Media Consumption Log: Flight of the Living Dead (Zombies on a Plan)

I tend to dislike zombie movies that lack some reasonable explanation for zombie --- if an explanation is offered.  I am cool with inexplicable zombies, but I am uncool with "mysterious gas has zombie virus developed by US military" zombies.

So this movie starts with one strike.

Strike two, no one is likeable.  That may be life for some people, but not yet for me, so strike two.

Strike three, I am sure that the tissue paper that constitutes most of the material in a plane would have ruptured a thousand times before the movie was half over.

So what is there to like about this movie?  Implausible mythology, implausible setting, and distasteful characters.  Yeuch.
