The Girl With All the Gifts Reviews

March 1, 2017
Like Melanie, The Girl With All the Gifts is neither dead nor alive but somewhere in between.
February 25, 2017
Might be the most inadvertently appropriate analog to life in 2017's increasingly unstable world.

Just when you thought the zombie genre was out of ideas, along comes Colm McCarthy's smart and engaging The Girl with All the Gifts, a film with echoes of George A. Romero, Danny Boyle, and Robert Kirkman.
February 24, 2017
A wicked, gory and even occasionally funny take on George A. Romero.
February 24, 2017
It's all fairly interesting if less than captivating, driven mostly by Nanua's bright performance.
February 23, 2017
It's a film for people who thought they never needed to sit through another zombie flick. It's also quite likely the strangest entry that will ever appear on Glenn Close's IMDB page.

"The Girl With All the Gifts" doesn't really venture into new territory, but it does a decent job of reminding us why zombies are so scary, and so interesting.
February 23, 2017
It's got some future-world smarts that sporadically elevate it above the junk that dominates this genre, and they help carry it through the routine spatter-and-gore moments and sci-fi clichés.

The real draw here is the young people. Who, probably not coincidentally, are the ones who will enjoy The Girl With All The Gifts the most.
February 22, 2017
An effective and surprisingly intelligent exercise in sustained horror.
September 25, 2016
This is a gory love story. It's a real gift.
September 23, 2016
Working in a genre that has recently hit bottom with dreary parody and vacant spectacle, the director Colm McCarthy and his team have managed to wrangle if not quite a complete reinvention, then something vivid and startling in its own right.
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 21, 2016
A genre film that favours characterisation and morality over mayhem (but gets the mayhem right too).
September 21, 2016
Some good stuff in here, but it never really gets better than good.
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.

Except for Close, a bit of a poisoned apple.
