Movie Review: World War Z

World War Z is a thrilling, serious and considerably fresh apocalyptic zombie action film despite its overused premise. The film shows the beginnings of the viral outbreak and witness how the world starts to spin out of control through the eyes of a person. It makes you feel like you're experiencing the outbreak with the characters as well. Keep in mind though, the film not only focused on a few characters or family, but the whole world.

The film is targeted at the mass audience, so the zombie makeup effects aren't scary or gory as they should be and most of the conventional overused fright scenes aren't really present in the film. The outbreak in confined spaces such as the flight scene is well made.

There's an unpredictable twist in the film which I find it quite funny when it happens.The film is not as terrible as many had said about it, it's definitely better than most resident evil sequels and Will Smith's I Am Legend. The film does provide a satisfactory ending but leaves the door open for a sequel as no definitive solution is found to stop the outbreak.

Rating: 7/10
