I knew it from the beginning that I’m going to waste precious time watching this ridiculous movie. I never was fond of zombies, nor of Brad Pitt. I remember his advert to Levis 501, I didn’t know at the time it was him taking that bath on the river, the Amish girl excitedly waiting behind a tree, the focus was on the pair of jeans he has hidden under his underwear. When they launched Legends of the Fall, I was in France. I went to cinema and watch the movie in French, so his bad acting wasn’t so obvious. Actually the film was a very bad adaptation. Even Anthony Hopkins (another one who can’t ever better himself) wasn’t at his talent’s heights. Young Brad with his long hair kept hidden under the soldier hat, with the dagger in his teeth, avenged the death of his younger patriot brother, killing self handed a whole enemy battalion.
I’m almost at the middle of this short post and I haven’t yet started to talk about the zombie movie, or about the war, as it came with the title. Don’t blame me, please. Don’t waste your money! Let’s go back to Brad Pitt. So, after I saw that other flop in French, I read in the French Premiere Magazine that the guy who saved the movie was young Brad Pitt, the one who starred in that famous Levis 501 advertisement. There was a picture too, so Levis 501had another blip in sales. I’m telling all this here because it’s not likely to write too soon a whole post dedicated to Brad Pitt, so I’m going to continue with the only two movies where he acted (I loved his acting in those two): Ridley Scott‘s 12 Monkeys and Guy Richie‘s Snatch. We all liked him in another exceptional movies, the Ocean Series, and such, but he was him and George Clooney was George Clooney, nothing different.
About this one, World War Z, I think the honest trailer I have posted at the end of the article says all. It is a resume taken from youtube who will save you the cinema ticket money, the DVD money, or worse, the BluRay money. Don’t waste them, sorry I’m repeating myself, buy a book, give them to a charity, go to Zoo or to a Museum! The film has nothing logical in it. It’s just a movie with Brad Pitt and some nonsensical adventures. It is sad, it has less hope than the cannibalistic world from The Road. This movie has a special emphasis on CIA and the State of Israel who both knew about the zombie existence before the world, before UN, Brad Pitt’s character former employer. And some anti zombies, or vampires, or werewolves, if you like, preventive solution, easy to guess, but realistically exposed by David Morse, a rogue CIA agent detained somewhere in Asia because he sold weapons to North Korea. With a supernatural effort, he extracted one of his front teeth with his hand. Logical, isn’t it? No teeth, no future vampires, pardon… zombies. Brad Pitt was someone important in UN, buddy buddy with the Vice Secretary, and they wanted him back, badly.
