I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this movie which features another fine performance by Will Smith and an impressive rendering of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan. And I can let slide my standard zombie complaint that applies to this movie as well as every other zombie movie I’ve seen: if they’re so bestial and so damn hungry, why don’t they eat each other? Zombie meat not good enough for them? Anyway, I was ultimately disappointed by the ending which had an overtly anti-science theme and an implied anti-evolution message while having a savior appear because God sent her. Smith’s ultimate act also seemed totally unnecessary. Nothing was gained by him not getting in the safe with Anna and Ethan.
