Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

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.

Movie Info

A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) 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.

Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

All Critics (185) | Top Critics (41)

  • The movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither.

    Feb 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's entertaining at first that our heroine and hero can slay zombies as expertly as they parry quips but the joke wears thin.

    Feb 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies does exactly what it says on the tin, rather entertainingly too, especially if you have seen one too many tasteful television adaptations of Austen's work.

  • This seems like it's just laughing at Austen. It feels like anti-fan-fiction.

    Feb 11, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The bottom line is that Burr Steers' adaptation is unlikely to please any audience regardless of what they're looking for.

    Feb 6, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a perfect film for our mash-up/viral culture in which short, clever, easily digestible bits of entertainment are passed along giddily from friend to friend. But most shareable YouTube videos run a couple minutes. "Zombies" is much, much longer.

    Urgh. Watch the Jane Austen episode of Red Dwarf instead.
    Daniel P Super Reviewer
  • Nov 22, 2016
    Not enough Austen and not enough zombies leaves this floundering somewhere in between.
    Marcus W Super Reviewer
  • Sep 12, 2016
    Better than it had any right being, but still not very good.
    Gimly M Super Reviewer
  • Jul 10, 2016
    It takes itself seriously as an Austen adaptation... but as a zombie movie less so. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" may sound like a tonal nightmare (at times; it's close), but a charismatic/ game cast sell it for more than it should be worth. It's actually pretty fun.
