There was a monster apocalypse and now people live underground in colonies, only venturing out for emergencies. Joel (Dylan O’Brien) is in regular contact with his girlfriend since before the disaster. But, with all of the young people in his colony paired off, he can stand it no more. He’s a coward, but he sets out to find her and start a new life. He finds a dog, a little girl and an older man, and his courage. Aw. Heartwarming.
It’s a great film, a lot of fun. It feels an awful lot like Zombieland, with a similar sense of road trip in disaster times, but it works. And some of the monsters are just adorable!
