All of Us Are Dead on Reviews
The show has received not-so-great reviews from critics. Here are a few things people said about it.
Pierce Conran of South China Morning Post writes, “Korean zombie mythmaking has been inextricably – and often thrillingly – tied to social commentary, but while All of Us Are Dead gladly continues that pop culture relay race, the people carrying the baton seem to be part of the problem rather than the ones who should be trusted to talk about it.”
“By repeatedly and earnestly holding space for both major and minor characters to demonstrate their humanity, All of Us Are Dead distinguishes its focus. This, combined with the drama-filled high school setting, helps the show carve out its own space in the crowded zombie pantheon. At the same time, it recalls the hallowed battle song that all great tales and stories possess: that we all inhabit both light and dark, good and bad, and that even in the direst of circumstances, we have the ability — and responsibility — to act in the interests of others,” writes The Verge‘s Sara Merican.
