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.
August 27, 2019
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.
January 26, 2019
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.
September 7, 2017
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.
September 5, 2017
Scrape off all that spectacle and it's pretty non-original stuff.
August 18, 2017
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.
August 17, 2017
. . .if nothing else, the film will convince you that humans are kind of stupid.
August 8, 2016
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.
July 14, 2016
A mishmash of epic action, close quarter combat, and family drama that feels neither grand nor intimate, just confused.

Sometimes it just made me long for the sight of a lunatic zombie gnawing on the leg of some virgin in a backwoods cabin.
