An unusual film.

Someone from anthropologists wrote that all our suffering-throwing reflections of about violence and its denial are the reflection of the duality of human nature — we initially and not predators and not herbivores, but and both. Hatred of violence, rejection of violence, rejecting violence as lifestyle and, finally, non-resistance to evil by violence as the Christian principle — is us, figuratively speaking, from cows and sheep. Accordingly, the propensity to violence, sadism, aggression, Nietzscheanism — is us wolves and tigers. Each of the us wolf sheep, each of our ratio of wolf and sheep.

The feature film in that Melanie — well, certainly not sheep no cow! No half an inch. She — a Predator. A predator with a capital letter: in every movement, in every glance, in every word. At least, it should be the story. Senna of Nanoa, of course, very trying, but it still an ordinary human girl, fragile and delicate. But the idea of the film is — Melanie = Predator. New people, if you will, although not obvious whether to take it to the kind people. For Melanie violence course as respiration, violence Melanie is not invokes internal exclusion, it is not afraid to kill, she is not afraid of death — neither his nor an alien. What fun — Melanie on the plot is clearly gregarious predator, and a tiger is a loner.

The filmmakers are trying to construct the human psyche, initially free of many of the "weaknesses" of modern humanity, which, perhaps, led to the accident, the consequences of which we are seeing on the screen. About the deep-seated causes of the Apocalypse in the frame is not directly said, but thought about the inferiority of the "normal" person and the rules of civilization death literally hovers in the air. Melanie — this update is error correction, it's victory of will and mind over weakness, duplicity, lies, over "pale infirmity" man of the "old" type.

In fact it is a rather hackneyed subject. The theme of the future ruthlessly and inhuman deals with in the past, but which has its deep truth. The film — one more conversation on the topic. Moreover, the authors prefer such a future: when Melanie is faced with a choice — to sacrifice for the "old" person or to devote himself to the creation of a "new" person — it with the authors select the "predatory" future. And not because she despises their former torturers and jailers or afraid of death — not at all. She makes first of all a rational choice.

Incidentally, I myself do not sure Melanie made the right choice. Not fact that the wolf's gut is the key to survival and progress. But wasn't in it. The movie in a fascinating way to pose the right questions and gives controversial answers, and thanks to him already this.

Intelligent zombies! Smart, Carl.

Girl with all people, New era Z, as it was woven from us, is one of THOSE movies of zombies, which has long been grew up a whole army of fans.

The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. The people here turned into a zombie the consequence of the defeat of some spores that cause people to attack all around to infect, and after to lose together and let the shoots on which formed boxes with new spores. The idea is very similar to the breeding cycle of the fungus "Cordyceps sinensis one-sided", which is the same way is parasitic on the ants, only those do not bite fellow, turning in his own kind. However, the zombie in this film is quite secondary.

Our attention is the children of those zombies who somehow managed to enter in symbiosis with this plant and became endowed with considerable intelligence. However, they all as obsessed with lust for meat and blood, and therefore keep them in a special bunker. Over them experiment and going to make a vaccine that needs to save the world.

With them has been one of scientists the name of Helen. It for some reason not considers them to be dangerous, but rather showing sympathy, because they all the outward signs are small children. On base attack infected and survivors have to evacuate. And from that moment, what was shot this movie.

Helen, in contrast the other almost in a motherly way, enamoured of the main character of the film. The girl zombie, Melanie, is the last hope for the salvation of the whole human race, but Helen all the forces of protest against the wishes of Dr. Caldwell to euthanize test subjects and take priceless samples for vaccine preparation. After all, for these purposes, I was brought to the bunker. Helen and Caldwell are opposites of each other. Dr. Caldwell — professional, scientist, ready to go to make any sacrifice for a higher purpose, it puts the mind above all the senses. Helen — emotional, not able to think rationally, her blind the feelings that prevent her to see the true picture of what is happening.

