The producers (Pitt among them) are using the current zombie craze to spoon feed us how to survive a worldwide viral attack. Great dialogue with thoughtful words of wisdom. Very interesting where Pitt finds the help and who he needs to listen to as he gets to the "solution". I have seen this twice and looking forward to owning it one day.

What I liked best about this movie is that it could have easily been a bloody, gory shock fest, but it wasn't. This one was focused on a viable storyline - what happens when a global epidemic threatens to end humanity? How do you find a cure? I don't need to see zombies eating faces to find out, and luckily, this movie avoided both that and unnecessary cussing. Sure, there were moments that made me jump, and others that had my anxiety level through the roof, but it was all for the sake of the story.
Brad Pitt was believable as a dad torn between duty to the U.N. (and the world) and his need to protect his family. I thought the dialogue was well done, especially in the plane scene with the scientist explaining Mother Nature. The cinematography was breath-taking.
Definitely a go-to movie for teens/adults.

I really enjoyed it and wished it were longer and included more stuff. Or maybe a part II was coming. Yes, yes its goes on a different take than the book and I'm one of those people who gets annoyed when the movie is different from the book but I really enjoyed this movie! And it makes me want to read the book again. Good job BP.

World War Z was another Hollywood attempt to promote a political agenda with it's portrayal of the United Nations as the all knowledgeable and controlling world body to manage a solution to the zombie epidemic. Basically, this movie was a very lame attempt to legitimize the value of the United Nations. The United Nations has been a corrupt dismal failure throughout the world when it comes to humanitarian and military police actions. It will take more than a bad movie like World War Zombie to fix the track record of the United Nations.
Once you get through the pathetic political message, the acting was marginal and the story line lacking of substance. The best part of the movie was the special effects, but many of these scenes were to unrealistic to take seriously.
Overall a D+

I like how the focus was kept on the mission of finding the source/cure/way to hold out. No gratuitous gore scenes. Special effects were awesome! Definitely recommend it to my friends.
