Quite concise. I saw it tonight, and was actually quite pleased. I would say it is good enough to put on the shelf next to Shaun of the Dead.

The thing I found fascinating was Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin's character development. With how their characters were behaving through the better part of the film, they were usually the kind that would be "Marked for Death" within the typified horror movie rubric. It wasn't till about the third act that they started to deviate from their "fate," as it were.

Some would find this problematic, since the development seemed a touch hastened, but all was revealed as act three barreled on. I know a lot of sticklers will still have a problem with it after the fact, but I really didn't after all was said and done.

A lot of people have been saying that after the big cameo in the film, which is too good to spoil, the film kind of went downhill. I don't think it was meant to try and compete with a Romero film, it was just a fun ride through Zombieland.
