I thought it was pretty cool. I thought it was a little too short though, I'd have liked about 15-30 minutes more of Will by himself before everything starts happening.

Am I the only one who had 28 Days/Weeks Later flashbacks when I saw the infected?

Oh and those devildogs were absolutely killer.

It was pretty much exactly what I expected it would be.

I didn't like the way the infected people looked. I couldn't stop thinking about House of the Dead, the video game where you shoot at the zombies. It was distracting.

My favorite scene was when Will Smith was reciting along with the Shrek dvd. I thought that was really creepy.

I was glad that I wasn't the one who paid for the tickets.

I thought it was very entertaining. Not much character development though. Will Smith and the dog were cool.

Has to contain some of the worst CGI I've ever seen for a big budget movie of this kind.

I enjoyed the scenes shot during the day, but everything else was pathetic. 28 Days Later did it better.

I LOVED it! The CGI didn't bother me, because, well, I don't really play video games . . . and at least the whole thing wasn't phoney looking.

I was so tense and taught for almost the entire movie. The only other movies I can remember being that tense at, off the top of my head, were "United 93" and "Silence of the Lambs".

Great, great flick. Will Smith was awesome. The scene where he finally talks to the girl mannequin in the video store just broke my heart.

Ha ha, me too. I was seriously creeped out by the first glimpse of the zombie dudes.

I really enjoyed the movie.

I found the crap CGI far too distracting. The wildlife and "monsters" were cartoony and reminded me of the Imhotep in Stephen Sommers' equally dreadful The Mummy. Talk about a mood killer.

Also, the less said about the ending the better.

Great performance by Smith, though.

The effects used on zombies didn't bother me that much, but they weren't great either. The effects and attention to detail were incredible though. That distracted me from any possibly mediocre effects work in the entire film.

The Flood in Halo scare me a bit more though, but hey, it's fucking Halo.

I have this on audio and find it hard to get into. My son saw the movie and said it's great, he is a big Will Smith fan though.
