Director Breck Eisner (yes, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner's son) directed a stinker 5 years ago (Sahara). Is the zombie/post-apocalypse genre more up his alley?
"...has the makings of a certified hit."
— Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"...easily the most accomplished bit of contextless, big-budget pre-apocalyptic doomsaying since Zack Snyder's 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead."
— Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
"...Eisner stages a series of nifty action sequences, nearly all of which feature a moment of surprise, as well as gruesome wit..."
— Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
"...emerges an above-average genre piece that's equal parts horror-meller and doomsday action thriller."
— Dennis Harvey, Variety
"...a perfectly competent genre film in a genre that has exhausted its interest for me, the Zombie Film."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
