The mad cow disease evolved to effect human beings, which turned them into zombies. One fateful bite and the infection gets transferred. The virus spreads, consuming the world with only a handful of human survivors left. Columbus (Eisenberg) a 20-something youth, abides by a self-created set of rules which has managed to keep him human. He is making his way half-way across the country to make sure his parents are still alive and comes across Tallahasse (Harrelson), a Twinkie-loving cowboy who gains sadistic pleasure from killing zombies. Wichita (Stone) and her kid sister, Little Rock (Breslin) are successful con-artists who dupe Columbus and Tallahasse of their vehicle and weapons on more than one occasion. Realising that the four still need each others company if they wish to survive, they make their way to an amusement park in Los Angeles. The movie seems to be inspired from the Will Smith starrer I Am Legend, the only difference being is that this movie has a comedy aspect attached to it. Woody Harrelson puts on an amazing performance and is someone you have to watch out for. The story is interesting but gets slow and boring around the half-way mark. Its the climax that is the perhaps the highlight of the entire movie. Some parts are gory but that doesn't mean the movie is not watchable.
Thumbs up: Great Climax
Thumbs down: Gets a bit slow and uninteresting at times
