The Girl With All the Gifts Reviews

October 16, 2017
With its dystopian setting housing superhuman teens and zombies, The Girl With All the Gifts seems like a movie generated by a Young Adult Entertainment algorithm.

Very confusing and absurd. One of the worst zombie films. [Full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2017
The Girl with All the Gifts starts off with quite a lot of potential in its first act, but unfortunately the story is taken in a clichéd, bland, and rather silly direction that results in an ultimately unsatisfying and quickly forgettable zombie outing.

Shows like The Walking Dead reign over The Girl With All The Gifts because the breakdown of society, how people fully function within it is the core of the story.

Like Melanie, The Girl With All the Gifts is neither dead nor alive but somewhere in between.
February 24, 2017
The Girl with All the Gifts has ambitions to shake some genre norms up, but by favoring indulgence over patience, it's derivative in all the wrong ways.

If you're not a fan of flesh-eater flicks by now, you surely won't be after seeing The Girl With All the Gifts.

The film wants to have its flesh and eat it too, but even more damning is how little meat is on its bones to begin with.

The british film is a new approach to the undead, but its initially interesting premise lasts only half hour. [Full review in Spanish]
September 25, 2016
The picture's scale and production design is to be applauded but ultimately it is an unsatisfying hybrid itself - neither tense action-thriller nor compelling moral drama.
September 23, 2016
Director Colm McCarthy hasn't generated enough filmic propulsion to lift it out of the deep wheel-ruts left by its numerous antecedents.
September 23, 2016
Aspires to greatness by pushing its social concerns and big ideas up front for all to see. But the film falls far short thanks to some pretty ropey writing, undistinguished direction and variable performances.
September 22, 2016
There are some startling and eerie moments in this YA-style horror thriller, adapted by Mike Carey from his 2014 bestseller - but some uncomfortable zombie cliches and uneven performances.
September 22, 2016
As directed by Colm McCarthy, it is dully and ploddingly told, without imagination, suspense, tension, or any sense of mounting dread.
September 8, 2016
Few outside teen audiences will think Mike Carey's adaptation of his own novel is anything more than another tired attempt to board the zombie bandwagon.
August 3, 2016
Except for Close, a bit of a poisoned apple.
August 3, 2016
Without the narrative or formal conviction to pull off the clichés rampant throughout, it sadly seems stuck between two worlds.
