Really bad: The main character randomly shout words many times while hitting his friends on the back. Like when running from mosnters, he better hit his friends and be "GO GOOO GOOO" instead of focusing on running at top speed. Other famous citations: "NO NOO NOO", "WAIT WAITT WAITT". Not coherence between some scenes. When they get to the small resistance, Thomas and the daughter of the leader of the resistance start escaping using the water system, and it suddenly changed from midnight when the attack started to midday when they get out of the tubes. It's no more no less than a copy of Resident Evil. Nothing interesting was added. It's one of those late movies where the story get's a bad turn and the characters get saved by chance, many times in the movie. Also, in the end of the movie, they were all surrounded, but then a guy appears driving a truck and that saves them. One guy, driving a truck, and the resistance controls the bad boys of "Umbrella".

Nothing like the book. Except I think I they got the scorch perfect. Just how I imagined it. For the people who keep calling it a Zombie film, you guys need a dictionary. Zombies are dead people brought back to life. This movie is about a disease. The monsters aren't undead. Just near death. If you ask me, they spoofed the carriers in Helix. They look almost exactly the same. And act the same.

This is understandable though as the book pulls up things that, to the first time viewer, wouldn't make any sense at all. The book starts off with them being sent through a flat trans into a pitch black hallway that drops a living molten metal into your head. This would make no sense in a movie and you'd end up with two scenes that have no video, just audio. Additionally they jumped ahead with the right arm. Still a good movie though.
