It's scary good fun.
88
It's entertaining as hell.
78
An efficient and effectively exciting globe-spanning zombie thriller.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
Exciting, truly harrowing and smartly directed apocalyptic thriller from Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball"). It's the scariest zombie movie in many years.
75
Forster and his team have also mastered the discreet edit, leaving a lot of the blood, gore, and zombie slime to the imagination. (It's still a pretty convincingly creepy affair.)
75
World War Z is still as smart, shifty and scary as a starving zombie ready to chow down on you, baby, you.
70
This enjoyable shambles of a sci-fi thriller, directed by Marc Forster in impressive 3-D, stands on its own as a powerful vision of planetary chaos.
70
The movie has made it to theaters not dead on arrival, but walking dead, running dead, and - when it's really working - swarming dead.
63
Essentially, it boils down to familiar fare: a well-paced, entertaining, conventional action thriller where a reluctant hero saves the day.
60
Brad Pitt delivers a capable performance in an immersive apocalyptic spectacle about a global zombie uprising.
20
It is no summer thriller. It's an anemic actioner that fosters excitement like dead limbs as it lumbers toward a conclusion.
