This movie was amazing because it was one of the few to shed light on the post rock seen in the uk with the song East Hastings by Godspeed You Black Emporer

I know some people will always believe otherwise, but i feel its a zombie movie, and it is widely regarded as such. And may i point out, the origin of zombies are people infected with vodoo curses, the orgins of zombies had nothing to do with undead, flesh eating creatures. So this fits easily into the zombie genre, just a new take

This is definitely a zombie movie - while a reinvention, or re-explaining of how zombies can become real, and possibly unintentionally a zombie movie, it contains all of the same pre-requisites: collapse of society, small number of survivors, people that have been changed into mindless, animalistic forces of death, the ability to spread due to bite to healthy people, etc. Definitely a zombie movie.

They are not zombies. You are welcome to disagree, but you will still be wrong. It doesn't take any more effort than commentary on the DvD in which the director himself says " this is not a zombie film and they are not zombies." and then goes in to detail on why they aren't zombies.

Zombies are undead creatures in horror that hunger for human flesh. In this movie the people are infected and still alive. They are not Zombies they are infected. Good movie but not a Zombie movie.

It's a zombie movie all right. They're not technically dead but that's not really the point of zombies as a plot device, antagonistic force or metaphore. Virus or alien ray...beating or necrotic heart, a zombie is a zombie.

To those who keep saying this is a "ZOMBIE MOVIE", get a grip and face reality please. The general consensus of zombies in fiction is that they are reanimated corpses who feast on the living and act on the instinct to feed alone. The infected in 28 Days Later do neither. While they've been shown to bite people, this is merely a way for them to infect non-infected. There's a huge difference between being dead and having been reanimated, i.e a zombie, and being infected with a virus that makes you overflow with rage against anyone non-infected. The only real goal the infected have in 28 Days Later is to infect or kill any non-infected. The infected are also not dead as they are very much alive, the Rage virus has merely made them lose all capability of reason and even self-preservation. As the virus name suggests, they act on Rage alone. However, they are NOT DEAD, they do NOT FEED ON THE LIVING and as thus they are NOT ZOMBIES and it is therefore NOT A ZOMBIE MOVIE. It's merely a viral outbreak movie. No matter what anyone says the fact is it's not a zombie movie. Deal with it. As for the movie itself, it's really good and if you haven't watched it you need to, immediately. As many others have said the ending is meh but overall the movie is good and deserves a watch.

This movie is pretty cool but completely stupid in the end. They make so many stupid mistakes that are just not realistic at all, up to the point that I got frustrated watching the movie. I guess the directing is great but the script not so great...

Generally speaking a ZOMBIE movie deals with either reanimated humans (undead) or humans reduced mentally to their basest instincts, (no cognitive thought). 28 Days Later is predicated on a virus that inhibits the ability to reason by enahncing a person's rage to the extent that they can only attack and kill. This does not equate to a "zombie movie". I think because they LOOK like zombies, people quickly lump them in. I do however think that the basis loses merit as the infected don't attack each other, showing some form of reason, and all rage is directed at animate beings instead of random violence toward any object. Still easily in the top 5. My $0.02

To the post above mine: There are plenty of people who would disagree. Zombies are traditionally un-dead, those who have died and come back to life...well, sort of. Though I can understand why some people who are ignorant in mythology would not see the difference between un-dead and viral outbreak.

Easily a ZOMBIE MOVIE. That's what infected movies are, ZOMBIE MOVIES. A highly contagious virus that causes people to become violent and animal like... ZOMBIE MOVIE

For those who disqualify 28 days later because it is not a "zombie" movie you should read the tag line - Top 20 Post-Apocalyptic Movies. The two are not equated and an apocalypse can occur through a virus just the same as through zombies. With that said this should be number 1 on the list without a doubt, regardless of whether they are zombies or infected humans. Peace.

I totally believe this movie is what P.A. films try to look up to. The only thing I find wrong with it is after 15 minutes, I too got tired of hearing him whining about sex. It's hard to follow a story with a character that just wants to fulfill his own desires.

Great movie, i live for post apocalyptic movies and dream of it happening in my life time. Bring people back in tune with nature where the strong live and the weak die. I'm very critical of this genre and i absolutely loved it. My best memories in life are of my dogs and 1 in particular who passed while i was in iraq, so i connected with the main character in the film on a deeper level if you can get passed to poor cinematography and the light hearted points, it's a fantastic film and worthy of it's place. Also, the best ending in film EVER.

Ellison deserve the whole clap, not L. Q. Jones nor the movie itself. I mean, is a good movie, an end like that is just terrific, but A Boy And His Dog could be better. The desolate landscape gave a realistic image, also. But the ideia of the film, Ellison's story what's really brilliant. Good post apocalyptic movie, not the best. Amazing novel by Ellison, one of the bests.

This is one movie that helped inspire and is frequently reffered to in many post apocalyptic games like Fallout. Great show, I love the relationship Vic has with his dog and the things he'll sacrifice to save it. The way they constantly bicker at eachother is halarious!

This movie deserves #1 because it not only has an interesting, original storyline; but because it set the tone for post-apocalyptic fiction yet to come. The film is well acted, it's funny, satirical and really shows human kind for what they become when they sacrifice dignity and human equality for survival.

I think its one of the best in the genre, despite the degrading look on women. And everybody who has a problem with that is stupid beacuse in a post apocalyptic world wiht little to no morale left in society, that is probably what would happen to some women.

Not a great movie - but still solid. There is no message - just a slice of life in a nasty post-apoc world. I think that the premise is solid – I know plenty of teen-age boys that would act like “the Boy” in the aftermath, that makes it last on every post-apoc list.

