This movie is good. It has a lot of horror movie cliches, and there's a lot of deus ex machinas in the plot. However, it's actually a good zombie movie. The lab scene is terrifying, the actors do a great job and the plot actually makes more sense. If you haven't seen a lot of horror movies, then this one is a good recommendation.

This movie was very well done. Love the special effects, the acting, the plot.
It was a very enjoyable zombie movie...but with two big chinks.
First off, the camera movements. Most of the time I couldn't piece together what was going on because the movie kept cutting to different characters. It became equivalent to watching strobe lights.
The second chink is the ending. It was so...unsatisfactory.

I would watch it again, but I'd have to prepare myself for the headache I will get from the camera movements,

Worst zombie movie ever

A bland, forgetable zombie flick. Its not unentertaining, its pretty much what you'd expect from a movie called "World War Z."

World War Z is a big-budget, zombie movie based off of the best-selling book, in name only, that follows a UN Diplomat, played by Brad Pitt, who has to traverse the globe in search of a cure after a devastating outbreak begins wiping out the world's population. To start, this film has almost nothing in common with the book's structure, and mainly just cherry-picks scenarios to put Pitt's character into, which is fine, but it's an odd choice to even share the name apart from it sounding cool. This definitely surpassed my low expectations considering all of the production troubles it went through and it amazingly turned out to be a really cool zombie flick, even though it was neither scary or violent. The production went over-budget, the script was unfinished when filming began, and after screening the film for the studio, they immediately cried foul and had the entire third act re-shot, for the benefit of the film because that is easily the most intense part of the movie. The writing is the real strong-point here with some truly clever characters and ideas, and for once they actually call the damn things, "zombies"! There is a bit too much shaky cam for my taste and the CGI zombies don't look good at all, but if you're looking for an intense apocalyptic thrill ride, you can do far worse. Fun fact: this is Brad Pitt's highest grossing film of his career...that is just sad.

I loved the cast and story. A little mundane.

Not the type of film you would expect when it's related to zombies. World War Z is instead a story-driven movie, with, of course, a lot of help by the brutal, nail-biting, zombie action it has to offer. Keep in mind this has a lot of gore, so it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

World War Z is by far the best zombie film i watched after ZOMBIELAND . With Brad Pitts stellar perfomance and many awe strucking moments WORLD WAR Z is a must watch

Fast-paced zombie flick with brains and great visuals.

A gripping apocalyptic zombie summer blockbuster with an urgent message on the unity of global humanity in the face of a pandemic nefarious outbreak of any form.

78% World War Z is filled with glorious excitement from start to finish, making it a welcome addition to the zombie genre, even if it doesn't stay entirely true to the source material.

Thought it was worth watching but didn't have much plot detail.

After watching World War Z I didn't know if I was pleased or disappointed, First of all there's not as much action as you think to say it's a zombie film which is usually what makes these kind of films work, The 3D wasn't worth paying an extra £2 for, But what does make this film good was the plot it's not the usual zombie plot, The effects were very good and Bead Pitt acts his way through the film in style, The zombies were amazing and how they should be done, When all is said and done it's very gripping that gets your heart pumping in places but there's room for improvment (Mostly in the action department) But worth watching.

Fantastic to the core. Terribly un-flawed in plot and acting.

As we look back on World War Z with the benefit of a few years, I think it's clear that Forster's (who hasn't had much of a career since this film) efforts produced a supremely average production that failed to utilize stimulating source material and a new take on the zombie look to it's full potential, blowing the best parts of the film in the trailer and offering little more to fans. In reality, the finished product felt more like part of a good movie muddled with confusing snippets of a worse movie, ultimately leaving audiences wanting. It has its moments, but World War Z is already on its way to being completely forgotten and it's probably not worth the watch.
