Don't read this post if you have not seen the movie.

Did they really need to do the zombies in CG? It was like I was watching The Mummy, and there was really no point for it. Also no explanation of how they had super-human strength for no apparent reason. I know plenty of 200+ pound people, who, if running full speed into the side of an SUV, would barely even rock it, much less flip it over

That was the point of the butterfly thing. Anna had been telling him how God had told her his plan, and that the world was so quiet now that you could hear if you just listened. It was right then that Neville realized that all of what happened was planned and he knew what he was supposed to do.

For the zombies being in CG, yea they had to do it. They tried filming it with 40 Zombie extras, but they had to film in the winter and at night. Most of them only wearing a pair of jeans, it was very difficult to make it look like they were mindless zombies. They didn't run at full speed, and were watching where they were stepping, and shivering a lot.

The biggest twist though, was that Neville's son was actually a girl! Ha, who saw that comming?!
