World War Z

They should've called this movie "World War Zzzzzzz...."

To be fair, it's not a bad film. In fact, it's maybe even a pretty good film, and you'll probably enjoy it if you like action and horror films but have somehow never seen any other zombie movies already. But having said that, if you've never seen any zombie movies, don't start with this once, since there are literally a dozen or so others I'd recommend first. This is a perfectly fine zombie film, it just added nothing much to the genre other than more CG and more zombies. This would've been an awesome film had it come out a decade or go, but unfortunately it came out a few months ago.

And that's pretty much all I have to say about World War Z, since I can't really review it since I only watched the first 45 minutes or so. That was the point when I realized I wasn't even paying attention, so I turned it off and watched something else.

I'd like to read the book some day, since people seem to love it, and from what I understand, it bears no resemblance at all to the film. But as to this movie...yeah, I considered once renting it, and then I thought, "I've never heard anybody say anything remotely excited-sounding about this film, so why waste valuable hours of my life?"
