264, World War Z
Who ever came up with the notion that zombies would plod around aimlessly, leaving you plenty of time to escape a locked in loo let alone a country obviously hadn't discussed the notion with Brad Pitt as these bad boys (and girls) come at you like a Tsunami rather than a 'non' energised bunny to the point that within 10 seconds of being chomped on you're part of the clan and swept up in a constant, hunger fuelled rampage the only ends when the blood literally runs out.
Well - that's what you get with this movie - and its truly awesome.
The whole cast is fantastic - from Brad Pitt himself right down to Pater Capaldi (BBC's The Thick of it) and everyone else in between. To highlight a few, there is Pitt's family (wife and daughters) who are awesome, his U.N boss who plays the protector and guardian angel and the reasons for the family's survival in the first place and the W.H.O Dr's (I haven't got it the wrong way round - World Health Organisation) who 'man up' exactly when needed to assist Pitt. Finally - my favourite were the Marine squadron who assist in the plane refuelling with a real "Hoo-Ra!" attitude that rounds off the stand out cast.
This has 'action' written all over it with awesome special effects and the falling of Fortified Israel (you'll understand) is one of the most awe inspiring visualisations of mass CGI Mapping you will ever see. I cant fault it - from the first 10 minutes the action starts and its finale which is more edge of the seat anticipation than actual Zombie rampage finishes it all off perfectly.
