World War Z was released on June 12, 2013 starring Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos. This story follows Gerry Lane (Pitt) as he is forced away from his family to travel the world in order to find a solution to the zombie pandemic that has quickly spread around the globe. If you haven’t read the book, the trailers alone will give the impression of World War Z to be a basic scary movie. There are many frightening moments throughout, but overall the movie is an action/thriller sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. The great performances by all the actors and actresses make it easy to become emotionally invested with Lane, his family, and those he meets along the way. I’ve never been a fan of Pitt, but I certainly was of him in this movie. The only issue I really had with the movie overall was the lack of build-up, character development, and explanation of the virus at the beginning. There should have been a longer lead-up to the action.
Overall, I’d give it a 7/10. Definitely worth seeing!
