In the novel, it ultimately ends with the zombies being killed by the UN, which is now a large military, and the world slowly recovering from all of the chaos. In the film, however, a vaccine is released to keep humans safe from the zombies, but in the end, they are only just getting ready to actually battle the zombies and get rid of them once and for all. The overall difference in the film worked to tell a similar story, although the only things that we remotely similar among both the film and the novel was the mention of zombies. I think that making the film just a full on action movie instead of attempting to add action to the already existing novel made it more enjoyable to watch. Instead of being the documentary like film that it would have been, (had the writers and producers stuck to the original story) they decided to turn it into an action movie.
