Watch World War Z movie, film Adapted from the novel for zombies – Max Brooks, the eponymous film by Marc Forster is freed from its construction to develop a different plot thread. While the book passed several points of view, the movie focuses indeed on a particular character Gerry Lane, a former member of the UN, played with rather disconcerting phlegm by Brad Pitt. At the same time we cannot really criticize his serene and unruffled character when it comes to protecting his family and his children do not panic about the dangers of the situation … Except that this feature does not let go during the two hours the film, and the kids and wife are left pretty quickly in favor of a world tour express overused, which will bring South Korea Wales through Jerusalem.
The scenario would be more able to pay tribute to the novel Brooks exploiting different places through the eyes of many people. Especially when Brad finds himself forced to leave the ship without his wife and children , we say that the film can finally find a parallel frame , in another place, with an issue that still handsome does not control : the boat where his family with a potentially infected without knowing it . But no, the action never lets Brad Pitt, for once, is always in the right place at the right time.
The scene in the camp of Jerusalem is a typical example. So visually, it is the most successful film, with its mountains of undead and crowd movements impressive, it loses its impact and effectiveness as it symbolizes more than this. Even the female soldier who escapes with Pitt finds no genuine interest in the rest of the story … We find this malaise in the scene in Korea, while the scientific development seems to promise an interesting history, the scenario quickly aborted this idea in a turnaround that gives the ridiculous!
Therefore supporting roles as subplots were not living in the film. This is indeed a unique perspective that “World War Z” adopt: that of Gerry, allowing the spectator lambda Brad contemplate a plane, Brad in a lab, Brad in a boat … for it is primarily a public movie while you attend. At the beginning of the film, in particular, we are caught in the rise of the phenomenon that Z is out of control and that makes this frightening threat that arises from everywhere and nowhere. The last act also picks the viewer, once the company can be found in the corridors of the laboratory and it is condemned to silence every sound then becomes the enemy of our hero. However it is a small consolation…
As for the 3D, it adds nothing to the viewing of the film, to top it all foolishly succumbs to one of the worst product placement in the history of cinema!
