World War Z: A really good movie except for that one gigantic plot flaw

... which is a spoiler of sorts so I will put it below the break ...

So you've got Brad Pitt in Israel where the Mossad figured out the zombie threat faster than everybody, right?

And because they're paranoid, the Israelis built this gigantic wall around Jerusalem that's about 100 feet tall ...

... which the zombies eventually swarm over in the old "mound of bodies" trick because ...

One of the best military forces on Earth had neither sentries, nor cameras, not explosives rigged on the wall?????

In fact, there is no place on the wall for troops or weapons to be situated so that they have a field of fire outside the wall???????

And the helicopters flying patrols outside the wall never actually see ten zillion zombies piling up against the war???????

And the Israeli Army, once there is a breach in the wall has no claymores, not flame throwers, artillery, no internal barbed wire or fortifications--no NOTHING to try to hold back the zombie horde ...

Actually, a worldwide virus that creates zombies in ten seconds is more believable.

But it IS still a fun movie.

I don't know what it is but I'm all in on these zombie moves.

When we were leaving my wife said she thought it was "a little long", I was thinking it could have been 2 hours longer with just a break for a bathroom run and some more popcorn.
