June 21, 2013 (San Diego) – After a long and troubled production history going back to 2007 – none of which needs to be rehashed here – World War Z is finally here. It’s a simple pulpy globetrotting zombie flick starring Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former member of the United Nations called into action to combat a worldwide zombie pandemic. Such a simple plot, yet it serves a movie so confounding that I may never know if it’s good or bad. If I were to look at it from every respect, it would be split right down the middle at 50%. I can make strong arguments from both sides.
