No one's peeped this yet? I just finally caught this over the weekend and it was without a doubt one of the best takes on the zombie movie genre. Woody Harrelson kills just about every scene he's in and even the off brand Michael Cera kid didn't annoy me all that much. I also enjoyed the mix of comedy and gore and I won't ruin the megastar cameo for you that almost steals the whole movie. The story does bog down towards the end as certain characters act against every instinct that they had used for the whole story leading up to it, but that's a minor complaint for such an enjoyable flick. Definitely a recommendation, 3.75/5 Marlons

I doubt I'm gonna see it I find myself switching to movies that focus on the present or the past and are more or less anchored in "reality". Zombie movies don't do it for me anymore. Guess I'm gettign old :D

Just saw this earlier today and really enjoyed it. I had high expectations of it because I always saw zombie-killing to possibly be a fun experience once you get past the initial terror of the situation, and this movie was looking to go that route. It definitely exceeded my expectations of this in the first 15 minutes alone. Woody Harrelson's "quest" was just hilarious. The reminders of the survival rules were great.

This part was probably the best moment of the movie, mainly because of its timing as things really started getting a bit slow just before. Left me exploding in laughter on the "cameo's" exit.

I was kind of feeling the change because, at that point, what other reason did each of them have for survival? They had all found/lost what they were looking for.

Overall, good film. Great zombie-film. A must-see if you like that genre.

*A huge bonus was the zombie-clown scene, as I share that kid's fear/hatred of those disgusting, red-nosed, floppy shoe-wearing creatures.

Like most films about Zombies, this film isnt about zombies but more about what people that in the end of the world would do when they are all alone and how treasuring the little things really does matter in the big picture of things.
The film hardly even has enough zombie scenes compared to a film like Shaun of the Dead(which is also a comedy Zombie film) but it still manages to keep you entertained and interested. There are roll on the floor, laugh on your ass funny scenes in this movie and there are also very touching and scenes in it and of course...there are scary ass zombie scenes in parts of it. I think this film has certainly one of the best opening scenes you will see all year, it loses steam half way through but picks up at the end and I would love if they made a sequel to this.

check it out...Domel, I am sure you will enjoy it, because it is a fun and bloody (pun intended) brilliant film.

def. 3.75 out of 5.

I've been avoiding commenting on that.
