World War Z

Late showing of the Brad Pitt vs. zombies movie World War Z – a big spectacle of a zombie apocalypse flick loosely based on a really good novel. It has sparkles of that novels ideas and that’s cool – but largely you just have to see this more as an in-name-only flick and it’s really quite good at being this other thing. Big, grandiose, city-wide action scenes well mixed with smaller, more intense¬†(and more typical) horror movie sequences. It’s largely bloodless (PG-13) given its content… and the zombies on a one-on-one basis sparked me as more oddly amusing than scary (bad design) but as a mob or group, they worked quite well. Overall, a solid, exciting, and suspenseful action/horror film – certainly compelling and watchable.

Score: 88
