The zombie epic World War Z hits theaters next month, and so far the film has generated buzz mostly for its widespread script and production problems.
Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline.com recently screened the picture, observing that not since the colossal flops of John Carter and Battleship has a big-budget movie received more advance negative press for its production woes. But after the credits ran at the end of the screening, it turns out Fleming actually liked it:
“I’m no reviewer, but I can honestly say that WWZ is better than good; try a rocking, smart, pulse-pounding big-scale pandemic with raging zombies, palpable tension, and the kind of hero star turn Pitt hasn’t performed in a long time.”
Fleming is a well respected movie industry journalist, so his opinion does carry some weight. Only time will tell if zombie fans around the world agree with his assessment.
