I'd be pretty pissed if I paid 14 bucks to go watch a zombie movie with a 20-minute sequence that showed exactly how soldiers were having their guns reloaded and how they slept in shifts. I'm told that the best way to watch it is to just pretend that it's just another story that would've been in the book instead of comparing it. But, I haven't watched it, so I don't know.
The thing is that the book is about a global response to a seemingly insurmountable threat, and how humanity pulled itself back from the brink of destruction almost entirely through sheer force of will, not finding a magic bullet. He'll the book even states at multiple points that there WAS no magic bullet, although not quite in those terms. There was so much in there that would have made it more than just the "search for a cure" movie it was. It was almost everything the book obviously tried not to be, and that was my problem. It's hard to watch it as another story when they changed so much.
I'm not upse about the quality of the movie itself. If it had any other title I probably would have liked it. But why make a movie based on a novel when youre gonna change everything that made the novel what it was?
But anyway, I guess I'm done ranting about it. A lot of people liked it, some didnt, I just happen to b part of the latter. It's how all movies are. But god dammit I wanted to see Yonkers.
