Excerpt: Former UN investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is waiting in his car together with the rest of his family for the daily traffic jams of Philadelphia to move a few meters forward when they suddenly see an explosion ahead.
Excerpt: The scars of a tumultuous production are on full display in World War Z , Marc Forster's utterly innocuous adaptation of Max Brooks's zombie-apocalypse bestseller, but the seemingly endless rewrites and reshoots hardly explain or excuse the overt and largely unconvincing heroic image given to the...
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.
Conclusion: Although the Internet has been buzzing as of late with Brad Pitt and talks of all the unused ideas for for a proposed trilogy of films, all that really matters to me at the end of the day is how I feel about this film.

World War Z:ssä kulminoituukin miehen taito yhdistää toiminta ja ihmisläheinen draama vaikuttavaksi viihdekokonaisuudeksi.
Conclusion: Die logische Konsequenz des Mainstream-Erfolgs von The Walking Dead ist ein waschechter Kino-Blockbuster mit Zombies. Und mit Brad Pitt. Das sind keine schlechten Voraussetzungen, und den Titel des teuersten Untoten-Massakers aller Zeiten schnappt sich World War Z locker.
