AllMusic Review by

Academy Award-nominated American film composer Marco Beltrami (3:10 to Yuma, The Hurt Locker, The Wolverine) crafted a disarming, aggressive, and sonically experimental score for director Marc Forster's big-screen (loose) adaptation of author Max Brooks' apocalyptic zombie-horror survival novel World War Z. Beltrami utilized offbeat instrumentation throughout the soundtrack, even going so far as to base the main theme off of the harmonic structure of the United States Emergency Alert System siren.
