World War Z produced by Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) delivers an action packed zombie apocalypse that is sure to leave you wondering if something like it could really happen.
Based on the novel by Max Brooks, the movie starts off with Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family quietly sitting in a traffic jam in downtown Philadelphia. Their peace of mind quickly dissipates as a sudden wave of terror makes its way through the city. Something strange is going on, and people are acting strange. Enter zombies.
The family eventually find refuge on an aircraft carrier and Gerry is voluntold to help figure out whats going on. He then leaves his family and finds himself in the highly fortified city of Jerusalem. After some unfortunate events at the capital of Israel, Gerry finds himself at the World Health Organization headquarters in the UK. It is here that the movie climaxes and fizzles out to very mellow ending.
With a budget of over $200 million and an array of writing collaborators, I would expect a little more depth to the story line and a better ending. While the movie does well at utilizing some great action scenes it lacks any kind of depth, and your left saying “that’s it”.
