MOVIE REVIEW: World War Z

Hi everyone! World War Z is a surprisingly gripping and entertaining movie!

WORLD WAR Z


World War Z is adapted from the book of the same name and the movie wastes no time getting right into the action. Eff character development and let's get straight to the zombie mayhem is what this movie is all about -- and that's a bloody good thing. Because in a movie like this, you just want to see zombies wreaking havoc and you couldn't care less about the human characters. Well, at least I didn't.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ZOMBIE MOVIES?


What sets this movie apart from 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later and the Resident Evil movies is that the scale of this is massive and it feels 'real'. It feels like if a zombie apocalypse did happen, this is how it would turn out.  

The movie's set-pieces are mighty impressive and so well-staged that you can't help but feel like you're a part of the movie, trying to outrun a horde of zombies.

WHAT'S BAD?
I know the producers have to scale down the blood and gore so it doesn't become R-rated, but there's a serious lack of any blood displayed at all.

Probably the only bit of red you'll see in the entire movie.
Brad Pitt is also superhuman in this. He survives a death-defying sequence that makes you go 'WTF'. But because the sequence he survives in is so awesome, you actually forgive the filmmakers for it. Well, at least I did.

WHAT ELSE IS BAD?
Actress Mireille Enos, who isn't believable as Brad Pitt's wife.
The actress who plays Brad Pitt's wife. Let me get straight to the point here. She's not good-looking enough for me to believe that she's actually Brad Pitt's wife in the movie. She's so unattractive that it became a distraction. That's a mean thing to say, I know, but it must be said.

My brain couldn't compute it, so I started thinking that since Brad Pitt is a producer of the movie, he probably deliberately cast a less-than-good-looking person so he wouldn't have an affair with her like he did with Angelina Jolie during Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Now that would make perfect sense.

And plus, it's a movie with zombies. The human characters have almost zero character development, so you might as well cast someone who is at least somewhat good-looking. I know, I know, I'm being very superficial, but hey, it's a movie where I'm already looking at ugly-ass zombies, I don't need to look at ugly-ass humans as well.


WHAT'S GOOD?
The final twenty minutes are incredibly suspenseful. I'll say no more and let you check it out for yourself. 

Go on, check out the movie!

MY RATING: 8 out of 10
