Movie Info

A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the duo meets up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos. Reluctant partners in the battle against the undead, all four soon begin to wonder if it might be better to simply take their chances alone. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Zombieland

    There is some (probably requisite) violence in this zombie thriller, but it's also got humor, some nice touches in editing, and it's very entertaining. The cast is fantastic, with Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin all turning in performances perfectly tuned to the genre. The scenes with Bill Murray are all very funny, and one part in particular is absolutely hilarious, but I won't spoil it. Eisenberg channels Woody Allen at times with his shy awkwardness. Trying to do both comedy and horror is difficult, but director Ruben Fleischer really pulls it off. This is a fun movie to watch.

    Zombieland is a lot of fun, has cool characters and a good story. This film is pure entertainment and I would highly recommend to check it out!

    Zombieland is not dissimilar to Shaun of the Dead in its level of probing satire and bleak humour. The half indie-horror and half angsty comedy - on a level parring with Juno - Zombieland uses the undead as a metaphor for growing up, the inevitable fight between wild youth and the grey conformity of adulthood, and where else are we safe but a theme park completely devoid of all zombies. The longer I think of Zombieland the smarter it gets, but unfortunately I didn't really enjoy watching it that much enough to want to watch it again. The ever-pleasing Emma Stone was wonderful once again, however not much else is there to stifle any interest.

    "Zombieland" is a great movie with a lot of funny scenes. The pacing is perfect and the interactions between the characters will keep you engaged. One thing I particularly like is how throughout the film Columbus goes over rules on how to survive the zombie apocalypse. Double tap, now that couldn't be true enough. Also gotta love Bill Murray!
