It's a big day in America - it is Peace Day and a device is being detonated which will render all nuclear weapons ineffective. Most people just go about their business, unconcerned about this event, until the device explodes and the fallout is that humans who are exposed are turned into zombies. Those that remain face the challenge of survival.
This is another zombie horror film but it is a notch above many others on offer. To start with, there are a number of well known actors who, although not stretched here, put in a reasonable performance. The story, while hardly original is well told and paced and draws in a number of sub plots along the way instead of following just one group of people. It also helps that the reason for the zombie outbreak is explained, something which seems obvious but is so often dismissed by filmmakers.
For those that like zombie kills there should be enough blood to satisfy, along with the standard of zombies feeding on the uninfected and as things progress, other zombies.
