The tales of problematic re-shoots, re-writes and ballooning budgets have plagued Brad Pitt's zombie thriller World War Z, so it would be safe to assume that the movie is going to be an absolute turkey right? Wrong, actually. Early reviews are in for Paramount Pictures' troubled movie and the reactions are overwhelmingly positive.
Here are a selection of twitter reviews from some celebrities and critics who've been lucky enough to see it already:
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 after all that fuss, 'World War Z' turned out to be a surprisingly effective zombie thriller.— Mike Sampson (@mjsamps) 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
We can find out for ourselves just how good World War Z is when it opens in theaters June 21st.
