It's a really cool idea, and I love the design of the zombies, but some things just don't work here for me. In particular, I think there is wasted potential in the story, and I end up wondering what exactly the point of the story by the end of it, aside from setting up a sequel. I like Snyder, and his style and the action is what worked the best here. It's ultimately still a fun movie, but some of the best aspects of it feel wasted.
I think this movie is a lot better than most people would probably expect. John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale give really great performances and have great chemistry here, and there's some solid funny moments throughout. Better than most rom coms imo. The supporting cast is great too, with Jeremy Piven, Eugene Levy, Molly Shannon, and John Corbett all having some fun moments.
Well holy crap this movie is intense. Seriously, one of most tense movies I've seen. Russel Crowe gives a great performance, and I thought Caren Pistorius did a great job really pushing the audience to feel the suspense and serious worry for what was going to happen next. I don't really understand the complaints I've seen from some people, aside from one particular line, which was silly but it worked just fine. I was thoroughly entertained and surprised by this movie.
I'm currently watching The Thick of It, so I wanted to check out this movie, which is essentially an alternate universe version of that show with a slightly bigger budget, and where part of it takes place in America. Peter Capaldi is great as Malcom Tucker, as he is in the show, and the various supporting characters all have their charm. Overall though, I didn't think the story was the best I've seen from this format.
I went into this movie knowing next to nothing about it. I was basically expecting something along the lines of Iron Fist, and I got something far more epic than I was expecting. The martial arts sequences are absolutely incredible, and the 3D works really well with the action in the movie, but the final act takes everything to a new level, and I loved every bit of it.
