FEARING THE KNOWN IN "WORLD WAR Z"
Directed by Marc Forster
"I THOUGHT I WAS READY FOR ANYTHING. (He looks out at the valley, his eyes unfocused.) WHO IN HIS RIGHT MIND COULD HAVE BEEN READY FOR THIS?"
In the movie “World war Z”, the most memorable character would be the dad. He is always thinking of his family and to sacrifice things like being with his family so he can go help fight back at the zombie outbreak, but it’s all to keep his family in a safe place. There are many things that make him memorable like that he thinks fast. When the world was being filled with zombies he thought quickly that he needed things from the grocery store and thought about who he needed to get in contact with in order to be safe and save his family. He is a very strong individual and has a lot of skills. He seemed very high up with a lot of connections so it was easy for him to make everything happen like a helicopter coming to rescue them. Theme would be fear overall because even though sometimes he showed bravery, he's still fearing everything that came his way. He wouldn't be able to show bravery if there wasn't fear first. The setting of the movie was all around the world traveling on planes and helicopters. Filmed in England, and Glasgow, Philadelphia.

He was trained to be in the air force and thought he had prepared for the zombie outbreak but when you think about it, you can only do so much to prepare and fight back.
I Am Legend (2007) - Official Movie Trailer
I chose to put the movie trailer for "I Am Legend" because I think the two movies relate to each other in a lot of ways. The main theme would be fear and they both have the ultimate goal of fighting back, winning, and staying alive. Both main characters in the movies have amazing survival skills and face challenges to keep their family safe.
