3.0 out of 5 stars Pitt vs Zombies, 7 Nov. 2013
This review is from: World War Z [DVD] (DVD)
There's a lot that I liked about WWZ, from the manner the film utilises its fast operating zombies as a symbol of the often panicking speed and tautness of everyday life, to supporting characters who are introduced only to be killed off without any of the bombast you'd have had to suffer had the movie been directed by a Zack Snyder or Michael Bay
Littered with unexpected touches - the viewer's shock at a would be suicide jump by a certain character who dreads he's been infected and can't bear to see his family in danger, a female Israeli IDF soldier who becomes an surprising associate of Gerry's and who isn't saddled with a lame intimate sub-plot between her and the star, a nuclear blast viewed from the cockpit of a plane in which no words, no explanation are offered and don't need to be (at this point in the movie it truly looks like game over for humanity) and perhaps best of all a last act that eschews the vacuous spectacle of so many summer blockbusters and goes instead for a tense, low-key and genuinely endearing climax that I'm happy to acknowledge had me on the edge of my seat.
O.K., so theres too much exposition and lots of below par acting by some of the minor cast..it also suffers from not being gritty enough at times but this will not send you to sleep in a zombified state. Worth a look. It is nowhere near as bad as the trailer suggests!
