The remake that was not

"The Crazies" directed by Breck Eisner and arguably his most competently executed feature to date, follows loosely the George A. Romero's movie from 1973, taking a tricky twist on the zombie horror genre, which had been to spoiled for the years come by the October 2010 releasing "The Walking Dead", where this movie keeps its distance from the approaching menace, almost invisible are the transformations of the infected humans that the leading couple has to encounter, performed respectively as relentless functioning work unit actress Radha Mitchell and Timothy Olyphant, whom's convincing on-screen relationship in extreme situations of terror elevate "The Crazies" to an constant urgency-preaching thriller of 90 minutes worth the watch for genre lovers.

Better then the original!

I have to say this is better then the original because it had lots of jumpscares, the scary theme, best characters and good storyline which makes you want to be glued at. The original was rather grainy, didn't have the story to be excited about and the acting wasn't brilliant tbh. I like the fact it included a sheriff, his wife, his deputy and the neighbour. They did such great teamwork in killing the infected people who act like zombies. Unfortunately the deputy and the neighbour died from the crazies or the police.

At least the couple lived but still it can be upsetting that people are getting killed or accidentally killed because they thought they had the disease. I wish we could see a sequel because this was brilliant to watch!

Surprisingly better than I expected

What I really love about this movie, was the main character. He really did the whole movie for me.

Usually, in zombie movies or "OMG it's a horrible disease that spreads quickly!" movies, the characters wait around until the story forces them to act. But not in this movie! This movie's protagonist takes the initiative, he isn't waiting around to be killed once he gets the gist of things. He starts off trying to help legally, and then resorts to the illegal.

He was & is a well written character, his actor was fine as well but not something too amazing or interesting.

Pros:

Well written protagonist & support Cool and somewhat realistic plot Well done action scenes

Cons: It takes a bit of time 'till the story kicks in, but I believe it's worth the wait
