Movie Review: The Returned

IMDB Storyline: In a world where a deadly zombie virus has infected mankind, a single cure has been found. The cure, a treatment called the "Return Protein" which stays the effects of the virus in its host. With injections every 36 hours, the "Returned" are able to live as though they were never bit, despite the virus still coursing through their veins. When it is discovered that the protein stock is running low, chaos hits the streets. Returned who run out of the protein turn to zombies and wreak havoc, protesters turn to murderers as they try to rid the streets of the returned, and right in the middle of it all are Alex (Kris Holden-Ried) and Kate (Emily Hampshire). Kate a leading doctor in the field of zombie virus' and Alex a musician with a dark secret, he is a Returned. As death and fear run rampant, Alex's secret becomes known and his dosage runs low, he and Kate must fight for a chance to live before he becomes a zombie. 

My Thoughts: I was randomly scrolling through Neflix and came across this movie. I figured I would try it out. If you love crazy killing Zombie movies then this movie is not for you. There are hardly any zombies in it. This movie really deals with what happens after and how human always seem to turn on those that are ill or different. It truly makes you think about the human race and what will be our eventual downfall. I do not think it will be an epidemic but rather how we deal with it. 

I enjoyed the twists of the movie and seeing how each character made choices that led to the end of the movie. Great ending in my opinion. Check the movie out and share your thoughts in the comments.
