Brad's not gonna get an Oscar playing another stereotypical lead action guy (the 'brilliant' badass character, retiring to flip pancakes for his two brat daughters, but asked to come back to save the world). There is zero chemistry between Pitt and Mireille Enos. The nerd Harvard grad is another insulting character to throw in. This whole story is too little and too late with such great series as 'The Returned' and 'The Walking Dead'. This has nothing to offer. Angelina's in the lead for the next Oscar, Brad. Oh wait! You got one as producer of that slave movie. Ok, I guess you're even. Angelina's a better actor, though.

This was a decent movie. I have watched it more than once because it isn't too scary compared to some other zombie movies. It wasn't as good as I expected, since there wasn't an on-going flow of zombie action, since I think the movie was going for a saving-the-world kind of movie rather than a zombie-hunting kind of movie. Still, this movie had me on the edge of my seat (well, actually, it had me sitting back and with my legs off the floor) whenever there was a scene with zombies. But altogether, this is a movie you should see and I am really excited for the sequel.

So i had this bad dream in which i was watching a bad american version of 28 days later. Scene by scene it followed like blue print. Except nowhere near as good...Then i realized i wasn't asleep, i was merely watching this horrible movie.
Read the book. Watch 28 days later... both are far more gratifying than this...It is to zombies, what Twilight is to vampires...

I never in a million years thought that I would watch a zombie movie. My husband said this received good reviews so he wanted to watch it. I thought that I would give it 10 minutes of my time and then I'd start reading a book. I ended up sitting through the whole movie so that is a recommendation in itself.

I can't compare the action to "fast moving" zombies as some other reviewers have done because I am a zombie "newbie". I did like the fact that the zombie state was induced by a virus as that seems more "credible" than some other options. I liked the special effects and the characters were fairly well developed. The movie was not as gory as I was expecting and yet was still suspenseful. Not really a family movie, however, unless everyone is over the age of 12.

The beginning is the best part of this movie. It doesn’t take long to realize that little is original here. If you’re looking for a catastrophic virus/apocalyptic film, stick with “I Am Legend,” and for zombies, AMC’s show, “The Walking Dead.”

While this incarnation is only about 5% faithful to the book it still manages to be a decent zombie movie. I read the book and my 1st watching of this was disappointing. I decided, a week after, to watch a 2nd time (while trying to disregard all previous knowledge) and it was much better. Aside from the title of the book and the name of the main character, it has very little to do with the novel. The zombies are morphed from the slow moving 'Walking Dead' type into the fast moving, almost superhuman, kind you find in '28 Days Later'; and the mission of Gerry Lane changes from being a historian/documentarist to a sort of hero/savior. Also, rather than being in the horror genre, it is much more of an action packed movie (although there are a couple scary scenes). It's also PG-13 so don't expect much gore or zombie feeding frenzies. Bottom line is if you like zombie movies and you've not read the book you will probably like it. If you've read the book then check any preconceptions at the door.

In my opinion, for being the most hyped and expensive ($190 million) zombie movie ever made, WWZ really wimped out, big-time. ~~~ I mean, c'mon - For the sheer magnitude of this particular zombie invasion (which was literally worldwide), WWZ should've been made as an x-rated horror movie where all of the gore and horror would completely overwhelm the viewer and leave one absolutely gasping to catch their breath. ~~~ An epidemic of this virus's magnitude was rendered way too tame with this film's laughable PG-13 rating. ~~~ With the exception of a few very impressive swarming zombie attacks (where the utter panic in the crowd was perfectly executed), WWZ contained far too many scenes that reduced its story to the point of being nearly anaemic. ~~~ Here are 2 of my biggest beefs which lost WWZ some significant points. ~~~ (1) The wall that was built around the entire city of Jerusalem was a stroke of sheer stupidity which went way beyond anything even marginally plausible. Like, do you actually realize what sort of an undertaking this would be to construct such a wall as this? (And after it was built it didn't even turn out to be zombie-proof anyways) ~~~ (2) I thought that the Gerry Lane character, played by that over-rated actor, Brad Pitt, made for an absolutely terrible hero. This guy was completely clueless as to what was going one, yet it seemed like everyone was relying on this dunce to save the day. (Spare me, please!) ~~~ And speaking about Brad Pitt, I thought that this no-talent twit was really showing his age in this picture. To me, Pitt looked totally haggard, tired and, yes, bored throughout the entire duration of the story.

I was expecting more from this movie. Good special effects... beyond this, there's very little that will keep you watching.

When nine people agree on something, it’s the tenth man’s responsibility to disagree no matter how improbable the idea.

When the email came through that zombies were on their way, the tenth man proposed that they prepare for a zombie invasion, no matter how ridiculous the idea seemed.

If the tenth man hadn’t spoken, Israel would have been overrun by zombies like the rest of the world.

The tenth man forced Israel to consider an alternative view point, something we humans usually resist.

Andrew Fassbach (Harvard Scientist): Mother Nature is a serial killer. No one's better, or more creative. Like all serial killers, she can't help but have the urge to get caught or what good would all those brilliant crimes do if no one takes the credit? So she leaves crumbs. Now the hard part, is seeing the crumbs, the clues there. Sometimes it's in your thoughts where the most brutal part of a virus is. Turns out to be the chink in its armor. And she loves disguising her weaknesses as strengths. She's a bitch.
