When I saw the movie trailer, I never expected a good movie. In fact, after I watched World War Z, I was speechless. This probably is the best zombie movie I ever watched!
Taken from the IMDB, the synopsis is:
United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
The plot is super fast. You won’t be provided by a long and boring story background of what virus is or the relationship of Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family, etc. In short, this movie will not give you a long time to take a breath.
I am a fan of Hollywood zombie serial, The Walking Dead. In such, the only situation which could make me terrified was when the serial character(s) were cornered. Why? Because the classic Zombie walks slowly. As long as you have a weapon, spaces and not outnumbered, you’ll be safe.
However, in World War Z, the zombies not only shows in a huge numbers but each of them can also ‘think’. With their ‘thought’, they can run, head banging (on to the window) and surprisingly can climb a very tall giant wall by piling their bodies up to one another.
Nevertheless, I noted the down side of this movie, i.e. the make up and the CGI of the zombie are not good. Like I said before, I watched The Walking Dead. In such serial, the make-up and the CGI of the zombies are almost perfect!
Ok, back to the storyline, like any problem in this world, there will always be a solution. What is their (the zombies) weakness? I recommend you guys, movie lovers, to WATCH this movie to know the answer.
You’d better be hurry, cause World War Z has already been being played in theatres in Indonesia for 2 weeks. And like many other good movies, they went down just too fast.
Oh I almost forgot, I also like the main casts of this movie since they are smart and not fool or even sily like many film makers did that to their characters. There will not be a scene when the casts say: “We’d better split up or whatsoever”. Very entertaining and will not make you mad caused by the characters stupidity (there I said again).
I rate World War Z a solid 4 stars out of 5.
