This review is a little late considering the movie was released more than a month ago. I watched it today and it was superb! So, here’s my review, better late than never.
World War Z is an end of the world/horror film. The world gets over run by zombies and the story followers the life of Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family as they try to survive.
I’ll break down into points what I like about the movie.
1. First of all the plot was great. The story was good and it was fast. The movie does not slow down at any point and they have done a really good job by not including scenes that seem out-of-place.
2. The revamp of our ideas on zombies. The ones in this can run really fast and jump and break down doors and that makes them extra scary.
3. The suspense. I haven’t seen any movie in a while that has so many points where it makes you think “OMG,Whats gona hapen now!! ”
Here’s a short outline of the story. Gerry Lane, a former UN employee gets stuck in middle of traffic along with his family when the outbreak hits the city. The number of infected rise rapidly as each person who gets bit turns into a zombie. The family escapes to Newark and later gets rescued and is taken to a fleet of US Navy vessels. Gerry is asked to accompany a scientist to find the source of the outbreak.
They travel to South Korea and are attacked by zombies.They get rescued by survivors in the base. Gerry learns that he needs to go to Jerusalem because it looks like the people there knew about the chance of the outbreak beforehand. The safe zone there also comes under attack a short while after Gerry gets there.He makes it out on a plane but is injured when the plane crashes. Okay. That’s all from me. One last line for the outline – they find a way to fight back.
It was a really, really good movie to watch and I loved the suspense. Those of you who haven’t seen it yet put it on your list and watch it soon.
Will read the book soon and I’ll a review of that too.
