Passed and how. It was FILLED with women, talking to each other about all kinds of stuff, and generally being awesome.

I actually wasn't really looking forward to it; a friend wanted to see it, so I went along. Oh, but it was great. Four named female characters, including the protagonist and her sidekick, and they got the vast majority of the badass fight scenes and moves.

I will say I was amused at the prevalence of tweezers and waterproof mascara in the zombie apocalypse, but I was pleasantly surprised when the protagonist actually got dirty.

It was also a pretty good movie, although the final scene was ludicrous. The story was decent, it ratcheted up the tension well, and the fight scenes were beautifully shot. (Maybe a little too much bullet-time, but I can't see 3D so it may be better for people who can.) I really recommend this for people who like women-focused action movies.
