Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Ana goes home to her peaceful suburban residence, but she is unpleasantly surprised the morning that follows when her husband is brutally attacked by her zombified neighbor. In the chaos of her once picturesque neighborhood, Ana flees and stumbles upon a police officer named Kenneth, along with more survivors who decide that their best chances of survival would be found in the deserted Crossroads Shopping Mall. When supplies begin running low and other trapped survivors need help, the group comes to the realization that they cannot stay put forever at the Shopping Mall, and devise a plan to escape.

What the fuck was that? I just saw something.
You didn't see shit, Bart. Shut the fuck up.

See? I told you I saw something!

These things don't win Oscars, but they're darn entertaining!!
Zombies take control of small-town America, only for the inhabitants to realize that it's a global plague. They take refuge in a mall and try to fight off the undead.
Remake of Romero's classic is very well executed by first-timer Snyder. The characters and the script are entertaining and the action's good. Director Snyder finds a good balance between action, horror and comedy.
I thoroughly enjoyed this flick. It isn't more than it tries to be: fun, popcorn entertainment.
Be sure to watch the end credits!! Perhaps this is the only weak spot in the film.
