Reviews - What do customers think about Shaun Of The Dead?
It's a matter of taste.... Nov 13, 2007
The artist's rendition of the actors are fine, but almost all of the humor that made the movie watchable and interesting are drained down to nothing. A lot of it has to do with film and timing, which isn't present in a graphic novel.
Largely for fans, the movie is still supreme Jul 27, 2006
I bought this largely for the "deleted" scenes. I knew there were some scenes involving Mary the checkout girl and others in comic form, and I was hoping they would be in this volue. No, what's here is pretty much what you saw in the movie with some of the scenes shortened. They problematically weed out some of those moments that made the movie a great mix of smart and dumb humor. Ed's "prediction" speech from the bar is gone, as his is "got wood" shirt. Pete's deconstruction of Shaun's life that leads to a lot of his attempts is gone. The two walks to the store are essentially gone (including the second one's excellent descent into ignorance no matter what). A lot of the background gags (news stations showing men in biohazard suits while Shaun looks away, for instance, or people coughing on the bus) have been overlooked, though a few new ones are in place and the timing on a lot of the jokes probably wouldn't make sense to you if you haven't seen the movie already. All in all it keeps the big story well and intact, cuts out a lot of the "drawn out" sections of the movie, and offers a few new little visuals (zombie neighbor waving sort of things, single panel additions, unless my mind is warped and I am overlooking the deleted scenes that are put back in) but really doesn't equal the completeness of the original movie. The only real plus, here, are the extras. The covers and the "pin ups" included at the back are quite well done and warrant an extra star from me on their own (hence the 4 stars instead of 3).
