Nice to see the ol' hometown ravaged by a bunch of hungry dead people. Not since 12 Monkeys have I seen a more impressive destruction of the city of brotherly love. Too bad none of it was actually filmed here--would've been fun getting into fights with the extras visiting bars in their zombie make-up (Common in California, no?). And by "fights" I mean peacefully conversing with my fellow man about social issues, domestic beers and foreign policy.
It looks kind of appealing on the action level, but I am worried about the execution of the cgi and how the zombies are portrayed. My only concern or I have been told, it really deviates from the book and is only "World War Z" in name only.
I love zombies, but I think people are really start to use it as a cash cow and than the artistic merit go down. I think Zombieland was also the last good mainstream zombie movie to come out recently. There have been some good indie zombie movies, but I feel that zombie movies should be given a break, and only come back if the story is good.
Plus you have markets that want to cater to fans who occasionally like horror and not love it. So any type of stupid zombie make up, story, etc will be consumed no matter what. Also I have trouble with Brad Pitt, you know for someone who is on the run and fighting zombies he still looks just a tad too pretty.
