I am also a late comer to this film and I have to say, I'm so glad I came to it! I don't do horror films generally, they DO freak me out and zombie films are just my worst nightmare (with the exception of clowns, clowns are just wrong!). I bought this in an effort to be brave and to ogle at Brad Pretty (not a typo). Well I'm truly glad I was being brave. This film is gripping from the start, when I say gripping, I mean superglue! It is literally minutes before you have no choice but to continue.
Aside from looking good, Brad does quite a good job, he's convincing enough and while I want overly in love with his screen wife in the film, I could've been convinced easy enough. The children in the film make the suspense and tension all the more real and Brad does a good job of convincing you he is the doting daddy.
The premise is that his character is a retired UN officer and that as a consequence of the entire world seeming to go rabid, they require him to assist with the "sustained threat". So it starts. The zombies are literally on steroids and super fast. Only Bolt would have half a hope of outrunning them. No more spoilers though, genuinely one of the best zombie films I've seen, less mindless gore, more story, more action, well worth the few hours!
If you're after gore, go elsewhere, but if your after sustained thrills throughout, a decent enough story and Brad Pretty ogles, definitely the film to choose, even for wusses like me who are terrified of zombies :-/

The world ignores the signs of global disaster and the next thing you know there is a world wide zombie (closer to rabies) pandemic.

Brad Pitt,who is now a family man, must save the world to save his family. There is some background noise that would indicate the zombie outbreak might be caused by how man destroys the environment and ignores the signs (global warming, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) The world is thrust into anarchy, while the military exists.

Brad must look for the original virus somewhere in the world to find a cure. We discover N.Korea is unaffected because they pulled everyone's teeth. Israel is unaffected because they have a great wall around their country, but apparently cold isolated places like Greenland are infected. The only reason I point out these inconsistencies is because the film writers went to great length to make the film realistic. Oh yes, if you have a lot of people on a ship, they share beds and sleep in shifts.

I enjoyed the film more as a pandemic film than a foot dragging, flesh eating, living dead, rotting zombie film, because that is what it was. I would say if you don't like Brad Pitt, don't see this film. There is very little screen time that doesn't show his face. Should make for a good video game and a decent sequel.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

*SPOILERS*

I’m sorry, I’m not in the habit of giving overly negative reviews (I usually just forget the rubbish I watch, read, or listen to), but this was just tosh. The beginning was okay, with some fairly tense moments as Pitt and his family awaited rescue in a block of flats (or ‘apartments’, cos it’s America). But after that it just descends into a procession of predictable yet implausible international cut-scenes of varying contrived melodrama; and I couldn’t help but get the feeling that the majority of the fleeting secondary characters that Pitt interacts with along the way might have been better off without Pitt’s presence or intervention – he’s a bit of a klutz at times to be honest (draws attention to family in flats – killed; doesn't turn his fancy satellite phone on 'silent' when sneaking around zombies - uh oh; captain in South Korea commits suicide after saving his ass and being bitten – doing fine before; he kicks coke can to attract zombies at WHO; and my personal favourite, has the ludicrous idea of stacking baggage on a moving plane to stop the zombies coming through the curtain into first class, brilliant). It’s impossible to care about any of the characters as we are flown from continent to continent in a form of box office bingo. There is almost zero character development at any location, even of Pitt, who if it hadn’t been for the involvement of I strongly suspect this movie would have tanked. There’s some action in there if you just want guns and grenades, but even that doesn’t feel that absorbing or intense.

Whilst I love the idea of humanity being saved in possibly the most out of place building in south Wales, the ending is again just laughable in places.

Putting aside the fact that the film abandons most of the lore from the book that made it so appealing, this is still a pretty sub-par zombie film.
Characters come and go and an almost irrelevant pace and the one constant chatracter played by Brad Pitt is poorly developed and any background knowledge you gain of him is picked up through conversations he has with his former employer (who is also under utilised).
Arguably the second most used character is a random IDF soldier who joins Pitt whilst in Jerusalem and I'm almost certain her name is never mentioned.
Therees a huge lack of Zombie action what there is poorly shot, the events are predictable and almost conveniently placed to keep the film moving, or else it would just stall.
Overall, a great opportunity very poorly executed.
