World War Z 3D

World War Z 3D

Brad Pitt stars in this blockbuster horror as a U.N. employee called upon to establish the origins of a zombie pandemic. As he travels from the U.S. to Israel, Korea and Wales in search of answers, cities and nations fall under the onslaught of undead, leaving mankind's slim hope of survival resting on his shoulders. Based on the best-selling novel, from the director of Quantum of Solace.

Gerry (Pitt) has retired, but his skills as a U.N. investigator are the only reason he and his family are plucked from the zombie chaos in Philadelphia. Lane is pressed back into service and asked to travel the globe looking for the origins of the zombie outbreak. As he travels he finds himself in one life-threatening situation after another - from a Jerusalem laid siege to a Korean air force base gone suspiciously silent, and even a mid-air zombie encounter. To save his family and humanity, Lane will have to survive increasingly vicious events as well as solving what seems to be an unexplainable unnatural phenomenon.

Entertaining, exhilarating

Firstly, I wouldn't bother seeing in 3D as you probably won't notice, I think this is a conversion,and because its an action movie, you won't have time to see any parallax of 3D. While the movie is perhaps a tad too long, it's an exhilarating ride, and well, we just want to see a zombie film right? What strikes me is the rating in NZ. There is very little...

Not as good as I first thought

I saw World War Z with expectations of a great zombie flick, offering something new to the genre that hadn't yet been done to death (pardon the pun). While watching, I remained optimistic, considering that the high fear factor kept me at the edge of my seat. After the movie, as it all started to fade from memory, I tried to think of a scene that would sum...

Tries to run before it can shamble ...but not bad

To say World War Z had its heart eaten (by a zombie?) in its transition from page to screen might just be a little unfair - whilst I was initially disappointed when I heard about the films departure from the text, I soon got over myself when I took a closer look at just how difficult it would have been to translate. Besides - there hasn't been a decent...

A whole lot of intensity that just needed an ending!

Had potential to be amazing, but shunned the books narrative for a more conventional action movie plot...and you know the lead actor is a producer when the film ends on a freeze of him instead of actually ending...holding out for a sequel are we??

World War Z is a surprisingly competent, tense blockbuster. Just don't expect the book.

With The Walking Dead continuing to be a strong force on television, the Resident Evil franchise somehow still doing good box office business and an unknown amount of zombie indie features infecting direct-to-dvd shelves all the time (with the odd one making it into ... theaters), its not surprising that studios are looking for the next big hit in the...

World War Z Zombies on steriods, the Usan Bolt of zombies!! The die hard zombie fans may say too much info, not enough gore, too much Brad Pitt hair. You get a couple of good scares, but not sure of its ranking within the others 'Zombieland', 'Fido', 'Contagion', 'The Happening', 'Outbreak', 'Resident Evil', 'Warm Bodies' etc...No zombie love here thats...

A surprisingly smart, gripping and imaginative addition to the zombie-movie canon.

Choosing quantity over quality, intensity over tension and big-screen thrills over low-fi shocks – this is probably what the zombie apocalypse will actually look like.

The result looks less like a horror flick and more like a thinking man’s action-thriller – the ‘Newsnight’ of zombie films (you’ll know if that’s your cup of tea).

While some of World War Z is rotten, the whole stands as a punchy, if conventional action thriller.

Pitt delivers a capable performance in an immersive apocalyptic spectacle... Waves of startling action counterbalance standard one-man-saves-the-day Hollywood heroics.

This nightmarish travelogue is coy about gore, but it’s still an effective thrill-ride. If the sequel happens, let’s hope it delivers some actual combat.
