DVD Review: Zombieland

"Time to nut up or shut up!"
Before Woody Harrelson earned his second Oscar nomination for The Messenger, he was the nemesis of all zombies in the 2009 horror comedy blockbuster Zombieland.

In a town overrun by the undead when a wild virus spreads, it only leaves four unbitten souls who find each other in the midst of turmoil. Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, Little Rock (yes, these are really their names) join forces to defend themselves against the likes of undead clowns, children, parents, and traffic workers to name a few. Led by Tallahassee (played by Woody Harrelson), the trigger happy zombie slayer, the foursome roam around town to end what has become the end of days. Tallahassee teaches his three proteges the secrets to killing those trapped between the living and the dead.

Though it was entertaining, mostly due to Harrelson's clever one-liners and onscreen presence, Zomebieland really fell flat and didn't keep my attention. It's an okay DVD rental choice but doesn't go beyond that. It was quite silly.

Reel Talk rating: C-

Yes! I really didn't get all the hype this movie got. It barely got a few chuckle from me and it really wasn't all that funny. I wasn't as harsh as you though and gave it a B- ;)

I should start doing letter grades instead of star ratings.. I think I gave it 3.5/5? I was really drunk when I saw this film, and the Ghost Buster things made me laugh. But the plot did get annoying after awhile.