"Thought this would be epic, considering it always falls in high on the post-apocalyptic lists. But I gotta tell ya people, after listening to that apparent sex-addict whine about not getting laid for the first 15 minutes of the film, I just had to stop." This was said by someone else who rated this movie before me, but I had the same experience. Only difference is, I heard people ranting about the ending, so I had to see it. Big mistake. It was brutal and wrong, and not in a thought provoking kinda way. Bleh.

I have to say I was very disappointed with this series. I find that there was incredibe potential with the idea but, to my opinion, they didn't live up to my expectations at all. Everytime main characters get in trouble they always survive against all odds, which makes it a lot less stressful when they do, because you know how it will end.

I have watched all of season one and season two. I really like the post-apocalyptic genre and tried to make this one work. Unfortuneatly, this show never did it for me. Its too much like a soap opera - Too touchy feely emotional. It looses its character is an post-apocalyptic movie. The acting is aweful and the plot starts to drag on. I think its a combination of poor writing and poor acting which make this not worth the time.

While most TV series can be scene by scene predictable for me, and I monogamously stick with my HOROR genre** The Walking Dead has me reborn into the can't wait until NEXT WEEK excitement. PUFF, Pause….. Pass...... THUMBS, TOES, and blunts held HIGH to all cast, directors, writers, producers, stunt crew, and most of all special effects. SMH...... I ask you this one ?????, How many network TV series have an immediate "HOT DISCUSSION" type of, as you would say, LIVE BLOG BRIGADE to follow every episode? Heck, try sitting through an original THE INCREDIBLE HULK episode from the '70's and '80's with out falling asleep or laughing up a portion of your left lung. **Stick to the rules, NO ONE IS SAFE, and horror type are the only thing I can watch due to this… RELATIONSHIPS/HEROES blah blah blah… whatever.

I would give this series the #1. Works your emotions in all levels. I thinks its great to center the tense around "living humans" meanwhile the "living dead" fall to a second place in importance. Great actors, great filming and great zombie makeup, (its not computer)

I really like this show! There are only three things that I can complain about. 1. The acting isn't all that. Don't get me wrong, it's good. But there are times when the characters argue that the acting just seems like a competition of jutting forward their jaws, and seeing who can sound like the biggest badass. 2. The characters are a bit too linear. They don't change enough. And I like dynamic characters! Who wouldn't change in a zombie-apocalypse? 3. Thirdly (And least important), the TV-series is not near as dark as the comic, from which it derives is. But all in all, these are not reasons enough for me to stop watching it, it just bothers me a little, and I am very picky. But anyone who is into zombies, survival, post-apocalypse and the like will probably love this!

in order to get a great series in motion and to make sure it has a strong foundation, you must have character development. TWD has many characters, so the show started off with a good amount of action, but it needed character development in season 2.. season 3 is set to be intense and i truly feel sorry for you if you jumped off the bandwagon due to character development....

Okay, maybe it doesn't belong in this list since it's a series, not a movie. All that aside, this is not only a wonderfully executed, realistic view of what a zombie apocalypse would be like and how people would deal with it, but it may very well be the most entertaining show on television right now! There's a reason why people can't stop talking about it. Is it ground-breaking and fresh? Nope. Is it awesome? ABSOLUTELY! The characters are well developed and realistic, the cast is talented, the story is gripping. I can't say enough good things about this show. I can't wait to see the next episode! -dalton

Actually the writers of the comics are involved in the TV series, and chose to change the story so they could explore ideas they didn't think they'd have time for in the comic. That and they wanted to give the readers of the comic some surprises. Other that that, I've quite enjoyed the series, I've always been interested in the mindset of the survivors, and TWD explores that more most series.

It's amazing how you can get drawn into this series. Sure, it's easy to be an armchair QB while watching. That's part of the fun. I think the human drama is excellent, although in a scenario like that we'd pretty much see the worst in us surface. Can't wait for next season.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior Report Abuse
This movie basically created an entire genre of films set in a Post-Apocalyptic wasteland. Often imitated, never duplicated, this movie had it all: crazy S&M biker gangs, badass leather clad scavengers and an awesomely harsh desert setting in the wastelands of Australia where water and fuel are the only valuable commodities.

Without doubt sets the bar for countless films and video games to come. The first film Mad Max is also excellent but seriously crippled by budget and poor script continuity. APOCALYPSE? Hands down number one!

Don't get me wrong, it was a great film and I loved how it leaves you to fill in the gaps. But there is only so much I can take of a kid whining. The film was a bit too bleak for me and somewhat unrealistic. It is hard to imagine a post apocalyptic world being that colourless. Think about it - there was not a single living plant - if there are no plants, there would be no oxygen to breathe. So how could there be people? A post apocalyptic world that can support human life would not be that bleak. There is room for optimism in a post apocalyptic world.

This movie is a masterpiece, definitely the best of the genre ever made. It is beatiful, but at the same time painful to see. That painful that it made me depressed by one week after watch it, and since then I have not be able of watching it again (despite the fact I would like to).

I read the book and saw the movie. I did not like either. With that said, they both were brilliant! As a dad my anxiety was through the roof during both the book and movie. I can not even come close to grasping how to move on knowing sooner than later I will not be able to protect my child from the inevitable. This is not a movie to enjoy but a movie to make you realize how vulnerable and even insignificant we are in this world.

I love post apocalyptic movies and actually hadn't heard of this, so I had to rent. This movie makes all the others look like childs play. The thought of trying to keep your son out of harms way of the cannibalistic clans is horrifying. I actually had to pause the movie a couple times to just breathe. A must see if you are willing to take a glimpse into, what I feel, is the most realistic scenerio that I've seen yet.

