Zombieland Reviews

  • Zombieland takes full advantage of both possibilities of the species as well as the current boom in zombiephilia.

    Lisa Schwarzbaum — Entertainment Weekly

  • A minor diversion dripping in splatter and groaning with self-amusement.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • A very ridiculous film which is also a treat.

    Peter Bradshaw — Guardian [UK]

  • The humor is vicious and the supporting cast is viscous. But underlying the carnage in Zombieland is a sweetly beating heart.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • Wildly implausible, slightly scary and plot-lite though Zombieland is, it stands to add a few comic bons mots to popular parlance.

    Ruth McCann — Washington Post

  • Zombieland makes up in laughter what it lacks in screams, and the arch weariness with which it looks out at undead America hides a frisky yet disturbing message: We're closer than we think.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • Ho-hum zombie mayhem lurks around every bend, but the movie's comic tone becomes increasingly strained.

    Scott Foundas — Village Voice

  • The undead here could be a rabid group of Garfield toys; it really doesn't matter. What matters is the hyper-crisp, snappy visual pizazz (Fleischer should be tapped for a midlevel superhero flick), the laughs and how well it's all played.

    Joe Neumaier — New York Daily News

  • An improbably delicious comedy about a quartet of human survivors crossing an America that's been taken over by ravenous hordes. (There's even a Charlie Chaplin zombie working Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Chinese Theater.)

    Joe Morgenstern — Wall Street Journal

  • When it comes to genre filmmaking, Zombieland, a grisly comedy about yet another attack of the ravenous undead, does just about everything right.

    Cary Darling — Dallas Morning News

  • We won't ruin it. Let's just say that if laughter distinguishes humans from zombies, then you'll know just how human you are after the quartet's visit to a mansion in Los Angeles.

    Lisa Kennedy — Denver Post

  • ...if you weren't foolish enough to have, say, a dinner of spaghetti and meatballs in advance of seeing it, you... will have a lot of fun.

    Mary F. Pols — MSN Movies

  • Who would have guessed such a funny movie as Zombieland could be made around zombies? No thanks to the zombies.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Scattershot but sharp, this postapocalyptic road comedy gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money.

    Cliff Doerksen — Chicago Reader

  • From its inventive opening credits to a surprise cameo and accompanying laugh-riot Ghostbusters homage, the zom-com Zombieland delivers gore and gags in equally satisfying spurts, so to speak.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • It's a black-blood-spitting mugging of a movie, but it's also relentlessly funny and innovative, the sort of film that makes you writhe and laugh at the same time.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • Zombieland skimps on nothing. That includes graphic violence, naturally. But just because you don't need a lot more brain power than the zombies employ to enjoy it doesn't mean you won't enjoy it plenty.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • Harrelson's unexpected line readings and reactions sometimes elevate Zombieland to a level of inspired nonsense worthy of Shaun of the Dead.

    Dennis Harvey — Variety

  • Though both female characters are underwritten and the movie ends too soon, after a routinely action-packed final act that isn't as fresh as the rest, Zombieland is still the funniest broad comedy since The Hangover.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Zombieland is the funniest zombie movie since Shawn of the Dead, funnier even than Fido! This is a 28 Days Later played for laughs -- lots of them, endless jokes, one-liners and sight gags.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel
