Ashdoc's movie review---World war Z

Post by ashdoc on Thu Jun 27, 2013 6:25 pm

Zombies---the new supplement to ghosts as the macabre danger to humanity in the movies.....

Or rather it's the new method to earn moolah---for both Hollywood and Bollywood.....

And unlike ghost movies the scope for zombie movies is vast....

Simple---just show zombies bite normal people to convert them into more zombies and you have the weapon to create mass panic---at least in the movies....

While ghost can terrorize only a house , zombies can terrorize larger areas....

The recent Bollywood movie ' Go Goa gone ' showed people taking a drug and becoming zombies on an island....

Somebody from Hollywood thought---why not show the whole world turn zombie by an epidemic of some viral infection ??

Let them bite each other like rabid dogs and spread zombiedom.....

Actually rabid dogs would be ashamed of the small number of humans they infect compared to the vast numbers that humans can infect when they really start biting.....

Whole gangs or rather mobs of nutcases ( actually they are undead---whatever that means ) roaming the streets and landscapes and indeed entire nations searching for people to bite.....

In fact religious leaders would be flummoxed as to why they didnt think of this idea to convert other people---just bite other people and they get converted to your religion

And from where does the energy to sustain such activity come from---since they dont seem to eat anything after becoming zombie ??
Sshh !! Dont ask uncomfortable questions if you wanna enjoy the movie.....

Leading your foray into this macabre enjoyment is superstar Brad Pitt of Angelina Jolie fame....

He and his family narrowly escape a zombie massacre , and very conveniently he is shown to be so important that the deputy secretary general of UN no less arranges for his and his family's rescue to an aircraft carrier.....

Once rescued it is made clear to him that only essential people have been rescued and he has to take part in the fight against zombies for his family to survive---otherwise its back into zombiedom for them.....

Yeah , he's no Dharmendra or Amitabh to become saviour of innocent people and only reluctantly agrees to help save the earth....

But once he does enter the fray he does so with aplomb and carries out his task rentlessly.....

But the zombies he is up against are rentless as well ( they have to be---to make the movie interesting )....

Any noise and they are attracted to it for biting people like a moth is attracted to a flame....

And they develop herd mentality and all of them get violent and agitated if one of them is killed and attack the person who has done the killing.....

And they pile up on each other in one spectacularly shot scene and climb the great wall that the nation of Israel has built to protect itself....

Superbly shot aerial photography shows dense masses of zombies stalking planet earth....

And you get to watch it in the full glory of modern 3D effects....

No place seems to be without these zombies---even the plane carrying Brad Pitt has one on it and the whole plane gets infected.....

However Brad discovers a way of avoiding zombie bites by observing their pattern of behavior....

And if the whole of humankind can be made to avoid zombie bites in the manner discovered by him then there's a way to survive....

But the secret to make humans avoid zombie bites lies on a path being blocked by the zombies themselves.....

Brad will have to walk through it to bring back hope to humanity.....

Walk through a horde of blood crazed zombies waiting to bite---how does Pitt accomplish that ??

Go and watch the movie for that....

Would be a nice outing....

Verdict---good .
