Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Directed by Burr Steers
Burr Steers makes the best of it by deploying the devices available on screen but denied on the page: reaction shots, some 15-certificate jumps and droll underplaying by a game cast… The second half then crashes in a heap of predictably bigger business. Steers shovels on extra baggage about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, while contradictory zombie lore is invented off the cuff.

A bloated mess that deservedly tanked at the box office. Based on the best-selling mashup by Seth Grahame-Smith, who grafted zombies onto Jane Austen’s classic novel, the movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither. There’s never a sense of fear or peril; everyone is too chirpy, including the damned.

Tired is a useful way to describe how you’ll feel while watchingPride and Prejudice and Zombies. Lovely Lily James and Sam Riley are forced to spit out an excessive amount of dialogue, which, thanks to the breakneck pacing of the film, gives Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s love-hate romance the feeling of one of those commercials where two people talk at each other as quickly as possible about cell phone plans.
