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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

World War Z seemed tired all the way through: It just didn't have a freshness or energy that brought something new to the genre.

. . .if nothing else, the film will convince you that humans are kind of stupid.

World War Z>/i> is a breathless roller-coaster that bites down when you want it to and mercifully releases so you can munch more popcorn before the next attack.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 14, 2016
A mishmash of epic action, close quarter combat, and family drama that feels neither grand nor intimate, just confused.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 10, 2016
Sometimes it just made me long for the sight of a lunatic zombie gnawing on the leg of some virgin in a backwoods cabin.
April 17, 2016
An atmospheric, frequently creepy zombie thriller that strikes a nice balance between horror and action-adventure, leaning on familiarity but never abusing it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

But for those A.D.H.D.-afflicted adolescents and exceptionally low-I.Q. adults, I hope you're happy with what you asked for.
July 15, 2015
The action is unscannable spinach, the characters are dull, and the climax is the very pinnacle of anti-climax.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 23, 2015
It's actually quite remarkable this movie turned out even remotely good, considering the horrendous production reports and the reshooting of the entire last act.

March 23, 2015
Action trumps horror in this fast-paced zombie thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 7, 2014
The film works mainly on the performances of Pitt, and a strong ensemble cast that lend some credibility to a somewhat disjointed script.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

World War Z is a string of unrelenting, harrowing sequences that continually manage to top one another.
January 3, 2014
[A] lousy, ugly-looking, intensely illogical movie.
December 31, 2013
Danny Boyle (28 Days Later) and Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) did so much more with less nearly a decade ago.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 15, 2013
There are two distinct films here and both are successful on their own terms, but more gritty survivalist story over world-spanning question resolution would have been preferable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 13, 2013
That it never quite coheres is the point.
November 1, 2013
Action-heavy zombie movie shows traces of smarts
October 18, 2013
Despite all appearances, World War Z isn't really a zombie movie. It's a disaster movie, one in which the agent of apocalypse just happens to be walking (and running) human corpses, rather than glaciers or a meteor strike.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
