Having not read the book, or even being aware of one, before watching the film I was open minded to World War Z. I've always been a fan of the zombie genre, and not many films have captured the fear, tension and atmosphere that you'd expect of a breakout.
Unfortunately, WWZ isn't one of them either.
The film is enjoyable enough, but no lasting impression and with scenes that seemed to bounce all over the place. The best part of…
What can I say that hasn't been said before? Even by today's standards in film and effects, this stands head and shoulders above 99% of films showing that Spielberg just has that knack fro creating timeless films.
The script is still great, acting amazing, and the idea still unmatched. Combining animatronics with effects instead of relying on just CGI, the dinos feel real and the surround sound on the Blu-Ray really immerse you in every chirp from the jungle and roar from the Rex.
After purchasing this on iTunes, I was prepared to watch this with some trepidation and what I thought was going to be the worst film out of the first set of 'Avengers' films.
What I got instead was a highly enjoyable film with some cracking scenes, and setting the benchmark for the next Avengers instalment, Captain America.
I'm actually looking forward to Thor's part in Avengers (Avengers: Assemble) now after seeing this.