The film vividly demonstrates the problem of modern society: tolerance and more specifically its perverted form. The heroes of the film are in a situation bordering the complete disappearance of mankind. The last embers of the human resistance faded out under tread all-consuming wave of the dead. But among a small group of survivors, in whose hands the key to the salvation of the world, is Helene. She is ready to put under treat and all, if only no harm Melanie. Helen must be a professional, because it — the scientist who fights for the salvation of the world, but instead violates all possible security protocols spits on common sense and dooms the world to death. Just because she wants the death of Melanie, which is still in the beginning of the movie have killed her eyes few people, and further not once demonstrated it is dangerous that it is NOT people.

I think that the premise of the film in that feelings are not should Eclipse the reality, not going over the face of common sense. The film tries us say that it's time to remove the rose-colored glasses and see the world it is clear that we do not need to be Helen, who realized too late his mistake, but this change it is was not to.

The movie makes you think about serious things (if I understand correctly the message of the painting), but me how the fan of "classic" films about cars, it seemed boring and uninteresting.

To sum up.

For the meaning of the: 9 10

For zombies: 1 10

"Y-Yes" — it attitudinal stuck with me head has just started the final credits of this film. It should say once that I am a huge fan of the movies zombies and seeing the recommendations from one movie portals smart TV suddenly the film in 2016, "a New era of Z", my brain immediately gave the analogy of the spectacular Steven Spielberg film — "world War Z". A very good reason. Perhaps, as time to I bought as still to an incredibly high rating for similar picture in IMDb. On the Russian marketers just unnecessarily tying your film to the genius of Spielberg

Briefly about the plot: the military base on which is trying to crowd together in the remaining surviving soldiers, scientists, and their research — 12-year-old children who were born with the beginning of the infection, which the analogy with the Schrodinger's cat, simultaneously people zombie. As again thanks to the successful study of their body it is possible to bring the vaccine that will be able to save humanity from impending doom.

The plot: Melanie — one special children, Helen — amazingly incoherent and stupid girl, but also instructor, Sergeant parks, that campaign just stole a military uniform and builds himself a soldier, and Dr. Caldwell — according to all, the only sane person left.

Now, about the interesting moments of this terrific Kina.

The film begins with that the hordes of zombies surrounded a military base and unexpectedly break through the six-foot fencing and break into territory. What? You know that there are zombies everywhere, not able Ostrow for 12 years a normal fence?

Further, in the General confusion of what is happening to Melanie the eyes of his teacher Helen cuts the throats of two soldiers, trying to otstrelivaetsya from hungry (why do you them as called? In what's the catch?), and then falls without consciousness. Time podozrevaet armored van, which takes the battlefield just all characters, forgetting all the rest. Helen carefully protects and making on the hands of his pupil, which is covered in blood after his dinner. Here starts the hero's journey to place the nearest base with real people — London.

Dr. Caldwell several times throughout the film is trying to reach of reason, who had left Helen, and say that Melanie — the object of study and path to save mankind, what you need to kill for the sake of vaccines, for which suffers in his address insults to the inhumanity of Helen and once does gets schscham. What the hell?!

Let's move on. In a city teeming with zombies, Melanie no finds two healthy dogs, wagging its tail as neither what is not used after 12 years after the beginning of the Apocalypse. It like at all?

The ending of the film is truly brilliant. After viewing this painting at left me with two issue. First, what? For so treated adequate spectator the Director of this picture is Colm McCarthy, who decided to experiment unsuccessfully with a great movie after work on several cool TV shows (e.g. Sherlock or Doctor Who). Secondly, who these people who write positive review to the film and put him a high score. Who???

This movie pushed me to to write my first review on website for the last 3 years. To unfortunately, the impenetrable stupidity of the film is not let me to fully enjoy the beautiful landscape of empty cities, because my constant shame made it impossible to see the screen.

Terrible soundtrack, the weakest performance of actors and hopeless stupidity of the Director of this picture is not let me give it high point
