World War Z 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on World War Z 3D
I really enjoyed watching this film and recommend seeing it in the theaters. I found the film to be very thrilling, interesting and quite smart. We decided to see it in 3D and I think it was totally worth it, it looked great and it definitely enhanced my experience. I enjoyed the script a lot and Brad Pitt was wonderful as always. If you like watching films and TV shows about zombies you will love this film. I loved the set pieces in this film, they were incredible and I loved seeing the film in 3D. Overall, this film is very entertaining and it is definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
Somebody told me while I was waiting in line for tickets that Brad Pitt is 50 now - 50?!!? Really. Wow. I just couldn't believe it. I still think of him as the hunky guy from Thelma and Louise and as the pretty Angel of Death in Meet Joe Black - how can that guy be 50??? It certainly helps that he still looks all of 35. He really brings the bacon in this movie, though - I love that he is cast in the heroic role that you would normally associate with someone bigger like The Rock or Vin Diesel. I mean the guy has to save the entire planet and he has no super powers. All he has is his expertise in foreign relations as a guy who used to work for the United Nations. Brad itt turns in his best work here since Moneyball and I think he probably ghost directed the film too (it feels kind of disjointed at the end when the movie was scrapped and reshot based on reports) and I think Pitt may have taken over.
It’s a bit of a stretch to believe that one guy can save the planet if he isn’t a superhero a la Superman or Bruce Wayne. But the movie doesn’t seem overly concerned with this little nugget of disbelieved suspension. Instead, it focuses on the human element of Lane’s character – he’s flawed, he’s scared, he’s a father, and he’s a man who’s willing to die for his family. It’s not innovative per se, but it is riveting for most of its duration. Whether or not this helps World War Z escape its production plagues, however, remains to be seen.
Also, Brad Pitt deserves a lot of credit for mounting such a big movie. It's a colossal story on a ginormous canvas. This took guts and glory.
World War Z has been in the news a lot prior to its release – and mostly for all the wrong reasons. The last third of the film had to be scrapped and reshot – which, as most of Hollywood calls it, is a disaster in motion. But lo! Brad Pitt to the rescue! The movie works (mostly) and despite some bizarre plot twisting in the middle that forces us to believe that the entire planet can be saved by one man, it is actually a relatively intelligent zombie thriller as these things go in Hollywood.
Zombies, viruses, and mayhem are upon us – like all of us - and the only guy who can save the day is Gerry Lane (Pitt) who used to work for the United Nations. His plan is to traverse the globe and marshall resources that will help him identify what is causing all the chaos. It’s a standard big action thriller with a brain.
