Generous with 3 stars,
This review is from: The Children [DVD] (DVD)I would urge you not to take much notice of the glowing reviews for this mediocre Horror. You will be most disappointed in believing the hype! Yes the subject matter is disturbing and there are some quite good moments in the film that is mercifully short. The premise of unknown viruses turning humans into something a bit nasty is a tried and tested genre and the only difference here is that it's the kids who are infected. There are a couple of glaring holes in the plot but in the interest of not putting a spoiler in here will not expand. It's all a bit pedestrian and predictable and could have been much better. I think I am being generous with 3 stars!

No I think 3 stars is about right. As you say there are some plot holes but I thought the acting was very good and as a whole the film was entertaining. But it's certainly not a masterpiece of horror.
Apart from that I agree with your review Chris.
