I am a complete fan of the book and went in knowing the movie was different. Still a good movie and has some references to the book. The book would have been hard to turn into a movie. I enjoyed it and would want to watch it again when it comes out of theaters.

For starters, I'd like to say that I did in fact read the book and yes the movie is 100% different (literally not a single detail remained the same other than that they are zombies) but realistically I'm not sure how the book would have translated to a movie and I think this adaptation was very well done. Easily the best zombie movie I've ever seen. Brad Pitt was amazing, as was the rest of the supporting cast. A little scarier than I had anticipated but again, still very good.

Exciting movie based on a really good book that doesnt stray to far from the book. I would defiantly recommend this movie & see it again!

I wouldn't classify it as a blockbuster, but it was pretty good and I enjoyed it.
The action moved along at a good clip. It was not scary in the traditional sense, but there were some tense moments. I actually liked the fact that they didn't focus on the blood and gore aspect of the zombies. It turns out that it wasn't really needed, and the PG-13 rating allowed me to bring my 2 kids (who also liked it).
One interesting thing. If you read some of the reviews from people who have read the book, there is a consensus that the movie took too many liberties, and that it took a very rich and complex narrative and shortened it and dumbed it down. I haven't read the book, but I do remember thinking while watching the movie that we were getting the cliff notes version. I say that cause the action is all over the place, in different locations around the world, and I felt that there was so much more to the story, and the movie was just scratching the surface. Left me wanting more.

We went into the movie with no expectations ( had no idea what it was about ) The movie grab us in the first 5 minutes . Non stop action , trills and excitement ! When it was over we looked at each other and said " so glad we saw it and in the theatre ". It is the MUST SEE MOVIE OF THE SUMMER !
