Format: Blu-ray
The Unrated Cut runs about 7 minutes longer than the Theatrical Cut, and primarily contains additional action shots (nothing major). Director Marc Forster has said that the Theatrical Cut IS the Director's Cut, which also unfortunately means that we will not be seeing any footage from the discarded Battle of Moscow (except for a few quick scenes in the closing montage) and the Matthew Fox subplot.

The UNRATED Cut is the one to get! It contains slightly more gore (but not gratuitously so) than the Theatrical Cut, and the action scenes are more fluid and less choppy.

I've listed the primary differences between the Unrated Cut and the Theatrical Cut below. Note, SPOILERS follow below, so read at your own risk.

1) When zombies are shot/stabbed/curb stomped/etc.., they spew CG black blood. When people are bitten, there's more CG red blood.

2) During the opening scene in Philadelphia, there are more scenes of pandemonium and zombies getting shot and/or biting humans. The segment with the red T-shirted male ("Here comes the Number 12 Train...") being bitten and transformed into a zeke is longer and more violent.

3) At the NJ Mart, when Gerry is looking for albuterol for his daughter, the camera pans down to show a dead body lying in a pool of blood, suggesting that the pharmacy employee shot him.

4) The chase scene from the alleyway to the apartment is longer and more harrowing. Gerry headshots a zombie and shoots a few others, also crushing a security guard zombie with a filing cabinet. In the theatrical cut, this zombie chase scene is instead used during the Lanes' early morning escape to the apartment's rooftop.

5) The escape scene to the apartment rooftop is now longer and more violent.

I've read the book "World War Z" and it's a superb book. When I heard they would be turning it into a movie, I figured it would be a narrative film like Pitt's "Interview with the Vampire" in order to keep with the structure of the book or a different film altogether that only shares a name. It is indeed the latter but that's completely acceptable for a variety of reasons. It would be tough to copy it word for word from the book, turn it into a movie, and keep the film under 4 hours.

Zombie films have become sort of repetitive. Either the zombies are these slow moving undead (like The Walking Dead, which is a 5 star show IMHO) or they are fairly fast moving (like 28 Days/Weeks Later). Instead, these zeds move and act almost superhuman. At points, they work almost like fire ants; they cluster together and flood themselves into whatever it is they are going after. Sure, some fall a distance that would cause every bone and organ to explode out of their skin. But if your read the book, those are the type of zeds the soldiers were fighting: superhuman strength, speed, agility, anger, and the ability for their bodies to take all the abuse you could throw at it. The film recognizes that and makes these undead the most dangerous zombies ever. If you were to encounter a herd of these, there isn't a kukri, machete, sword, or anything short of a few thousand M1 Abram tanks that would slow them down (even then, I don't think it would help).

As far as the lack of violence, or rather zombie slaying, the film itself is a different take on zombie films. There is plenty of zed killing but it keeps it to a PG-13 rating in regard to the amount of violence, blood, and gore. Instead of slaying herds and waves of undead, it focuses on finding out what and who caused it so a cure could be found.

World War Z is Brad Pitt's zombie epic about the spread of a virus that turns people into the undead, but instead of walking they sprint and create chaos with every step. Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a former UN investigator who is called into action by an old friend when the human race is on the brink of extinction. While he risks his life to look for a cure, his family (with his wife Karin played by the incredible Mireille Enos) is on a US Navy Carrier out at sea. Nations fall, people turn on each other, and it seems all is lost. But, this is not the case as Gerry begins piecing together clues and starts a search that will change everything, leading to the "war."

WWZ is a truly impressive movie, especially considering it's a PG-13 zombie movie. While I do like the gore in a zombie film, this movie proved you don't need it. The zombies were frightening, the realistic science was there, warfare is taken into account, and overall it just felt like what would really happen if the zombie apocalypse happened. Marc Forster's directing was superb, showcasing both the epic scale of a global panic and war, while showing us the smaller battles and struggles that are happening everywhere else. This movie has the perfect transition, going from the massive blockbuster to a classic zombie movie setting. When it comes to acting, it was great. There were only two moments where the dialogue didn't quite match (when Gerry talks to Warmbrunn about the wall in Jerusalem), and even though there won't be any Awards the acting was still great. The visuals were happily polished, being more realistic, especially having both CG and practical zombies, with amazing make-up. You can see my review of the musical score on the soundtrack's page (by Marco Beltrami). But then there is the cinematography.
