Today, I saw the movie “Zombieland” on my day off of work. There are two movies out in theater now that I want to see. They are either “Zombieland” or Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It”. I just had to see “Zombieland” first. I want to see “Whip It” too, but I will see that next. Here is my review of “Zombieland”.
Plot/Synopsis: Two men who are named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) team up to try and survive their life, when the world is taken over by zombies that eats human flesh. Columbus dreams of falling in love with a girl if he ever finds a human one alive, while Tallahassee’s only mission is to eat a snack called a Twinkie which is very hard to find. Later in the film, the two men team up with these two young girls, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who are better at fighting off the zombies then the two men are. Plus, there is a very special surprise celebrity cameo guest that won’t be revealed in this review. You will have to see the film yourself to find out.
As expected, I thought the movie was very fun and entertaining, it was great. The movie was funny as hell, and had laughs all the way through. It’s also a mix of horror and action. I thought it was more of an action movie than anything though. The action scenes in the film were brilliant.
The zombies in the film were pretty well made. I wasn’t bored at all in this movie and had a smile on my face throughout the whole film. I was most impressed by Woody Harrelson’s acting in this film. His acting was so good in it.
It told a good story too. This film made you really wonder what it would be like if living dead people really took over this world in real life. I don’t think this is a type of film that George A. Romero would have made. This film was completely different from Romero’s style. I think this was one of the best new zombie movies I’ve seen in a long time.
As far as who is the celebrity guest appearance that made a cameo in the film, I’m not gonna say…but I can give you a few clues…
This guy recently did voice overs for a video game based on a popular movie. He used to be an SNL actor. He was the first special guest on David Letterman’s “The Late Show” in 1982.
“Zombieland” was a blast, fuckin’ loved it! I would reccomend you to see it before it stops playing!
Score for “Zombieland” = **** (4 stars as in “Excellent”)
