So what we really have is a film that cannot be taken seriously either as a satire, as a period film and neither as a zombie film.

Remember Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? Probably not... Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is lots better, thanks to a swashbuckling central performance from Lily James.

... botches the zombie angle so badly it's mystifying.

Though P&P&Z is uneven and could have used more visual wit than it gets -- it's shot like a fairly standard underlit action-horror movie -- it mostly works.

The zombie crowd may be bummed by all the talking and prancing about. The Austen crowd is, well, not typically into zombies. But if you're in the sweet spot in the middle, it's oddly moving. And peppered with zombies!

The problem is that the movie offers just enough to tantalize both fan groups -- the Austenites and the horror fans -- but not enough to fully satisfy either.

It almost feels like the filmmaker was yelling "this isn't your mom's Jane Austen!" without realizing there's a lot going for Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice (and zombies) that we still like.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

... looks like someone mashed up a Zombie 5K with a Renaissance faire. It shouldn't work, but by sheer force of will and a game cast of actors, it's wonderful.

Serious question: does what goes in front of the camera matter anymore if the right properties are all in order?

The steampunk fashion by costume designer Julian Day -- all gothy greatcoats, bodices, lace-up boots and strappy leather holsters -- was about the only saving grace of two brainless hours.

If you're an Austen fan, be prepared to wince your way through original P&P bits.

Steers' adaptation of Grahame-Smith's source material is a heck of a lot of fun.

August 2, 2016
This adaptation of the spoof novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ditches some of the book's darker elements to make a streamlined female-empowerment story.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may have seemed like an interesting idea on paper, but when trying to combine these two elements on film, it makes for a narratively-befuddled experience in which they only get in each other's way.

Plucky and vulnerable in equal measure, [James] never forgets that this is just meant to be cheesy fun and clearly has a blast with her role.

April 7, 2016
Not quite a debacle, not at all a success, it ends up a thoroughly inconsequential adaptation that's unlikely to shepherd a new wave of mash-ups to the big screen.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies laughs at action cinema as a genre that has always left women in a weaker standing. [Full Review in Spanish]

Too often, Steers would rather flash a stockinged leg or plunging cleavage to quicken our pulses, where a few quality scares would have been infinity more rewarding.

April 5, 2016
The film isn't more than an effective joke and a mix of high and pop culture. [Full review in Spanish]
April 4, 2016
The lack of strenght in the narrative, or lack of ideas, make the whole film tumble down, specially in those obring action sequences that could've been much, much better.[Full review in Spanish]
