2012 Zombie Apocalypse is a good if generic zombie movie. The success of this kind of movie resides in the quality and quantity of slicing, dicing, decapitating, dismembering, goring, disemboweling, amputating, detruncating, beheading, rending, and severing of the zombies. This zombie DVD delivers.
Originally aired on SyFy, Zombie Apocalypse is the story of a band of strangers getting together and making their way to a rumored safe zone after a virus turned 90 percent of the population into zombies.
Ramona, Julian, and Kevin are crossing the United States on their way to Catalina Island which is rumored to be a safe zone. They are attacked by zombies and saved by Cassie, Henry (Ving Rhames), and Mack (a Ben Affleck lookalike). They hook up and continue killing zombies as their go on their way.
The group eventually hooks up with a third group as they get closer to California. Unfortunately, the zombies are getting smarter so staying alive is becoming more difficult.
There are a couple of minor plot points like the shopping cart bit that you should not question too much.
The TV movie budget does show through a couple of times but not in any way that hampers enjoying 2012 Zombie Apocalypse
