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".

The movie is NOTHING like the book! I often found myself confused in many parts like, "Did this even happen in the book?" No, it most likely didn't. Yes the features are very good and scary, but I prefer movies that actually pay attention to the book, not just doing their own thing. Also, to the people who keep saying it is a "zombie" movie, READ THE BOOK THEY AREN'T ZOMBIES. Zombies are people who come back from the dead. TST has CRANKS which are people with a brain a destroying disease called the flare. They are unable to control their bodies because the brain is being destroyed. HUGE DIFFERENCE GET IT RIGHT PEOPLE!!!! (sorry I'm not trying to be offensive if you think I am)

Was a great movie! I enjoyed it from start to finish, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. BUT... If you read the books, and accuracy is what your looking for, then your not going to find it. It is nothing like the books and if you try to line the two up you will be extremely confused. It's a completely different story. And that's were the fifth star went. But the movie itself was great and I do suggest it.
