to concern these characters except the events of the plot. What barely kept the film out of "it sucked" range were a funny supporting performance by zombie Rob Corddry and a tough, feisty heroine who improves on the usual blank voids lacking personality who usually feature in supernatural YA films.
Erik Bates: “It was ok.”
It's your classic tale of re-animated boy falls in love with daughter of anti-zombie militant warlord. Rob Corddry was, to me, the funniest part of the entire film. Gaping plot holes aside, it was a cute film. Good to watch if you can't find anything else at the Redbox.
