World War Z

World War Z(2013)

First of all, there's no resemblance between World War Z the book and World War Z the movie, not even the zombies, which are lumbering, slow-moving, in the book but turn into agile speedsters in the movie. The beginning, set in a traffic jam in downtown Philly is downright silly and reminiscent of John Cusack's limo drive in 2012. After that though, we're treated to a pretty magnificent, visually stunning,, thriller, only to be ruined by a contrived, Hollywood ending. A pretty terrific 1:20 surrounded by 40 minutes of stupidity.
