Stilted dialogue and a meandering plot capped by an insouciant epilogue suffocate the originality of what is almost a family-friendly zombie movie.

Clearly a passion project for Pitt.

...the most expensive zombie movie ever made...an odious movie...

World War Z could have ended up going down in flames, but it turned out to be one of the more entertaining movies of the summer.

A mess, but also a surprisingly effective hybrid of action and horror.

World War Z is the zombie film for people who are too afraid to watch zombie films.

It will stress you out. It will mess you up. But you're still going to love living through every last dismembered bit of World War Z.

World War Z is not the complete, absolute disaster tales of its production suggested may come to pass (what with an entirely reshot third act). But that's the limpest compliment that can be given.

Like it or not-and I don't love it-World War Z does get under your skin.

Moviegoers should run, not shamble, towards the nearest multiplex.

This entry into the summer blockbuster season features some really great action sequences mixed with a little more intelligent banter than one might expect from your typical popcorn fare. It's kind of an art house version of a zombie flick.

World War Z didn't need to be a splatter-fest, but for the genre, it seems over-sanitized.

Bottom line, it's pretty entertaining as a summer flick, but it's hard to take seriously, and if you're a true zombie fan, you may be disappointed.

World War Z adds some good ideas to a genre that really needs them, but fails to make me really care about what's going on.

As the conclusion demonstrates, this isn't a hard-core zombie picture. But it's passable by even those standards, using the ticking clock action to balance the lack of traditional gore.

Zombie movies require a certain amount of weirdness or subversiveness to succeed. Turning a zombie pandemic into a generic disaster movie robs the zombies of their dirty, nasty edginess and robs the disaster of its epic scope.

Much less bloody (though, of course, not bloodless and peppered with mild profanity) and much more cerebral than typical horror fare, the Pitt-produced apocalyptic thriller comes about as close as one can to a heart-warming zombie film.

I don't know how else to put it -- it's bad. It's a mess. It's barely functional as a piece of entertainment and not at all as a movie.

While the 3D effect helped increase the intensity of the film, I can only hope a sequel will fill in some of the story that is dangling in some areas.

Scrape off all that spectacle and it's pretty non-original stuff.
