This is new Star Trek – but it’s back to doing what it does best: Boldly Going!
The trailer looked pretty slick, and Brad Pitts presence gave it instant credibility, but World War Z is pretty much Will Smith’s I am Legend, meets Tom Cruise’s War of the Worlds.
Which still makes it eminently watchable, but be in no doubt, it’s just another zombie movie, albeit filmed with a big budget.
Spoilers ahead – well Superman’s been spoilt for me, so why should you be saved? And you wouldn’t be, not by THIS Superman.
Wouldn’t it have been cooler if instead of a stereotypical English-accented villain, Kirk and co had to contend with a super-powered brown guy which, without wanting to give too much away, technically they should have, in the new movie, Star Trek – Into Darkness?
Iron Man, or rather Tony Stark appears to go all Die Hard in the third movie, not DH 3, 4 and 5, but 1 and 2 – the good ones.
While I’m at it, thought I’d write up my thoughts on two more films I managed to catch up on recently, both from my favourite genre – science-fiction.
