Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (11 ):

Scott Stewart of the San Francisco special effects house The Orphanage makes his directorial debut here, and it's something of a mess. The movie unsuccessfully combines elements of Night of the Living Dead with The Terminator. The plot doesn't often make sense, especially the question of just why waitress Charlie is "the chosen one."

The battles often take place in grimy darkness -- and the result is often more numbing than it is thrilling. Still, some of the visual effects on the zombie creatures are nicely creepy, and a solid collection of actors -- including Dennis Quaid and Charles S. Dutton -- makes some of the downtime between violent moments bearable.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
