"World War Z" starring Brad Pitt was a disappointing film about a United Nation's employee caught up in a zombie war. Upon seeing the flick, one can tell why the project had so many re-shoots with an ever escalating budget that stumbled in at $250,000,000.

"World War Z" was not a good film and dragged too much at points it need to, well, make a point. I found the film boring. Pitt was also looking haggard in this movie and for an actor who made his name on being pretty, not acting ability, this was a risk.

First off, I had no idea this movie was about zombies until I popped it in the machine. Secondly, the zombies weren’t even very convincing. The CGI work was poor. The medical and scientific premise behind this film was also risky and downright dangerous (but never mind some will take it seriously - even though it is a zombie film). Don‘t laugh, the government has a preparedness plan in place in the event zombies try to take over. Yea, your tax dollars hard at work.