I can totally understand those people who hate this film and see it as 'uneventful' and would not criticize their opinion, however it is my opinion that The Road is a brilliant and genuine (albeit bleak and depressing) depiction of what a post-apocalyptic future would hold for humanity. It is exactly the elements which people do not like the movie for that I find to be the best qualities. For some people a movie which holds no promise of a 'happy ending' and does not boast action packed sequences is characterized as a 'bad movie' but for me, my pleasure was found in the thought proving, haunting and moving element of The Road. As a HUGE fan of the genre and a person who does not shy away from 'negative' emotion - (reality is not always sunshine and roses - BUT that isn't a bad thing!) I really would recommend this movie to others as it is perhaps a wholly possible portrayal of our (distant - not too distant?) future - but be warned expect a lump in your throat, a bitter after taste and many unanswered questions!

Terrible film. I'll give it credit for being realisitic but what really counts in a film is how entertaining and enjoyable it is to watch. And in this criteria the film fails, it is slow paced, has almost no action and is frankly boring.

This was a very strong and powerful movie, yes it isn't full of action but if you want to see into a world on the aftermath of an apocalyptic disaster this is something you can believe. The realism creates scary and eery atmospheres making you feel uncomfortable, but there are also moments of joy. People are saying there is no meaning, no story. If you have seen the whole movie, and people complaining of the ending, it shows that through all the people they encounter, there is still some humanity left

If you love this genre, you have to read Cormac McCarthy's novel. After I finished it I thought to myself, 'there is no way they can make this into a movie properly'....and I was right. The film was disappointing in that it didn't embody the horror and infinite dread of the land described in the novel.

And just for the record, if you thought it was realistic just how incredibly cowardly he was, you should hope and pray with all your might that this never happens because you end up getting eaten. The world depicted in the movie has ZERO room for hesitation and weakness, which Vigo's character nailed perfectly. I mean, this is more than simple tactically evaluating whether or not it is worth it to engage or run, it is full blown cowardice

I agree with the comment above. This film is indeed spectacular. I can't understand how anybody can post comment saying the storyline is bad. It shows a complete lack of intelligence and understanding. Yes, it is bleak and yes, it is heart-wrenchingly sad in parts, but far from these aspects detracting from the overall brilliance of the film, they, in a massive way, contribute to it. If you're an idiot, don't watch this film - there is plenty of Sex and the City type crap out there for you - watch that instead.

Within the genre, this movie is exceptional and should take first place. Bar none. As a work of art dealing with somber topics - the maintenance of hope & love in a world of hopelessness and deathly intent - it is spectacular. This movie truly moved me. During the watching, and for the evening afterward, I was overwhelmed with the bleakness presented, the intensity of the emotions involved, and the reality of subject matter. But by the following day, I had sifted through the emotional paralysis and 'saw the light'. Brilliant and vital.

Bleak, haunting, beautiful and tragic, I keep going back to this film every few months to get a fix, I all ways feel strange for a few days after watching – I think ultimately it helps balance me out by reflecting on what we do have. Last film to do that to me was Spinal Tap.

Possibly the most frightening film I've ever seen. It is scary, because it feels real. Not like a horror movie, like something from real life. I understand why a lot of people wouldn't like this movie. Putting it simply, it is so goddamn bleak that you are likely to feel uncomfortable watching it, and perhaps call it a bad movie because of that. However the movie is actually extremely powerful, I watched it a year ago but I can't forget it.

I can't get the movie out of my head. I read the book, thinking that it might quell my thoughts about the movie by filling in blanks, but it left me with the same longings. A view of the world gone bad from a perspective I can completely relate to - a father and son (I have two sons). Think about what the actual disaster was (my best guess is an asteroid hit). Think about this being the waning days of mankind, similar to what the dinosaurs must have seen. Haunting movie.

This is a movie u either loved or hated. It WAS depressing, which made it all the more powerful. Like the mediocraty of evil, a post apocalytic world would probably be just pretty a real downer. Loved Vigo! Thought about the underlying theme of cannibilism at the end and if that kid might be a new addition to the family or dinner.

Great movie. Totally realistic. No zombies or mutants (not that there's anything wrong with them). But you don't need zombies when you have cannibals running around in gangs. This movie really makes u think. One great natural disaster (like Yellowstone region blowing, and it's overdue) and this is what u get. When natural resources run out, civilization breaks down, then humans do whatever it takes to survive. Scary scenario. "I can only say it is sublime in its simplicity as you do not know what or how it happens" It took me a while into the movie to figure out what happened, but had to be a worldwide shift in the earth's mantle to cause worldwide volcanic activity.

This was the most haunting book and movie I have ever read and seen. It is so incredibly accurate as to what will probably become our planet and its survivers if we have too many natural cataclysms (or man made ones for that fact). I can only say it is sublime in its simplicity as you do not know what or how it happens because when it comes down to it, it doesnt matter when you are trying to stay alive on a waisteland crawling with canables and trying to protect your child from these very evils.

I have searched the net for recommendations in this genre and I have watched and watched.... at time disappointed, at times unmoved and at times pleasantly surprised - when I watched Children Of Men it was most definitely the latter! As is The Road - this is a grim and realistic post apocalyptic film. I would also agree with the comment (a few above) that:- ''I also like how much is left to be implied without undue concern for what the more thick-headed viewers might miss if it isn't utterly spelled out in bold letters.''

Post #5 : "True Post-Apocalyptic movies (The Road, On the Beach) don't - and shouldn't - have happy endings." Damn straight they shouldnt!

@the above poster. It should be at the top of every list, everywhere. Even non-movie lists. Yes, it's that good. Screenplay is absolutely terrific, great acting, great storyline. I don't think I blinked during the entire movie, and after it was over I found myself literally sitting on the edge of my seat (seriously). This is the kind of movie that stays with you years after you watch it. Easily one of the best movies of all time, it's a shame that more people haven't seen it.

