Despite a Vanity Fair article claiming the film suffered from poor communication, a budget inflation, and numerous delays, critics don't have many issues with Paramount's big budget bet.
The film's not perfect.
Rather, the PG-13 rating seems out of place.
Most reviews make a note about the goreless zombiefest.
"Not many brains get munched, but plenty of people use them."
"Conspicuously bloodless, the PG-13 rating rears its family friendly head whenever the camera gets too close for comfort."
"The bloodless limitations of a PG-13 rating are occasionally impossible to ignore."
"Aiming for a PG-13 rating deprived World War Z of the gross-out feeding scenes zombie fans love."
Here's what one fan said of the film on Rotten Tomatoes:
"It's certainly the most bloodless. Not one drop is spilled on screen, all in service of a family friendly cert. Any carnage is represented in a blurry, chaotic background."
Essentially, t his may be the bloodiest Pitt gets in the film:
