Film – Quick Thoughts: Zombieland

Zombieland, directed by Ruben Fleischer
Written by: Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin
My rating: 3 of 5

Zombieland is a fun film and that’s clearly all it’s trying to be, just a bunch of people bonding over zombie killing. The random Bill Murray appearance is easily the best bit, but then that’s true of pretty much any film he’s in. The main character, Columbus (everybody uses the names of their home towns to avoid getting too attached to one another), is pretty nerdy, but he survives where most other people haven’t because he has a series of rules he follows without exception, based on his experiences, common sense and zombie movies.

In fact it’s his nerdiness that gets him through the early days of the zombie apocalypse, he almost doesn’t even notice it’s happened because he doesn’t really have friends and is mostly alone, playing World of Warcraft all day instead of going outside. So if the zombie apocalypse does ever come to pass I should be okay, at least for the first few days, but once the internet goes down then that really would be the end of the world. After that I’d probably be going around doing things like this:

The most horrifying thing about the end of the world.
