What Will You Do In World War Z?
I recently watched the action packed thriller World War Z on DVD and I am kicking myself that I did not see it in the theaters. I usually take the extra time to do so with this kind of film. I found it to be above the ordinary for movies of its type.
The plot lines unfold from a family drama to a race against time rather quickly. I found it thought provoking and inspiring as far as a sci-fi thrillers go. The survival theme here is part of what makes it a great movie for me. These actors fill their roles well in a story line that would normally be a B grade film topic.
There are very tender moments as well as scary, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!! sections carefully woven throughout this story.
What would you do is a question I would love to have you answer after you see this movie. (No spoilers here, in this review!)
The twists and turns had me jumping in my seat which is something I have not experienced in a few years. I loved the way the character, Gerry, played by Brad Pitt, is so dedicated to his family but also torn in a decision he must make, not to just save his family, but to save everyone he possibly can. These scenes are frighteningly good and I truly enjoyed this thrill ride of a movie. I knew 15 minutes into the film that this is a brand new addition to my science fiction favorites.
The theme for this film reminds me of another favorite sci-fi flick, I Am Legend, Starring Will Smith.
I Am Legend describes the demise of society in a world wide epidemic. I have loved movies like this since I watched the Omega Man and Night Of The Living Dead when I was a teenager.
Zombie movies are such creepy fun, but I often wonder what the possibilities for survival could be in this scenario. How can you run and hide? How could you even maintain a day around a mass of flesh-eating undead?
Meet Dr. Robert Neville. He is the last man on earth, alive, or so he thought... Brilliant adaptation of the book by Richard Matheson.
I have a deep respect for any actor that can hang out on a movie set around zombified people in make up and not have nightmares about it.
