World War Z (Action 2013)

Yeah the book was so much better than this movie, but that wasn't too hard to predict. This movie was OK but nothing too spectacular. I would say that it felt like a more visually stunning version of 28 Weeks Later in that it had a plot line and main characters.

The film really had nothing to do with the book at all. All the characters were different, the story was not journal-based, and hell the zombies themselves were way too fast in this movie. It was essentially what one would expect from a big budget zombie flick; no originality.

Unfortunately I have to say that it's one of those that can watched on a lazy weekend while multitasking because all you see is Brad Pitt traveling from one place to another while trying to find a cure. Some locations were cool but everything happens so fast that you don't have time to ground yourself and care about anything or anyone.
Rating - B
