Reasons to stay as far away as possible:

  1. The trailer was so unspeakable, shockingly bad it kill any interest one might had in the movie.
  2. The movie takes the book it was based on into the ground, beat the sh*t out of it with a shovel and proceed to bury it alive.
  3. Shaky cam is one the worst movie gimmicks used recently and makes me want go find the director and beat the bastard into a pulp
  4. Zombie waves. What the f*** where they smoking when they come up with that.

I don't intend to see this movie any sooner. I don't want to get cancer.

I hope the remake Robocop, same as World War Z, would show us we're wrong and prove itself to be a good film.

I haven't watched WWZ but so far many online reviewers who I respect has given this film a positive review.

P.S I really hated the trailer so I'm surprised it's getting positive reaction.

I'm sure the movie has to live up to at least some of the standards that the ratings give it, but I just can't help watching a teaser or trailer for this movie and saying "Hollywood bulls*** zombies". I'd like to be wrong on my negative sentiments towards this thing, though.

Haven't seen it, don't plan to.

Not out of any righteous fury or anything, it just looks aggressively mediocre.

I want to see it because it looks like a good action flick but I don't want to see it out of respect for the poor book that has been butchered by Hollywood for movie consumption......

I could care less if it wasn't like the book. I saw it and just thought it was a bad FILM.

"I could care less" is short for "I could care less but can't be bothered to because that's how little I care"

On the real. If this was a movie for someone who is unaware of the novel and who likes horror/zombie violence/post/pre-apocalyptic setting, would it be appealing for them?

To be honest I never read the book and I am not a zombie fan to begin with, even though I do find the premise of the WWZ novel rather very interesting than the typical zombie apocalypse scenario seeing society recovering from that. This movie pisses me off on a more marketing standpoint, because the trailer in my opinion was particularly awful to sit through with that horrible, horrible Inception sound effect and over-reliance on CGI. I am not surprised this movie is bombing because of the marketing as this wouldn't be a first time. If you are a casual viewer or a zombie fan, you will probably enjoy the ride, while I am content to stay put.

Plus fast zombies. F##k fast zombies. I've read the book and this film is a disgrace to the name and literally seems to have only taken the title of the book. As a huge fan of zombie movies it really doesn't look like a good one even without it pissing on the source material. It kind of seems like crap to me honestly.

The fact that its a zombie movie is already a strike against it for me and the trailers didn't really help.

#27 Edited by joshmightbe (24598 posts) - - Show Bio

I just never understood the fear factor of a creature that individually is less threatening than a good sized dog so an actual horde of say rabid pit bulls would be way more frightening than a horde of zombies and if it can be outdone by a regular animal its not a real monster.

this guy on yahoo said it best lol

I could care less” is one of those idiomatic expressions, particularly in American English, that doesn’t necessarily mean what it says. There are numerous suggestions for the origin of the phrase. The most recent of these is that “I could care less” is a corruption of the term “I couldn’t care less,” possibly first used in the UK in the 1940s. By the 1960s, Americans had adopted “I could care less.” Was it laziness, poor hearing or deliberate irony?

Many contend it was laziness, much like the phrase “a hot cup of coffee,” changing to, "who wants a hot cup?" Most people would prefer to have a cup of hot coffee, or eat their cake and have it too. Simple reversals or omissions of words can result in phrases like “I could care less,” when what you really mean is you don’t care at all.

I havent seen it yet, and I dont really want to. I will probably see it when it comes OnDemand for free. They absolutely butchered Max Brooks' American Horror classic. It, in now way, has anything to do with the book...except for the fact that there are zombies...and they are very different from the novel as well.

This movie may very well be a decent zombie movie, in its own right; but, one this is for sure, it is NOT "World War Z". I predicted that this would be one of the biggest flops of the year. Check out my blog from last August. http://www.comicvine.com/forums/off-topic-5/world-war-z-adaptation-to-suck-690441/

It should have been adapted into a 10-15 epsiode mini-series on HBO. Its the only way to tell the entire story, and give the narratives the screen time they need.

Never read the book, got dragged to it and found it to be an acceptable popcorn/summer blockbuster. Was entertaining without being too stupid (there were several annoying things but mostly ignorable). I'd give it a 6.5 or 7. I'd honestly say see MOS if you want something better but if you've seen that and want more action you could do worse.
