World War Z *****
« on: September 17, 2013, 06:46:15 PM »
This is probably the best Zombie film I have seen. The scenario involves the sudden pandemic of a rabies like disease which causes its victims to become violent, deranged monsters. The transformation occurs as quickly as within ten seconds of being bitten by another sufferer. There is some credibility to the concept, although not the severity and rapid onset. The original concept of crazed individuals biting others and acting in the manner shown in most zombie films goes back to rabies outbreaks at earlier times. It is believed that Rabies is more responsible for the zombie phenomenon than the Haitian version. Haitian zombies are, generally, pretty passive.
Anyway, the outbreak begins suddenly and violently, and the action doesn't slow until the very end. The film is intense and it is scary. There is some stuff that absolutely made my skin crawl. The zombies themselves are far more believable than in any other film I have seen. They are really well done.
I was prepared to not like this film, but I never got a chance to. It caught me in the first few minutes and didn't let me go until the end. There was no bad after taste either, no "oh that was B.S." that sometimes happens. It just holds together really well.
It is currently available at RedBox, and I highly recommend it.

"Race has now replaced rule of law officially. In one speech our president has reversed 60 years of healing the racial divide and destroyed the dream of Dr. King. The result will be an exact reversal of the conditions existing before The Civil Rights Act. And the hardest hit will be the children in whose name the left always claims to act. Well done Obama". - Pendark
