World War Z isn't the zombie film you wanted, nor is it the balls-to-the-wall zombie film you needed. Rather, it's a big budget, sometimes visually stunning, mirror image of just about every undead film ever put to celluloid. But minus the gore. Minus the "money shot" zombie close-ups. And more importantly minus the human element. World War Z offers surface level emotional stakes, yet it fails to make us care about anyone at all. In lieu of this, we get an "okay" zombie film with the greatest sense of scope ever applied to this sub-genre.
