WORLD WAR Z 1G2 Family film: Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos as Gerry and Karin Lane on the run from the zombie hordes in World War Z. CINEMADDICT WITH KYLIE KLEIN-NIXON ' the tale of an investigator putting the pieces together after humanity survives the zombie holocaust is altogether more cogent, suspenseful and - thank god - cinematic than the novel Zombie holocaust extravaganza, World War Z, proves Holly- wood is still a long way from delivering a definitive double tap'' on undead creepies -- although it's been a while since a zombie flick was this scary or beautifully put together. Former UN investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) has given up life at the front line to be with his family, but when an outbreak of a new super virus sends the country into chaos, Jerry is forced to trade his unique skills for their safety. Now in a battle against time to find the outbreak's ground zero, Jerry must travel from Korea to Israel to Wales, evading the undead tide in the search for a cure. Based on the book by Max Brooks, director Marc Fors- ter's (Quantum of Solace) take on the tale of an investigator putting the pieces together after humanity survives the zombie holocaust is altogether more cogent, suspenseful and -- thank god -- cinematic than the novel. Like the unholy love child of British zombie masterpiece 28 Days Later, Contagion and The Walking Dead, WWZ lands us in the middle of the action, giving the unlikeliest of horror conceits -- a tidal wave of the dead hungry for live flesh -- a context that is uncomfortably realistic. Sold by a stellar cast, the film's pace is frenetic without being out of control, the characters expertly drawn and the chatter kept to a minimum. And despite offering nothing new to the genre, it really works. Scenes in which major cities are overrun left me the most tense I have ever been in a cinema. I'm reluctant to say this is the end of zombies at the movies. It seems, like the subject matter, zombie films never die. ALSO SEEN: The Internship -- a one and a half hour advert for Google. Yikes. The Hunt -- Mad Mikkelsen at his grim best as a teacher wrongly accused of interfering with children. 1G2 This Is The End -- more vul- gar, hilarious, self-lambasting comedy from Seth Rogan and co facing the end of the world at James Franco's house. Brilliant. 1G2 THE LOWDOWN Rotary Club of Plimmerton are running a Funny Money Casino Night at the Postgate School hall at 7pm on July 6 to raise funds for their new playground.
