wow saw it last night and in my opinion it is the best movie i have seen this far this year just topping zero dark thirty and argo by a tad. thought they did a fantastic job with the zombies and an even better job getting pitt around the world to Korea then Israel.

very realistic. looking forward to hearing other opinions on it.

sorry if this was a re post couldn't find anything on world war z using the search function

My Ride: is not an M3
I saw it last night with my friends, and none of us were really that impressed. It was a nice way to spend the a few hours, but ultimately forgettable. I can't even remember Brad Pitt's character's name anymore haha. If I could list one thing I liked, it was how international the plot is. That's it, really. Granted, I have not read the book, so I feel that if I had read the book beforehand, my opinion might be different.

On a side note, the implementation of 3D seems to be getting a bit better - this is the first 3D movie I've watched where I didn't exit the theater with sore eyes.

Entirely not the case, I absolutely loved 28 Days/Weeks Later and Shaun of the Dead for example. I also spent quite a bit of time on Left 4 Dead 2 back when I had the time for such things. World War Z just didn't float my boat, I guess. To each his own, yeah?

Are you guys kidding me? This movie was incredible. A lot of action. Incredibly tense. The globe hopping really facilitated the plot development as well. This was a hell of a movie.

Ok saw it and while there were some cool scenes, many which were shown on the trailer. I was not blown away by this movie. It was ok, saw it in 3D as well and while 3D is cool for the first 5 minutes, after that I forgot I was watching a 3D movie. I guess that is sorta the case for most 3D movies. Personally rather save the $ and watch the non-3D.
I give it a 3.5 stars out of 5. I was looking forward to this movie since last year and I guess I had higher expections. Perhaps I am getting bored of the Zombie genre, I pretty much seen all zombie movies and am left to wonder what more can be done in this genre. Every zombie scenerio has been done to death.
Also for a scary movie, I heard more laughs than people being scared. The zombies can sometimes seem overacted out.

i find it weird how so many people love it and then a bunch of people think its just another zombie movie. it contains more quality sets and is just a higher budget movie i think 200 million.. i am extremely impressed might see it again which i never see movies twice

Read the book and found it cool but hard to follow

Might read it again before seeing the movie

Book was really entertaining. The movie and book happen to share a "zombie apocalypse" plot line, but that's about it.

The movie wasn't bad. It's certainly not going to bring home any oscars, but it was good mindless summer eye candy. Which is what I walked expecting.

I was really amazed, though, that they got a C-130 to take off from an aircraft carrier, and to fly the 5000 miles from Korea to Israel without stopping.

C-130J

And carrier take-offs and landings are also possible, they experimented with it in the 60's
