More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    World War Z presents an abundance of relatively plausible action, smart solutions and one useful piece of information: When the zombiepocalypse comes, the undead are flying coach.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It's scary good fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s entertaining as hell.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    World War Z towers above every other alleged summer blockbuster. It’s the real deal.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    World War Z manages to be scary without descending to in-your-face gore -- it wants to frighten its audience, not disgust them.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Goss

    An efficient and effectively exciting globe-spanning zombie thriller. Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Leave it to Brad Pitt, producer and star of World War Z, to try to put the zip back in zombie.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Forster and his team have also mastered the discreet edit, leaving a lot of the blood, gore, and zombie slime to the imagination. (It's still a pretty convincingly creepy affair.)

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    World War Z is still as smart, shifty and scary as a starving zombie ready to chow down on you, baby, you.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    World War Z, based on a novel by Max Brooks and directed by Marc Forster ("Quantum of Solace"), has a relatively plausible perspective on mass catastrophe. It deserves comparisons to Steven Soderbergh’s brainy “Contagion.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    World War Z is epically realized entertainment that feeds on our fears of apocalypse, but it’s just fast enough and smart enough — and, more importantly, human enough — to keep an audience on edge from start to finish.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The first 25 minutes or so of this “Contagion” meets “28 Days Later” thriller will leave you breathless. And the rest of it serves up novel and often entertaining solutions to the various “zombie problems” that this over-exposed genre presents.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Given how efficiently World War Z has delivered jolts and screams over the course of its sleek 116-minute running time, it’s easy to forgive this rushed and slightly muted finale.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    The movie has made it to theaters not dead on arrival, but walking dead, running dead, and — when it's really working — swarming dead.

    NPR Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    World War Z often feels smaller and quieter than it is, because your attention is drawn to details and moments rather than to showstopping spectacles or self-important themes.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    It's fun to see this kind of familiar material done with intelligence and skill.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This enjoyable shambles of a sci-fi thriller, directed by Marc Forster in impressive 3-D, stands on its own as a powerful vision of planetary chaos.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A genuinely exciting thrill ride that only occasionally feels bloated or painfully dumb. Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Here’s the oddest element in this tale of Hollywood fine-tuning run rampant: the movie is pretty good — the summer’s most urgent, highest-IQ action picture.

    Time Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Forster's meticulousness—coupled with ample excuses to blow stuff up—isn't enough to turn World War Z into one of those class-A end-of-everything movies that leaves you feeling just a little bit queasy, momentarily uncertain of your own small place in this unmanageable world.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Emerges as a surprisingly smart, gripping and imaginative addition to the zombie-movie canon, owing as much to scientific disaster movies like “The China Syndrome” and “Contagion” as it does to undead ur-texts like the collected works of George Romero.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Director Marc Forster is very good at amping up the terror, but after a while, we reach zombie overload and we might as well be watching an infestation of Transformers.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    World War Z comes across as a smart and ambitious horror movie, a bio-disaster film along the lines of "Contagion" or "28 Days Later." It’s nail-bitingly tense at times, although these well-executed moments mix with others that are too much of a murky jumble to follow with any precision.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    World War Z may wear its intellect proudly, but also consciously translates the zombie premise into a safer context for wider audiences. It's not the smartest zombie movie ever made, but might be the most commercial one.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The result is a movie that, while no classic, can be credited with giving the audience something a bit more substantive than the usual disposable summer fare.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The screenplay feels like the culmination of all sorts of things being thrown against a wall to see what sticks. As it turns out, there's not enough.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The stakes are high and the excitement's there and the results, as previously stated, are messy but fairly entertaining.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Essentially, it boils down to familiar fare: a well-paced, entertaining, conventional action thriller where a reluctant hero saves the day.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Even as big-budget blockbusters go, this is a hard movie to connect with.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Fear

    Go big or go home, they say; World War Z picks the wrong choice for its slow fade-out, and, instead of leaving you in fear of being chomped upon as you exit the theater, makes you feel enraged that you’ve been more than a little cheated.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    The result looks less like a horror flick and more like a thinking man’s action-thriller – the ‘Newsnight’ of zombie films (you’ll know if that’s your cup of tea).

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    While some of World War Z is rotten, the whole stands as a punchy, if conventional action thriller.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Brad Pitt delivers a capable performance in an immersive apocalyptic spectacle about a global zombie uprising.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Paul Bradshaw

    Choosing quantity over quality, intensity over tension and big-screen thrills over low-fi shocks – this is probably what the zombie apocalypse will actually look like.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    This nightmarish travelogue is coy about gore, but it’s still an effective thrill-ride. If the sequel happens, let’s hope it delivers some actual combat.

    Empire Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    World War Z bucks the current trend in summer blockbusters by feeling weirdly understuffed. It’s an episodic adventure without enough episodes.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    The film can be engaging, well-made, and even a touch more interesting than it has much right to be. But it's also far from a satisfying work as a whole.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Just bloody eye and ear candy. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Without a character, he’s (Pitt) back to that soft, appraising, Robert Redford Jr. stare, his mouth half open as if he’s about to speak but plainly with nothing on his mind apart from, “This is what a movie star looks like without any lines.” The ghouls are having deeper thoughts.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Although there are some initial feints at using zombies as a metaphor for third-world issues and cultural differences, the picture forgets all that stuff by the final reel. World War Z opens with an undeniable bang. But if this is the way the world ends, we’re going out with a whimper.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    So once you figure out the first rule of Zombie Fight Club — nothing too bad can happen to Brad Pitt — the movie is, despite intermittent thrills, rote.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    What we get is a collection of moderately violent action set-pieces untroubled by humour or broader coherence.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The zombies twitch, leap, gnash, and destroy, but the film has all the thrill and surprise of a model U.N. summit.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It is no summer thriller. It’s an anemic actioner that fosters excitement like dead limbs as it lumbers toward a conclusion.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Denby

    World War Z is the most gratifying action spectacle in years, and one reason for its success if the Pitt doesn't play a superhero. [1 July 2013, p.76]
