Review by Diana Saenger

World War Z really does not fit in a particular world of its own. It’s not scary enough to be a real zombie horror film – partly because it’s rated “PG-13” so young kids can see it. It’s comical at times but not enough to be enjoyed like Shaun of the Dead. It’s not even a great movie to showcase popular Brad Pitt because he’s the only major star in the film with little wiggle room to make a difference in the story.

Those who donít care if a move makes sense.
