DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Horror Thriller - While a zombie thriller, this is mostly a big effects-heavy action film than a horror movie--that is, until the final stretch. This is a big Brad Pitt showcase as all other actors have small to incredibly fleeting roles, including recognizable stars such as Matthew Fox. Violence, while at a PG-13 rating, is still much too intense for children, and there is some language.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average World War Z contains some impressive set pieces - sequences that, taken on their own, are either tense or visually arresting.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Ironically, what makes the movie's final sequence unnerving is its embrace of time-tested low-budget zombie film values:...

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Brad Pitt's zombie thriller is entertaining but can't sidestep improbable moments.

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average Surprisingly entertaining, even fitfully exciting, "World War Z" is primarily an exercise in expectation management.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 139 moviegoers:
For this type of movie, I would say these are OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! More than half of each group indicated they loved "World War Z." Most of the rest, in each group, rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Relatively few rated it as low as "Good/Average." And a truly astonishing thing is that no one, except for a tiny percentage of the adult females, disliked "World War Z." For a Zombie movie to have so few low reviews has never happened, that I can recall.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
On an ordinary day, Gerry Lane and his family find their quiet drive interrupted by urban gridlock. An ex-United Nations investigator, Lane senses that this is no ordinary traffic jam. As police helicopters buzz the sky and motorcycle cops careen wildly below, the city erupts into chaos.

Something is causing hordes of people to viciously attack each other - a lethal virus that is spread through a single bite, turning healthy humans into something unrecognizable, unthinking and feral. Neighbor turns on neighbor; a helpful stranger suddenly becomes a dangerous enemy. The origins of the virus are unknown, and the number of infected grows exponentially larger each day, quickly becoming a global pandemic. As the infected overwhelm the world's armies and rapidly topple its governments, Lane is forced to return to his dangerous former life to insure the safety of his family, leading a desperate worldwide search for the source of the epidemic and a means to stop its relentless spread.