This movie creates an interesting place that I want to find out more about, there really is a sense of alternate reality. It took me away for a while. That can't be said about many films. I also like how much is left to be implied without undue concern for what the more thick-headed viewers might miss if it isn't utterly spelled out in bold letters.

Like others on this thread, I was spellbound by the cinematography. The 15 minute single camera, single shot has got to be one of the most amazing accomplishments in cinema. Technical aside, the story was fantastic, the film was flawless.

The guy that commented two spots above me- I guess that you'd rather be watching something like The Expendables or some other mind-numbing piece of garbage like that if you thought that Children of Men "was kinda boring at parts". Also, I can never trust anyone's opinion on a movie that spells the words paid and probably like you did. One single movie had my top two favorite scenes of all time in it. The continuously shot scene where Julianne Moore gets shot in the head, and the scene where Clive Owen carries the baby out of the destroyed hotel and everything stops. I'm not sure if it's the best movie ever, but it is definitely in the top 3 in my personal opinion.

I really enjoyed this film but have to agree with comment #4 I would have loved to see a little more post-apocalyptic world!

Great movie! I watched the original theatrical version a couple times. I liked it much better the second time around... For those of you scoffing at it saying it's depressing or has a retarded ending, watch the alternate ending version. Yes, there is one and I liked it much more than the theatrical release. Why this wasn't the version that showed in theaters is beyond me, but I would be willing to bet that the ratings would have been a lot better with the alternate ending version. Of course, that's just my opinion.

Well since I have not seen anyone mention the fact that "I am Legend" is a remake movie anyway and not as accurate to the book as the Charleston Heston movie "The Omega Man" I figured I'd speak up. Yes the Book I am legend is a really good book, and I would recommend it to anyone, but Hollywood has really been taking to many liberties with good books and making to many changes and it does ruin the entire consept of the book. Watch "the omega man", then re-read the original "I am legend", then decide which is closer to the book. I like Will Smith and all, and the movie was good, but not complimentary to the book.

Completely ruined the whole point of the book by making it a movie. In the book he captures the "monsters" in order to test on them and find a cure. When the "monsters" rescue their own kind at the end he realizes that he himself is the monster in their eyes. He is the legend that they tell eachother about and that he is the bad guy. Hence "I am legend"

To all of you who thought this was a good movie, maybe you're right but I do know the first adaptation before hollywood ex's butchered it to make a pg 13 rated version to get kids to go watch it too, would have been a great movie. we were talking arnold swartenger in a last human strong hold medievil style fort because civilization fell and technology slide with the fall of man, and vampires were warlike and primitive with orc like disfigurations and war drums and blood lust like you wouldn't believe ripping apart humans to shower in the blood as it pours onto them savagery, so the movie would have taken place as arnold is faced with the task of finding a cure while fighting off the waves and waves of vampires knowing one of hte last humans they know of is in that fort and they are all so hungry to get at him first and it's a full blown out seige...yeah instead we got will smith crying at night in a bathtub and playing golf on a battle ship during the day...yay for hollywood

to the guy that said it was a retarded ending, you are clearly retarded. the cure was in the blood of the vampire that he gave to the woman and her son. they brought it to the survivor colony. they leave the story off so we can assume that there was in fact, at least one high level scientist left to extract the cure from the vile of blood, thus, saving the human population.

The entire reason everyone has a problem with this movie is because NOTHING w3as kept the same except the main character's name. He was a middle aged white man, normal guy not aq scientist. His wife and kid's story wasn't the same. The original book, the dog was only in 1 chapter and died in that chapter (halfway through the book it shows up) the "zombies" were not zombies but were actually vampires that could think and act normally, he spent 90% of the book in his house wrestling with his thoughts and trying to live day by day. People saying that they don't know how people could expect the movie to be similar to the book because the book is long... it was a short story and was only 100 pages. They would have had excess time in the movie. There are ONLY like two similarities and it's NOT an exaggeration that the movie could have been named something completely different and no one would have known. If the movie was made with Matheson's permission, it literally wouldn't violate copyright law because they are so dissimilar. Peopel assume we're exaggerating, but it's actually the truth. Read the short story and the book and realize how different they are.

It's funny that so many people always compare the novels with the movies. How can you expect that kind of detail that you have read, to be perfectly condensed into a 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour time frame? Honestly? If you like movies, watch the movie; if you prefer to read, read the book! If you aren't a toddler, you already know that there is never going to be a perfect presentation of any idea, that makes everyone happy, and all of the critics speechless. I enjoy this movie, and also enjoyed most on this list. Others don't, oh well. It doesn't take anything away from my experience. If you haven't seen it, give it a shot, and come to your own conclusion. I don't understand why so many people have to insult each other over opinions, and I think it's sad. Hopefully, it's no real indication of where humankind is headed!

I am surprised so many people hate the movie - I can only guess it is because some people don't like Will Smith because there are very few comments that provide any cogent reasons other than "I didn't like it". I don't know what he did wrong - although I must admit a less recognisable actor would have given it an edge. I thought it was a fantastic story line (I haven't read the book). I found the infected scary but admit it would have been better if they looked like more traditional zombies. So people tell me... WHY don't you like it?

This movie was planned to end like the novel. In the initial screenings the result received very negative feedback from the test audience, and the a more "positive ending" was written. I don't know if we can expect a "directors cut" on this one, however. It seems like the changes was pretty early in the production...

