I love zombie movies and I enjoy Brad Pitt but I decided to take in the latest from Coppola first (will do WWZ tom).
The movie wasn't great but it's certainly very good and will be of entertainment to those wanting to break free of the monster movies being released each week. I think what I enjoy most about the picture is the beautiful style that Coppola brings. The cinematography is top-notch and some of the best work I've seen this year and especially during the stealing scenes. Showing the nightlife of clubs in L.A. were also well shot. The performances from the entire cast were extremely good but it's Emma Watson who really shines as she plays what I'd call the blindest of the teens.
If you're expecting a "story" then you're really not going to get one. We see them steal. We see them like to steal. We know they want to be close to Paris and Lohan. They get busted. That's pretty much all of the story but it's clear Coppola was interested in showing how dumb some people are in regards to their love for famous people. Some reviews have complained that all of the characters seem like the same person and there's no growth from any of them. I think this was done on purpose to show that these people don't want to be themselves and instead they're "acting" to be someone else and this is the reason why these people are so stupid in more ways than one.
I'm going back and forth of a *** or *** 1/2 but for now will stick with the 3 1/2
