Zombieland (2009)

Director: Ruben Fleischer

Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Abigail Breslin, Bill Murray

After a virus turns most people into zombies, the world's surviving humans remain locked in an ongoing battle against the hungry undead. Four survivors, Tallahassee and his cohorts Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock, abide by a list of survival rules and zombie killing strategies as they make their way toward a rumored safe haven in Los Angeles.

I just thought this movie was just trying too hard to be a funny horror movie. For one thing, this movie have nothing horror to it at all. There was nothing scary or remotely scary to any of it. The movie is more of just a comedy, and that is all. The second problem that I found in the movie was it was not really that funny. It was just this whole awkward uncomfortable presence in the movie that was suppose to make the movie funny. It did not work. No one needs Twinkies that bad.

The cast was the problem with this movie. Woody Harrelson is not that good as a starring role. He is just mediocre. He is so much better as a supporting cast. He can nail that. The main problem is Jesse Eisenberg. His character sucked. There were all of these stupid rules for survival that he was making up as the movie went along. It seemed that the character was written just for him, because it is the same type of character that plays in almost every movie that he is in. That awkward nervousness is more annoying than anything else. I think he is the worst.

I know this review will not agree with most people out there, but it my opinion of it. I just was not impressed with the movie at all. I watched it twice, and it still just sat there. I know a lot of people love this movie. Enjoy.
