Here our hero finds himself thrust into a global pandemic so rampant that it seems beyond comprehension—and so it remains, of course, for the viewer, fixed to one man’s necessarily limited perspective and denied the illumination of a broader view. Ex-position stutters; action is jagged and elliptical; the film forsakes the luxury of repose… That it never quite coheres seems to be the point.

Why the 3-star rating? Because the film delivers. It’s consistently not-great, yet it’s entertaining; I watched it with a packed house, and everyone seemed to have a good time.

It’s essentially a George A Romero film played out over a grand canvas in which the winners are educated, white and bourgeois, and the losers are ethnic minorities, the poor and the elderly. The action is intense and executed with a panache and logic not yet seen in Forster’s back catalogue.
