Zombieland, Review

In a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, a dysfunctional group of survivors with clashing personalities must find a way to get along without killing each other or themselves.

I had doubts about this movie. Not the kind of liking or disliking it, but whether the movie was scary or not. The trailers are showing that's a comedy and I have to agree.

About the characters:
Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is the zombie killer, the I-kill-zombies-and-I-like-it type of guy. He has a reason to hate zombies and he kills with style.
Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is the nerd zombie killer. He has rules which follow in order to survive and he believes in them more than having fun.
Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) are the smart ones. They used to be thieves when people existed and they are thieves now. They used to be the two of them, but this changes after meeting the other two.

The movie wasn't scary, but thumbs-up to the make-up artists, the people who were dressed as zombies looked so real.
The directing part and the dialogues were really good too. I liked the way Columbus' rules appeared on the screen and they were repeating, even when Tallahassee was doing something opposite his rules, like "I told you so".

A weird thing, I felt the scene was like a prophecy to Jesse Eisenberg's future: They were all sitting together and they were telling what's the best thing about leaving in Zombieland. Columbus said that he liked the fact that he doesn't have to update his Facebook Profile. A year later Jesse Eisenberg stars in a movie based on the creaton of Facebook.
And something I really liked: They were in L.A. and they wanted a place to stay, so they decide to stay in a famous person's house and they started to argue in which famous person's house they should stay in. OK, I said enough, sorry if I spoiled anything.

Bottom line, I recommend you the movie, it was really good and it had some really funny moments. Now, Nut Up or Shut Up.


  1. The first time i watched the movie i didn't really liked it.
    Then i watched it again with Johnny...a totally different experience! I actually enjoy it XD
    Favorite part was when they destroyed that store and smashed everything!!

    Either way, Colombus was the only character that i didn't like.

    And i wanna say that i hate zombies. A Facebook test told me that in a Zombieland will last only a week! :(

  2. I only watched Zombieland recently too. I loved all the characters!

  3. i haven't watched this one, thanxx for the recommendation, maybe i'll give it a try !

  4. I LOVED this movie!! so funny double tap!
