World War Z Review

On Tuesday, myself and the hubby were lucky enough to pop along to the Irish premiere of World War Z by way of me winning a competition on Twitter.

Hubby is more into the whole zombie thing than me so I was thrilled to drag him along to see the first proper blockbuster of the summer.I promise not to give away any spoilers below.

Before I get into whether this film was for me, here is a bit of background for you.

Who's In It?
Brad Pitt, Mirielle Enos, Ruth Nega (from Love/Hate). 
*Blink and you will miss Matthew Fox from Lost* I managed to catch him but hubby missed
What's it all about?
 United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.    
Running Time 116 mins
Certificate TBC
Release Date 21st June
Now that's out of the way, I will say one thing - I loved it!! As mentioned above I really don't get the appeal with zombie movies and admittedly when I saw the trailer, my words were "Yeah it looks alright but are you really going to go down the whole zombie road??" Also, in recent years, I'm become a bit meh about Brad Pitt.
To say that I had to eat my words is an understatement. World War Z hits the ground running and is chockablok with action but also a fair degree of humour. Something I wasn't expecting but loved.World War Z really takes the monkey out of zombies. Something I really liked but if you are a die hard love all things zombies kinda person, you may or may not like that. 

I really liked Brad Pitt's doting father but hard as nails character. He is essentially guilted into helping discover the source of the virus and from there he really doesn't have much luck,disaster hits at every corner.But when he is up against it, he really kicks some zombie bum.

I would say pop along to the cinema to see this, I doubt many people would be disappointed.

Will you be heading along to see World War Z?
