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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
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
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...
"Zombieland" can be summed up in one word. FUN! I was on the edge of my seat(or bed, whatever) during the whole runtime of this movie. I was laughing my ass off, enjoying zombie slaying, but mainly having FUN! Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson were amazing. Also, the cameo was really, really FUN! One of the best zombie movies of all-time! It will surely become a classic!
Could there be a better road trip/comedy/zombie movie than "Zombieland?" Yes, if there was one that didn't take a tone-shifting interlude to a certain movie star's house. That quibble aside, "Zombieland" is a clever and perfectly cast mix of amusement, heart, and zombie mayhem.
“Time to nut up or shut up!”

As this is my 100th review, I feel the need to commemorate it with one of my personal favourites of the last decade. Whilst I wouldn’t label it as one of the best I’ve seen of all time, it’s undoubtedly one of the best within the genre. Without further ado I give you my take on Zombieland, the greatest Zom-Com since Shaun of the Dead.
I think it’s fair to say it’s a rare occurrence indeed for me to completely agree with the critics on any film. The general consensus on Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland, however, seems to proclaim it as a masterpiece of the macabre, and I simply couldn’t agree…
This is one of my favorite movies
There's no getting around it: Zombies are funny. I think they stopped being scary for me along toward the end of "Night of the Living Dead." OK, maybe in a few others, like "28 Days Later." They're the Energizer Bunnies of corpses, existing primarily to be splattered. But who would have guessed such a funny movie as "Zombieland" could be made around zombies? No thanks to the zombies.
The movie is narrated by a guy played by Jesse Eisenberg, named after his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, who is making his way back home across a zombie-infested America. The landscape is strewn with burned-out cars and dead bodies. He encounters another non-zombie survivor, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson). The two team up, not…
Muy divertida. Esos detalles que parece que no tienen sentido dado el marco apocalíptico de la historia, hacen que sea mucho más disfrutable por la sencillez en las características de los personajes.
No sabía que habría segunda parte, ojalá sea tan buena como ésta.
This is a really fun flick! Zombies, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Amber Heard and the great Bill Murray! How can you go wrong with that?! Everytime I'm at a grocery store and I see a box of Twinkies, I think of this film. lol
GODDAMN IT, BILL FUCKING MURRAY!
The first time I watched this I was blown away by the pacing of it. Now I'm more aware of the rhythms of the movie I enjoy it a little less but it is still a super fun film. It wasn't my choice but I've definitely been forced to sit through a lot worse for the sake of other people. I still think Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin's characters aren't given any opportunities to be actually sympathetic so they just end up as kind of annoying people who keep getting in the way of Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson being actually fun. Ruben Fleischer isn't great at writing well-rounded female characters, huh?
Hot damn. Still rocks. I don't know about you guys, but this goes into my personal cult cannon.
Um excelente filme meia-boca.
É dar o play e deixar-se levar. Esquecer os problemas e ver tiros e tiros.
Foda-se que as balas são infinitas, foda-se que elas só acabam quando convém ao roteiro. Foda-se tudo.
É uma obra de arte entre todos os filmes meia-bomba que existem por aí.
Honesto, exceto pelo poster que mostra uma serra elétrica que não aparece.
I think I'd only seen the first half of this before. Not that good. If I didn't like Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson, I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. The Bill Murray bit is okay.
