The quick and the dead World War Z'

Film offers waves of zombies, little else

As a critic, there are movies that you look forward to because you think they are going to be good and movies that you dread because you think they are going to be bad. There are always a couple of films in every season that have the stink of failure about them. Sometimes they are poorly conceived, other times they are decent projects torpedoed by bad personnel and/or financial decisions.

I've been very vocal about my misgivings regarding 'World War Z,' Brad Pitt's pet zombie action movie based on the 2005 Max Brooks novel. Everything I had heard cost overruns, multiple rewrites, a last-minute replacement ending indicated that this would be a misfire or even an outright flop.
