Goofs

When Aris and Thomas are spying by crawling through the vent, Aris closes the hatch before entering the secret room. The movie doesn't explain how they return to their room, considering they would never reach the vent that is high above the floor. See more »

Alternate Versions

When submitted for classification for its UK cinema release, the BBFC advised the distributors to cut some gruesome moments to avoid a 15 rating. These included some moments of threat and horror involving "zombie-like" characters and shots of injuries caused by a beating. When the film was resubmitted with these cuts made, it was given a 12A. The uncut version was later released as a limited edition Steelbook Blu-ray with a 15 rating. See more »

Nice movie on so many levels!
22 October 2015 | by palavitsinisSee all my reviews

To begin with, I have to let you know that I was not aware of the existence of any book before I saw the first and second movie. So, comments like "you ruined the book", etc. don't make sense to me.

I saw the first movie on a DVD and this one in the movie theater. For me it was pure entertainment for the entire duration of the movie! I liked the thrilling scenes and the chase from the zombie like people. At some points I could not help but thinking that it a PS4 game and at some point they would turn over the control of the actors to me and I would be left alone clicking on X or L1/R1 to run as fast as I can! I liked that but many may not like it. For me this was awesome!

The acting was OK, as expected and really similar to the first one. It's not like you wait to see an Oscar-winning performance there, right? I really enjoyed all the special effects and the amazing scenes from the cities that are crumbling and falling apart. The movie seemed a lot longer than it is. The action-packed and full story behind it, gave too much information and left me feeling really "full" after watching it and this was not because of the XXL pop corn that I ate!

I will go to the movies to see the third one, with excitement! And yes, it definitely is an "8" in its genre. "7" felt like a minimum, so I would easily give a "7.5" with pleasure! If you don't like this kind of post-apocaliptic stories, wait till it's out in DVD, don't spend money in the movies. If you do like them, go and see it, like yesterday!
