"thinking man's zombie thriller"
5 stars"

This is a highly entertaining movie that has it fair share of scares. It's based on the premise of a pandemic spreading at an alarming rate. What sets this story apart is the different manner which different countries attempt to deal with the spread of the virus each showing it's strengths and limitations. These are not your slow rambling run of the mill zombies but frantic, fast and self destructive killers not unlike 28 days laters or legend. I personally found the solution flawed but that's an occupational hazzard of watching zombie movies when actually involved in disease control. That said, this is a must see with great effects, engaging story and good acting.

Description

World War Z is a 2013 British-American apocalyptic sci-fi film, based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks.

“…distinct, off-beat and fearsomely entertaining” Cinemaphile

Life for former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane and his family seems content. Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies.

After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease. What follows is a perilous trek around the world where Lane must brave horrific dangers and long odds to find answers before human civilization falls.

World War Z Review
By Rolling Stone, Peter Travers

"Tension, not gore, fuels this zowie zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead crowd may be bummed by the relative scarcity of rotting flesh and leaking pustules. But World War Z is still as smart, shifty and scary as a starving zombie ready to chow down on you, baby, you.

Surprised? Me, too. Rumors of reshoots, rewrites and production problems have plagued director Marc Forster’s nearly $200 million film adaptation of the 2006 novel by Max Brooks (son of Mel) since filming began in 2011. Screw the toxic buzz. The addictively exciting World War Z comes ready to rock. It grabs you hard – no mercy.

A dynamite Brad Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a former United Nations troubleshooter faced with a global zombie invasion. The dead don’t walk, they sprint. You can feel the oozing buggers even when you can’t see them. The opening attack in Philadelphia makes mob panic palpable. Gerry barely escapes with his wife, Karen (Mireille Enos of The Killing), and their two young daughters.

He finds temporary safe harbor on an aircraft carrier, based in the Atlantic and serving as a U.N. command center. There’s a catch: His family can stay only if Gerry goes out into the hot zone in search of answers and maybe a cure.

That’s the movie, following Gerry as he trots the globe. Israel and Korea are surviving better than most, for reasons I won’t spoil. If you want to go deeper, dive into Brooks’ spark plug of a book, subtitled An Oral History of the Zombie War and full of political provocations the film skips in favor of jolts. What, you expected more from Hollywood? Be grateful that Forster doesn’t screw up like he did with Quantum of Solace.

His jolts may be PG-13-safe and thematically disconnected, but that zombie lurch from coach to first-class on a commercial jet is a nerve-fryer. Ditto the finale at a lab in Wales. As producer and star of World War Z, Pitt has pulled a potential disaster from the fire. The suspense is killer."
