my favourite film: world war Z

  World War Z is a novel by Max Brooks. It is a follow-up to his previous book, The Zombie Survival Guide. The book was released on September 12, 2006, with a movie based on it released on June 21, 2013.

  The story begins in China after a zombie bites a young boy. The Chinese government attempts to contain the infection but it is spread to other countries and there is an outbreak in South Africa where finally brings the plague to public attention.

  As the infection spreads, only Israel initiates a nationwide quarantine and closes its borders. Pakistan and Iran destroy each other in a nuclear war. The United States of America does little to prepare; and a period known as the "Great Panic" begins.

In South Africa, the government adopts a plan which calls for the establishment of small "safe zones", areas surrounded by natural boundaries and cleared of zombies.

During a conference near Honolulu, most of the world's leaders indicate they want to wait out the zombie plague, but the US President successfully argues that the only way to survive physically and psychologically is to go on the offensive. Determined to lead by example, the United States military reinvents itself to meet the specific challenges so special equipment is implemented and the troops are retrained.

  Ten years after the "official" end of the zombie war, millions of zombies are still active and the geopolitical landscape of the Earth has been transformed. The United Nations fields a large military force to eliminate the remaining zombies. Major effects of the war are a drastic reduction in the human population, and the devastation of many environments and species, humans and zombies.

  The movie was produced in 2013 and directed by Marc Forster. It was starred by Brad Pitt, David Morse, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and Mireille Enos. The acting was great and the special effects were amazing The music was really good and the ending was surprising
