WORLD WAR Z
8.30PM, TDT ★★★
This globe-trotting, nervejolting affair is as (un)dead on the money as a zombie film can get. With most of the planet overrun by a virulent invasion of fleet-footed mouth-breathers, it is left to the UN to determine where it started. If their man on the ground (Brad Pitt) can’t find the answer, the world as we know it is over. Each new destination visited triggers a devastating new set-piece. Each is different in structure and feel. All are truly frightening. With the film sprinting at the same bite-neck speed as its zombies, there is little time for character development.
