A massive budget with Hollywood’s leading man at the helm is surely going to quash the notion of zombie movies being stupid, right?


Wrong.

Brad Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a former United Nations Officer turned stay-at-home dad.

The action kicks off rather early, while Gerry is driving his daughters to school and wife (Enos) to work suddenly swamps of zombies start attacking the city.

The family manage to escape in an abandoned campervan and are airlifted to safety, however Gerry’s crisis management expertise earmarks him as the last hope for humanity and he must return to the devastation in an attempt to save the world.


What’s wrong with this movie? Firstly, the characters are dull and suffer no real loss. Pitt seems bored and no one appears at all traumatized by the events.

Secondly, it lacks suspense and horror; the zombie ‘mob mentality’ doesn’t keep you on the edge of your seat and most of the action happens in the background.

Lastly, there is no blood and gore which, let's face it, is what we paid for.

Even the unique idea for a ‘cure’ is overshadowed by an almost unfinished ending.

Pitt was recently in Australia promoting his newest flick, stating it was 'the most intense thing he’s ever done’. I’m still waiting to be scared.

Good for: People who don’t like horror movies.
