I went in to see this with no preconceptions. I didn't read the book and managed to never even lay eyes on a trailer until about a week ago. I went with the wife who loves the zombie thing. All I wanted to do was have an entertaining couple of hours without having it suck. I'm glad to say it did entertain and I didn't think it sucked at all. I enjoyed the movie; Pitt did a good job as did his supporting characters - especially his eventual Israeli sidekick, and I enjoyed the SFX. The ending didn't bother me like it appears to have done others because I found it credible, but after reading about the 'Russian sequence', I hope it makes it to the DVD. It was a good couple of hours of fun.
