World War Z staring MEGGA star Brad Pitt was NEVER going to be a faithful adaptation of the book. How could it be? He's too big. Only way fans of the book are gonna get a faithful adaptation is a HBO mini or some VHS style anthology movie.
As it is, a starring vehicle and potential franchise for Brad, it's solid entertainment. I can't fault the film just cause...the zombies run and it's PG13. It's well made, paced and there's some cracking sequences. Also the make up effects were decent too. I was expecting I Am Legend death by cgi but thankfully it's nowhere near that.
Wasn't fond of the family unit angle. Felt forced for immediate stakes and it was an anchor for Pitt's character which felt more like a ball and chain. I did like his female soldier sidekick. She was awesome and SPOILERS totally unkillable. haha
The end was a bit too neat but like I said overall it's a case of well done. It could have been so very worse.
