Damon Lindelof was hired to rewrite the third act, but did not have time to finish the script, and Drew Goddard was hired to rewrite it. It is very different to the traditional zombie movie, and very different to the book. Was that so difficult to make it a cricket bat? There is no suspense because the ending is announced basically in the first 5 minutes of this sequence, Pitt will go into the zombie infested part of the building, get some disease samples and bring them back. Zombies have always been one of my film hobbies and I was surprised to see this as a movie. Here is a list of the things that went wrong: 1. A South Korean airbase is portrayed as a series of dark rooms; too much of the movie takes place in an airline seat; there is a lot of sitting around inside of the aircraft carrier, etc. I would have thought a director of this size movie would be able to make a speech.
And to add insult to injury, the soldier girl with one hand picks the baseball bat. Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies. I learnt several things from this movie 1 to let go of my preconceptions about what a zombie film should be, 2 that a low rating doesn't mean its for kids - I have two sons and despite the lack of gore I certainly wouldn't let then see this. I for one will be getting this on blu ray and I'll be first in line for any sequel. All they need to do is to seat Pitt and the soldier girl in front of one of the displays and show them where the goodies are before sending them in. Aside from the opening scenes in Philadelphia and the middle act in Jerusalem, there are no big outdoor sets.
I was also surprised at how cheap this movie looked. Movie : Downloads : 118557 Language : English tag : ,, Genres : ,,,,, Release date : 2013 Summary : Life for former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane and his family seems content. Why can't they send multiple teams, with more than one expert on each? What follows is a perilous trek around the world where Lane must brave horrific dangers and long odds to find answers before human civilization falls. The gravity of the decisions Gerry has to make here are greater than any previously in the movie where mostly he just has to run like hell! Then there's the one zombie in captivity in the Wales research lab. It wasn't in New Jersey.
Which is odd because any director should be excited or proud to be presenting their work to the world! The ending sequence: Just as we think that the plot cannot get worse and we make peace with the idea of enjoying the special effects, the movie takes another down turn in the last 40 minutes or so. Brad Pitt in interview said they chose Mark as he was really good at the little emotional moments between characters. Ultimately the movie is completely forgettable and uneven, but not offensively bad or objectively terrible in any sense. There are some scenes that got me to jump but with all the horror movies i've seen I don't jump as much. Their marriage and children felt so plastic and ready-made that I personally would not have felt a thing if Pitt was torn apart by zombies in front of his family.
Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies. The movie begins with a short intro to the main character and his family it was enough, it told me all I needed to know before launching into a fantastic, break neck sequence that establishes the pace for most of the rest of the movie. After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease. I'll have what she's having! No great lines, and I don't really believe that he loves his kids and wife so terribly much. The audience laughed at several moment, that I don't believe the director even realised were gags!. The film could have been saved in the Edit - with some clever re-positioning of the major scenes, to get the structure right, but having seen Brad and Mark together, they had clearly fallen out of love with the movie. The sense of scale is very inconsistent, and this is accentuated in the bizarre final act, which was obviously the focus of the infamous reshoots as it feels like a completely separate movie.
Firstly the zombies were literally fast paced, second the action started after 5 minutes into it. After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease. They have a neurologist on the team, who incidentally cant stop using cheesy metaphors about mother nature. It's violent, visceral and shocking without any reliance in gore. The special effects disappear and we find Pitt and his sidekick in a W.
We still didn't because, see 3. You saw the zombie apocalypse coming didn't you? Bad character development: None of the characters in the movie had any depth. I was very surprised that they did not cover these, especially the Yonkers scene, because they would obviously fit so well into a film and the script, even as it is now, could easily be tweaked to include or at least mention them. Pitt's family was just the detestable suburban family, who apparently does nothing but turn money into feces. No emotional connection to any of the characters. I consider myself a patient viewer, but this very long and dull scene started to bring me down after a while, and my less patient viewing audience eventually fell completely out of sync with the film and began to make fun of it at every opportunity - not really a fair criticism of the film, but it's a real issue when it can't hold an audience's attention.
This film made me angry that a studio can waste so much money on what was a mediocre idea even at the beginning, and gave it to a director who has a proved track record of not being able to fix a bad script, or direct action. This made the zombies totally not scary and even on occasions towards the end, just plain laughable. Brad Pitt is really the film's only strength. So, with all those broken legs, backs and necks, the bodies could still run as if they had no such debilitating injuries. After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease. No sexuality, lots of violence, some gore, and some language. I just don't think Mark Forster Quantum of Bollox knows how to direct.
