World War Z - 3D

High-Def Digest
15 September 2013
  • Conclusion: In spite of several problems and delays to the production, Marc Forster and his team manage to deliver good blockbuster entertainment with a decent level of smarts. Starring Brad Pitt as a U.N. investigator hunting for "patient zero" at the height of a worldwide zombie-like pandemic, the film offers some stunning visuals, riveting action and a few surprisingly suspenseful moments.

World War Z

Cinema Blend
21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Max Brooks's World War Z is probably the most serious zombie book ever written, an "oral history of the zombie war" that tracks across continents and multiple disasters a viral outbreak that makes monsters of the dead. The movie based on it, also called World War Z , might be the most serious zombie movie ever made. That's pretty much the only similarity it shares with Brooks's novel, but surprisingly enough, that's OK.

World War Z

AV Club
20 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Back in the early ’80s, George Romero—the lord of the undead, the godfather of walking-corpse cinema—dared to dream big. Early drafts of Day Of The Dead , the third and then-final chapter of his Dead franchise, promised a bona fide horror epic, complete with a sprawling cast of characters and an opening act set in a city overrun with flesh-eaters.

  • Summary: Amongst all the chatter that the zombie concept is played out, consider that the closest these horror staples have come to a blockbuster depiction is the Resident Evil series – something that leaves ample scope for improvement. As the title suggests, World War Z follows the cascading plague of undead around the globe via a series of clashes, stalemates and counter-attacks, and from its broadest, most removed perspective the film offers an enticing blend of action,...

  • Conclusion: 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.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
20 June 2013
  • Excerpt: "World War Z" is an apocalyptic thriller that spans the globe. What it lacks in gore and horror, it makes up for with epic, large-scale action sequences, and the brisk pacing is indicative of a film that has favoured cinematic spectacle over the socio-political commentary of its source material. Although the story may feel somewhat predictable as our hero evades a procession of close calls, it nevertheless remains an entertaining enough adventure.
