This movie, starred by Brad Pitt us a macabre and chilling story based on the eponymous novel by Max Brooks. Even thouh the script doesn’t fit in with the novel’s timeline or events, the story is so thrilling and compelling that it keeps you stuck to your chair until the end.
The story combines the idea of the always fearful and apocalyptic end of the world with the traditional and eerie zomby tales. This product of its time, takes one step further for a number of reasons: on the one hand, monsters are not depicted as the sluggish creatures shown in The Walking Dead series, on the contrary, they behave in a quite intelligent way and this is why they look even more scary. On the other hand, for example, the story turns out to be more realistic since it includes real scenarios, like different countries and places and how the situation would be faced up to in different backgrounds and locations.
Special effects were not great though, especially when trying to show massive amounts of monsters moving forwards at the same time. I don’t think that would have been possible without the use of technologies, but it doesn’t look realistic anyway.
I would definitely recommend to spend a rainy afternoon watching this exciting movie, but be careful and get ready to dwell in a realm of creepy creatures for almost two hours.
