Worst Traffic Jam Ever. World War Z Clip
Sigh. Some films you just can't reach. So you get a clip like we have here today.
There's just no tension in it, which is what it's reaching for and falling badly short of. See, the problem is in the set piece nature of it, the sort of video game logic of, well everyone else is screwed but there is always a magical path for the extra special snowflake protagonist. Something closing in? A truck blazes a path that the protagonist is uniquely positioned to follow. Then have the truck crash to pretend something interesting is happening. Vicious car crash, but everyone is fine because they have their main character badges firmly affixed. Oh look, there just happens to be an RV sitting there unlocked with the keys in the ignition. Let's take that! And now there's room to floor it because apparently it's a driving level now. Exactly enough zombies will get through in order for the protagonists to deal with them as the level ends.
And I don't like it anymore than you.