What he means is that "Last man on earth was the first movie based on Matheson's novel, it's also the one that is most true to the novel. In my list of movies based on it I'd put Omega man as 1, Last man on earth 2 and I am legend as 3. (haven't seen I am Omega) Nothing really wrong with it, but, like Postman I'd have liked it better if it wasn't connected through name to a novel, they would both have had more "freedom in judgement". (e.g. I wouldn't have compared them to a story I know and they could thereby not "go wrong", so to say)

I believe they shouldn't have even named it "i am legend". Because that means they based it off the amazing book by Richard Matheson, and the movie had almost nothing to do with the book. In the book, there is no hope at the end. He becomes the monster to the monsters, he is legand. The irony is mind blowing, but they didn't capture this at all in the movie. So the title its self makes no sense,,,

A great storyline. The "zombie" CGI looked exaclty that.. CGI. The way they climbed walls, and were pretty much uneffected by smashing their fists and head into objects that would otherwise shatter bone.

Anyone calling this a Pro-Christian movie clearly missed the ending. We basically come to understand that our blind hero has essentially been guided, empowered and protected by God to a single purpose: to deliver the last known copy of the Bible to the new "Eden", Only, once the Bible is transcribed and printed, it's put on a shelf with books from every other major religion from the pre-apocalyptic society, essentially reinforcing a common, modern, multicultural idea that all religions lead to the same God.

I find the comments and debate on this movie extremely funny! Why do atheist, agnostics and members of non-christian believers not like this movie? Since when did your religious stance mean you couldn't accept other religious view points. least of all IN A FILM! Come on guys! I am a true atheist (all ways have been, all ways will be) but the religious element to this film did not bother or sway my rating of the film whatsoever! It was a decent and enjoyable post-apocalyptic movie (it wouldn't be up there with my favorites) but I would definitely watch it again. Comment #6 and #19 HAHAHAHA - Open your closed little minds and accept not everyone must think and act as you do - ''christian propaganda'' that's a joke - I think you should look up the definition of propaganda before making such ridiculous claims! Kelly :)

I think this movie is excellent as a post-apocalyptic movie. Great photo, realistic etc. It gets a bit too much with the whole bible message and all but not to the point that it ruins the movie. For post-apocalyptic movie fans, it definetely deservs a place in a top-10 list.

This movie put me in such a terrible mindset of dread, uncertainty and shudder-some for days after watching it. This film embodies the essential ingredients mixed and delivered in such a way; it becomes the most connected-to-life film I have every seen. I must say that I love this film but I have to prepare myself to view it again.

I liked this movie. it contained most of the elements to be on this list. For me this was a flawless depiction on how religion can be used both for good and evil. And the hero was a man of faith it left it up to the viewer to decide if he had help from a "god". This tricky subject matter was handled very proficiently and the storytelling was good. If I had a beef it would be that the editing in some areas made me feel like the film was re-edited (I havent read the book) but just felt clunky. I would hope this isnt indicative of focus group editing but I have no idea.

I liked the movie, I don't understand why so many people dislike it, they say the message is "God FTW" but rather this man gave 30 years of his life safe-guarding the book with his life because he believed in God, not because God is Actually real (but he might be)

First off, your comment is nearly impossible to understand. Learn English. The point is not to make Christians feel good about themselves, the point is that religion is a powerful tool. The power of faith is a part of it, but that can be applied to anything, not just Christianity. They used Christianity because it applies to so many of the people that would be watching the movie and because of Christianity's history with being used with evil intent (Crusades, etc.). If they just made up a religion it wouldn't make sense and it would defeat the purpose. This is a great movie that's not afraid to be pro-Christian in an increasingly anti-Christian pop media.

Seems like most people that don't like this movie don't like how it involved a bible... Which somehow automatically means it's religious. The only religious message is that religion causes people to act violently.... That's about all I can muster up

It's a good movie, really. First of all, yes he is blind. It's actually no secret at all. You can notice it in the first scene, with the rat. He clearly can't see it but he can hear it. That's why he tells the rat that it has to come get the food, as he can't see where to put it. There are about 5-10 scenes that obviously shows he's blind. And I wouldn't say it's pro-christianity. Rather it says that religion is a powerful tool, and weapon. Nothing is really pro-christianity in the movie. I mean all scenes where people say that he should have died or such, were fully realistic (Now to remember that it's just a movie.) He has his faith and that's why he survives. Just like how a mother can do amazing things and even sacrifice herself to save her child.

It was a great film. Great action, entertaining, stunning visuals, great message and it reminded me of fallout (which is a plus). I think this film gets the right balance between having good action sequences that keep you entertained and also having a powerful message. Too many idiots give this film negative reviews for the sole reason that it gives a pro-Christian message, it really seems to get under their skin. Overall one of my favourite movies and a must see. P.S. about the ending I've noticed lot's of people saying he was blind but I just assumed he could see but had learned to read braille.

I'm sorry this movie belongs on the worst 20 post-apocalyptic movies of all times. Hands down this movie is propaganda garbage, and should be avoided by anyone. That is unless you like extremely unrealistic, cheesy, religious, cliche, boring trash. I like Denzel, and post-apocalyptic movies are my favorite, but please don't watch this movie. It will scar the images of both in your mind permanently.

Come on guys, it wasn't THAT bad. I think it had a very clear message though - that religion is a weapon, a very powerful evil weapon, that can be used, and has been used throughout history, to make people obey like sheep. People should not be nice and have morals because they'll go to Hell if they don't - they should do it because it is the right thing to do. Enough said.

I thought this was one of the better post-apocalyptic movies. I have to laugh at all the non-christians who get riled up anytime a movie is about belief and faith. There are so many movies out there that advocate unbelief, or the belief in money, or the belief in power over others...what's wrong with a movie having an underlying positive message every once in a while? If you don't like this kind of thing, then don't watch it...simple as that. That acting from Oldman, Washington, and Kunis was, if not steller, still well done. The storyline was fairly original and the sets and scenery were all very gritty and believable. Lastly, to the moron who said, "What a terrible movie! So predictable. Heavily weighted pro-christian message: If you believe in God (the christian version of god, anyway) you'll survive anything," the main character didn't survive, but in fact died....guess ya missed that.

