      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's uneven and diverges from the source book, but World War Z still brings smart, fast-moving thrills and a solid performance from Brad Pitt to the zombie genre.

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online 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. Rated: C+ Sep 7, 2017 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk Scrape off all that spectacle and it's pretty non-original stuff. Rated: 3/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com It's actually quite remarkable this movie turned out even remotely good, considering the horrendous production reports and the reshooting of the entire last act. Rated: B Apr 23, 2015 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Successfully captures the fragmented and anthological nature of the source material, with the scope and scale managing to deliver exciting sequences not often seen in low-budget zombie fare. Rated: 4/5 Sep 20, 2023 Full Review Benjamín Harguindey EscribiendoCine The well-filmed genial ending makes us realize the weaknesses of what preceded it. Finally, the zombies are scary. But what are we afraid of? There isn't one single interesting character in the entire movie. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Aug 7, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Though it contains a few impressive set-pieces and some engaging individual sequences, the overall effect is flat and unmemorable. Rated: 2/4 Sep 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Nab A One of my favorite films, watch it every 2 years. Story is so believable and pacing is amazing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review sam c I never quite enjoyed zombie movies. Never understood how you couldn't just out run them. 21 days made them scary to me. This was a step beyond. I have seen it over 6 times and still hold my breath at the end. I like how it jumps right into the mayhem and how there isn't any time spent between arguing bureaucrats or had that 1 horrible guy being an ass that you want to see killed. Thought it was a logical story from start to finish, moved quickly, and had a lot of suspense. I read the book afterward and loved it. I can see if you read the book 1st that you would have been upset with the movie; totally different. Since I saw the movie first, I was able to enjoy both. Watching the movie now has a different feel. The movie shows how the world cooperated when it was hit with a crisis; people working together. Kind of food for thought after witnessing the actions of people in the last few years who will do what they want because they think they know better and they have every excuse in the book to justify their actions. You know who would end up the zombies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/27/24 Full Review Mihaela D Very goooooood movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Terry H Circled back and watched this one again. One of the better zombie movies in my opinion. Jumps right into the action from the get go. Good pacing and blend of advancing the plot and zombie action from there. Always enjoy watching this one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/23/24 Full Review Peaceupatowndwn A Excellent Zombia Movie this is what we been asking for since Night of Living Dead it was good to see these night crawlers all over the place , and they even ran at us . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Igor S I never read the books that this is based upon, so i cannot compare them to the movie, but this was solid. It was also a bit different from your typical zombie movie, which i appreciated, because nowadays i want my zombie movies to have some story at least, even if just a little bit. I don't know why they never made a sequel to this but i would love to see it, especially if Brad Pitt is involved, as he was really good in this. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews
