Zombieland: The Quest for a Twinkie

Hello everybody! Today’s review is a super fun one. Zombieland!

ZOMBIELAND

DIRECTOR: Ruben Fleischer

STARRING:  Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin

GENRE: Zombie Comedy

YEAR: 2009

COUNTRY: United States

Zombieland is a hilarious satire comedy about the zombie apocalypse. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigal Breslin. Zombieland follows Columbus (Eisenberg), a college shut in, Tallahassee (Harrelson), a father who lost his baby and is looking for a Twinkie. They team up and eventually join forces with Wichita (Stone) and Little Rock (Breslin) We eventually follow all of these characters as they seek for a safe haven from the undead.

Zombieland is a very entertaining film to watch, as there is enough humor and drama to actually enjoy the characters. The chemistry between the main cast is amazing here and is a definite factor in this type of film. We actually have to believe that these characters have learned to adapt to each other and if there was no chemistry whatsoever that would make it horrible to watch. What I really enjoyed about Zombieland is that the film is entertaining as shit to watch. Woody Harrelson is perfect for gun toting Tallahassee and his quest for a Twinkie is the best character motivation I have seen in a while.

There really isn’t anything negative to say about Zombieland. Some of the shots are hard to see due to a shaky cam, but it is compensated because many of the shots look awesome. I don’t really like as Little Rock, but I guess she fills the role. I felt that Columbus’s “Rules to Live By” could easily be dropped from the film. I know it is apart of his character, but I felt it was unnecessary.

PROS:

  • Zombie kill of the week.
  • Harrelson, Stone, Eisenberg performances.
  • Zombies!
  • Bill Murray cameo.

CONS:

  • Abigal Breslin performances.
  • Zombie film cliches.
  • Rules.

SCORES: 7.7 / 10
