Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has survived the plague that has turned mankind into flesh-devouring zombies because he’s scared of just about everything. Gun-toting, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) has no fears. Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other’s company. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin co-star in this double-hitting, head-smashing comedy.

Not going in expecting too much (I mean, you can't -- can't -- CAN'T -- top Shaun of the Dead) I was pleasantly surprised by Zombieland and its stellar American cast. Jesse Eisenberg, for anyone who hasn't seen Adventureland yet (shame on you!) is a talented young actor who can (gasp!) actually portray a character rather than a charicature! Cera-like in his demeanor, he portrays young Columbus Ohia as a smart nerdy survivor with heart. Everybody is beginning to learn that Emma Stone, who plays Wichita Kansas, is more than just a pretty gace. Abigail Breslin (Little Rock Arkansas) and Woody Harrelson (Tallahasee Florida) have strong resumes that speak for themselves. Woody fans will enjoy his return to a tough guy role, but one not without history and heart.
What makes this movie different and special was its unique usage of Columbus' "rules" of survival in the post-Zombie world, or "Zombieland" as he calls it. These rules, recurring through the entire movie, are used in clever and unexpected ways to enhance the danger or comedy. But will his rules enable our hearty band of survivors to stick together?
There's also a stellar uncredited cameo which may make the movie worth the price of admission to some fans.
The movie culminates with a showdown to beat all showdowns, four against an entire amusement part full of zombies. It's every zombie-fan's dream situation. You're going to love it. Trust me.
5 stars. A unique and fun comedy-horror-adventure-drama.
But God bless Ruben Fleischer, he managed to wring some comedy out of a world overrun by brain-eating abominations -- despite the bleak setting, the quirky way it's presented (complete with "zombie rules") keeps it from ever becoming too grim. Also, there is a lot of splattergore, snappy dialogue, Twinkie lust and the occasional Bill Murray cameo.
Two months ago, a strain of mad cow disease mutated into a zombie plague. Ever since his hot neighbor went zombie and tried to eat him, "Columbus" (Jesse Eisenberg) has been traveling to Ohio. But he ends up having to drive with "Tallahassee" (Woody Harrelson), a hot-headed gun-slinging zombie-killer with a deep love for Twinkies and an even greater love for killing zombies.
Then the two men get hijacked by con artists "Wichita" (Emma Stone) and her younger sister "Little Rock" (Abigail Breslin), who are seeking "Pacific Playland" in Los Angeles... which for some reason they think is zombie-free. The little group grows closer while they take shelter in a Hollywood mansion, but are their bonds strong enough to keep them together when zombies attack?
"Zombieland" is one of those rare comedies that takes a really bleak subject and makes it incredibly quirky and funny. Yes, there's a lot of violence -- the climax is basically one big zombie-sploding celebration of gore -- but the movie never loses its quirky sense of humor. Exhibit A: Tallahassee's ongoing quest for spongy cream-filled Hostess goodness.Read more ›
Everyone becomes a zombie with the standard zombie contact lenses and the standard zombie propensity to slurp on stringy flesh.
In the case of this DVD, the best parts are the Blu-Ray advertisements. However if you insist on going further I suggest that you skip straight to the extras and just listened to the voiceover commentaries were everyone pats their own back.
If you're propensity, watch this sort of thing I still suggest you skip this film and if you must have a zombie fix of this sort be sure to watch "Zombie Campout" (2002) as even though this is also an awful movie it has more social redeeming features.
Oh all right, watch it. But it's not as if I didn't warn you. Bill Murray looks old and shot in this film.
Two weaknesses: though the writers are clearly going for tough and independent, the female characters initially come off as opportunistic and mercenary; completely unlikeable. Once they've been set up, however, they're allowed to grow a little (until they're then thrust into the tired role of damsels in distress).
Second: an odd interlude featuring a Big Name Cameo is stretched thin, drags on, and is ultimately a let-down. I actually skip these scenes during rewatches.
That said, don't let the above-mentioned nit-picks dissuade you, Zombieland is a fanatastic addition to the horror-comedy ranks.
