Movie Review – The Girl with All the Gifts


Movie Blurb:

A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.

My Review:



Interesting dystopian characters with a lot to lose.



Well executed, fast-paced, and fun.



Each scene flowed well into the next. No complaints.

Overall Impression

This book has been on my TBR for some time, and ironically I ended up watching the movie first when my roomie and I were bored one night. I’d never known this was a movie, so I was desperate to give it a chance. I was not disappointed!

This film is set in a dystopian world where the dead have risen. At a government facility, humans use special zombie-human children with intelligence to try to cure the disease. But when the zombies from the outside break into the facility, everyone scatters, desperate for survival.

This was a fun movie! All of the human characters I sympathized with, and I especially enjoyed the main character and the other zombie-human children. They were not your average zombie and really switched the genre up a bit. The action was almost nonstop, and even in the pauses there were constant interesting developments.

Ultimately a great watch, and after watching I still intend on reading the book. Can’t wait to compare the two!
