Twelve seconds before the transformation of a lifetime, literally. What would you do if the world you lived in was overrun with “zombies” who spread their infection with every bite and turn people into one of them in 12 short seconds? This is reality for everyone in the movie World War Z, centered around Gerry Lane (played by Brad Pitt) and his family.
Gerry is an ex-United Nations investigator who must help to find the source and hopefully the cure to this terrible plague thrown upon them. With the team members and friends he makes along the way, he travels to many countries around the world, trying to find the source with crazy interactions and terrible incidents. Every part of the movie is significant and is thoughtfully put together leaving viewers wondering and curious until the last minutes.
The humans who are plagued are merely slowed down by body shots and aren’t fazed by broken or missing limbs; they will do anything possible and more to infect everything and everyone. To stop these “zombies,” individuals must shoot their heads or burn their entire bodies. The zombies are mainly attracted to noise; however, they are able to see and smell just not as well as their sense of hearing.
This is a movie that doesn’t start slowly. In less than four minutes into the movie, audiences are already intrigued, curious, and their blood is starts to boil. This is an intense thriller and horror that is sure to keep viewers on the edge of their seat eyes plastered to the television screen from beginning to finish. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a mystery movie with huge twists and wonderful film work, you will believe that you’re the one running for your life.
5 out of 5.
