World War Z (Trailer #1) Review
It’s a big budget zombie apocalypse film so regardless of how the trailer goes I am going to be in a cinema watching this. The trailer starts off pretty good with a nice little family in the car and all that then all hell breaks loose on the streets. However it uses every action trailer does now which is the Inception BWOOOOONNNGG, seriously stop using that noise on every trailer. Carrying on, the next few flashing shots show the global effects of the zombies and that this is very wide spread, well so I am with the film so far. Then about one minute and 19 seconds into the trailer you see the zombies and well it’s not good, when I say not good I actually mean awful. At some point in the production of this film one of production team said to the other “how much CGI should we use” and gets a reply “All of it, all of the CGI”. I just can’t believe the sprinting hoard of CGI zombies that somebody being paid too much said was okay got into this film.
Max Brooks’ epic tome of a fictional time of global war against the undead is brought to life in this Paramount Pictures/Plan B production. Quantum of Solace’s Marc Forster directs from a script by Changeling scribe J. Michael Straczynski. Brad Pitt stars as a journalist covering the disaster, with Mireille Enos, Anthony Mackie, and Bryan Cranston heading up the rest of the cast.
Top 5 Scenes
5. It’s a Big Deal
This is the first shot of a wider effect of the zombies as you see an open view of thousands of people running out of a park in New York City on rush hour traffic. I liked this shot because it’s a little haunting that you probably couldn’t get away with so many people compressed together like that, most zombie films have relatively few people running around but this takes it in a bigger immediate scale of an outbreak of Zombies.
4. Zombies Attacking Helicopter
I can just see this scene being very fun to watch in the cinema and it looks to be set around a large hoard of zombies attacking the military, which if there is any benefit to having enormous hoards of CGI Zombies it’s a good few shots of them being blown to bits by the military.
3. Blur of CGI Zombies
*Tim is now slow clapping*really good job there guys, can’t wait to pay £7 to see that again*Sarcasm*taking tips from I am Legend I see*sincere*. Ignoring the fact that zombies don’t run how bad could they have made this scene look! The movement looks so fake it’s embarrassing! Actually I am going to talk about running zombies, the problem? They don’t look dead. When you make the zombies run they look healthier than I do. So what I see in this scene is a bunch of crazy people running at machine guns.
2. Well There Goes The Neighbourhood
Dropping the bombs on the dead and watching them fly. It’s what this film is probably going to be relying on to gain audience’s attention. On that subject I will warn that after endless rewrites and productions problems that this film will most likely be terrible in every other category other than action and maybe not that.
1. Pyramid of Zombies
Are you serious! What are they ants!? Zombies aren’t organised or clever and they sure as hell don’t work together. I feel like if I don’t forget about the stupid zombie effects this film will drive me mad so let’s just think they are possessed people. That actually helps a little, I feel the rage subsiding. Still this shot looks to be an interesting shot in the film, so we will just have to wait and see.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
