World War Z
The wife and I got to see this on opening day and IT WAS AWESOME!!!! My understanding is that it is quite a departure from the book though (which I now plan on reading).

I really enjoyed the story, the pacing, and the acting. But what I liked even more was that it had a broader message. And it wasn't all that subtle once you realize it. Vaccines save lives. If you have not see this movie, and you like zombie flicks, GO SEE IT!!!!

RE: World War Z
I saw it yesterday with my daughter; it's very intense. It's certainly not your typical make-a-stand-and-fight zombie film. There were a couple times when my daughter was feeling some serious empathy pain.

The book and the film only really share the name in common. However, it is one of my favourite books, so I think you are going to enjoy it. Wink

RE: World War Z
The movie was surprisingly non-violent. It really relied on the atmosphere and suspense, rather than the gore and horror. It was a refreshing change.

RE: World War Z
Meh, it was alright. A bit like I Am Legend, a but without the emotional bits and loneliness.

RE: World War Z
I agree with Dark Light; it had a real "I Am Legend" sort of feel. Both in the way it looked and how the zombies acted.

I myself really loved it, though. It wasn't like a lot of other zombie flicks; the typical, sluggish zombies roaming around and a rag-tag group of survivors (each with their own badass/tough-guy complex) fighting to stay alive with chainsaws and shotguns while people get eaten (in graphic, gore-porn-esque detail) left and right. In other words, it wasn't a B-grade movie. It was a well-shot, well-acted, and well-told story. Even my super conservative, christian mother liked it.

I'll also say that this was the first time since "28 Days later" that zombies actually made me feel uneasy. There were several "Oh my fucking god, no..." moments in this movie. (Zombies on rooftops...zombies scaling a wall..zombies on a plane...etc.) Most zombie flicks make me want to grab my gun for the sake of zombie-killin' fun. This movie made me want to grab my gun for protection.

The man's hair sold the movie.

That worries me slightly... since they are meant to be vampires in I Am Legend. I didn't get that feel. I did hate that film though. Although, that is probably because I loved the book so much and they were nothing alike. Kind of like this! Tongue

WWZ is still decent though when you totally disconnect the book and the film in your mind.

Did you hear any of that Inception/Prometheus noise, or is it only in the trailer?
