    No you are right on the money. And that is why I mentioned that if you go in expecting a zombie film you will be disappointed

    I’m just wondering, not having seen the movie, but wouldn’t it make sense that there is no ‘zombie apocalypse’ if the infection moves so slowly that not only are victims easily identified before they become contagious (so there’s limited opportunity for it to spread), and quarantine facilities are able to be set up because there is clearly time to segregate the infected. So wouldn’t the dearth of zombie shamblers at least be internally consistent? I guess ultimately it seems like it’s not a zombie film but a film about coping with terminal illness, and the illness just happens to be zombification. In which case, the movie could have been about cancer, but zombies are cool right now, and if Schwarzenegger is looking to get recognition for his acting chops these days, it’ll get more attention having the zombie angle. I will definitely check it out, and I’m not criticising the review – which seems quite fair – but I’m just wondering if we miss the point if we go in expecting a zombie movie?
