Movie Review - World War Z

My fiance sucked up his hatred of all the movies I pick to watch in theaters and treated me to World War Z yesterday. He was NOT a fan of Warm Bodies and to be honest, neither was I. I was disappointed in that one but in World War Z... I was not.

It was fantastic.

And Jerry wasn't disappointed either. He didn't LOVE love it, but he said it was MUCH better than the other movies I've picked. It was exciting and suspenseful and in 3D it was just awesome. Brad Pitt did much better than I'd expected too. I don't really care for Brad Pitt anymore, but I think he was stellar in this movie.

I like how the Zombies weren't all shambling, slow moving... it was a lot creepier and scarier because their movements were jerky and weird and they were super fast. It was like they had the rabies virus on crack. And there's a great twist at the end of the movie that'll keep you on the edge of your seat.

Now, I've never read the book by Max Brooks, and I'm glad that I haven't. I have a tendency to rip movies to shreds if I watch them after I've read the book. It annoys the heck out of whoever I'm there with and totally ruins the movie for them.

I definitely recommend this for everyone. Ok, well, maybe everyone over the age of 13 or 14. Whether you've read the book or not it's a great movie to see. Fans of all different kinds of zombies will enjoy this one I think. Go check it out!


  1. Great review! I saw it this weekend also, and I loved it!

    I have read the book so I was wondering going into this how it would be. I knew that the book itself would, in my opinion, not have made a very good movie. (The book is written like a war documentary.)

    I like how they just focused on one person's story and incorporated the events in the book.

    I have read there is going to be a sequel and I hope it is a new character so another story and POV can be seen like in the book.

    Sorry for such a long comment!

  2. READ THE BOOOK! It blows the movie out of the water (as books tend to do) BUT in Pitt's defense, he really wanted to make this wasn't like "Hey this will be a cool blockbuster." He poured himself into this project and wanted it to be made well. There is so much in the book I was hoping to see on screen but I know it's hard to translate it to screen and of course there are so many fingers in the pot, it's no wonder there are any decent movies out there. Listen to any podcast or look up Kevin Smith's rantings about a certain hollywood producer that wanted a stupid giant spider robot in a movie. So I'm sure the screenwriters had to pick and choose which stories to really feature in this movie to maybe catch new fans or encourage current fans of the book to buy into this film. All that being said, it was ok. Nothing amazing but entertaining. And read the book, everyone DO IT! :)

  3. Even though it’s better than I expected it to be, it’s still poor in its script. Nice review.
