"Even though the film has not been released yet and we’ve only viewed 2 minutes 27 seconds of footage, the trailer for World War Z – the highly anticipated adaptation of Max Brooks’ popular zombie novel – has a weight of disappointment.
The first thing that becomes majorly obvious when watching the trailer is the emphasis on special effects – whilst movies always need to look great, the many CGI zombie-crowd shots, explosions and helicopter sequences reek of Resident Evil style shlock-horror filmmaking. We’ve seen this so many times before, and it’s instantly forgettable. Bad zombie films are churned out all the time. Do we need really just another zombie movie?"
