World War Z

World War Z(2013)

Once I got past the fact that this thing had only the loosest possible connection to the great piece of zombie literature it's based on, I actually had a pretty good time. There's no real standouts among the cast, but the characters are all well-written and the script manages to fill; them with enough soul to keep you caring about them. The idea of horde zombies is original and the scenes where they amass and come together to get to food (re: us) were great. The ending might have benefitted from a little work (even if they are planning sequels), but overall I'd say this was a good movie inspired by (and not based on) a better book.
