World War Z can be regarded as an apocalyptic zombie movie that’s very different from the others although it can’t make the audience into a hype and feel amazed. Adapted from the novel by Max Brooks, World War Z isn’t what we’ve expected especially those who’ve read the novel or maybe not. If we compared by Resident Evil that has so many series but getting more worse, World War Z can make the audience to see a bunch of zombies from the expectations we want.

“World War Z,” tells about a virus that’s spreading so fast can make half the city turns into a zombie. This virus has a fairly fast period of approximately 12 seconds. The result has become a global mess with death everywhere and the infected population is increasing. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is a former UN agent who re-assigned as a team in order to investigate the origin of this virus. Together with his wife and child, they must be able to survive the emergence of the zombies.

I really don’t want to say this but World War Z is a real apocalyptic zombie movie, how the world is on the verge of being critical and has very little chance of saving the world or maybe not at all. Marc Foster with a tremendous CGI really produced a zombie movie that could be said to be a real zombie movie. This’s exactly what the zombie fans want, a very epic apocalyptic movie with a zombie-like a tsunami wave to how the main character in this movie must make decisions quickly and precisely.

World War Z also comes with a movie that can warm the hearts of the audience. How can it be like that? This film also presents a drama element like a family movie that can make the hearts of the audience to be partially affected. This element makes a film that originally was a zombie apocalyptic movie somehow turned into a family movie. This element makes all the elements of action and thriller it’s not felt so that in the end we are only made touched by the drama element. But I was not bothered by the element because it was all written with some famous screenwriters like Matthew Michael Carnahan who wrote State Of Play, Drew Goddard who wrote The Cabin In The Woods, and Damon Lindelof who wrote Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Overall, World War Z is a movie with a story that is not too dramatic and not cheap though there is little drama in it. However, this film can be said as a real zombie movie. The storyline of this movie is very neat and very epic to watch. Brad Pitt managed to show great acting in this movie.
