Trivia

The car featured in the chase scene is a 2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed. Bentley does not participate in product placement, so the film's producers purchased three of the cars for approximately $150,000. One car was mistakenly driven into a gorge; the second was used for the lion's share of the stunt shots. The filmmakers were astonished at how durable the car was despite the punishment it took; by the time filming concluded, the car only needed a cosmetic refit. Its frame and engine were all intact.

When the infected guy places the severed hand against the hand scanner, the fingers are curled. When he pulls the hand away the scanner shows a digital image as if the hand were pressed flat against it. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Kane: Like so many epidemics before, the loss of so many lives began with a single microscopic organism. It's human nature to seek even the smallest comfort in reason, or logic for events as catastrophic as these. But a virus doesn't choose a time or place. It doesn't hate or even care. It just happens.

So much fun
16 March 2008 | by sjbeattieSee all my reviews

OK, I'm not claiming its good but it is serious fun. It is basically a mix of the Mad Max films in Scotland but also throw in some scenes from 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, LOTR and Braveheart.

If you can imagine that then you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect - no, I didn't think you could.

It does just massively rip off all the above but as I said, I'm not claiming its good, just a lot of fun.

Added bonus is the great music choices which just add to the fun - "Good Tning" by FYC when the main lunatic introduces himself to the crowd and "Two Tribes" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood for the big car chase.

Not gonna win an Oscar but a hell of a ride.
