My fiance sucked up his hatred of all the movies I pick to watch in theaters and treated me to World War Z yesterday. He was NOT a fan of Warm Bodies and to be honest, neither was I. I was disappointed in that one but in World War Z... I was not.
It was fantastic.
And Jerry wasn't disappointed either. He didn't LOVE love it, but he said it was MUCH better than the other movies I've picked. It was exciting and suspenseful and in 3D it was just awesome. Brad Pitt did much better than I'd expected too. I don't really care for Brad Pitt anymore, but I think he was stellar in this movie.
I like how the Zombies weren't all shambling, slow moving... it was a lot creepier and scarier because their movements were jerky and weird and they were super fast. It was like they had the rabies virus on crack. And there's a great twist at the end of the movie that'll keep you on the edge of your seat.
Now, I've never read the book by Max Brooks, and I'm glad that I haven't. I have a tendency to rip movies to shreds if I watch them after I've read the book. It annoys the heck out of whoever I'm there with and totally ruins the movie for them.
I definitely recommend this for everyone. Ok, well, maybe everyone over the age of 13 or 14. Whether you've read the book or not it's a great movie to see. Fans of all different kinds of zombies will enjoy this one I think. Go check it out!
