Blu-ray Review: The Girl With All the Gifts

April 25, 2017

By John Corrado

With human civilization having been all but destroyed by a zombie virus, Melanie (Sennia Nanua) is a young girl who represents the next evolution of the disease and is being kept locked up so that her organs can be harvested to create a cure.  But when their safe military compound comes under attack, Melanie ends up going on the run, and starts to figure out her true place in this evolving world.

For a zombie film that has humanistic overtones, The Girl With All the Gifts is a well made genre flick that has enough suspense and interesting ideas to keep us watching.  Sennia Nanua carries it with impressive maturity, backed up by fine supporting turns from Gemma Arterton as a sympathetic teacher, Glenn Close as a scientist and Paddy Considine as a sergeant.  You can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes no bonus features, but comes with a regular DVD of the film and a digital copy.

The Girl With All the Gifts is an Elevation Pictures release.  It’s 111 minutes and rated 14A.
