2.5 of 4

“..this likely won't matter to moviegoers hungry for the thrills that World War Z amply provides, which include a harrowing up-close moment that will remind you of a certain Chianti-sipping doctor..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..the result is a movie that, while no classic, can be credited with giving the audience something a bit more substantive than the usual disposable summer fare..”

by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

by Scott Foundas [Variety]

by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
