What to know

critics consensus

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies manages to wring a few fun moments out of its premise, but never delivers the thoroughly kooky mashup its title suggests. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

    While this is a fascinating experiment in genre work and something I would love to see more of, in this case it just doesn't work as well as I wanted it to. It gets a moderate positive from me because it is, in the end, good enough. When I compare it to it's authors other adapted work though, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, there's been a step down. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter deftly combined a biographical narrative with badass action and an interesting vampire mythology. For Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the ingredients are there, but they're not explored or synchronized nearly as well. Pride and Prejudice probably gets the most attention, and really the story will stop full tilt to become a P&P movie at times. Admittedly a more badass one with Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy actually in physical conflict over their disagreements, and I kind of liked this new take on the narrative with a more kickass Bennett, but it's still just P&P. And then it will just be interrupted by zombies. And the zombie stuff is okay. It's watered down PG-13 zombie action, but it's fun enough. And the biggest missed opportunity of all, a zombie conspiracy involving intelligent zombies, a religion, and an army of the damned. It's fascinating stuff! It's also confusing, weird, and barely explored. Perhaps I'm being too hard on the movie though. It has its merits, I assure you. For one, the cast in universally excellent, and they are able to play their dual roles as Pride & Prejudice alums and badass zombie slayers in equal measure. The thing I enjoyed most about this movie though was its unique setting for the apocalyptic fiction. Most zombie stories are set in modern day, or a far off and ruined future. 19th Century England is, if nothing else, a unique take. At first I thought it was weird and forced how they continued with their parties and royalty in a zombie apocalypse. But then I thought, English people of this era? Yeah, they would wouldn't they. It's a unique take separate from the lone streets of The Walking Dead, and there old timey methods of hunting made for fun slaying. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a movie that's never as fun as its title. It's still a unique take on both Pride & Prejudice and zombie fiction though, and while it isn't the kickass film I wanted it to be, it was enough fun to keep me satisfied.

    Urgh. Watch the Jane Austen episode of Red Dwarf instead.

    Not enough Austen and not enough zombies leaves this floundering somewhere in between.

    Better than it had any right being, but still not very good.
