This review is from: World War Z [DVD] (DVD)
I`ll start by saying that this is my favourite movie of 2013. You have 10 minutes at the beginning for the scene to be set with the introduction of Brad Pitt and his family. Then bang, society and the world they (we) know, quickly falls apart as chaos and violence takes over, with everyone desperately battling to somehow survive against the growing numbers of the undead.
To say that this story moves at pace is like saying Usain Bolt can run a bit. There is one marvellous set piece after another, which are all tense and exciting at the same time. My fave scene is on the plane, when the infection starts, I didn`t know what the hell Brad Pitt`s character was going to do, but desperate times call for equally desperate measures and this sequence was resolved with a backs to the wall nowhere to go resolution that was the only logical thing to do. But I am delighted to say that it all works tremendously well.
The well publicised problems during the making of the movie are not transferred to the screen and what we have are a blockbuster that delivers on every level. I was sceptical before I saw the film because of its certification and lack of on screen gore. But I was taken in by the scale of the film that successfully creates a genuinely terrifying global pandemic that threatens the survival of the human race itself.
All I can say is if there is to be a sequel, they`ve got one hell of a job matching this movie.
