World War Z Reviews

The reviews are in.  Hear what everyone is saying about WWZ-


It's just a jumped-up midnight movie that thinks "stuff jumping out at you and making loud noises" equals horror and "perfect human being impervious to everything" equals hero.

What's missing is a sense of loss - the horror and grief that should be etched on the faces of the living.

The movie essentially becomes little more than cool set pieces ... jammed together and interspersed with underdeveloped family-strife scenes.

Here's the oddest element in this tale of Hollywood fine-tuning run rampant: the movie is pretty good -- the summer's most urgent, highest-I.Q. action picture.

It's an anemic actioner that fosters excitement like dead limbs as it lumbers toward a conclusion.

For all its effectiveness at portraying the horror of possible human extinction, the film's actual humans are so soulless that this could just as well be the movie version of the video game Plants vs. Zombies.

An intelligent, riveting and terrifying thriller.

In the leading role, Brad Pitt is a good fit as the film's strong yet reluctant hero.

Not "the ultimate zombie movie." But quite good, and the opening 25 minutes will leave you breathless.

Brad Pitt's hero lacks personality. All we know is that he loves his family, but no one has given him or his relations any exceptional qualities.

Itbecomes increasingly difficult to pin any message at all on Marc Forster's astonishingly expensive and extensively re-written (and re-shot) blockbuster. And you know what? I didn't mind in the least.

World War Z is not a horror film, nor is it a deeply thought-provoking political thriller. But it is a fine action picture, and a good Brad Pitt movie.

Whether it's due to the presence of a true star like Brad Pitt or the sheer force of the first 2/3 of the story, "World War Z" is a good time at the movies.

It's an adventure that literally spans the globe at a breakneck pace before shifitng into a tense, suspense-filled final frame.

Not many brains get munched, but plenty of people use them.

Marc Foster brings a perfect balance to all of the elements found in World War Z. It's scary yet not in a manipulative way, grim yet never overbearing in its bleakness, and juggles the intimate with the epic.

Zombies in Philly, zombies in Jerusalem - even zombies in the projects of Newark! Innovative and terrifying - 'World War Z' is arguably the best zombie film since 1968's 'Night of the Living Dead.'

A chewy, capable, mainstream flick which accommodates both those suffering from zombie fatigue and those who can't get enough.

This nightmarish travelogue is coy about gore, but it's still an effective thrill-ride.
