World War Z Review: Catching Some Zzz’s in the Zombie Apocalypse

There is a moment midway through World War Z where viewers see an all out zombie horde start pilling up the side of a wall trying to get to the living on the other side. Piling on top of one another, some finally make it to the other side, and also somehow take down a helicopter. I feel like this is the perfect metaphor for Marc Foster’s World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, for while there are some generally intriguing moments in the film that rise up above other zombie films, it seems that Marc Foster is trying to simply add one genre trope after another to make the film seem more epic, but ultimately pile up into one shambling mess of a film.
