One thing that I’m sure Hollywood will never run out of is zombie movies.

After seeing World War Z, my conclusion is that it is so unevenly balanced that if you are not ready to see it through to the end, you may sleep off during the long discussion on what the actors are planning to do next.
The movie is an action drama, there are no horrific moments or a focused view of zombies eating a human. In World War Z, we always seem to be moving from a chase (that leaves you gasping for breath as our hero is doing all he can to escape being beaten by a zombie) to lengthy talks.

Looking at the movie as a whole it is not that bad, it tried it’s best to bring in seriousness into a genre that is best known for action (in the area of killing off attacking zombies) and chases (running for dear life), and in the end the movie was all about action and chases, all seriousness went out the window.

The question that will be on the mind of many is: that did Brad Pitt and his production company Plan B entertainment deliver?
And the answer will be yeah.
World War Z digressed from the book that it is based on, but it was fun to watch all the same.

The movie's screenplay was done by Matthew Michael Carnahan and is loosely based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks.

World War Z stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator, who witnessed the zombie epidemic take off.
After he and his family, narrowly escaped being beaten or being made a meal by the zombies. Gerry unwillingly joined the search to find where the epidemic started and to see what can be done to bring it to an end.

The journey costs them a lot, as lives were lost, and a recent observation by Gerry left them with more questions than answers.

The acting by Brad Pitt is just top notch and World War Z ended up being a financial success, which is why Paramount Pictures is moving ahead to make a sequel to the movie.
The idea of making a sequel was previously shelved when the movie was running into production troubles and the budget rising, but now production has begun for the sequel.
Take your time to watch this movie, it is worth it.
