World War Z Movie Review

Attributes: Movie Reviews

Not quite long back it was all about Vampires and the frenzy for the paranormal still hasn’t waned, it is indeed the dawn of the Zombie movies. So what do you expect out of a Zombie movie that stars Brad Pitt? Well something different right? Different it is, for sure; but not exactly in a good way.

Director Marc Forster of ‘Quantum of Solace’ fame manages to keep you hooked on, making sure you hold your breath for the ‘next’ but when the film ends, you wonder exactly what was so new about it? The saving grace of the film are the superb action sequences & visual effects. There are flashes (& fleshes) of surprises that will scare your pants off but you leave with a feeling that there is something missing.

The star cast is a mixed ensemble; of course lead by Brad Pitt. There are moments that highlight his acting skills but even the pseudo-impact one liners, the dialogue delivery, and a roster of supporting actors or the misplaced humor cannot eventually save the monotony of the film. There are some inferences form the Max brooks book of the same title but the movie lacks the multi-perspective take of the book. The movie is void of a heart figuratively and literally possibly because Zombies are dead people after all (pun intended)

The story, based on Max Brooks’s Novel follows United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) who has retired and now lives a peaceful life with his family. The world has been attacked by a ‘disease’ that will convert Earth into a world of the living-dead if not stopped. Nobody knows the origin of the disease or how to control it (yes, you have heard it before). Lane is called upon by the Government to help them investigate when he traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself. Can Brad save the world? Your guess is as good as mine.

If your expectations are clear – you want to watch a scary zombie movie with great action sequences, breath-taking visual effects and want to see dead people walking around the globe – World War Z will not disappoint you.

3 / 5 Stars overall.
