Though this film claims to be based on the book by Max Brooks,
the only similarities between the two mediums are the title and the subject of zombies.
The book follows a survivor of a zombie apocalypse as he
interviews other survivors in the quest of discovering the source of the 'virus', this adaptation merely copies the formula from other zombie flicks, with a UN official jetting across the globe
in the hope of finding a cure, while his family risk being denied military protection should he fail.
The production values, visual effects and makeup are all very
well done, but as an adaptation, this is lazy screenwriting, especially with so many other films and TV shows floating around which are basically the same thing.
