    Look! He has a family. We keep showing you. Why don't you care about him? Can't you see that he has a wife and children? No ... why would we ... look, we don't need character development. He literally has a monogamous partner and offspring! They are right there. 6 years 4 months ago

    The first scene of mass panic is effective and skillfully done, but the script soon regresses to a globe-trotting hyperbole that even the lean and atmospheric third act cannot salvage. Some plot points are also outright ridiculous. 7 years 3 months ago

    No idea about the book but as a movie I thought this was quite good.

    Altogether, there's a decent mix of visually impressive disaster-movie scenes coupled with some well built up moments of horror suspense.

    Agree with the comment below that apart from Pitt, the film failed to get the audience invested in the characters and so it hardly seemed to matter when certain ones turn into zombie feed. This was a bit of a shame since WWZ had such an impressive looking cast with the likes of Pierfrancesco Favino, Mireille Enos, David Morse and James Badge Dale. Instead the movie seemed to be trying to do too much, cover an ambitious amount of ground and the result is that most of our principle cast are cardboard cutouts. Another minor gripe with this film is what i'm assuming is a PG rating... if you're going to depict an apocalyptic scenario involving the flesh eating undead then there really ought to be more blood and guts.


    Would probably give it 7-7.5 / 10. It's entertaining and certainly better than most of the shite out there but not amazing.
