I thought this was very entertaining...my husband thought it was predictable...but that's just silly. Of course it was predictable - Brad Pitt would prevail - duh! - But other than that fact (that any idiot could have predicted), I thought it kept you thinking. Very good.

I really enjoyed it and wished it were longer and included more stuff. Or maybe a part II was coming. Yes, yes its goes on a different take than the book and I'm one of those people who gets annoyed when the movie is different from the book but I really enjoyed this movie! And it makes me want to read the book again. Good job BP.

What I liked best about this movie is that it could have easily been a bloody, gory shock fest, but it wasn't. This one was focused on a viable storyline - what happens when a global epidemic threatens to end humanity? How do you find a cure? I don't need to see zombies eating faces to find out, and luckily, this movie avoided both that and unnecessary cussing. Sure, there were moments that made me jump, and others that had my anxiety level through the roof, but it was all for the sake of the story.
Brad Pitt was believable as a dad torn between duty to the U.N. (and the world) and his need to protect his family. I thought the dialogue was well done, especially in the plane scene with the scientist explaining Mother Nature. The cinematography was breath-taking.
Definitely a go-to movie for teens/adults.

I'll give this one a C. It was just okay, no lack of zombies for sure, some intense moments but some parts were like yeah right.... I'll give Pitt a A for effort. It was fun all the same.
Fast & Furious is still #1 in my book for summer movies so far.
