Zombieland is comedy/drama (dramady?) about survivors of the zombie apocalypse.
This hilarious romp gets an 8 with half a nod toward 9.
Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is a hard-edged survivor. He believes that by avoiding real names (use your hometown), one can protect themselves from becoming to emotionally involved with their fellow travelers. The main character, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), is clearly modeled after Bleeker from Juno. He is delightful, vulnerable and witty. His list of survival tips for Zombieland are priceless. Rule #2 – Tap them twice. You’ll see… The acting was quite charming and fit the story well. The other actors performed their characters well, too. I will not go into any further detail so as not to give away the story development.
There is a huge cameo later in the movie. It was hilarious and well done. You’ll see!
As you have seen from the trailers, Zombieland is the name given to the US by Columbus after a virus turns everyone into flesh-eating zombies. He meets up with Tallahassee and have zombie-filled adventures as they cross the country. As shown in the commercials, they do end up at an amusement park and have a good ol’ time…
This was a hilarious, moderately gory romp through Zombieland. Two thumbs up!
