The Worst Film Ever
Surprisingly incoherent and boring
As Good As It Gets
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
I was entertained by the movie for the most part. Was a little different twist to this movies zombies in how they move and attack. Otherwise it was just another zombie movie
Though i am a die-heart zombie movie fan, I don't get to see the zombie movie that serves all the purposes of a typical zombie movie and eventually I came across many movies that include killing and traveling. But the main problem is that the traveling and all the adventure is confined to a particular place. Though the movie makers feed us with all the joy they can in that single environment but our wish isn't still fulfilled. Well, World War Z fulfills that wish and gives almost all the goosebumps that a normal zombie movie lacks. It covers all the action and killing scenes and for a surprise, at different places of the world. Brad Pitt plays a major role both in acting and balancing of the film. He is shown traveling to different places with a firm determination how to permanently get rid of the disease and indeed, he does.
I'm honestly surprised by the bad reviews on this site for this film. I've seen my fair share of zombie movies and this is my favourite. I've watched it a good 10 times and it doesn't take the fear away. The thought behind it that there is a was to defeat this disease is brilliant, as is the acting. I also love 28 days later and class is as the same type of zombie horror movie. I loved it.
Brad Pitt has to protect his family from a world that has gone viral with an epidemic of zombies. Will he find a cure to protect people from the zombies? That is the story. Not important really, because action and suspense is everything in World War Z and it is done brilliantly. Seen it once and I thought it was a very energetic and impressive zombieflick, but it felt like a formula film. Saw it a second time and was amazed how much I still loved the frenzy of this thriller. Then saw it a third, fourth...10th time and it has become my favorite zombie movie now and the frenzy like energy of this movie is to thank for that. It is truly a rollercoaster of actionscene upon actionscene. Very impressive adrenaline rush. Works better than coffee or redbull. You probably wont wanna go to bed at all after seeing this...What is particularly good about World War Z is that it comes close to a real life scenario in which people turn into zombies. I know this may sound stupid, but most zombie movies are so far removed from any reality that this movie really is a breather. Besides the zombies, anything else in this movie is portrayed very realistically, which makes the feverish longing to escape from the zombies even more intense.Brad Pitt has to protect his own family in the first place and the acting he does is very heartfelt. You want Brad's family to survive, you almost want to warn them when there is another zombie lurking around the corner. And regardless of how many times I have seen it, this movie reaches my gut and heart everytime. That is a good sign.World War Z really has everything to become a classic, because it gave the most chilling realistic portrayal of zombies ever done before. Really cant find any fault with this movie. Acting, photography, soundtrack, everything is just perfect. World War Z is the new standard for the ultimate zombie movie as far as I am concerned. A must see if you are into zombie movies. And a must see if you are into action movies. World War Z is a beast!Special mention to director Marc Foster who is NOT an action movie director at all. Besides 1 James Bond movie he hasnt made any action packed movies. On the contrary all of his movies are mostly shown in the arthouse filmtheatres. Check out: "Stranger than fiction" (weird but original comedy), "Monster's Ball" (racial drama).Maybe it is because of his background in mainly arthouse films that this zombie film rose beyond all the other ones...
