World War Z Review

World War Z
     Brad Pitt's latest film World War Z was a pleasant surprise. When Gerry (Pitt's Character) and his family are sitting in their home just relaxing like every other family likes to do on a weekend morning. They decide to go on a vacation but on the way something happens. They find themselves in the middle of what we think is a zombie apocalypse. No one knows what it is but zombies are every where. Yes that is what the "Z" stands for. But Gerry, his wife, and his 2 girls make it to safety on a aircraft carrier somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean. The military recruit Gerry to go help them find what started this zombie apocalypse type thing and to see if there is a way to stop it. 
     Now, I just gave you a simple plot summary because I don't want to spoil anything for you. This story is deep. It goes in depth. It's not just another zombie film. It's a film that really stands out. The story is nothing like you have seen before. The best part that I liked about this film were the zombies. The zombies are are not like any other zombie we have ever seen. They are very realistic. These zombies can run. They run faster than the humans which makes you sit on the edge of your seat the whole film. You actually believe that they are a threat to the other humans. The zombies were very well done in World War Z. This was one of the many great things about it. The pacing is something that can go either way for the bad, or for the good. At times it seemed like it dragged on especially when there was no action. But the parts with the action out weighed the parts with no action. The action was the story. The action is what carried this film. Not only the zombie's made the action, but Brad Pitt as well. Spectacular performance on his part. 
     Over all this movie was an awesome 115 min of pure greatness.  Not only did they focus on the action, but they made the action balance out the story perfectly. The action was the story.  The only thing that bugged me was Brad Pitt's hair. A good time in the theater. I give this film a 4.7/5. A 9/10 or a high A-.
