Characters and occasional pops of grim humor but after an hour and a half of disaster



famously written and re-written by half a dozen people— is not so much a story as a series of set pieces, moving from the big Philadelphia attack to a tense escape in a Newark apartment building to a nighttime operation in South Korea to a siege in Jerusalem to a haunted house-style showdown in Wales. In general the biggest scenes are the least effective, with director Marc Forster’s shaky camera nearly unbearable in 3D, and the entire uncanny valley terror of zombies wasted in a blur of bodies and teeth and carnage. The script’s weaknesses show in getting Gerry from place to place— the Jerusalem attack in particular is caused by sheer human stupidity— and in blurring past bits of non-essential world-building
