Brad Pitt stars as an ex-United Nations employee racing around the globe in a bid to halt a worldwide zombie pandemic in Marc Forster's sprawling adaptation of Max Brooks' bestselling novel of the same name. Retired U.N. investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family are sitting in what appears to be a typical Philadelphia traffic jam when helicopters began to circle ominously overhead, and an explosion throws the city into panic. In the blink of an eye, the streets are consumed by chaos. When Gerry learns that the catalyst for the turmoil is a highly contagious virus that transforms those who contract it into rampaging maniacs, and that legions of the infected are growing on all continents, he agrees to join his former colleagues in discovering the source of the rampant plague so that his wife and two daughters will be guaranteed safety aboard a UN fleet in the Atlantic Ocean. Upon tracing a crucial e-mail to a U.S. military base in South Korea, Gerry learns that the infection has spread more rapidly than anyone realizes. Although a subsequent trip to Jerusalem, where the government has constructed a massive wall to keep the public safe, initially offers hope that the growing horde can be kept at bay, an unexpected breach sends Gerry back into the sky in search of patient zero. Just when Gerry thinks he's traced the origins of the virus, however, the unthinkable happens. Subsequently stranded in Cardiff with a fearless Israeli soldier, Gerry quickly makes his way to a World Health Organization outpost where the few remaining scientists have hit a dead end in their search for a cure. But the struggle is far from over, and after recalling an unusual scene witnessed in Jerusalem, Gerry prepares to make a leap of faith that could prevent the downfall of humanity.~Jason Buchanan
It was a really good show I had read the books a while ago and when I seen the advertisement for the trailer I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas. Brad Pitt played a great part but my favorite part of the whole show was a split second scene where they bring out an AC 130 in level a stadium full of zombies now that's what I'm talking about i'm glad to know there's other people out there in the world with my devious way of thinking
I got this for Christmas in Blu-ray 3D watched it last weekend for the first time it was an edge of your seat, never let's go, smart and powerful thrill ride, a great blend of a global perspective with out loosing the personal story.
I loved the movie. Saw it twice in theaters and now just watched the unrated cut. Very intense, action oriented with surprising NOT a lot of typical zombie style gore e.g. Walking Dead TV series. Prestine picture quality (PQ) and Audio and an effective 7.1 DTS-HD master audio soundtrack. Extra's are small but informative.
This review is from World War Z [Includes Digital Copy] [Blu-ray/DVD] [Best Buy Exclusive] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars

New york scene was best of all time, to bad it ended quickly, zombies up the Israel wall was amazing too, special mentions: series black summer said zombies make a zombie bridge over a river, id like to see that in a fashionable way, maybe people swim over and think threat is gone haha, also zombies kinda alsways know where people are at like in a canadian zombie movie, its like they feel it, that was awesome, id like to see a more of that, awesome
Pretty entertaining despite some silly tropes and overall corn. As a fan of the WWZ book, I can't say this film is perfect. However, I can tell you the movie delivers in blockbuster fashion an entertaining zombie film. Sometimes you lament when Hollywood gets a hold of fan favorite IP, but other times you can be happy they at least tried. Supposedly has a sequel coming some day? I will watch that too for sure.