I Liked this movie! Why so many negative comments? i disagree with the comment that says it was "Heavily weighted pro-christian message", i am Not Christian; why are so many non-Christians Anti-Christian? Don't read the rest of this comment if you haven't yet watched it... The only two problems were: #1 How'd he die? i don't think it was from the wound suffered because he obviously lived a LONG time after getting shot... and #2 (This is the bigger problem with the movie)... Re-watch it... Eli is NOT blind throughout the movie... he makes eye contact with all sorts of people... The Director just screwed this up (BIG TIME!), They easily could have made it so he was not making eye contact with people, and was not SEEING things... but he was... i re-watched it just to see and when you know he's blind, it doesn't make sense! I enjoyed watching it though (and sorry for spoiling the end)

Great film, people who find it predicting were expecting a film where Eli tried to survive by mauling a bunch of lunatic freedom drunk baddies. Oh wait he did! For those of us who loved it, it was the message behind the front layer that really made this film into a great film, it wasn't about the explosions, gore, and cannibalism, it was a movie depicting the Eli's faith in God.

To the person saying this doesn't belong on the list. You realize that it is basically taking place AFTER terminator 4 right? I think you are failing to grasp the idea that all the movies take place after the robots have taken over, hence sending robots back in time to protect/kill Conner as a kid.

An apocalyptic film is where you see the transformation and the take over i.e a virus spreads. A post-apocalyptic film is set in the future after the apocalypse i.e some1 waking up in a hospital bed. However there are some films and series that can fall into both catagories.

The book was excellent, the movie not so much. Some of the actors were properly cast such as Gary Sinise as Stu Redman, Jamey Sheridan as Randall Flagg, Ruby Dee as Mother Abigail Freemantle, and pretty much the rest of the cast with one MAJOR exception..Who in the heck thought Molly Ringwald was a good choice for any part in this movie? Every other good thing about the casting was negated with that one gross error. Understandably the series suffered from plot editing due to the constraints of time and since the original uncut book was well over 700 pages.

The quintessential post apoc film. This is the start of the series so we see the end of civilized Australia and watch it fall into wastelands and anarchy (although how the apocalypse started is a mystery.) The focus is one man's sanity and shows how a cop gets pushed to be the most bad arse in the wastelands. The movies are pretty much linear and this started it all. Opinion: the greatest film ever and set the bar for so many films of the same genre. 100% worth a watch or two!

Actually it is a post apocalyptic movie, its just not stated so obviously. Theres lots of little clues like the signs saying 'Prohibited Area' on roads and the general breakdown in law and order and society in general. It doesn't go into details of whats happened to cause this effect which just makes it better. For me this has to be the top of the list without question and by far the best of the Mad Max series.

Dawn of the Dead Report Abuse

Comments:
it takes approximately 6 hours for rigor mortise to set in, in the human body. so running zombies are way more realistic than immediately rotten shamblers. if only romero applied that realism to the movie then it would have been perfection. fresh=run, rotten= slow oh well, i'd prefer the intensity of the runners over any other kind of zombie!

rigor mortis would not allow a zombie to RUN at you, their flesh is decompoing already as is, so im pretty sure if they were to start running, the force of doing so would literally make them fall apart :)

Haha! Zombies are a metaphor for consumerism - maybe if you want to over analyse everything, and find 'hidden meanings' then YES! But actually when I watch zombie films I am not thinking about Thatcherism, consumerism, the free market and globalization (I actually do THAT at University) I am thinking of the apocalypse and flesh eating and SH*T RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! Why do some people have to 'delve into the meaning and concept' of films? Just sit back and enjoy the hordes of undead! (Rant over!) I like this film, but I do think it looses a little of it's momentum at around half-way through. (The newer version) I have only seen Romero's once so would not really like to comment - I did used to adore his work but have come to question myself since his newer films ( Diary Of The Dead being one of the worst zombie films I have ever seen, mainly due to the god awful acting - so maybe I am being a little quick to discount Romero entirely) And I definitely think fast zombies are scarier! Worth a watch for any post-apoc fans! Kelly :)

Ha! Rigor Mortis happens to the dead the dead also do not get up and stumble around. That's just comical. These creatures are the undead. Therefore normal death rules do not apply.
Added 3 years ago by guest, 3 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
The reasons why I can't take fast zombies serious is the fact that rigor mortis would not allow it which was what created the classic shambled example. If they are running with fluid joint movement, they're not zombies, they're just used to hold the attention of the 'go go' kids which seems to be proven based on the comments.

Whoever thinks that the remake is bad needs to give their head a shake. Yeah, sure, everyone loves the original. But the new one is about a billion times better. So stop jumping on the "original is better" bandwagon, because it isn't.

Right. But you're missing the point of zombies. They're not there to chase you; they're there to slowly drain your will to carry on living. It's like what Quentin Tarantino said about King Kong: if it's not a metaphor for white man's fear of the black man, then it's just a movie about a giant gorilla. The same goes for zombies: if they're not a metaphor for mindless conformity or, as with Dawn of the Dead, consumerism, then they're just undead humans who eat living humans.

I like zombie movies and when I heart that this one is funny i immediatly watched it. Unfortunately in my opinion the movie ist not as great as many people described it. Okay it has its funny moments but the longer the movie lasts, the less there are and in the end it gets extremly cheesy and hollywood standard. I don't like it but watch for yourself and decide.

And just why can't there be fun times in the apocalypse? For one, this zombie movie (because there are zombies in it, duh) has some of the best advice for surviving any post apocalyptic world over ran by humans turned flesh eating monsters. Cardio, double tap, and enjoy the little things in life. Let's not forget the reality TV angle, best zombie kill of the week. As long as you have reproductive capabilities, the ability to re kill zombies, why wouldn't survivors have a good time? And ammo concerns? come on, this is America, raid any republican redneck house and your ammo and gun needs are covered.

