Well, I'd been waiting for this movie to come out basically since I finished reading the book it's based on a couple or three years. It's one of those (unfortunately rare) books that you can't help visualizing what they would look like on a big screen. I guess I'd say I was 2/3rds happy with the movie. I think I'd have been overall a lot more pleased with it if they hadn't jacked up the pacing of the movie. The first two thirds of the thing are jammed packed with full-on zombie action including Brad Pitt's character getting his family out to the safe zone and essentially being blackmailed into hunting down the source of the outbreak. Once that part of the story gets nicely going they suddenly force you to shift gears and accept going from the whole gorey zombie apocalypse scenario to the scientists trapped in a sterile biodefense lab occupied by 80 of the undead. I don't know why but it really felt like they didn't quite pull off the dramatic tension in that part of it. There just were no atmospherics and the zombies didn't feel at all threatening. They actually just seemed like normal people with incredibly severe anger management issues and a proclivity for biting. Mostly I'd say that's cause the first two thirds of the film had you watching zombies that were computer generated and doing amazingly eye-catching acrobatics and by the time they got to the laboratory part of the movie they were relying on stuntmen who were physically incapable of recreating that. You know, now that I think about it, I think a little wire work would've gone a long ways toward amping up the tension. With all that said, I my palms still got sweaty enough that I had to wash my hands afterwards so overall I'd say it was fairly decent. I just think they missed some good opportunities to keep that tension going toward the end of the movie. Oh, if you're thinking this is one of those scary movies where you'll be jumping out of your seat or something let me tell you it isn't really. I'd say it's scary in the sense that it seems as real as a movie about a zombie apocalypse can be.
