Zombieland (2009)

Director: Ruben Fieischer

Writer: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Amber Heard, Billy Murray


Story The world has been over run by zombies; Columbus (Eisenberg) a nerdy loner has set out rules for surviving Zombieland. On his travels he meets no nonsense Tallahassee (Harrelson) who enjoys just killing zombies in as many different ways a possible.


Tallahassee has an obsession with finding Twinkies, while looking in a supermarket they meet Wichita (Stone) and Little Rock (Breslin) who end up stealing their ride and weapons. Columbus and Tallahassee search for new vehicle on to car jack again but this time the four stick together and set out on a journey to an amusement park near Los Angeles.


With the rules being told as the story unfolds can the unlikely team survive and make it to through Zombieland?

Verdict This action comedy is one of the best around, never taking any scene too serious with out making it a complete joke. Even though the characters are all different they come together very well and unlike most zombie films they unite rather than fight against each other. Most scenes are set in certain building and the only big location used is the amusement park to great effect. The pop up rules are a nice touch making it feel like a story being told from a book or even video manual on surviving Zombieland.

Story Mark 9/10 Good story and well-developed characters giving great re watch value.

Action Mark 9/10 The action scene is does have a among the best zombie action scenes especially the ones in the amusement park.

Comedy Mark 9/10 Best zombie comedy movie made but its action makes it the best, as the comedy is great.

Star Performances All four leads shine hard to pick the best performance
