Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Familiar with the classic Jane Austen tale of social classes and relationship entanglements set in 19th Century England? This is that, but with zombies. Stars Lily James as Elizabeth and Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy. Co-stars Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey.

A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.

A moderately entertaining film, not deficient in old-fashioned costume drama when it pleases, nor in the power of being clever where it chooses, but awkward and unsatisfying.

For the most part a surprisingly fun, bloody take on Jane Austen’s classic – but it does turn stale as the final reckoning approaches.

An odd, inconsequential but not entirely charmless misfire...

Delivers what its title promises: a little romance and some undead villains, plus a bit of comedy.

Lumbering, lifeless, and—strange thing to say about a cadaver—almost entirely charmless.

Daft, but mildly entertaining.

The result should appeal to Austen aficionados and horror hounds alike—which is not a sentence you get to write too often.

Only intermittently entertaining, and a better adaptation of Austen than a monster mash.
