World War Z: My Movie Review

World War Z is an American horror film released on June 2013, running on 116 minutes, with a production budget of $190 million, but made a box  office grossing income of $540 million. A film based on the 2006 novel of the same name authored by an American novelist Max Brooks. This film starred Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former investigator from United Nations who was self-obliged to travel the world to find a way to stop a zombie pandemic that’s happening all throughout the globe. He started from Seoul, South Korea to Jerusalem, Israel, until the plane he rode in, which is Belarus Airways crashed, because he blew a grenade to survive from passengers-turned-zombies.

This movie is also cast by Mireille Enos (Connie O’Mara of Gangster Squad) as Karin Lane, Gerry’s wife; Israeli actress Daniella Kertesz (Onie of After Death) as Segen, an Israeli soldier who accompanies Gerry during an escape from Jerusalem where their skyscarping fortress walls called Salvation Gate was breached by zombies; James Badge Dale (Savin of Iron Man 3) as Captain Speke, a soldier who was stationed at Camp Humphreys in South Korea; producer turned actor Ludi Boeken as Jurgen Warmburnn, the director of Mossad, an Israeli national intel agency, who helped prepare Israel’s pre-emptive defenses; Matthew Fox (Patrick of Extinction) a US Air Force Parajumper sent by Umotoni to rescue the Lanes in Newark; award winning young actress Sterling Jerins (Judy Warren of The Conjuring) as Constance Lance, the younger daughter of Gerry Lane; Abigail Hargrove (Kylie of The Firebird) as Rachel Lane, Gerry’s eldest daughter; Fabrizio Zacharee Guido (Demetrio Hernandez of Welcome to the Family) as Thomas, a young boy from a Spanish family who escaped with Gerry from a building haunted by zombies; and Ruth Negga (Lady Taria of Warcraft / Raina aka Flowers of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD) as WHO doctor who helped Gerry Lane on where to get the pathogen that may stop the zombies from chasing them.

After many changes, deals and staff assignments during previous years, this film will certainly has its own sequel since just this last June 24, 2017, David Fincher was confirmed as the new director of the sequel as announced by Paramount, with Brad Pitt still as the returning role.

This movie is really heart-pounding as zombies here are very agile and savage. Though I don’t watch Walking Dead and haven’t watch any episodes yet, this one will certainly tantamount to it. If you easily gets scared watching zombies then this one’s not good for you, since watching this solitarily will give you goosebumps and after effects (haha but not for me). But if you’re brave enough and enjoy watching this zombie thing, these fictional creatures are just nothing. It only depends on how you deal with it using your mind.

So since this movie is remarkably good and exhilarating, with heart-pounding scenes, I’ll give 5-star for its rating with high-five and two thumbs-up. It’s one of the best zombie movies long before Train to Busan made it as one of the worldwide grossing hits. Waiting for the next bigger World War against Zombies soon!!!

  1. I saw it on cable. it is really boring. I thought it sucked. actually the best zombie movies is the Dawn of the Dead movie, and its remakes over the years. they are all good, as well as Night of the Living Dead, which is old, black and white film, which looks like a classic film. these are the only zombie movies i tolerate.. the others are garbage.

    • I respect your insights…You’re right Dawn of the Dead is much better when it comes to shocking scenes, only that this one has lots of stories and talks about the cure on how to resist and fight zombie outbreak…but I like the story of this one coz it adds up a little family drama, which teaches a lesson that when it comes to family’s safety, one cannot avoid sacrifices…and Brad Pitt nailed that character role…this movie still deserves two-thumbs up for me. 🙂
