Very over rated. It was an ok movie but the best of the year? Not even close. Heck, it might be near the worst of the year if I have a vote. The character development is weak at best. You couldn't care less about who died in that movie. There was no chemistry between Brad Pitt and his wife. Charactors are forgettable. The Zombies are very unrealistic and for some reason a lot smarter for having a fried brain. They are trying to make this into 28 days later but sadly 28 days later is so much better. Also if they trying to make it scarier than I Am Legend, they need more work to do. The ending is pretty lame. I heard from people that this movie is base on a book but not really exactly like the book which is fine. So I assumed the people who love the book should not expect this movie to be just like the book. There are so many answers of why it happen or what happen or why certain people do this or what not. No surprised or suspense that I know of. I know I might be in the minorities here who think this movie kind of suck but this is my opinions and I actually believe there are many people who think the same way. I'm sorry but people who think this movie is the best movie of the year doesn't know much about good movies. It is just a great marketing scheme movies and people with not much brain cells tend to like it. People who just like to see a bunch of zomibes running around like ninjas probably like it. People who couldn't care less about charactor development or storyline probably like it.
1. How do you know what a "realistic" zombie is? Have you seen one in person. No you haven't ..so you can't say the zombies are "unrealistic" because they don't fit the stereotypical zombie category. Why do zombies have to have a fried brain? Since when do zombies need a to be dumb....
2. You first state that it is your opinion that the movie was overrated. Which is fine and respectable but then you go on to say the people who don't agree with your opinion and like the movie are dumb. I don't understand how you can call someone dumb for liking a movie while half the statements you typed didn't make much sense.
If you don't like...cool thats respectable, its your opinion. But don't try to insult the people who do like it.
