BWAAAAAAAAS. Brad Pitt’s World War Z Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

Brad Pitt in World War Z Drinks a Pepsi

It’s funny because it’s true.

That’s what I like most about the Honest Trailer guys. All their jabs are actually funny and spot-on. Unlike some other videos that lists “mistakes” that aren’t even actually mistakes, but just something someone decided was a mistake so they could nitpick.

Here is Screen Junkies’ take on Brad Pitt’s “World War Z”.

I have to admit, it’s pretty much everything I was thinking while watching the movie. I’m honestly not sure why horror fans thought the film was good. It was like watching cut scenes from a videogame, and I’m not even talking about the spooky survival horror games like “Silent Hill”, etc. I’m talking more along the lines of the “Call of Duty” games. That’s how “scary” the movie was.

Don’t even get me started on the awful CGI zombies. Ugh.

If I had to guess, I would say “World War Z” was sold almost entirely on the basis of the excellent trailers, because the movie itself was incredibly empty. It looked nice, don’t get me wrong, though Brad Pitt’s character should have been wearing a cape and a mask.

I did like it when the pilot guy who was supposed to wait for Pitt’s character decided to take off, though. That was easily the most logical part of the whole movie. The rest? Not so much. (Yes, even for a zombie movie.)

    Most of the Honest trailers I dislike because too often i hear them make assumptions..but this one I liked. The book was so unique and interesting to do this to it was just baffling. This plot with a few tweaks would have been awesome for “28 months Later”. Only point of contention is that the reason Brad Pitt’s character could do all that stuff is it’s stated he used to work for the U.N. as an investigator which put him into lots of life or death situations.

      They should have made him a UN secret super soldier or something. Being an “investigator” just means he went around asking lots of questions and jotting down notes.

        Normally yes, U.N. Inspectors are sometimes put into war torn areas to investigate war crimes. They also usually have a military background and are trained to be able to survive in situations such as they showed. A bit more background for the general audience would have been more of a benefit.

    I love (and subscribe on YouTube to) the ‘Honest Trailer’ guys….as well as the ‘Cinema Sins’ people….but quite often they are stretching when looking for things…other times they’re spot on. I just take it for what it is….funny jabs. In the end, it doesn’t take away my enjoyment of the “good” films. I have too much movie going experience to numb the logical skeptic in me (no homo).
