World War Z Movie Review

World War Z is a post-apocalyptic horror movie that starts on a normal day when Gerry Lane and his family are driving through a city and get stuck in traffic. As a former UN inspector, Lane knows this isn’t a normal traffic jam. As police planes buzz in the sky and motorcycle cops ride around erratically on the ground, chaos breaks out in the city. Marc Forster directs World War Z. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Ian Bryce are the producers. Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, and Matthew Fox all play important roles. The RealD 3D and IMAX 3D versions of World War Z came out on June 21, 2013.

Story Analysis

The story centers on Brad Pitt’s character Gerry Lane, who once worked for the United Nations, and is based on Max Brooks’ book. He has since retired and is now living a quiet life with his family. If not stopped, a “disease” that is attacking the world will cause it to become a place where the living and the dead coexist. Yes, you’ve heard this before: No one knows where the disease came from or how to stop it. Lane is asked by the government to help investigate while he travels the world in a race against time to stop a zombie outbreak that is overthrowing armies and governments and threatening to kill humanity. Can Brad save all of humanity? You can guess just as well as I can.

Marc Forster, who made the movie “Quantum of Solace,” keeps you interested and makes you hold your breath for “the next one.” But when the repelis movie is over, you wonder what was really new about it. The best parts of the movie are the amazing fight scenes and special effects. There are hints of shock that will make you poop your pants, but you leave feeling like something is missing.

Star Performance

Brad Pitt does a great job as a husband and father who is sent out to help stop a zombie outbreak that is quickly taking over the world. Even if you don’t like action movies, this one shows how hard it is for Pitt’s character to be away from his family while he does everything he can to protect them.


The action is pretty good, but not amazing. The scenes are enjoyable and well-set up by director Marc Forster, but they feel like they could be better. Except for the part in Jerusalem, which is probably the best part of the movie, and the part on the plane, most of the action happens quickly and without much drama. There are some cool parts, but Jerusalem is the most interesting. It really shows how the zombies move, and it all takes place in broad daylight, so you can see what’s going on. The movie is mostly made up of three or four big action scenes that are linked by dialogue and longer and longer plane and helicopter trips. In some ways, it’s like the book, but it’s different enough that it’s still a missed chance.

Special Effects

There are a lot of really cool special effects in this movie. The movie crew did a great job making the zombies look like real people, which I found quite creepy. The only big problem with this movie was that there was a scene with a lot of zombies that didn’t make any sense.

Final Words

World War Z won’t let you down if you know what you want to see: a scary zombie movie with great action scenes, stunning visual effects, and dead people wandering around the world.
