World War Meh: A Conversation

Recently my occasional writing partner Lou Harry and I went to see World War Z. I knew the plot was radically different from the (awesome) book, but I had no idea they chucked everything. Lou and I discussed the film in an Indianapolis Business Journal piece, which you can read here. The part that bothered me most was that Brad Pitt suffered a very serious injury about halfway through the movie, but within 10 minutes was back on his feet, punching zombies. It only works that way on the silver screen, folks. I call it the Prometheus Effect. All you sci-fi fans know exactly what I'm talking about.