This was a zombie movie that bait and switched it into a traveling buddy movie, with a touch of zombies so they could call it a zombie movie. Bill Murray was probably the only real good part. It ticked me off with the bait and switch.

spoiler alert- again people commenting on parts of the film so if you like surprises careful when you read the comments. I have to laugh when people make comments trying to rationalise human behaviour in what is clearly a zombie comedy movie..shiiish. People do crazy sh!te now and there are no zombies but loads of cctv and police. I thought it was funny but different strokes etc. IMHO you'll enjoy it more if you don't over think it and take it for what it is - satirical horror

This movie was kinda stupid, which is too bad because I like Woody Harrelson. I see the comments where I was supposed to thing it was hilarious, but to be honest, I didn't really find it that funny. And why would you trash a store other survivors might need to get supplies from, or randomly fire off your weapon's dwindling ammo into the air? What a piece of crap. Oh, yeah, and Jesse Eisenberg is in it... doesn't help.

This is one of those movies that a true fan of zombie movies, and someone who hates them, can agree on to watch. It is a comedy, and very well done! For someone like me, who is terrified by zombies, ( thanks to my father making me watch them when i was 5 years old back in the early 80s ), this movie still scared me a bit, but the humor made it enjoyable.

For the most part, I think they've gotten totally carried away (to the point of stupidity) with the entire Zombie post apocalyptic sub-genre. Most of these movies are total garbage, but every once in a while something special comes along that can totally surprise me. Yeah, Zombieland is pretty unoriginal, dealing with the same ole same ole subject matter. Damnit though, It's funny as hell! I LoL'ed all the way through it. If a movie can do that, despite it's flaws, then, in the end, that's all that really matters.

Escape from New York Report Abuse
Dark and depressing, this story is set on the prison island of New York after the apocalypse destroys the country and turns whats left into a fascist regime. Not a pretty picture of the harsh life after civilization, but it did give us one of the greatest badass anti-heroes in film history with Snake Pliskin.

This is my favourite movie of all time but this isn't an apocolyptic film since there hasnt been any mass desruction or loss of life and there is still a government in place. This is a dystopian film where crime has risen over 400 percent and Manhatten Island has become a maximum security prison. An Apocolypse hasnt occured here, amazing film though

Both the original and the remake are good. The original being a classic George A. Romero movie, the king of zombies! But the remake did have a lot going for it to be honest. It did justice to the idea of zombies, I know a lot of people dislike the whole running zombie situation but I don't think the tension and story could have gone as well if they were still the classic slow moving zombies. This film makes one zombie an extreme hazard, let alone the huge crowd outside the Mall they take shelter in!!!

the remake is awful because it was just a complete ripoff of 28 days later that had come out a couple of years earlier (only the infected were coming back to life, not the dead; they weren't eating people but just thrashing at them; their movements, the cinematography and their movements were ALL just takend from it), and had virtually nothing to do with the original movie or any romero film. the only reason it was called dawn of the dead is because if you had called it anything else everyone would have just gone, hey this is just a ripoff of 28 days later... call it a remake and suddenly it's a work of genius!?!

I will watch any zombie movie, and I did really like this one. However, the first (1978) was mind blowing and unbeatable.

I liked this movie as a kid and as a grown up my opinion really hasnt changed. its a crappy movie yes but its still a fun one. and if all else fails the neat little gadgets you see throughout the movie really kick butt. right?

i don't understand how people can say this is a terrible movie. This movie is incredibly unique because it attempts post apocalyptia on the water. Kevin Costner is obviously a babe and though his acting in this movie was mediocre he did a pretty damn fine job at being a mutant. As for the concept of the gills i though it was cool that he mutated and it is just as realistic as zombies taking over the world.

it is postapocalyptic on water (wich is unique as far as i know) and it got a cool tripple hull sailboat in it. the rest is mediocre and quite unrealistic..(gills the size of a trout to sustain oxygen need for two full grown adult humans, need i say more?)

Great series, I've watched the entire couple of year run twice and still enjoy seeing it. It's obvious why it failed on network TV, it was too good :-) It would be great to see a re-boot or a feature length movie... Excellent plot if you are into post apocalypse scenarios..

Stalker Report Abuse
Stalker (Russian: Сталкер) is a 1979 film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, with a screenplay written by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky, loosely based on their novel Roadside Picnic. It depicts an expedition led by the Stalker (guide) to bring his two clients to a site known as the Zone, which has the supposed potential to fulfil a person's innermost desires. Classic, cult, absolutely stunning pictures and mood

Yes, I remember this movie. When I played the video game S.t.a.l.k.e.r. , I was looking for some post apokalyptic movies and stumbled upon it. It's not an action movie, but rather a artistic aproach in philosophy, especially the combination of black and white in the real world and color in the zone (if I remember it right) and an astonishing ending, but I won't spoil anything. The most amazing thing about the movie "Stalker", it has a zone like pripyat, chernobyl today, but was made before the nuclear incident. Like a prediction. The movie is based on the book road picknick? I don't remember if I got all the facts right, but the movie is truly worth watching!

You must have an extremely limited library of movies if you can't appreciate a time when story and cinematography took a front seat as opposed to explosions and more explosions. This is why remakes are such a big thing which, in most cases, cheapens the original title...

Look, the Matrix is definitely one of the greatest sci-fi, post-apocalyptic movies ever made. Please just deal with that. From an art, philosophy, religion or action perspective ... you gotta be blind not to at least understand part of this movie. And the rest of the matrix movies only improve on the story line by further collapsing dogmatic viewpoints in the previous films ... and paralleling that with real life. Pretty dang amazing actually.

