I saw this yesterday and thought it was better than the original. I have read some very negative reviews of this film and wondered what movie they saw or how they could call themselves reviewers or maybe they just don't like horror movies. Hell, it's all just opinion, so maybe I should become a reviewer. This movie had it all. Gore, intensity, a good pace and great visual style. What's not to enjoy? It was like the rollercoaster I got sick on at Whatever Point in Ohio. There. There's RacerX's Dime Tour Review.
I hated fast moving zombies in other movies (eventhough I did enjoy the Dawn of the Dead remake), but they work in these because of the "virus". If they can even be called zombies because they eventually die from starvation and they're dead. Normal zombies, in time, would just rot away...and not move fast.
The opening sequence, how the virus came back, the containment scene, the subway scene...It's was like eating an O Henry bar - intense!
