What a terrible gimmick. I'm not keeping it real because I went against the grain and said I liked a movie that got horrible reviews? Gotcha!

If you haven't seen it, its very intense with some great action.

7.8/10
hell yea that movie was awesome!

Carriers: 0%

Not sure which came out first, this or Zombieland, but It's like a carbon copy. It's kind of weird, actually. I felt like I was watching a remake. The beginning sequences are exactly the same, people are narrating over some action explaining the cardinal rules for surviving the zombie apocalypse. Then there's similar sequences on various highway scenes. I won't get into it any further but if you've watched both, Carriers just pales in comparison to Zombieland in every way.

Better, more likeable characters
Better action
Zombieland at least was funny
Wasn't full of tired cliches

This could be the deal where a movie maker with an idea pitches his film to different studios. Then one says no, but proceeds to makes its own film with the same idea but changes things to make it 'different'. Thats why almost every year you get films about the same things.

From what it said on Wikipedia, the movie was filmed in 2007 and was only just released. Guess they're just capitalizing on Chris Pine being a bigger name now.

I'm not sure if maybe Zen is right or if it was just a coincidence. Hard to believe it was since the two beginning sequences are exactly the same.

Doesn't really matter I guess, Zombieland was awesome, and this was crap.

Good to see Vada from My Girl back in action too, she was looking good. It's a shame most people can't see anything but Tony Soprano when they see James Gandolfini, the dude is outstanding in every single thing I've seen him in.

Whoops, didn't see this earlier.

The older guy, can't remember his name in the film, but anyways, his entire dialogue was pure f*cking comedy gold. I cried twice laughing from him.

Watched Avatar last week.
The 3D effects are nice, but once you get used to them you realize the story SUCKS.
Didn't like the movie, it's been really overrated.

This is what I thought, everyone's talking about how it's a great movie, but it's just a great looking movie to me, the rest is pretty blah.
