World War Z: Unrated (2013) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

World War Z: Unrated (2013) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Sitting down to watch World War Z again after a few years what strikes me is just how intense the unrated cut of the film is.  The opening salvos of the film – from the traffic jam to the apartment block escape and even through to Jerusalem – are edge of seat.  And in fact those moments (and the several other extended and alternate takes) help the film work much better than it’s PG13 release which always felt less than the sum of its parts (I mean a bloodless Zombie film is pretty pointless).  It’s still flawed, with the heavily reshot last act still falling short of the far more dour and downbeat ending that was planned, but for sure World War Z works far better than I originally gave it credit for.

Best Bit: Apartment block escape

Worth A Rewatch: Yes

If You Liked this Try: 28 Days Later, Dawn Of The Dead (2004), Train To Busan

Patient Zero (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Patient Zero (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Patient Zero is part 28 Days later, part Day Of The Dead. The problem is the film feels like a bottle episode of a TV series, created to save money, with almost no outside shots and an ending that just happens without really resolving anything.  Also considering the actors involved (Smith, Dormer) the acting is pretty rubbish, saved only by a really fun turn by  Stanley Tucci as a super infected.  There’s good idea here (although it treads very close to films we’ve seen before) but the films budget (or lack of) does little to help realise these ideas.

Best Bit: Stanley Tucci

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: 28 Days Later, Day Of The Dead, Train to Busan
