World War Z was directed by Marc Forster and shook off a troubled production to prove a critical and commercial success with $540 million in box office sales around the globe.

The screenplay was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof, as screen story by Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski, based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks. The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator who must travel the world to find a way to stop a zombie pandemic.

From the opening moments of “World War Z,” there’s a certain nervous energy that translates into a genuine excitement that carries through the rest of the movie. It begins during the first suspense set piece when Gerry and his family are trying to escape an infected Philadelphia.

The tension never ceases but instead builds exponentially from one moment to the next. The film moves from scene to scene, from one location to another, ultimately across the world, the tension is continually building as sequences domino to ever higher – until we end up in Isreal.

The Israel Sequence

When Gerry flies to Israel to investigate how they’ve dealt with the problem (according to a toothless CIA operative, they’ve “handled” the zombies well over there), we’re treated to the movie’s suspense centerpiece: a giant swarm of zombies, attracted by the noise created by singing citizens as well as loudspeaker system, scale a huge wall that had been erected to keep the monsters out.

It is probably the most visually powerful scene in the film. Zombies form a pyramid as they climb on top of each other in rapid succession in an attempt to scale a wall. The zombies look like an angry swarm of ants, they act instinctively as insects or perhaps more like birds, and the scene really shows the type of threat that they represent.

The fevered pitch of this sequence is so high that the movie can never possibly hope to match it, which is probably why the third act of the movie moves away from action into horror territory.

  2. Why is there no watchtower on top of the walls in the first place. And I cannot understand how can the zombies get up that wall without a ladder! Even normal humans could not do that.

  3. Why would they sing they don't know zombie have Super Hearings and can take sound from kilometers and they don't take pain from high fall

    But they die when they shotted

  4. too religious people are again to be blamed. Fuckin what is a reason to sing bullshit songs when right after the wall there is an army of those who will eat you right with your useless songs. Religion makes some people blind. Even tho I believe in God, I see difference between two extremes

  5. Very stupid scene. People who are in very dangerous situation always are trying to hide. So, they are QUIET! Always! And what they are doing? They make a NOISE…And this helicopter… Did they not used miniguns?

  6. I think i'd at least attempt to survive The Walking Dead apocalypse, but if it was World War Z's apocalypse, id' shoot myself on the spot.
