As soon as I watched the trailer of this film, from that moment I decided to watch this film. It was looking like full of comedy with the taste of horror. That is, a horror film is being shown us in a comedic way. Just like the series of the “Scary Movies”. But as expected from the trailer, the film didn’t turn that kind of. Although the maker did succeed in giving us fun, entertainment and a ride to the laughter station, but only in parts.
We must have seen many films where some virus has been spread out in the city and the humans are turned into some kind of monster (Zombies) who eats live human beings after killing them, and the virus is also transferable.
The story of this film is also somewhat like that, where in the very first of film it’s been already shown us that the whole city is being infected by this and the very few human beings are left and they are trying to save themselves from these zombies. First the Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is on a run and on his journey he met Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), and later they both started their journey together. Columbus was having a phobic nature. He was very quiet and very simply guy, and scares almost everytime. Tallahassee was the totally opposite of it. He was the brave macho man and loves to kill zombies each and every time. Now on their journey, they met two sisters, Wichita & Little Rock (Emma Stone & Abigail Breslin), who were crook in general. With a nice, genuine and gentleman’s attitude Columbus and Tallahassee tried to help them, but they both always make a fool to them and by crook stealing everything from weapons to accessories to their vehicles everytime. This stealing and fooling session goes till the end of the movie until Columbus and Wichita falls in love with each other and Tallahassee and Little Rock felt like a Father and a Daughter relation, as because Tallahassee lost his small little son by Zombie’s.
Overall it’s about something 1hr 30mins film, where the initial some about half-n-hour is good and can be rated as 2.5-3stars. Where the middle half-n-hour is boring and stretchy, but still finds you Ok. So you can rate it 2stars for that. And the last half-n-hour is something speedy and somewhat entertaining also, so you can rate it that by 3stars.
Performances I think all of them were great. And the special appearance by “Bill Murray” was just seemed Ok. It didn’t add some happening charm in the film. And rest everything was good.
The overall movie was good, not that bad. Will definitely give you the feel of comic in some scenes with the taste of horror. Especially the “Rule No.” theme was awesome and very funny, and I definitely liked that.
3 / 5 - Good for one time watch, but I guess not that kind of movie to spend it on multiplexes. Watch it on Home Theatres instead.
