World War Z 3Disout now (On-Demand, DVD or Blu-Ray).

I saw World War Z with expectations of a great zombie flick, offering something new to the genre that hadn't yet been done to death (pardon the pun). While watching, I remained optimistic, considering that the high fear factor kept me at the edge of my seat. After the movie, as it all started to fade from memory, I tried to think of a scene that would sum it up as a film worth seeing, but even days later, I couldn't think of anything outstanding. Nothing that made me feel that it topped what I had seen before in numerous zombie flicks and TV shows.

In hindsight, it actually reminded me more of a viral outbreak movie, like Contagion, and not so much like a zombie flick after all. To be honest, I was beginning to feel a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it was a three star movie, but it wasn't what I was lead to believe it was.

When I first saw the trailers, I imagined, by the way the zombies all ran in unison with little regard to their own safety, that there was a single malicious force controlling them, causing them to attack as one overpowering unit - a collective, perhaps. Had this been the case, then I may not have been so upset. But as it stands, it was just another run-of-the-mill zombie tale, with no causal explanation, no interesting storyline, and no satisfying outcome.
