Film Brief: John Dies at the End

Paul Giamatti

Paul Giamatti

I highlighted the movie John Dies at the End in a prior post with trailer, stating that it looked like “a TERRIFICALLY fun movie.”  As it turns out, not quite.  A sort of David Cronenberg-esque independent zombie film crossed with Men in Black, John Dies at the End starts off well but ends up dropping the ball.  A mild recommendation — there are some fun moments and I do very much like Paul Giamatti (Sideways); 6/10

Comparison Notes (all recommended): Fido, Teeth, Jennifer’s Body, Zombieland, Men in Black, Chronicle

    • I liked it too, but I wanted more. I am surprised it got such a limited theatrical release. It would have been more fun to see it in the theater.
