Review:

Nothing like a zombie movie to make you want to set up a stock pile and build a fallout shelter.

I’ll be honest there were parts were I muted the TV. I’ve never liked horror but for some reason I’ll watch zombie movies. No idea why since most of the time I end up screaming.

I loved the book, audio and regular, and originally had very high hopes for this. Those expectations were lowered the more I found out about it but I’ve been trying to judge movies just on themselves and not on their books. It’s difficult.

My husband says this movie should be re-titled Brad Pitt in The Luckiest Son of a Bitch on the Planet. I think that pretty much sums up my review. Zombies are already ridiculous but World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide always acted like they were real, which was part of what made them so good. The movie was just another zombie movie and didn’t have much to do with either book.

2.5/5
