Grinding My Gears
Couldn't have been worse if they put Vin Diesel in it!
The only thing this movie shared with the book, other than the title, was a few character names. Other than that, it was pretty weak.
Was extremely disappointed by the choice to use fast "zombies". I use the term "zombie" loosely, as the creatures bit-and-ran rather than consume their victims. The speed and immediacy of the "zombies" to attack other victims should have resulted in this movie lasting about 15 minutes, as there's no way in heaven that mankind could assemble a response in such a short time period. Philly and Jerusalem essentially fell in 10 minutes.
The end, and it's build up, was pathetic. For people who KNOW the "zombies" are attracted to noise, you'd think they could travel through the world health organization (WHO) facilitate without kicking, crunching, or banging into everything in the building.
I still think one of the cable networks should have bought the rights to the book. They could have covered a different person's story from the book each week, and covered each of the parts in one-two season increments. Heck, they could even write original stories for the series.
Alas, however, they chose to cater to the short attention span and addiction to CGI today's audiences seem to crave.moreless
Effective and disturbing but its kind of all been done before.
As in the entire idea of a zombie film is no longer the grab it used to be for fans of horror films. Despite that, the use of 3D makes this film more watchable had it just been available in regular 2D. Brad Pitt returns to the screen after being away for a bit and does a good job in this movie which does have some powerful acting in it here and there. You might find yourself disagreeing with the way certain scenes were shot-as in at one point there is a huge struggle to get from one part of a building to another part of a building-considering that the building in question is basically on the ground level and there are no obstacles outside did seem a bit strange-and in another scene someone detonates a grenade on a plane-and expects it to keep flying afterwards-as in such a thing would likely cause a plane to split in two halves at the very basically a typical summer film that doesn't really make a heck of a lot of sense when you think about it but its a good escape from the summer heat.moreless
