In the early twenty-first century, zombies have taken over America. A shy and inexperienced college student in Texas has survived by following his 30 rules: such as “look in the back seat,” “double-tap,” “avoid public restrooms.” He decides to travel to Ohio to see if his parents are alive. He gets a ride with a boisterous zombie-hating good-old boy headed for Florida, and soon they confront a young woman whose sister has been bitten by a zombie and wants to be put out of her misery. The sisters were headed to an LA amusement park they’ve heard is zombie free. Can the kid from Ohio get to his family? And what about rule thirty one? –IMDb
Fun ride. Harrelson gives a nuanced perf; He's older than the other characters, and more affected by the apocalypse..Nice to see Stone's trajectory in film, as she grows as an actress; since ZL she has proven herself to be one to watch. The hands down best moments are attributed to Bill Murray; he's a joy. Eisenberg: thinks he's Woody Allen; he gets on my nerves. I liked the survival rules; The Double Tap.
Not just another zombie movie. Not a reinvention of the genre, either, but a fun ride nonetheless, even if the meta elements are a bit too much sometimes. And watch out for a great cameo.
A snakeskin-wearing Harrelson holds the entire romp through a pop culture-injected zombie universe on his back, which isn't entirely surprising. Eisenberg and Stone are underwhelming as usual (and still leaving no trace as to their popularity), but the rest of the movie is a pretty entertaining slice of trashy comedy. The jokes aren't smart, but its fun and there's blood splattering - all I wanted from "Zombieland".

I always wondered why Shaun of the Dead did not ignite a ZomCom wave. Maybe becaue it was British and quite off-beat, but the more reason for Hollywood to create a remake ? Zombieland is a quirky Zombie… read review
