DVD & Blu-ray review: World War Z (15)


Yet more undead (see also The Walking Dead, Warm Bodies, The Returned etc). It’ll be a zombie musical next. This time around, it’s a zombie summer blockbuster with a bored-looking Brad Pitt called upon to save the world from the nippy brain munchers (they don’t lumber, this bunch) brain munchers.

He’s some sort of UN troubleshooter, it’s never fully explained what sort. In fact, there’s very little explanation of anything. Best to turn off all mental faculties and savour the breathtaking set-pieces, notably hordes of the undead scaling a Jerusalem wall and zombie chaos on an aeroplane.
