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.

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

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.

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.

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

Hollywood executives can sleep a little easier at night, once again content in the knowledge that throwing enough money at a problem can solve it.

The last third is pretty solid, if generic, zombie horror; it's unfortunately just stuck in a clunky mess of an attempted blockbuster.

World War Z is rotten to the putrid core, which is amazing considering the amount of writers that had a chance to get this story right. Man, I'm not even going to bother with a zombie pun on this one.

We've seen it all before and seen it done far, far better. E.g., 28 Weeks Later, the Holy Grail of the zombie-contagion genre.

June 19, 2013
Thrilling special effects and a global scale almost make up for World War Z's perfunctory zombie movie cliches.

The appropriation of Brooks' name and source material seems more like an attempt to manufacture buzz and fan base attendance (subsequent disappointment and rage be damned) through the most shallow, cynical means possible.

A zombie film made by a parents group. A sanitised entry into the genre to ensure that twelve year-olds can lap up the action without mum or dad having to wash their sheets in the morning
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 26, 2013
Has some effective, genuinely scari-fying moments, but too often comes across as a bloated, overwrought affair too big and messy for any one movie to contain.
June 23, 2013
A film that cost about as much to produce as Man of Steel culminates in Brad Pitt walking along a corridor, having broken a vending machine.

World War Z bucks the current trend in summer blockbusters by feeling weirdly understuffed. It's an episodic adventure without enough episodes.

Other than the CGI eye candy, which is intense, there is little in the way of layers and complexity to this portrait of pandemonium.

Forster and co. have produced what just might be the dullest zombie movie ever made.

Totally uninvolving. Certainly the least scary zombie film I've ever seen.

When the end result is so inconsistent, it's hard not to wonder how things would have turned out if the filmmakers had trusted their initial inspiration.

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.
