World War Z (2013) Review

I love this movie, and it is a must see for everyone. Director, Marc Forster did an incredible job with World War Z (2013). It is full of nonstop action and epic moments. I will definitely see this movie again. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is happy with his married life and two daughters after leaving his job as an investigator for the United Nations. World War Z gave a small introduction to Garry’s life before heading to a fast-paced action adventure. Garry got reeled back into his old job so that his family can be safe from the zombies. I was shocked at the apartment building roof scene when Barry and his family were escaping the zombies… never saw that in a movie before.

I was expecting the scientist, Andrew Fassbach (Elyes Gabel) to die trying to get the cure for the zombie apocalypse, but I did not expect him to die before even leaving the plane. I think the Jerusalem wall scene was epic. I expected Segen (Daniella Kertesz) to be infected in the airplane scene, and I felt it was unreal that Gerry and Segen survived the plane crash. I did not expect the movie to end at the UK lab. I thought they would of a found a cure and taken it back to the United States where they would be attacked by more Zombies. One ending I also thought of is that Gerry’s family would be infected and turned into zombies, and he would have the ultimate choice of joining them or killing them.

This is a two-hour movie that I did not want to see at first because of the length, but it was really worth it, and I am tremendously happy that I did see it. It was original and kept me on the edge of my seat. World War Z did not contain any dull moments and made me jump a few times. There was not much gore or bad language but lots of intensity.
