Overall: First of all…I don’t want to spoil anything but can I just point out how crazy different the zombies are in this film?! WOW. I really liked this film. Though I think there were some characters that I felt were rather unlikeable (which always makes me hate films altogether), it had a strong plot and I liked all the action sequences. I’m also a puzzle person, so I think I’ve always liked that aspect of this film – always trying to figure out what happens next, what I would do in those scenarios, what certain things symbolize or could mean in the next film, etc. It’s captivating right from the start and there’s always this sense of urgency throughout the film that keeps you really clinging to the edge of the seat.
