WORLD WAR Z

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
