A nice dramatic piece with good momentum. Not a great movie, or even a great zombie movie, but worth checking out if you like parables about pandemics and the beautiful and ugly ways people deal with them.
Not even remotely similar to the excellent book, but still a solid story.

Entertaining at best. Not one of Brad's best performances. His hairsprayed hair bugged me! The acting was just so, so. I defintiely do not recommend it for families with children under 12.

This is a fast paced action movie, Brad Pitt does a great job as an investigator seeking a way to save the world. This is day of the dead, meets Out Break with a little bit of mission impossible mixed in with out all the cool gadgets. This is a see it twice movie.

I really looked forward to seeing this one. There are a few good scenes that caused me to jump a bit, but overall, it was kind of disinteresting, with weak character development and a predictable ending. Great CGI effects and zombie makeup, though. The most memorable characters were Pitt's character "Gerry", a female Israeli soldier "Sedene", and two unnamed zombies in particular who really steal the show in the last third of the movie. While I wouldn't tell anyone to avoid seeing tis one, I also would recommend not getting your hopes up for a really great zombie movie - if there IS such a thing.

I went to see this movie just today with mediocre expectations after reading the critic and some fan reviews. But boy were they wrong! This movie is right up there with the walking dead. It has thrills and chills, but just warning you now, this movie is not for children 12 and under as I see it. I somewhat enjoy a fun scare as much as the next guy but for kids this can be a huge scar for life. So yes, World War Z is nothing like the book, but it's absolutely stunning, and I say go! Have fun!
