The ultimate strength of World War Z is its ability to consistently create ticking-clock situations for its characters after laying out very specific parameters.

Carried by Pitt's performance, "World War Z" is a sometimes intense story of the rise of the undead.

Despite speculation predicting an on-screen disaster, this is a rather thrilling and fun big-budget zombie film let down by the re-shot finale.

World War Z is often suspenseful and exciting even in the midst of clashing cinematic styles that were often incongruous but somehow come together eventually.

July 8, 2013
The spectacular set-piece highlights were revealed in the trailers; what's left is nothing that hasn't been done much better many times before by Romero, Danny Boyle, even AMC.

The movie fares best in its quiet moments, between Pitt and wife Mirelle Enos, or in a climax set in the antiseptic maze of a Cardiff science lab.

An intelligent Zombie Apocalypse film, starring Brad Pitt no less. Boy, I sure did not see that one coming.

the film's best thrills almost always rely on the terror of space rapidly collapsing, leaving you no place else to run-the very essence of panic, which is the film's primary emotional register

...distinct, off-beat and fearsomely entertaining, and functions on a canvas that reaches far beyond what we are used to in pictures of this nature.

If only it could have taken itself less seriously. If it had the cartoonish atmosphere of, say, '2012,' then 'World War Z' would have been a silly, fun popcorn movie.

A roaring good, bloody block party with The Undead.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
June 28, 2013
Well-crafted, action-packed, and most impressively, not overly gory horror thrill ride... makes a credible case that even in the ubiquitous zombie milieu, less can be more.
