I had heard of Zombieland for about a decade now. I’m not sure why I haven’t seen it until now, but maybe that’s because I don’t really trust the horror genre much. But it did do well in 2009, so I definitely wanted to see it.
The movie is set a few months after zombies had taken over the world. One of the last survivors is a young man looking to find his estranged family. He knows some impressive steps to stay alive and kill as many zombies as possible.
He meets a gruff man who knows how to fight. He vows to only use nicknames. Since he was from Columbus, that’s his new name. The older man calls himself Tallahassee.
They eventually meet a young woman and her sister. Feeling pity and companionship, they offer the girls a hand… only to be betrayed. Survival is key and they easily became pawns. But will anyone survive at the end of the year?
Zombieland is about what I pictured it as, a good zombie movie. While it hasn’t done anything super special with zombies in general, they certainly do well making the humans shine in their own ways.
