As my title suggests, that tiny little “Z” at the end of it combined with some 2013 buildings on the back of the picture got me worry “It’s really a zombie movie, a natural genuine Z thing including some cool apocalyptic features? With Brad Pitt? Hmm… Something is not right here! 🙂
I know most of you already saw the movie a month ago, I saw it when it first aired but a personal review is always welcomed, especially for the people who haven’t seen it yet.
So, World War Z is as fast as the zombie horde that explode onto the screen, edge of the seat thriller, some scares (even without gore) and jumpy moments so this movie worked for me. It’s tense, it’s exciting and a little unnerving due to the fact that this film depicts very well how things would play out if a virus was to break out in densely populated cities.
In essence, the pros outweighed the cons, and yes there were cons (not so fluid plot, no foreplay, plus this movie could have been at least an extra hour longer).
As a massive zombie movie fan (like all of us) I was not insulted by the movie, to be honest it nice to have a bit of variation. I’m also a massive apocalyptic end of the world movie fan and that my friends, is what you get. So this movie goes well in our starters menu, keeping it nice and clean with a big commercial sauce all around it. Speaking off, am I the only one that saw Brad Pitt’s role way too relaxed, as if daddy had already read the script and he knows everything will be ok by the end. And if I think even harder (yeap, I’m capable) it’s the perfect warming up zombie and apocalyptic movie for the whole family to watch.
As for my final statement including the “finale” joke…. I’m one of those guys who kind of thought it would be cool to have a zombie apocalypse….UNTIL NOW. This film deals with…well… lighting fast zombies not the ankle dragging ugliest you can just jog away from or to (if you’re armed) so I’m suspending the Apocalypse , sorry everyone, until I’ll figure out how to easily outmaneuver these fast metabolic Z’s. 🙂
And the real final statement goes like that: we should really head back to the zombie classic movies where we can delight ourselves with our green SLOW moving amigos and properly learn things for the days to come …ahahahah 🙂
