World War Z is a junky movie but not so junky. Few things are really interesting:
0. It is not about zombies but about a lethal epidemic threat.
1. Israel is the only nation to protect themselves from the epidemic threat exactly like Jewish people were way more prepared than any other people to not get sick Centuries ago.
2. The Z disease affects “healthy” people but not “sick” people establishing a link with the novel The Alienist written by Machado de Assis which show us that sick people are not necessarily sick people and healthy are not necessarily healthy.
3. If your skills are really useful in the fight against the Z, your family would be protected on a ship. Once you are not useful anymore or you are dead, you family is instantaneously out of protection and back to the epidemic zone. That is exactly what happens to U.S. soldiers’ families if they are disable or dead.
Therefore, it was a good surprise for me.
