Zombie gentrification

New Brad Pitt vehicle is a competent thriller, but so self-consciously cool you may lament the loss of innocence in a genre that used to be schlocky and subversive

- +

Like hungry ants or rabid piranhas, the hordes of zombies in World War Z swarm and sprint and leap at their targets with biological ferocity, defying the George A. Romero rule about the walking dead being essentially lethargic. The sight of these terrifying multitudes racing along streets or piling up like columns of wriggling maggots are some of the moneyed shots in a movie that views zombification as a health problem on a global scale. To fight the undead, syringes are more useful, apparently, than guns.
