Topic: World War Z fails to deliver
Just watched World War Z and it left me wondering what the $190 million dollars was spent on.
Much of it was CGI, and a dreary story about a family man (Pitt) stumbling across an anti virus that wasn't really an anti virus.
Sorry, but I laughed at the girl having her hand chopped off, who then after losing about two pints of blood managed to run about half a mile or more to catch a plane.
If that wasn't bad enough, the plane crash was ridiculously comical. Funny how Pitt and the chick with one hand escaped without a scratch. Everyone else died. Yeah, right... Sorry excuse me, I forgot, Pitt had a 16 inch long chunk of metal through his stomach .
Again, he and the girl walked yet more miles into the village. Laughable. And after that they were back fighting zombies in the lab seemingly a day later.
Even in horror there has to be a certain amount of plausibility. Look at Dawn of the Dead and Land of the Dead. Horror yes, but it wasn't absurdly ridiculous as this WWZ is. You could see the events in those two other classic movies happening.
WWZ had so much potential, all down the drain. And Brad Pitt, sorry the guy cannot act for toffee. He sleepwalks through this entire movie.
