World War Z Movie Reviews
User reviews on World War Z
I don't care what any of my friends say - Brad Pitt is NOT old. He's still as hunky and as gorgeous as he ever was, even with the goldilocks haricut (if any guy can pull it off, he can). The thing that I appreciated most about him in the movie, however, was not his looks but the way his character made protecting his family just as important as protecting the planet. It was really heartwarming and made me love him even more lol. I guess Angelina and their kids have been doing a good job with him. I was almost shocked by how much I liked this movie given that I generally don't care much for zombies (i think it really only worked in Michael Jackson's Thriller video back in the 80s and never again since- and no, I haven't seen The Walking Dead) but the story in this film doesn't depend so much on zombies as it does on human beings racing to save the planet. A solid B .
So I've been watching how this movie is rated over at rottentomatoes for almost a week now - and the trend as the movie gets closer to release is kind of disturbing. It started out in the high-mid 80s and now it's settled in the mid 60s. Hmmm...ok. Still, keeping an open mind. Then I saw the flick at a late night screening last night and was BULOWN AWAY! Imagine a movie version of Walking Dead that combines elements of Man of Steel and The Dark Knight - that's basically what World War Z is. It's super thrilling, fast paced, and full of details that make the story seem like it's actually taking place. I also really liked the character played by Matthew Fox (the guy from Lost) because it made the movie a real nail biter in the scenes he was in. Brad Pitt is really good as well, as are the actresses who play his wife and daughters. I think this movie is destined to be No.1.
