I enjoyed the book this was based off of for the most part, but this movie really didn’t do the mediocre book justice. There were several points in the movie in which I had legitimate sympathy for an organization literally named “wicked”, they seemed to be the only people in the entire story that were sincerely trying to save the majority of humanity from the scourge of a horrifying plague. This was a pretty film with some well done set pieces, the final battles on the streets were particularly impressive, but the plot execution just didn’t impress me in the least.
There’s only one more book in the series that they could adapt and that’s a prequel with none of the current characters, though I’m sure if they do that story they’ll be able to shoehorn them in somehow, ala The Hobbit.
As a side note, this was the third film that I’ve seen with my MoviePass subscription, which is going well enough.