I qualify this movie as mediocre and inoffensive, at best. It is not inspired at all, nor is it an appalling blunder. It is stuck in that useless place between that provides very little amusement at all. It's just more stoic lone-wolf hero crap where the bottom-line question is who can shoot, stab and blow things up better. As a side note, this movie shares its name with another that IS a truly worthwhile film..."IL POSTINO" (The Postman). It's not of the same genre at all, but at least it might actually move you.

I saw this when it came out, and thought it was good. I watched it again the other day, and realised it was very very very good. I don't know why this movie wasn't big. The sci-fi channel here in the UK did a decent job of promoting it, otherwise, I wouldn't have heard of it. I just hate how Christian Bale's does his American accents - they always sound way too over-exaggerated! I knew he wasn't American the moment he opened his mouth. Btw, to the 2nd person who commented about Christian Bale's acting skill - you and everyone else for that matter, should watch Empire of the Sun. I think it's his first movie, but his acting,(and everyone else's), is amazing - it is a great movie, but very depressing.

You can't discuss post-apoc without mentioning Charleton Heston, one of my favorite actors, and this movie. Love Will Smith, but he was no Robert Neville. I was disappointed he didn't make it, but the powerful visual image of the final scene and the survivors getting the serum was very uplifting, whereas the W.S. ending was rather anti-climactic.

Carriers Report Abuse
One of my favorite movies. A deadly virus has killed most of the United States population. A handful of survivors try to make it to a safe place to wait out the plague. The plot's a little old, but this film was EXTREMELY well executed. The acting is PHENOMENAL, the cinematography good, the artistic symbolism brilliant, and the tone bleak. This is neither a thriller or an action flick (though it does have a few scenes that are meant to be thrilling), it is a drama, (No matter what the studio marketed it as), so be prepared for one or two dry scenes. Overall, it's definitely worth a look.

"...the movie's strongest point is showing how these stereotypes (which basically is how 90% of americans actually are)" That, boy genius, is a stereotype itself. Don't worry, though; I won't take that to mean that ALL foreigners are retarded. I'm sure it's just you, and a few others. Enjoy your third world.

Point about them being stereotypes, the movie's strongest point is showing how these stereotypes (which basically is how 90% of americans actually are) behave in the wake of the crisis, that's where the chill comes from. That's what makes it chilling.

This is a pure post-apocalyptic movie, from an ultra-realistic angle. There are no zombies. Repeat: There are no zombies. If you know that going in and you don't expect it to be a zombie movie, you'll have an awesome time. This movie is about four people trying to get to a safe place after a virus has wiped out most of the earth's population. It's about the messed-up decisions they have to make, the painful actions they have to take to survive, and the always-constant threat of infection. And believe me...it's terrifying because it seems so real. This is a top-notch post-apocalyptic movie and should be watched by any fan of the genre.

I bailed out on this movie about half of the way through. All of the characters are little more than shallow cultural stereotypes, and I found myself not caring a bit whether all of them died or not. The only thing that brings tension to this film is the nagging frustration, as a viewer, with the constant barrage of stupid impulsive decisions that lead to unnecessary and uninteresting moments of crisis. It's quite a stretch to believe that this group of idiots managed to survive long enough to even be around for the beginning of the story. This is a very poor movie indeed, intended for a non-thinking audience. Don't waste your time.

Threads Report Abuse
'Threads' was made by the BBC in 1983 and depicts the effects of a nuclear war and its aftermath on the United Kingdom. The premise of Threads was to hypothesise the effects of a nuclear war on the United Kingdom after an exchange between the Soviet Union and the United States escalates to include the UK. Both the plot and the atmosphere of the film are extremely bleak.

I saw this film in the 80s, scared me to death. The last scene was somewhat ruined with the girl screaming in childbirth displaying a mouth full of amalgam fillings.... where did they come from...

totally stark, realistic & terrifying. Hard to remember how scary the threat of nuclear annihilation was, even here in Australia. Watching Threads again reminds me. Horribly brilliant film.

I was at School in England in the 80s when this came out. It was something they made us watch in Science class of all subjects and left us all pretty sure that we never wanted a nuclear war. Absolutely perfect post apoc film due to it's brute honesty and the fact it is not crippled by the need to have a flowerly drama or dreamy protagonist to save the day. In a nuclear war, we are all just melted flesh.

Agree with all the comments on here in regard to best movie in this genre. I think I saw this when I was around 12 or 13 and it terrified me. Watched it again a couple of years ago and it still terrified me. I would go as far as saying one of the best movies ever made.

I watched this after the recommendations. Watched it in parts mainly because it is so bleak couln't handle it in one go. As someone said above, everyone in a position of power should watch it. There is absolutely no relief and the fact that it is low budget makes it feel even more close to home. It has been on my mind ever since. Also its free to be watched on youtube!

I saw this movie when I was about 5 or 6 years old and it screwed me up for years. It was on tv on day when I was with a babysitter who didn't care what we watched. I someone got from it that the world would end if people did not pay their electric bills on time and since we were poor, I was sure that the world would end soon. Haunting, to say the least.

In this day and age, with all the political tensions between countries, this movie should scare the crap out of anyone who watches it. It's been at least 20yrs since I've seen it, but it made enough of an impression for me to not want to see it again. Don't expect to feel good after watching this one...but if you do watch it, at least you'll have an inkling of what to expect in the event that this type of catastrophe ever occurs.

this movie had an emotional effect that i have never felt for any movie. the way Charleton Heston portrayed his utter joy in the simplest of things and the old man who was heartbroken at what his world had degraded into made me thankful for many of the things i have today. this movie will make you cry the first time you see it....
