News & Interviews for Zombieland
Critic Reviews for Zombieland
It's an okay DVD rental choice but doesn't go beyond that.
It is never properly scary. Mostly, it is just very silly, but because the film knows it is silly, it's all rather infectious and not the big, cliché-pumped bore it might otherwise have been.
Warts, entrails and all, I had a ball at Zombieland. It's 81 minutes of my kind of stupid.
Woody Harrelson has a rip-roaring time in this comic splatterfest as a redneck from hell who is out to kill zombies. It's the kind of genre acting that doesn't get much notice, but it's a gleeful rampage of a performance.
Audience Reviews for Zombieland
A highly enjoyable and funny zombie road movie that blends ironic comedy and gore fest in a way that will make you laugh out loud in many improbable moments. Also, Bill Murray and Woody Harrelson are hilarious, and I really love the soundtrack.
This movie has many things I love: it's a zombie movie, it's a road movie, it's a horror comedy, it's gory, but at the same time, it has some substance, but it's not overbearing. Mostly this movie is just really fun and hugely entertaining, which is probably the most important factor. The script is decent, and contains the right amount of wit and quirk without seeming derivative. There's sone real cleverness with the title sequence and the presentation of Columbus' "rules"-they are flashy, yet remain the punctuation, not the sentence. The performances are great. Each player is perfect for their respective roles. Jesse Eisenberg rivals only Michael Cera for the king of deadpan geeky quirk. Harrelson is having the time of his life, and Stone and Breslin prove that chicks can be pretty and kick ass, too. It isn't for me as good as Romero's stuff or Shaun of the Dead, but it takes the best from each camp, and makes it into its own little thing. The wonderful not quite a surprise cameo around the middle definitely serves as the cherry on top of a beautiful mound of ice cream, but the soundtrack kicks much ass as well- especially the usage of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands during the opening credits sequence. Obviously I recommend this movie, so do yourself a favor, and check it out. There are far worse ways to spend a night at home.
Its nice to see another Zombie/Comedy film after the success of 'Shaun of The Dead'. Featuring a superb cast of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and a fantastic cameo from *SPOILER REMOVED*. 'Zombieland' also features both creepy scenarios and nice humour. For those who are any form of zombie fan, this is a nice guide for surviving the undead.

|Tallahassee:||I hate coconut! Not the taste, the consistency.|
|Columbus:||Yeah, I shave every morning but sometimes by like 4:30 I'll have a thing. I mean, I know it's called a five o'clock shadow but sometimes I'll get it prematurely.|
