First reactions to World War Z hit the internet and the verdict is...
After all of the nightmare stories involving the troubled production and delays on the set of WORLD WAR Z, the question everyone has been asking is whether or not the movie is going to be any good. First, the movie was over-budget, then they called in Damon Lindelof to fix the final act of the movie, and then there was talk of director Marc Forster and star/producer Brad Pitt refusing to work together on set. All of this on top of fans crying foul that the integrity of Max Brooks oral history format was sacrificed to make an action movie that shared little to nothing in common with the source material.
So, as screenings are underway, fan and critical reaction has begun to pour in and the verdict is? The movie is pretty good! Now, a lot of these are celebrities who are not likely to trash a potential Hollywood connection in Brad Pitt, but even the non-elite are saying the movie is fun. Check out some of their reactions:
Just saw World War Z. Sooo much better than World War A-Y. #WorldWarZ— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) May 23, 2013
World War Z: a big, solid zombie movie. Makes up for in scope what it lacks in blood.— Scott Collura (@ScottIGN) May 23, 2013
So after all that fuss, 'World War Z' turned out to be a surprisingly effective zombie thriller.— Mike Sampson (@mjsamps) May 23, 2013

World War Z will probably be the most intense movie you will see this summer...I was shocked it was that good. So much for those re-shoots.— LatinoReview-Kel (@Latinoreview) May 23, 2013
So, was World War Z exactly like the book? No, but I felt it captured much of the flavor, and man, does it have some intense sequences.— Charles Soule (@CharlesSoule) May 23, 2013
I saw World War Z tonight. It was NOT the book. But it was INCREDIBLY anxiety-inducing despite having flaws in the denoument. But!— bex schwartz (@starbex) May 23, 2013
With Morgan F at the World War Z screening. Love him and really liked the movie when my eyes weren't covered! twitter.com/katiecouric/stů— Katie Couric (@katiecouric) May 23, 2013
Saw World War Z. Not at all the disaster it's been made out to be. It's entertaining and will do fine. So there, negative buzz,— Kurt Andersen (@KBAndersen) May 23, 2013
World War Z is unreal. A great film. Was totally stressed out from start to finish— Emma Heming-Willis (@EmmaHeming) May 23, 2013
I will reserve judgement until I hear from our own Chris Bumbray or JimmyO, but this sounds a hell of a lot better than where I was imagining the movie was headed. Maybe we will end up getting a decent summer movie out of it after all.
