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.

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...
A nice comedic take on the zombie apocalypse.
I expected more from this because of its great beginning but then everything went flat and boring and I just watched it through so I could say I've seen it. Luckily this got a little bit better towards the end. This had a good idea but its execution doesn't work out very well. Bill Murray's cameo is horrible, luckily there was Woody Harrelson to save what is left to save. OK there were some good things in this too: zombies were looking wonderfully horrible and there were blood and ripped human flesh and they sometimes had used creative ways of killing zombies. But I don't know if it was a good thing that they copied another horror movies, some of them worked nicely though. OK movie to see it once.
É estranho ver um "horror comedy movie" com melhores ideias narrativas de design de som que a maior parte dos filmes intelectos europeus..
I was really surprised by this film... expecting a kinda low budget, kinda boring movie with uninteresting characters but I was completely wrong. Zombieland was awesome to say the least! Everything from the effects to the soundtrack and Bill Murray was excellent. My only complaint would be that the ending scene seems kinda rushed. Sure it had some nice action but they were hardly in the theme park that is advertised everywhere. If they showed more of what can happen in a zombie apocalypse set in a mother f***ing theme park (!) it wouldve been perfect. Maybe another half and hour added to the run time was in order. Still a very fun movie! Watch if you are in need of some mindless violence and decent comedy.
Just edges out Shaun of the Dead for my favorite Zombie movie, and is also one of my all time favorite comedies. This movie is so much fun!
I was very late to the party with this one, but I saw it on Netflix and decided it was finally time to watch this and boy, it didn't disappoint.
It's hysterically funny. The four leads are all terrific actors but you see just how good they are when they're all together. They have great chemistry as an ensemble and this movie really caught fire when the girls were introduced.
The screenplay also needs a shout-out. It was marvelous.
This movie might just have the best cameo I have ever seen, which I won't mention outright just in case, but man, how fucking funny was that?
I'm not a fan of sequels as they're so often unnecessary, but I'd like to see these characters/actors again as a foursome in some way. They really were awesome.
I really enjoyed this one quite a bit. I literally laughed out loud on more then on occasion. While I liked the entire cast... Woody Harrelson made the movie for me. He just played the character perfectly. This film is definitely worth the time put in to watch it... if you never seen it I highly recommend this one.
