World War Z

I seldom watch movies lately because of schedule and also financial issues.haha, but last Wednesday I was able to bond with my very good friends Ryan and Frinch. Originally I would like to watch Man of Steel but Ryan recommends World War Z because of its good reviews online so we decided to go with World War Z.  Luckily we favored World War Z because this movie was AWESOME. Personally the suspense was all  throughout the movie and no boring scenes. So I highly recommend WORLD WAR Z.


Former United Nations employee Gerry Lane and his family sit in heavy traffic in Philadelphia while the radio reports on a mysterious rabies outbreak that has spread internationally. They are attacked by masses of zombies, and those bitten become zombies as well. As the east coast falls prey to the attacks, the Lanes narrowly escape and flee to an apartment complex to be extracted by a helicopter sent by Gerry's former UN colleague, Thierry Umutoni, the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations.
They reach the helicopter and are taken to a U.S. Navy vessel off the coast of New York City, where a team of analysts and military personnel is analyzing the scope of the worldwide outbreak. A virologist, Dr. Andrew Fassbach, argues that the plague is a virus, whose origin must be found in order for a vaccine to be developed. The naval commander tells Gerry that, because of his expertise as a former UN investigator, he is to investigate the virus and help Fassbach find the outbreak's source. After the Navy threatens to kick Gerry and his family off the ship if he doesn't help, Gerry reluctantly agrees to fly to Camp Humphreys, a military base in South Korea where the word "zombie" was supposedly first used in reference to the outbreak.
Arriving at the base, they are attacked and Fassbach accidentally discharges his weapon, killing himself. At the base, Gerry learns from the survivors that the zombies are attracted to noise. The commander also informs Gerry of a local who was found foaming at the mouth and bit a doctor, and shows him to a room of incinerated bodies, where the soldiers on duty first saw the outbreak. Gunter Haffner, a former CIA operative imprisoned for treason, tells Gerry to go to Jerusalem, where the Israeli Mossad has established a safe zone just before the outbreak was officially acknowledged, implying Israel might have had prior knowledge.

In Jerusalem, Gerry meets Mossad leader Jurgen Warmbrunn, who explained that the agency had months earlier intercepted communications from an army general in India, which stated that Indian troops were fighting the "Rakshasa," or undead. With this knowledge and using a program implemented to prevent Israel being caught off guard, as in past conflicts, the city quarantined itself, though it still allows uninfected civilians, regardless of nationality, to enter. Due to loud noises coming from within the zone, however, thousands of infected and rabid zombies on the other side of the perimeter walls begin piling onto each other and climb over. Chaos erupts, and one of Gerry's escort soldiers, Segen, is bitten. Gerry immediately amputates her hand to prevent her from turning into a zombie, and they escape from Jerusalem on a commercial airliner.

Contacting Thierry, they are diverted to a W.H.O. research facility in Cardiff, Wales to assist in finding a cure. With the plane closing in on the W.H.O. facility, a stowaway zombie emerges from the bathroom and begins attacking passengers. As other passengers begin to turn and converge on Gerry and Segen, Gerry detonates a grenade that sucks the zombies out of the plane, destroying the plane's turbine in the process. The plane crashes, with Segen and an injured Gerry as the only apparent survivors. They arrive at the facility, where Gerry deduces that the infected do not bite people who are already ill or injured, since they would be unsuitable as hosts for viral reproduction. He volunteers to test a terminal but curable pathogen on himself to see if his idea works. However, the wing in which the pathogens are stored is now overrun with over 80 zombies, due to a doctor accidentally infecting himself and his colleagues. Gerry fights his way through the zombies into the pathogen storage vault, injects himself with a sample, and successfully returns to the main lab without being attacked. Seeing that his "camouflage" theory works, the doctors rejoice and immediately treat him.
Gerry returns to his family, now relocated to a safe zone at Freeport, Nova Scotia. A "vaccine" derived from deadly pathogens is developed that can act as camouflage for the troops battling the infected, and for fleeing civilians. As human offensives begin against the zombies, humanity now has hope, but Gerry notes that, "This isn't the end, not even close."
