Ever since George Romero made “Night of the Living Dead” there have been films about zombies, but few manage to be worth watching. Directors have tried applying comedy (“Shaun of the Dead”) and even Jane Austen (“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”) to the theme, but most efforts plod along as ineptly as the zombies themselves. The Girl With All the Gifts takes a new bite at the cherry.
I’ll admit I enjoy sci-fi and generally give any sci-fi movie a go. And this one comes with recommendations galore – inlcuding e.g. a score of 8.2 on IMDB and score of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it must be pretty good.
