A zombie pandemic is raging through the country and Wade Vogel (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is trying to protect his teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin), who’s been bitten, for as long as he can. An intriguing low-budget project for a star like Schwarzenegger who’s taken on one of his greatest acting challenges. His performance is low-key and perfectly fine for the film; Breslin is also good as his suffering daughter. However, after a while this morose zombie movie is defeated by its rather mundane dreariness and the story’s sheer inevitability.
