Imagine a zombie-infested world, all law and government destroyed. No rules. If you found yourself in this situation, what would be the first thing you would do? If you responded to that question, “I would find the world’s last Twinkie and go to a theme park,” then Zombieland is the movie for you. The new comedy/horror movie stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. Eisenberg and Harrelson play two unlikely men surviving in the devastated world, both looking for something. Harrelson has been trying to find the world’s last Twinkie since the infection started. Eisenberg is trying to get back to his home town, Columbus, Ohio, to find his parents. When the two men find lovely Wichita (Emma Stone) and her sister Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), the four set out to the find the one place in the world that is not overrun by zombies, Pacific Playland.
The movie is filled with enough gore and exploding heads to keep most people gagging and definitely enough comedy to make any person with a sense of humor laughing until the credits finish rolling. Most of the movie consists of Columbus (Eisenberg) and Tallahassee (Harrelson) searching for a Twinkie in various supermarkets and crashed delivery trucks. The plot of the movie revolves around 32 “rules” that Columbus lives by, and he says those rules are the only reason he is still alive. As previously stated, the movie is filled with enough comedy to keep most people laughing, but it also includes little scenes of zombies jumping out of closets and crevices that made everybody in the theater jump right out of their seats.
Nothing about this movie disappointed expect for the fact that the whole time I was watching the movie I knew there wasn’t going to be any real closure for the characters at the end of the movie. What kind of closure could you ever give a zombie movie? Overall, the movie was pretty much a road trip through Hades, and the first thing that will come to most people’s heads after seeing it is, National Lampoons Vacation with Zombies. The never ending comedy and remarkable action scenes made this film probably one of the best movies I have seen since The Hangover. I give this motion picture an A-.
