Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Overall, I liked it. The story could be meatier, but it’s good enough for an action flick with a supernatural superhero battling resurrected zombies. I found myself more drawn to the supporting characters (Selma Blair, John Hurt, Rupert Evans) than to the central conflict. I think this movie has a target demographic that I’m a little outside of, but that’s ok.
