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..”

“..is not a brilliant addition to the zombie lore. But it's also not the shuffling mess it was rumoured to be. It's an attempt at large-scale seriousness in a genre that's frequently preposterous..”

by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..a surprisingly smart, gripping and imaginative addition to the zombie-movie canon..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3.5 of 5

“.."World War Z" plays a bit like a series of separate films and the juncture where the new final act was grafted onto the proceedings is unmistakable, but unless you knew about the film's troubled past, you'd never guess it existed..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
