Poll: What Did You Think of ‘World War Z’?

After a year’s delay for rewrites, reshoots and a 3D conversion, the Brad Pitt zombie apocalypse epic ‘World War Z’ finally opened this weekend. Was it worth the wait? If you saw it, what did you think?

Reportedly, the mega-budget, infamously troubled production will have to gross at least $400 million just to break even. Fortunately for studio Paramount, the initial box office returns look pretty strong. Regardless, this is a “Wait for Blu-ray” movie for me. I gave my money to Joss Whedon’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ this weekend instead. Honestly, I don’t feel like I missed out on much. Am I wrong about that?

    Ive read the book. And never thought they could pull it off as a movie. Thus we have the name on this movie. WHICH I LIKE. I liked the movie. It was good, a few issues. But overall it was what I expect from a summer movie.

    I think like many I have heard that the book would have made a better TV series. Let HBO do a Band of Brothers length series .. oh well.

    I didn’t even know there was a book, until I was sitting at the theater, and people around me were like “Have you read the book?”. I thought the movie was great, one of the best written, best acted, best directed movies I have seen in a long time (well, with the exception of Gatsby). It was very refreshing. It had a great story, it didn’t insult the audience, and enough action to push the movie along and keep you on the edge of your seat, then, at the end, just when it can’t get any tenser, they start throwing in the comedy relief.

    The movie is great. I don’t have a clue how it compares to the book, but on its own merrit, it stands quite well. Highly recommend, and remember to drink Pepsi and always have your Iridium phone charged!

    Loved the book and was ready to hate the film version with all the behind the scene dramas, but surprisingly I enjoyed the film quite a bit. Of course it’s nothing like the book but I think it’s hard to adapt Brooks’ faithfully. The shift of tone in the second half of the film bugged me a bit though. I hope they include the original ending on Bluray or reinstate it as a director’s cut or something.

    Look, I liked the movie and will buy it on Blu-ray when it comes out!! Great zombie movie for the PG-13 crowd! I have never read the book.

    I just thought the ending was a little anti-climatic, sort of? Seems like most directors end movies like this with a big slam bang but this ending was just in that lab. It was OK, don’t get me wrong just not real spectacular.

    I realize they are setting this up for a sequel and I read earlier today that a sequel is more than likely especially since it did way better than expected at the box office so far. For Brad Pitt, being such a well known star, I also read that this was the biggest Brad Pitt movie so far, box office wise over the opening weekend. $66 million domestic. $112 million, so far, worldwide.

    I will look forward to the next chapter!

    I knew going in that they rewrote and shot a new ending but i tought it was of “i am legend” scale.
    And as I was leaving the theater I talked about liking the movie up to the third act. I tought the 3rd act had a whole different vibe, it was good, but felt a bit out of place, or not living up to what was being built up. After some reading, found out it was the whole 3rd act that was reshot…

    It’s an absolutely atrocious adaptation of the book. But it was still a solid movie that I (surprisingly) enjoyed, and found entertaining, on a brainless blockbuster level. I just had to consciously disconnect it from the source material.

    I voted “Pretty good. It has a few issues, but I liked it overall.”

    This film is decent. I enjoyed it. Lots of plot holes though and the action couldve been better, nice ending though.
