    This was a better movie than i had been led to believe by the adverse publicity. Agreed – the 3rd act is bolted on – but sit back and revel in the Israel scenes – they are very well done.

    I never people what the public say I always want to see it for myself. I also agree, the Israel scenes were really good. Word on the street was that there was a falling cat shooped into the graphics when all the zombies climbed each other and tried to get to the helicopter. This has yet to be proven, but I haz high hopes. 🙂
