Yeesh. The Girl With All The Gifts is the most disgusting apocalypse yet and an over-convoluted way to say zombies.
Basically, humanity has been destroyed by a mutated fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns them into flesh-eating “hungries.” Only a small group of children are immune. These group of kids are subjected to cruel experiments and are schooled in isolation. Except Melanie who stands out from them all and could be the answer
Starring Paddy Considine, Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton, the film has smatterings of 28 Days Later verses The Hunger Games (heck, even the music sounds oddly similar.) There is something of a resonance here that is intriguing but can the movie and concept pull away from films that have come before it?
THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS WILL BE COMING SOON.
