Minor spoilers may follow,
This movie had few high points to offset what was overall a somewhat lackluster outing for a zombie flick.
The story follows Rob Freeman's character (Lt. Brian Murphy), who after surviving a plane crash off the coast of Africa, must make his way across the African landscape, in an attempt to find a way out. On his journey he meets up with Prince David Oseia's character (Sgt. Daniel Dembele) who is on a mission of his own; to find his son.
The movie's premise, although very promising, fails to deliver. The movie does a good job setting up the atmosphere of the situation, but pacing issues, as well as a few dead zones tend to cause it to drag on a bit.
The 2 lead stars of the movie Rob Freeman and Prince David Oseia are likable enough characters, each with their own quest ahead of them. However, sub-par acting from both cause a few cringe inducing moments that make it hard to really buy into their characters plight.
The true stars of the movie are the Zombies. They have done a truly wonderful job retaining the Romero"esque" features of the zombies. The makeup and movement of the zombies are very traditional and one of the few highlights of the movie.
The setting, although beautiful, does not really add to the overall ambiance. Finally, the story, although very traditional in the zombie movie landscape does not offer anything new, exciting or even unique to the genre.
Final verdict, my review on this movie is based on "my" overall experience with the movie, which in no way means the movie will and has not been enjoyed by many others. If you are looking for a different zombie movie, then perhaps give it a try. However, if you are not completely into this genre then perhaps skip this one.

Lieutenant Brian Murphy, is the sole survivor of the final plane out of Africa, which crashes somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The night before, a zombie horde attacked many villages in that area. Brian gathers supplies from the plane crash and travels by foot until he finds and fixes a broken-down truck in a village. When driving, the truck gets stuck in a pothole as zombies get closer. Daniel Dembele, a local African soldier gone AWOL in search of his son, rescues Brian from certain death. Daniel's wife had been killed in a zombie attack the previous night and a local military unit, heading north to a military base, had rescued his son. Daniel agrees to lead Brian to the nearest airport, a day's drive away, in exchange for his truck upon arrival for Daniel to use to find his son. At the airport, Brian attempts radioing for help using the air traffic tower's radio, but he receives no response. Daniel gets fuel for the truck and the two agree it would be best to stick together ...
