This place is so dead
Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) doesn't have fears. If he did, he'd kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, they're about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.

I am incapable of not liking this film.
Not Quite Hoop-Tober: Day 28
Audio commentary mini-series – part 4
There has been a recent resurgence in popularity over the past few years in the horror/comedy subgenre. Whatever the cause, the majority are pure horror films merely with a sense of humor. There might be some laughs, but the meal still tastes like fear. Zombieland is exactly the other way around: it's a broad comedy soup with dashes of zombie dystopia mixed in. There are zombies at the start and end of the movie, but in the middle it's all about the humans.
Of course this doesn't mean either that the film doesn't deserve its horror classification or that fans of the genre won't find plenty to like. There's…
This was a rewatch, and didn't really enjoy it anywhere near as much this time round. As a comedy I don't think it was a patch on Shaun of the Dead and suffered from pacing issues throughout. The last 15 minutes were great, and the first 20 minutes were good too, but I really felt it got quite a bit boring in places in between. Too much melodrama and not enough comedy genius or zombies! If it wasn't for Bill Murrays cameo spicing things up a little in the middle then I feel that this movie wouldn't have been quite as well recieved as it was.
And that's all I have to say on it really. It brought out a few chuckles, and the ending gave a little excitement but apart from that, it was a fairly average movie with a script that wasn't quite as clever as I remembered. Good gore effects though. 6/10
When it comes to comedies that feature Zombies it's hard to look past Edgar Wright's Shaun Of The Dead on the laughter stakes. It captured the balance between comedy and some over-the-top gory greatness to stunning effect in what really was the first film of a new genre. Ruben Fleischer would follow the exact same path only with a bigger budget and the emphasis on some show stopping Zombie kills.
When America is torn apart by a Zombie apocalypse only a few humans are left as they battle to avoid becoming a snack for the un-dead. Told from the point of view of Jesse Eisenberg's "Columbus", he has tongue-in-cheek style rules that have kept him alive so far. Traveling back…
Why's Emma Stone holding a chainsaw in this poster?
She doesn't wield one at any point during the film, does she? Or did I phase out at that point? As Woody Harrelson says at one point here, "That's false advertising!"
You know, I'm going to seem like a complete hypocrite here considering all the moaning I've done recently about films being too long - but Zombieland is too short. I'm not saying it should have been, like, an hour longer or anything but just 10 or 15 minutes just to boost a couple of the ideas here might have saved it all from feeling like it ended rather abruptly, because that's what…
I don't know how often I've seen this movie. It has all the things that I dig: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, bloody violence with lots of blood, the geek gets the hot girl, girls kicking ass and taking names, Zombies (DUH!), cool visual design, a new approach to a well-known theme, hilarious one-liners, inspired use of theme parks, best cameo in at least forever, Woody Harrelson discussing Hannah Montana. I could go on...
Noch immer zählt Ruben Fleischers 'Zombieland' zu einer der großartigsten Zombie-Komödien, auch wenn zugegebenermaßen auf diesem Sektor die Konkurrenz recht überschaubar ist, doch macht die Chose dank des wertigen Ensembles rund um Jesse Eisenberg schlichtweg immer wieder eine Menge Spaß, zumal man sich hier nicht scheut, auch mal etwas blutiger und expliziter zu Werke zu gehen, als man das im Mainstream erwarten würde. Rundherum ein überzeugendes Werk, das durchaus in einem Atemzug mit 'Shaun of the Dead' genannt werden darf, wenn der direkte Vergleich beider Filme auch gehörig hinkt.

Maybe it’s just because I’ve come fresh off the back of the so good Stake Land but I had real issues with Zombieland I hadn’t really had before, with the elements of comedy and wish fulfilment while successful on their own merits just not working for the material in my eyes as well as Stake Land’s bleak, politically charged, landscape did.
Now that isn’t to say Zombieland is bad, it’s terrifically well made with a budget to allow it to do a lot of things these kinds of movies usually can’t (although CG blood? Really?) and it has some good performances from the likes of Woody Harrelson in his element as zombie ass kicker Tallahassee and Emma Stone as Wichita…
Me encanta, la vuelvo a ver y me sigo partiendo de risa.
Not as great as I remembered describes how I felt re-watching this film. It wasn't bad or anything, but because I had seen it before, some of the jokes didn't hit.
I still view this as an inferior version of "Shaun of the Dead". They are very similar films, but "Shaun of the Dead" is clearly better.
This film has some great comedic moments and a good overall tone, but some of the jokes are very basic and simple. The only time I really laughed out loud was the Bill Murray scene, other than that it was just the occasional chuckle.
The performances are all very good! Woody Harrelson is my favorite one, he is awesome! He is badass and…
Unterhaltsam aber nichts besonderes.
I put it on mainly because Emma Stone is in it and I thought this was gonna be a pile of steaming shite. How wrong I was.
Great characters, fun action, quotable dialogue, Bill Murray cameo and of course Zombies, Zombieland Has it all.
This hilarious skewering of the walking dead genre is gross as can be, but it's also funny as hell and even -- dare I say? -- rather sweet.
Jesse Eisenberg, who I usually find pretty unappealing, is likable as a geek who manages to survive a zombie apocalypse and stays alive by following a laundry list of zombie survival rules (things like always checking the backseat and staying on top of your cardio regimen so you can outrun the undead when necessary). He comes across Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), a crazy fellow survivor with a penchant for Twinkies. This unlikely pair eventually teams up with a couple of sisters, and these individual loners who until now have believed that the key…
I've caught parts of this before and didn't think it was anything special. With the context of the whole movie however, it's up there with Shaun of the Dead as far as zombie-comedies go.
