Nothing about the movie had anything to do with the book. . Lazy writing is all over the fucking place in this script. The movie's rating should be a consequence of the quality of film produced, not the other way around. Did Brad Pitt not already adopt enough children from third world countries that he needs to do it in his movies as well? And then the abortion was released and. We need a good movie, and good movies are based on good story, good direction, and good acting, among many other things.
Think princess bride with Fred savage's part being played by different people through the movie. It's just a marginally better film, taken on its own, with the gore, which usually isn't the case but when it's something of this genre, and there's some clear brutality without much blood, it feels too clean while everything else isn't. Maybe we will get a director's cut release with a little more substance to it one day. . I would love to see what he does in this universe. And what the fuck was that about the Mexican kid? As we may not get a proper adaptation ever now.
Even the fucking zombies are the complete opposite of what the book depicted. Runners are not fresh and surprising any more. World War Z, the movie, is the single most self serving and narcissistic piece of shit I've seen in theaters. So I went in to the film thinking that they weren't going to hold back on the gore that much as to not push for an 18 but it was all held back anyway and still slapped with a 15 certificate. And the action itself is mediocre.
A lethal virus, spread through a single bite, is turning healthy people into something vicious, unthinking and feral. The globe jumping, the before, during, and after of the outbreak. Didnt know if it was me or the writer that made Yonkers so epic. His whole family just got eaten by zombies and he's apparently cool with it because hey, he was adopted by these awesome white people. It's mentioned in other chapters, but I vaguely remember it from his perspective.
I enjoyed both but I would treat them as completely separate entities. I would have focused less on the actual interviews and more on the narrative aspect with occasional cuts back to the interview, showing the same journalist with different people. His suspicions are confirmed when, suddenly, the city erupts into chaos. More gore will not change that. You could pick a couple characters or regions to stick with, and otherwise just plug in interesting side stories to fill the rest of the episode. There's no depth to any of the characters because they all serve the singular purpose of getting eaten by zombies or making Brad look like a hero. It's been a while since I've read the book, but I think there's a section about an Indian general being overrun and having his men form a square.
As the pandemic threatens to consume humanity, Gerry leads a worldwide search to find the source of the infection and, with luck, a way to halt its spread. The point is, World War Z is the very best, the gold standard of its genre and can easily carry classical Zs. At night in bed with the lights out. . . . .
Don't even know how a part two could work since they basically cured the attraction to living flesh. How about the main character being a Mary Sue. Instead we got Dawn of the Dead 2: Dead faster. Just basic cookie cutter action. Seems made to be the Zombie series The Walking Dead is failing to become, I wish somebody would pony up the cash and take it to someone like Netflix for a better treatment.
I just finished the book today. Now I hate the movie. It's like making an R rated my little pony film, just doesn't add up. . It was too neat of a film.
