A real treat
3 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having read the book after watching the movie I was surprised to see exactly how closely the movie was. Some of the lines and acting in this movie are amazing. Lines like 'we are the sons of the free' spoken before embarking on the apocalypse was so cool.

Every character in this movie is played out and acted in sculpture like artistic quality. The whole 'ancient' graveyard median location is done so well it just carries you there.

The real treat from the movie that you don't get in the book comes from the last 15-20mins of the movie. I can't say what these characters are without adding spoilers but this is where the movie improved on the book in explosive fashion. Have fun, enjoy! But before you go, I've got to show you my real face. Yes yes, that's how it works you see. First I show you then they'll take me.
