Gerry (Brad Pitt) is a former United Nations employee that had every intention of spending more time with his family. Then, a virus breaks out that is seemingly turning people into zombies. He's rescued and brought out to a Navy ship where he's informed that he needs to lead a team to South Korea, where they think this originated, and bring along a doctor to see if they can find some sort of vaccine.
WWZ had a lot of production problems. They totally re-wrote the ending, they tamed the violence quite a bit to get that PG-13 rating. I had low expectations after reading all of that, but I'm surprised to say WWZ was actually pretty good. I'm a huge Walking Dead fan (although reluctantly right now, because fuck the first half of season 4) and I appreciated how different everything was between the two. WWZ's zombies are fast, and have a weakness. The film didn't feel sloppy, despite having a completely re-worked third act, but I do wonder what the hell they are going to do in their supposed sequel.
This was a good role for Brad Pitt, and I really enjoyed Daniella Kertesz as Segen, who becomes Pitt's right hand woman so to speak in the field. Plus, there's a part early on with an important character that totally blew my mind, no pun intended.
