Re: World War Z (the film)
Brad Pitt versus an army of zombies is about all I needed to know about the movie. No thanks, I'll pass.
I believe the point wasn't that a tank shell was useless against a zombie; it's that a tank shell isn't that useful getting rid of a group of zombies. Yes, you're smash the head or backbone of a few of them, but the vast majority will still be getting back up and/or crawling forward.

That, and used silliness of street-level ground troops against a mob. The book did have a number of faults.
