Oh Brad! This zombie flick is brain dead: CHRIS TOOKEY reviews World War Z
UK Daily Mail ^ | June 2, 2013 | Chris Tookey

Posted on 06/03/2013 7:11:06 AM PDT by C19fan

Movies don’t come bigger than this, and zombie flicks tend to come an awful lot smaller. In Shaun of the Dead, the undead had to content themselves with snacking off a handful of British actors in a deserted pub. Here, it’s the future of humanity at stake. This time, Brad Pitt is here to save us, and the skies are soon full of crashing helicopters, screaming jets and stuntpeople being sucked out of aircraft. So what’s it like? Well, it’s awfully like all the epic action films made by Roland Emmerich, ranging from the nearly sublime (Independence Day) to the totally ridiculous (10,000 BC). It’s slap-bang in the middle of that quality spectrum, round about the level of Godzilla and not quite as classy as The Day the World Ended.

Looks this movie will compete with the Will Smith crap fest as the BOMB of the year.

OK ... I read the review.

I get the impression that the reviewer is a pompous, pretentious jackass who has never actually built, made or created anything ... ever ... in his entire life.

I'll definitely see this film.

In the theatre.

10,000 BC was brilliant.

Anyone who has enjoyed Robert E Howard loved it. Maybe a niche market, but still....

Like most movie critics.

We’ll see it and judge for ourselves.

Hmmm. What they needed was a gay sex scene.

Obama did the review? If true, its represents the most work the waste of oxygen has done in his worthless life.

Damn, I was hoping this would be good. I mean what a great concept, a world war against democrats. Shouldnt it have been called World War D though?

Really? That movie got just about the worst reviews I ever read, something like 5% on Rotten tomatoes.

It was a fun movie to watch but nothing high brow. It certainly wasn’t the worst movie ever made by a long long shot. I’ll watch it again on reruns unlike most of the trash from Hollyweird.

Obviously, those in the picture are “fast zombies”...

which we should prepare for, because the “zombies” we’re going to face will be the ones with “FAIL” on their last EBT swipe, not the walking dead.
